  1. Interior suggests it's the base Marquis for 1978, not mid-level Grand Marquis. http://www.lov2xlr8.no/brochures/mercury/78mq/78mq.html
  2. Hi Jeff, You may want to share this image with Marc Mougin if you have his contact info, as it is the Buenos Aires dealership where his Peerless was sold. TG
  3. Oxnard is on the coast, west of LA and south of Ventura. But the Merc looks like a good example, probably reupholstered and restored to some level.
  4. I imagine it was a privately owned garage that serviced all manner of cars and trucks. Not affiliated with any particular manufacturer. There were several in my town.
  5. The 1921 New London, CT, Sanborn Fire Insurance Map shows 3 buildings of a private service-type garage (and residence) at 40-48 Jefferson Ave. at the intersection of Wall and Grand streets. The structure(s) in your image at 48 Jefferson are still similarly configured. https://www.loc.gov/resource/g3784nm.g3784nm_g011521951/?sp=34&r=-0.188,0.001,1.5,0.63,0 TG
  6. The Elysium, Peerless Summer showroom in Cleveland, Ohio. Note how the passenger-side front doors are missing from both the 1926 Peerless Taxicabs in this Elysium showroom photo. Perhaps they were offered that way to use the space for luggage, or the buyer could specify a fully-enclosed driver's compartment. The 1927 survivor that exists in England has its passenger front door. https://forums.aaca.org/topic/184528-peerless-for-sale-department/page/4/?tab=comments#comment-1515246 TG
  7. 250 Peerless Taxicabs for New York City... From the April 30, 1926 Peerless Co-Operator. TG
  8. Thanks. Often press photos are months old when published, with editors relying on submitted material. The building shows workmen working, perhaps painters, so there's no telling the date of the images. TG
  9. The Peerless distributor in Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1930.
  10. This service truck of Peerless of Johnstown, PA appears to be made from a touring car, as the back doors are still visible. Wouldn't that be a fun find, tucked away somewhere and forgotten in a Pennsylvania barn? From the June 24, 1927 Peerless Co-Operator. TG
  11. Is it a Touring Sedan with trunk... ...Or a Sedan with rear spare?
  12. Only way to know for sure if it's a '39 with a '40 front clip would be to know its serial number. This is a '39 Nash Ambassador 8, at Hershey last year.
  13. From the 1962 Ford Taxi brochure - a V-8 was offered as well as a Six. Outside of big city fleet buyers, small taxi companies used whatever they could. http://www.oldcarbrochures.com/static/NA/Ford/1962_Ford/1962 Ford Taxicabs Brochure/index1.html
