Early Mystery Truck Identification needed

12 posts in this topic

I have a request from a local business owner that is trying to identify the make and model of a truck used by their business. Judging from the appearance of their family member in the photo, they suspect the photo was taken sometime around 1910. They sent the photo as a PDF file and I apologize that I have no idea how to rotate the photo.

HI,

Looks like a cca 1910 Maxwell. The dumbirons are a bit chunky, but guess this was for a pickup truck.

PS I note from a 1919 photo that the Maxwell truck had that type of dumbiron. Does not tie in with the suggested date of the photo; nine years out?

I am not good on identifications such as this. With a quick google search, I just found a 1917 Maxwell photo online that looks close too. Thanks again for your help.

Front fenders look more like 1907 and earlier Maxwell trucks.

My source tells me 1906 Model H or 1907 Model HB Maxwell truck, the bulge on the side of the hood ( and there was another on the other side) was for one of the engine cylinders, yes a 2 cylinder engine.

Hi,

In fairness it was the AACA who helped me with the first Maxwell ID which, on reflection, looks very much like the one on the enquiry picture. It was identified as a 1905 Model H. Once those side pods are seen, never forgotten. Just forgot to look on my own site!!!! See SVVS Web Assistance with Classic, Vintage and Veteran Cars fourth item down.
