Here's an old photo from Sweden. Looks like an american car from the early 20's but what is it?
The second photo is the hubcap as far as it can be enlarged from the original photo.
It looks a little like a condensing Stanley to me.
That was going to be my guess, too.
It does resemble a stanley, but it has a motometer and lacks the burner access flap on the running board. The front end resembles an essex I saw recently.
1920 Cleveland model 40
Nice catch Dale. The peanut shape hub cap:
Yep, that distinctive hubcap! It was also used as the shape of the rear window.
Cleveland was a lower priced car produced by Chandler.
Earlier this summer, I picked up this Cleveland hubcap for a National Wire Wheel (same company that made Pasco wire wheels for Fords, Chevrolet 490s and Overland 4s).
Thanks, I knew I could count on you guys
I think it may actually be a 1919 Cleveland- it has no exterior door handles, which 1920 models definitely had. 1919 was the first year of production for Clevelands.
Now, the question is; Was this car exported to Sweden and the photograph taken there, or did someone in the U.S. send a picture to the folks back home showing off their big ol' American touring car?
It is definitely an early Cleveland Model 40. I have a 1920 4-door sedan. This touring has a 1-man top. Bodies were very dark blue (almost black) with black fenders.
