This is my friend great-grandfather's car. Any idea on the make?
Taylor, If you can save the images on your iPhone's Photo Album app, you cold post larger versions. one of our Forum members will know what it is - and probably a lot more.
Here is a larger photo.
Thanks Mark you beat me to it!
I don't know the make, but that is a mighty interesting signal device, and it looks like someone gave the car a swift kick to the cowl.
It looks like a 1927 Whippet model 96 to me.
I think it is a 1925 Chrysler sedan.
The bucket headlights were only used in the first few years of Chrysler
production ... a carry-over from Maxwell ? They went to a bullet shaped
back pretty soon after.
I'm wrong... it's a Chrysler....(oops)...
That style, the basic body lines, slight offset cowl, double belt line, was very common, for about four years. Chrysler, Paige, REO, about a dozen other cars, look very much alike in photos. Whippet, was a smaller car when seen in person or next to any of the others, but was quite stylish for the day and without a size reference, looks very similar. But yes, I am fairly sure that one is a Chrysler.
Drum style headlamps dominated the industry for only about four years. A few cars used them before about 1924, and only a very few after 1927. Packard, tended to be conservative on styling and had large drum headlamps through 1928 model year.
Just a few of my silly observations.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
