  1. No, no and no. The photo is from a large and recently discovered collection from a chance acquaintance of my wife. He shared a few hundred with her (and me being somewhat tech savvy) and I've posted just car photos here (that I could not identify myself) to seek help in identifying them. The photos were mostly taken by the aquaintence's grandfather (I think) from about 1900 to the 1930s although I did spot a later 1960s car fender in one. Most of the photos are of farm life in eastern Iowa. Horse-powered everything. And a saw mill operation. I think he photographed every car that came to visit the farm.There were couple of the Mississippi river boat, The Capitol, that they took a cruise on in the 1930s.
  2. Try sending the photo to the county and ask them to check their vehicle purchase records? My uncle had one as a delivery vehicle for his grocery store. The model name was Cherokee. I remember riding in the back as a kid and I remember how noisy it was. There was no insulation or panels inside, just the steel shell that acted like a giant speaker to amplify every noise.
  3. The two horizontal trim lines are very similar, Buick vs Willys Knight.
  4. cross mounted spring in the front. hand crank through the radiator cover. Looks like a temperature gauge radiator cap. 12 spoke wood wheels. photo dated 1926.
  5. My first thought was "Okies." But this is in eastern Iowa outside the area of the famous dustbowl. The photo is one of hundreds form a collection and it's pretty clear the family farm was doing well. 1931 license plate.
  6. Thanks. I wonder if there is any relation to Mooneyes discs of SoCal?
  7. I think you nailed it. Thanks. http://www.seriouswheels.com/1920-1929/1926-Willys-Knight-Sedan-Grey-Black.htm
