Another mystery touring car

Recommended Posts

I searched for an octagon emblem that looked similar and found a Westcott around 1916. Looking at the Standard Catalog, it might be a match.

I don't know the make of car but the fellow leaning against it looks a lot like Anton Westgard.

Oldford, that Westcott is a definite match for me.

 

Look at the base of the windshield and compare the two.

Thanks for the assistance. There is a Westcott here in NZ, 1917 I think, a very original car but I have not seen it. Regarding the second car I did think looked Winton-ish (?) but didn't think it looked big enough. Checking The Standard Catalog I see that from 1916-1920 Winton built a smaller model on a wheelbase ten inches shorter than their big car, so I guess this is one of these. There is a story regarding the Winton crash here  -  http://ghostsofdc.org/2012/02/04/watch-out-for-that-tree-mailbox-lamp-post-and-emergency-callbox/#at_pco=smlrebh-1.0&at_si=5a4e7e10dec57665&at_ab=per-2&at_pos=3&at_tot=4
