  1. I guess it could also be 1914? http://www.ebay.ca/itm/1914-Buick-Model-B55-ORIGINAL-Factory-Photo-oad9780-/291974136451?hash=item43fb03c283:g:6PAAAOSwcUBYVFej http://www.ebay.ca/itm/1915-Buick-Model-C55-ORIGINAL-Factory-Photo-oad9785-/291974137165?hash=item43fb03c54d:g:6d4AAOSwcUBYVFep
  2. Keiser is partly right in that it is a 1915 car. Your pic is of a four cylinder model. The new 'light six' D-45 only came out in mid 1915 for 1916. I reckon our mystery car is the big 331 cubic inch 1915 Model C-55 six. I think the 1916 D55 had the new styling like the D45 but don't know for sure. The big six was only built 1914-16. This pic is a 1916 car which bears out my thoughts on the new 1916 styling. The big six had its cylinders in pairs.
  3. As Dosmo says it is just a two door sedan. The version with a trunk was called a two door touring sedan. The Sloper - which is really a colloquial term - is the Australian Holden body two door 'All Enclosed Coupe'. The body style was put many GM products of the era. This one is a '38. but they all looked much the same.
  4. The previous two bikes are not dated but this one is dated 1916 and has the same style of chair body but has different mounting to the bike - one bar vs two. Note the OP does not have the tank top tool box. I think much of that stuff was optional.
  5. This overly restored one has the same type of gas reservoir and horn as the OP.
  6. Not a Harley - the forks are wrong. It is an Indian Powerplus from the late teens - date uncertain. Note the forks and sidecar mounts on this one -
  7. Chevrolets used quarter elliptic rear springs but their chassis is much more abbreviated. The casting codes from the diff might help identify who built it.
  8. Had a better look. These springs are quarter elliptics and not cantilever. Start again! Here is an example of Buick cantilevers from the 1920s -
  9. The six cylinder Buicks used cantilever springs but I hadn't checked the fours. Buicks, both four and six all got four wheel brakes for 1924. The pre 1924 sixes had full floating rear axles and had only six hub bolts. The Standard Six from 1925 on had twelve hub bolts. I am not sure about the details of the appearance of the rear axles of these Buicks though. There may have been another makes that used cantilever springs but I think Buick was by far the most numerous.
  10. Two wheel brakes and twelve bolts on the rear hub. I think maybe 1922 or 1923 four cylinder Buick. Not sure, but maybe other models as well?
  11. Seen it somewhere before. Maybe Cadillac??
  12. 1940 - http://www.buicks.net/shop/reference/engine_ident_52.html
  13. Mid teens Buicks have something like that.
  14. I note the plate is dated 1922. I think these cars were regularly raced with the fenders removed, and then they were replaced to drive home. Maybe someone made new fenders for it? The fender bracing rods are unusual too.
  15. Could be Studebaker but a couple of years earlier. The first of the new line of sixes started in 1918. This car could be a Light Six, which was renamed the Special Six when a new smaller Light Six came out a year or so later. The car in this pic is an NZ car which I know is an EH Light Six and not an SH (which is the four) as in the caption.
