  1. This is a replica of the famous curved-dash Oldsmobile. It was manufactured by the Bliss Company of Canton, OH in 1958. You can find out more about this company at this link: http://www.conceptcarz.com/vehicle/z9279/Bliss_Surrey.aspx
  2. The headlamps seem mounted much too high to be a Cadillac. Normally, this would indicate Hupmobile to me, but it doesn't look like a Hupp either.
  3. I'm guessing 490 Chevrolet 1916-1922.
  4. That little "crease" or dip on the top of the hood makes me think it might be a White... probably around 1912.
  5. A little rough, but an honest, unmolested original. The biggest problem is rustout at the bottom of the body. I've got a couple of the proper patch panels that will go with the car. Top irons are included and are in very good condition. The front bow is broken but the others are usable. Some extra parts go with this car. This is not a rust-bucket or piece of junk. It will be a challenging restoration, but is very restorable. It runs and drives quite good. Contact me, come look, let me take you for a ride in it and decide. Asking $8500.

  6. Agreed. That gearbox at the top of the steering column is a giveaway.
  7. Both engines are definately Chevrolet. The first engine is probably out of a 490 model (1916-1922) though is could be an early 1923 Superior. The square generator is the tipoff here. The next engine is 1925-1927. '25 was the first year of an enclosed flywheel. '28 had dual exhaust ports. So, this engine is somewhere in the middle. The casting numbers on the sides of the blocks would be a tremendous help in narrowing it down.
  8. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">semi-elliptic </div></div> Thank you. Yes, my error.
  9. I think it would be key to look at the brake drums. They do not have studs (that would accept a lugnut) like a Ford product. They appear to want bolts to hold the wheels on. I'm leaning towards a Chrysler product.
  10. Definately NOT a Ford... note the quarter elliptic springs.
  11. The two cars on the right are Buicks... probably around 1927
  12. I would tend towards gas cap since it seems to have a provision for ventilation.
  13. The split windshield and chrome spears on the rear fenders lead me to favor Chrysler. I don't think it's a Lincoln.
