If it's any help, my 1910 Buick model 17 has the same pipe thread sockets for the top irons.
Could be for a smaller Buick.

Yes Buick and REO used the 1/2" pipe connection. Could be a standard of the time or more likely a major body manufacturer feature. Does anyone know what manufacturer made REO and Buick bodies and bodies for other car brands?

A lot of early wood bodies were built in Amesbury, Mass. That seemed to be the epicenter for that industry in the early automotive era. The US automotive industry was born in the Northeast, Boston area. Until Detroit was decided as a better place due to the strategic position for accessible Iron, timber and coal.
