Keith - Yes, that windshield looks like hand-blown plate glass, like you might see in very old house windows.

This is the kind that you absolutely do not want to have in your car!!

I got some glass like that from a friend who was replacing the windows on his very old house. I used it for decorative glass in a china cabinet. He called it "float glass". I don't know how it was made.

That car is an Argo.

A good friend of my dad had an Argo roadster - I saw it many times while growing up.

My opinion is that an Argo is one step above a cycle car and one step below a Saxon roadster.

FYI -

Float glass is made by floating glass on liquid tin so it has smooth surfaces. Most automobile, agricultural, and window glass is made that way today.

Before float glass glassblowers would make a cylinder or ball and it to make it flat.
This glass usually had the remnants of the place the blowpipe was attached to the glass.
It looks somewhat like a bulls eye.
