Hi all. Does anybody recognise this car? Lots of pre #2500 features on it. The licence plate might be a clue. Who owned it and where is it now?

Andrew, Peter Eastwood would know where it it. I think it's in a warehouse in Carson, CA.

By chance i happened to be at the PETERSON MUSEUM the day #216 arrived [pictured below on it.s arrival with a loan RHF wheel].
I always believed it was still at the museum.

The first car pictured is #714, owned by my Dad from 1953 to 1965. My Dad sold it to Bill Harrah, it later sold & is now in the Los Angeles County museum warehouse.
The second car (on trailer) is car #1400
owned by me around 10 years ago, and still here in southern california.

#1400 has made the Rounds
It was Built Mar 12,1909 and shipped to Minneapolis.
Its 1st Owner was J.A. Schisler. It was later in the Burds Antique Museum in Waterloo,Iowa for over 30 years until it closed in 1959 then it was purchased by Ben Snyder. Ben owned it for about 3 years and sold it to Harrah's.Next Owner was Chris Edggard's and Peter Eastwood purchased it from Chris' Estate and later sold it to Ken Gooding.Ken sold it to its present owner who lives in Monrovia.
i can remember seeing it at Chris house when he owned it and he told me how he sold an Early Engine to someone who traveled many miles to get it and I asked Chris what he thought of #1400 when he saw it and he said he never saw it.I asked why and his answer was "He never asked to see it" it was only a few feet away in a locked trailer-Those who knew Chris --he was a trip!

-Don

PS That's all I can remember as my memory is not what it used to be (maybe Peter remembers the rest)but I think Chris said it also went to Europe for awhile

Before reading any of the comments I knew it was in southern California. :-)
