John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara in a 1914 Stutz-Bearcat
One of the greatest big screen cowboy's of all time!
It seems strange if only to me to see right hand drive and bails on the head lights in 1914?? Any idea where the car is now? Great picture,and i thank you! Bud in Wheeler where the local Dairy farmer just fed the wild turkey's hot lunch!! Bud.
That still is from "The Wings of Eagles", 1957.
my f.w.d. uses the same motor. charley
Lots of American cars remained RH drive into the late teens. Pierce Arrow is most notable for this. Not sure if those lamps are correct or not, in the 1950's a lot of old cars were restored with odd details and often the model years were disregarded because for whatever reason it was important to have your car be "older".
This is why today it is impossible to find a 1908 or 1909 Model K Ford, even though the current owners are typically well aware of when the car was built and / or sold.
Model K, 1906-1908.
Ford 101: a 1908 Ford K, N, S, or S Roadster, sold in 1909 is still, and always will be, a 1908 model.
A 1909 Ford T, sold in 1908, is still a 1909 model.
Maureen O'Hara just passed away a few months ago.
Her and John Wayne made several movies together.
One of my favorite movies is "The Quiet Man" starring Maureen O'Hara and John Wayne:

Thank you for posting the great car with great actors Marv.
