Mid-teens touring

This is a friend's family photo; they asked what kind of car it is. 1916 Chevrolet 490 is the closest I could come up with.

 

Any other thoughts?

Not a Dodge. The body is similar, but the fenders have a lower crown on them. The Chevy 490 looks more like it.

I believe a Dodge would have a cover over the front of the rear sping mount on the splash apron in front of the rear fender. The cowl is better looking on a Dodge too I think. I also think a odgeD windshield would have points sticking up to catch the top. 

 

I am such a nerd.

I also considered '15 Buick small four-cylinder.  Honestly, they could be virtually identical to a Chevy for the purposes of what we see in the picture.

My ex-wife would straighten you out on those claims! LOL...

 

I'm just a semi-retired guy who has learned to use a very capable photo-editing application to a decent extent.

I would listen to her for about as long as you would listen to the wife walking out on me right now. 

 

At at least there are cars, beer, and right now, mushroom season.
