A client had this photo on her wall. She asked what kind of car ?
I said I knew just where to ask !
My question is, what do we call the type of hat worn by the chap on the far right ?
These are often more pointed at the top, but are the perfect period hat for a TT-driving
Lastly, where can a person find one ??? A fella at a swap meet was selling really
nice heavy felt examples at the Monroe Swap Meet thirty years ago, but I have never
seen any since. Mr. Google pulls up cheesy costume versions that just aren't *right*,
but nothing that appears to be of reasonably high quality, even for a floppy old felt
It's an Overland.
I think the hat is a tall crown fedora or an open crown fedora.
For a particular brand, try open crown Stetson.
Burger, try this mob
1913 ? 1914 ? I thought it was an Overland ! Looks like I am getting
better with some of these early cars.
5 pages of men's hats and nothing close !

One of my favorite clothing sources:
This looks about right:
Overland script right there on the hood top panel.
And the name continues on!
I had forgotten that delightful hood script Layden.
Thanks for reminding me.
Burger those hats look like flat brimmed Montana Crown style hats, they can have 3 or 4 dents and a slight peak, from a distance and an old B&W photo the dents won't show up.
try this one Burger
Or this one if you like the stetson name
Those individual cast cylinders, aluminium crankcase, intake and water outlet manifolds, open flywheel and cone clutch.
Handsome engines even if a ball of rust!
Thanks for the PID, Charley.
Layden, what's that Overland logo on??
David D, Just a few years ago, Chrysler/Jeep had a limited edition Overland model Jeep Grand Cherokee. Paying homage to their Willys Overland heritage.
I am guessing that is where it is from.
You are up late again! Now, I told you. Don't become like me!
