That's one heck of a sign on the building. Wonder if it could be seen from the freeway...oh, nevermind...

Maybe they had a shortage of front fenders that day.

Best regards.

Brian asked:

"Maybe they had a shortage of front fenders that day. "

Sure, and they parked all of the cars outside so as to not hold up the assembly line. So much for "just in time" delivery.....
With tongue firmly in cheek. Bill

I think those are the big Chevs, not the 490s.

Quarter-elliptic front springs make these 490s.
The slanted back windshield was a new feature for 1918. These are not 1920 though as they have single rear windows in the tops and splash aprons appear to be for straight fenders ( no reverse curve at the running board).
