We need some help to determine manufacturer and year of this Large Touring Car. Picture was taken in Oak Harbor, Ohio. It appears to have 3 rows of seating. Thanks, Bill
Franklin, 1906-1906. 6 cylinder air cooled.
Jump seats, 7 passenger
It looks like a 1910 Rambler to me. Note the radiator cap, the spare tire on the right side that looks like it has a wheel in it, and the small, square electric sidelights.
My first barely a glance said "Franklin". Then it didn't seem quite right. Next thought was also Rambler. The angle of the photo doesn't really show it, but Rambler had very distinctive radiator designs (for several years, the core sets back from the outer surround). This looks like it may be that way.
I would have to dig into a lot of old photos and research books to be certain. But I think 1910 (give or take one year) Rambler would be my best guess.
me thinking maybe 1908 Ranier
It's definitely a Rambler as Chris posted earlier.
Thank you for the fast responses. The driver is my neighbors great great grandfather. Picture was taken with his house in the background.
Saw this pic of a 1910 rambler on the Web. It shows the same rear fender and possibly the spring assembly behind the rear tire. Bill
It is definatly 1910 rambler model 55. Good clues in addition the ones already mentioned are the hood latches, electric side lites (1910 only) the door latches,the thresholds between the dash and front seat, the windshield brace and the step under the rear door and it obviously has jump seats which makes it seven passenger. I own a 1910 rambler modeled 54 which is 5 passenger. The have 432 cubic inch engine and they will go!
A friend of mine has a Rambler, slightly newer than that one, about a '12 I think. I also used to know a fellow that had a Jeffery from the first year after the name change. The two cars were similar, both incredible tour cars.
Dale K, Can you share a few pictures of yours?
Well, I stand corrected by a true expert Mr Kemmerer, he may be older than me but his eye site is far superior.
