    1920’s Mannesmann Auto

    Edit did not seem to work. The Mannesmann 5'20 in the book shows a right hand drive car, as do other photos of their cars racing. Vintman

    1920’s Mannesmann Auto

    From my 'Deutsche Autos', German car indeed made by the Mannesman company better known for their Mannesman Mulag lorries/busses. This looks like the little Mannesman 5'20PS W2 Sports Two-Seater built between 1923 and 1927, similar to the 5’25. Earlier car in 1923'1924 was the W1 4'16. Later came the 8'25 which was quite successful in racing. In 1927 they took on a licence to build the Rickenbacker 8 but this was not a great success and the car production stopped 1929. Current company was restructured in 1977. Regards Vintman.

    Hi All, As I am still in search of the elusive cigar, I have been asking our contributing experts to the SVVS Help Pages as to what this may be, if not an Argyll to which it is in many ways very similar. Argyll experimented with shapes of radiators in the early days, going quite unrecognisably different. The shape did stabilise later on, as did variations in radiator badges. Our veterans expert Ariejan Bos has suggested that it is a cca 1907 Pullman Touring car made by the York Motor Car Co, York, PA, USA. Not many photos of early Pullman show the radiator and the front in any detail, although quite a few advertisements show the car side on. Examination in detail of the Pullman and the enquiry photo, show one strong pointer in common. The Pullman bonnet hinge is composed of a number of quite wide hinge sections rather than one continuous hinge. Another item is the drag link but it is very difficult to determine if it was in front or behind the axle. On the photo it seems to be forward, like the Argyll. The radiator filler cap is taller but seems different shape on different Pullman photos. It is also difficult to say if Pullman cars had louvers in the bonnet. The picture shows mudguards with a lip. Most Pullman photos show plain swept wings. Notwithstanding, I tend to agree with Ariejan that it probably is a Pullman. It would be interesting however to see other examples of Pullman fronts and radiator badges. Regards Vintman (UK)

    Please help identify these cars

    Hi, while not experts on American cars, our sytem suggests a look at the cca 1916/18 Elgin as a possible contender ? Regards Vintman (UK)
  7. Very top picture would indeed seem to be a Clement Bayard. From smooth bulkhead to rad, and small square doors with small hinges, this woulkd seem to be a cca 1913/14 Clement Bayard 10'12. Lower photo is a indeed Citroen 5HP. Registration XO 1344, if UK, is London County Council about June 1923. Vintman (UK)
  8. Bottom picture of the three seems to be a cca 1916/17 Ford Model T. Photo of front of bonnet would help. Vintman (UK)

    Another Car Identification Wanted - British

    Hi, Registration is from UK, from County Council of Northampton issued late 1929. It does indeed seem to be a Hillman 14 and the detail of the bonnet without the later catches and handle does confirm the year as 1929. Regards Vintman (UK)

    Last Denhart still farming

    Our contributor Ariejan Bos has just advised this is cca 1911 International Harvester Tourer. IHC made mainly robust high wheelers 1907-11. This would seem to be the Model J 26’30 HP four cylinder made for only one year before car division closed, favouring manufacture of trucks. So this is a rare bird indeed although some seem to have survived according to the internet. Regards Vintman (UK)

    It seems to have gone very quiet on this one. Anybody have any other ideas? Vintman

    Last Denhart still farming

    Going back to the what could be the letters on the radiator perhaps RS; the French "Rochet Schneider" logo letters and frontal appearance is not far off, but for the axle?? Vintman

    Last Denhart still farming

    HI Folks, Had enquiry on our Help Pages from Illinois USA asking if we can identify the car in the attached photo. So far we have not had much sucess so wondered if any of you had some ideas. This is a large enlargement of a small detail of a much larger photo showing farm house. There seems to be a trace of two letters on left top of radiator, last which seems an S. Am I seeing an RS?? Regards Vintman (UK)

    Have corrected and reshaped the photo, but none the wiser! Vintman

    photo from my grandmothers

    My thought from the rear wheel hub and relatively pointed radiator was that it was a Cadillac. Suggested contact our Dutch veteran expert Ariejan Bos who also thinks Cadillac but pinpoints it to a 1909 vintage. He said it looks too short for a touring car, so more like a Toy Tonneau (Demi-Tonneau). This would make it a four cylinder cca 1909 Cadillac Model 30 Demi-Tonneau. Cost new $1,400. Vintman
