Found this car body in a gully the other day and don't have a clue what it is. Any ideas? Thanks

No clue here, but some manufacturers put ID tags inside the cowl. Take a look at the other side of the firewall. Maybe you'll get lucky.

Dependable Dodge.

That can attached to the firewall is what's left of a Stewart vacuum tank.

Erik,

How do you figure it was a screen side truck from those photos?

I think I have its twin brother.
I am guessing Dodge as well.

I agree that it's a Dodge. I was following a 1917 dodge yesterday and was noticing the narrow raised section in the fenders.

John & JD, Definitely Dodge, and I'll stick my neck out here and say early to mid 1916; the glove box, number of holes in the dash, and the slot above the steering column clamp area (for the choke rod) all matches my May '16 Dodge. The headlights appear to have wire retaining clips, not stamped metal ones, which also shows early production.

My dash, with gauges out & glovebox door off.

BTW, John, if that glovebox lock is intact, it's probably worth more than the body remains--they are SCARCE!
