Looks like a 27 chassis and radiator with an earlier body, maybe a 25 body. The bumper is aftermarket. Looks like maybe a Model A bumper. I think someone assembled this car from parts and couldn't find a correct set of bows.
Look at that front axle! If you look carefully, you can see the rubber plug in the back of the body.
Looks like a bit of wood on the back holding the top upright. Is the hole for the bow bracket in the rear of the body just not visible? The top appears to be a bit short. From another make car maybe?
Perhaps he stopped at the Jamaica Loan company and they kept the top bows until he repays them.
Interesting white paint trim.
Gary, the white paint trim was used in Australia and England [and maybe other countries] during WW2 to make cars more visible at night when lighting was down. I have a pair of A model front mudguards, painted like that, in my swapmeet stuff.
I'm still learning about your US cars. To my untrained eye, the only thing 26-7 to me is the front axle beam with the curve between the perches. The rest looks 24-5 ish to me. The bumber bar is not T at all. How am I doing?
Allan from down under.
I'm wondering what the white "thingies" all along the top edge of the side of the body are. Some kind of tie-down fittings for carrying something on top of the car? Or maybe for side curtains? And altho' I hesitate to say it, whatever that is on the cowl, that almost looks like some kind of "female form" sticker or something,.....??? Naw,......if that was what it was, it would more likely be on the dashboard of the car, right? Interesting car though,......harold
I think somebody " Got it One Piece at a Time" ....
