  1. There are too many differences between years to mention here but major ones include four wheel brakes standard in 1927 and later although police flyers could have four wheel brakes since 1923. Radiator and shell change 1924 , Fender redesign in 1925, Steering wheel change from "fat man" style in 1926, pointed headlamps starting 1927 plus major instrument panel redesign and air cleaner added in 1927 , larger engine 384.8 C.I.D. up from 357.8 C.I.D. and 20" wheels in 1928 on and on
  2. 1926 123-B 4 passenger Sport Phaeton. Could be a 123-C Sport Phaeton with the aft windshield folded down. I mention this because it has outside door handles and tan canvas and dual sidemounts , nickeled windshield with windwings whereas the 123 A came with no outside door handles and rear spares and black rubberized top and trunk cover , wood wheels, and painted windshield but anything could be ordered as extra including other than black wheels which here are Buffalo wheels which were first offered in 1926 in addition to the previously used Standard Roller Bearing Company Rudge Whitworth wheels which were last used in 1926. The dual cowl was an extra cost item on 123-B sport phaeton.The body is a Brunn design built by American Body company of Buffalo, New York. Production was 147 123 A, 283 123-B sport (including extra cost Dual cowl and extra windshield) and 41 123-C Sport Dual windshield. 1926 is the last year for drum headlamps and Rudge wheels, first year for Buffalo wheels and Folberth W/S wiper and the first year a greyhound could be purchased extra.
  3. 1926 last year of drum headlamps and Rudge Whitworth wheels and first year Folberth w/s wiper taillamp missing on L/H side so most likely not in the U.S.A. with that different type license plate on trunk. Type 124B 7 passenger Sport touring with dual windshield, Brunn designed aluminum body by American 324 built.
  4. As Steve S stated Above the second truck is indeed an Autocar type XXI from 1911 to 1913 not earlier, not later.
  5. This most likely is a 1925/26 243 or 343 as it has the crowned one piece fenders and new two bar faced bumper but still has large fork mounted drum headlamps and is an eight as the headlamps are the large ones and looks like a 143" w.b.

  7. Thank you all for all of the "head scratching" as this Metz has been SOLD but not here.

    1903 Ford A

    Thank you Mr. Musician for wishing me so much luck twice in your message and the Automobile in question is indeed a 1903 Ford at least that is what all of the micrometer men said at Hershey as well as the Pennsylvania title and also the step plates. It is also interesting to note your use of the word "nitpick" originally referring to literally removing invisibly tiny louse eggs by hand. (Flea eggs)

    1903 Ford A

    Thank you gentlemen for your candid and honest assessments. I have seen an original engine which was offered to me but then a '''friend" talked the seller out of letting it go. There is a very capable fellow manufacturing new engines in Canada and the work is in process. The figures would come in below the $100K mentioned value and a partially correct car sold in June in Nederland for $166K I am of the opinion that this Brennan engined car with almost twice the horsepower of the 1903 original 8hp engine would be a fine reliable performer and one should not base their entire automotive plans on a L to B run which to say the least can be expensive and stressful. I saw nothing of Hershey this year as I was totally engaged with the two machines I took for sale. I brought them both home and am somewhat surprised as it was not due to a lack of interest. My only other regret is that I was never even able to get away long enough to get a Sherri's crabcake.

    1903 Ford A

    An incredibly discerning and sharp eyed sleuth at the Hershey AACA flea market has found the lightly stamped vestiges of a number in front of the 27. On closer examination after carefully scraping a little more paint a 5 was found every so lightly applied. This makes the body #527 probably thereby making the car worthless as teams of micrometer men and measuring squads descended upon it and held clandestine meetings about it. The word WRONG has been applied to the engine . I do not know what to say but that I apologize for wasting everyones' time.
