It has some mods to keep it going. I wonder if the history of this car would be known.

That is about the time the VMCCA and HCCA were founded. An interesting time for car collectors.
Nice to see this.

That thing had a hard life. At the very least it has the front of another body grafted on, if not the whole body remade / replaced completely. Very likely a fold out seat underneath.

The steering column tube looks to be missing and also looks like a much larger steering wheel. It would be neat to see if it still exists today. If it has been restored, it is likely unrecognizable.

Walter, you missed the demountable wheels. Looks like 30 x 3.5" tyres all round too. If it has been restored, it may have a lot of 'period' stuff still on it.

The funny thing is, Mr. Power there probably griped about how the kid had no interest at all and the whole hobby would be dead in ten years...

I just passed over the demountables. With the tire situation at that time, it's a given that most people switched out to wheels of a more common size.

There is also something goofy going on with that front fender. It looks like it has been twisted to where the bottom edge that would be parallel to the road is now perpendicular.

That Spiceland Centennial must have been quite an event. There are several Google results for a booklet that was published and an Image search brings up photos of other parade entries.
