  1. I wouldn't use this car as an example of a correct restoration. It is an assembly of parts, not an appropriate go-by. There are apparently no correctly restored Overlands in the southern hemisphere. Bill
  2. The car pictured is not an Overland. 1912 was the first year Overland used the oval cloisonne radiator emblem. In 1913, the red and blue colors were reversed to the familiar arrangement that continued into the 1920's. Prior to then, the word "Overland" did not appear on the (brass) radiator shells, but it was usually painted on each side of the hood - diagonally in the lower, front corners of the top panels. Sheet and cast brass "Overland" radiator scripts were commonly used and may have been factory equipment. One is shown in the 1910 sales catalog. Bill
  3. My first pass at which are Buicks and which are Hudsons starts with the radiator emblem: the Buick emblem is rectangular, the Hudson emblem is a white triangle (pointing down). Thus, the small car at the far right in the first photo is a Buick as is the car on the left in the second photo. In the first photo, left to right: 1910 Hudson Model 20 (no front doors), 1913 Hudson Model 54 (hood is too long to be a 4-cylinder Model 37), five (5) 1914 or 1915 Hudson Model Six-40's, a (small) Buick. The 1914 and 1915 Six-40's are hard to tell apart in this photo as the details (full-floating rear axle
  4. I have a rear axle housing, with cast cover, truss rod, brake parts, etc. Large round attachment flange for planetary transmission. No axles, no gears, no transmission. Free if you haul it away. Located in Lakewood (Denver), Colorado. email me if interested: thewacco@comcast.net Bill
  5. It's 1913 Hudson, but not 1914. Is it for sale? Bill
