Hello,
Here's an old US picture with an unknown car.
Looks like its from 1920 or thereabouts.
Can't recognize the brand - first I saw it had quarter elliptic springs and thought Chxxy 490, then I saw the double parallel springs in front - it's more advanced than the 490.

My guess is a 1915 Baby Grand Chevrolet.
Just a guess.
Rich

Second guess is a 490 Chevy. Maybe 1916 with that spring design.

Thanks Rich, I've only seen later ones with a single quarter elliptic spring per side. Guess Chevy had to pinch pennies just like Ford to try to earn a dollar in the low price field :-)
