The steering column knobs look NRS?

Steering is on the wrong side unless the photo is flipped. Nope it's not a Ford.

Looks like the remains of a "Bush" to me. Engine, radiator and fuel tank have been removed.

The photo is not flipped/reversed. They were left hand drive.

I think Tod is right. I think I can see the coil spring under the guy sitting in front.

Brush or Bush ?!?

Could be-he coil springs, shape of cowl, location of firewall tank- look like a Brush, circa 1908.

Too bad you cant clearly see the front (wooden?) axle

A few days ago I saw a Brush advertised for sale, in the Atlanta GA area, I believe.

Yes Rich, you are correct. "Bush" was a typo. It was supposed to read "Brush".

The Brush was a single cylinder car. A friend of mine has one. He always likes to tell people that "They had a wooden body, a wooden frame, wooden axles and wooden start. ;)

This one in the Branson Auto and Farm Museum shows the wooden parts clearly.

This is likely the same car.

Looks like at least two of these old Boys are real, hard case, Cowboys, and the Driver has never seen a camera.

1908 or 1909 brush, could be a model b or model bc. i own a 1908 model bc.

looking a little closer the car in original picture is a model bc 1908 or 1909. the museum car is a 1908 model b .

Brian, is your Brush running? They are delightful cars. I rode in a 1910 for half a day. It was most memorable.
Rich

Brush was the 1st car with full floating axles as they were made from wood.

What is the purpose of the pipe coming from front of the firewall


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Richard Eagle Idaho Falls on Monday, February 12, 2018 - 03:45 pm:

I can't figure it out Lenney. It looks like the elbow is connected to some sort of tank. Certainly not what was there originally.

I think the pipe is the free-standing single cylinder engine's exhaust pipe and it is just an optical illusion that it looks like it is connected to the firewall

The pipe is a drain for the drivers urinal that is on the other side of the firewall that you can't see in the picture. That way he can drive coast to coast non stop

Dennis, I suppose being a one cylinder engine the crankshaft would have one rod urinal and two main urinals. &o{
