Can you id this car?
« on: July 13, 2018, 12:36:18 PM »
Make, model, and year?  It's from an old family photo.  No useful information on the back.  I only know that it's our family, but we're trying to get a time frame from the vehicle.  This is cropped from a larger picture.
The idea that a four-year degree is the only path to worthwhile knowledge is insane.

No expert in cars of that age, but I'm guessing a Model T...

It looks close but the front fenders don't quite match.

I'm not that old to say, but I don't think it's a ford. There are so many car makers that are history, I can't remember most that fit that description.
Have you tried googling picture's of old cars? I'd try that and see what you come up with.

The fenders differ a bit over the years and model. I would suggest it's a Ford Runabout maybe around 1911-14. Compare the horn, the roof folding mechanism and fenders of this 1913 model.

please forgive me my painting skills ;)

I love old photos, especially like this when some history of them is known. And your family had these vehicles early too. Thanks for sharing.

Doesn’t look like a Ford.  The radiator badge looks more like a Chrevrolet bow-tie, but the car doesn’t match pics I looked up.  The fenders are uniquely shaped, which should help....
