Maxwell Jasper Green’s Auto Repair Shop – The Euclid Garage – Part III: Today we are back with a photo from the Maxwell Jasper Green collection showing a very interesting mystery car. Max and his brothers, having been in the automobile salvage business, may have built this car out of the parts of others, as they did with another special that we will share with you soon. See another photo of this car and tell us what you know about it @ http://theoldmotor.com/?p=107980
It's got two flat tire or the guy sitting on it is heavier than he looks.
Those wheels look like the ones on my '26 Buick but the spokes are a lot thinner could they have shaved them down for some reason?
"Those wheels look like the ones on my '26 Buick but the spokes are a lot thinner could they have shaved them down for some reason?"
Thanks for the comparison to the Buick, many wheels from the early teens' on thru the late 1920s look a lot alike. We believe that this car was built around 1915.
Can anyone ID the hubcap?
If that drastic drop in the frame below the firewall was factory it should be a clue.
From what I see, the guy in the vest looks like he's slept in his clothes for a week or so. The guy that's sitting's jacket looks three sizes to small and makes him look like Ichabod Crane. Everyone's pants have cuffs and all their cloths have a hand made appearance.
Herb, if only the tires stayed flat on top it wouldn't be a problem.
Well the guy on the left is giving the guy in the middle a look like "Where did you come from", so maybe he was just walking down the street and wanted to be in a picture?
The car is right hand drive.
The rear spring tells me the chassis is NOT a Buick.
The hub cap looks like Dodge Brothers.
If memory serves dodge brothers used a 5 bolt pattern for their de-mountable tires but I am entitled to a senior moment I believe this was a composition of cars and the drive may have been moved to the right side to get the driver away from the left side exhaust but the frame front spring set up and steering knuckle are just like the Buick, Oakland, Pontiac, Chevrolet etc... of the day
Here are pictures of my hub and front axel end I would be suprised if this were not a highly modified G.M frame
Nothing ruins a picture more than some damn fool humans standing between the car and the camera.
You know the point of taking the picture was to get a picture of the car.
People take so many pictures of owners standing in front of their car. They may as well take a picture of them under a tree. It is so much better to take a picture of them standing alongside or to left or right of the car.
A lot of pictures would also look better if you got down on your knees for the shot. Most photographers know a straight on shot when you are standing up results in a so-so picture.
If more people would learn the rule of nine we would see a lot of neat pictures .
Thanks for the Buick wheel photos, the hubs and the bolt pattern look very similar.
