where is that? i need those top bows and thats about all thats left! owner should be happy to sell
I can see how the rear corner probably got smacked but what in creation happened up front?
Nothing happened up front. The impact from the rear pushed the body and frame forward and bent the frame down maybe a foot right at the firewall/rear engine location. Same impact pushed the front fenders down and forward. Lots of good parts there--I've hauled in much worse.
Other driver must have been tapping on his typewriter while driving. :-)
I've restored worse!
Thank you Jay!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Ran when parked
I think it was a 1915 Touring, which nearly became Runabouth
Looks like a 1916 Touring to me.
What do you see it on Dave, think it looks like brass rims on the front lights
looks like a boulder dropped on it!
Ake, they look black on my little screen but I believe you.
This car looks like it was sandwiched between two objects. The rear fender is folded forward and the front fender is folded to the rear.
Icy road conditions. No telling what happened I just hope the driver wasn't hurt or worse. Kind of sure they were though.
Major impact ONLY from the back. otherwise the steering column would be bend/buckled. Drivers hands would at least have broken the wood steering wheel rim if the car was slammed into something in the front of it.
Looks like a T-bone to me. Flattened rear fender and impact on the center of the body causing the bend or drop at the fire wall. Something large and high like a truck.
