I think this is the door-less version of the 1911 Torpedo Runabout which was called the Open Runabout. Both cars used the same chassis, fenders, hood, dash, and windshield, but there were no doors on an Open Runabout.
It appears to have been modified with electric headlights.
I think that might be the statue of Red Hawk behind the car.
Thanks Trent. I should have caught that.
looks like the body has been lowed down& the top bows mounted to the bottom of the seat. I think!! charley p.s. dam password
Herb, could you post the back of the photo please? I grew up in Waterloo and have collected many old Waterloo postcards. This is a much different view than any views I have. Thank you.
That picture was taken in Chilton WI. I could walk to that corner in less than five minutes. It is on the corner of Madison St. and Main St. or Hwy. 57 and 151 on the maps. Most of the buildings are still standing and the monument now sits in front of the Calumet Co. courthouse.
This is a 1908 postcard of the same street, about a block away.
Good follow up Royce!
Anyone want to comment on the radiator cap that is shown as a silhouette on the right side of the first photo?
Thank you Nathan. I knew that wasn't Waterloo.
Could the radiator ornament be a Musical Icon for the Harp?
