Default Need help identifying tool

Is the tool shown a Model A Ford tire iron and if so what is the years used and part number. The tool is 16 3/4 long.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Ditto. I had one for my 1929 Chevy coach I had in high school. It had the uncommon 20" wooden artillery wheels. The slot in the rim nut end was for opening and closing a lock on the split rims. The standard steel disc wheels also used it.

My 1931 Chevrolet has one in the trunk but whether it is original or a flea market find, I have no idea. I know it works well.

Thank you for all your help. I measured straight across flat side to flat side and it measures about 13/16”.
