  1. Sorry ... the 1930 detroit I own was originally a 1916 !!!
  2. The detroit you have is a 1929/30 year car. The car originally was produced in the teens (I will have to look up the serial numbers which I have a list of existing cars). The Anderson Motor company was in financial trouble for several years ---they would take a say 1916 model in on a trade ( in say 1929 and "retrofit " it to a modern THIRTIES LOOKING VEHICLE ....ie cut the top down 12 inches and replace the fenders with "rounded" fenders ! Hence you now have a modern car!! The motor would be serviced as would the rest of the car including new interior. I own a 1930 Detroit with 3300 miles on it and it was originally a 1930. I also have 1921 and 1922 Detroits with the different fenders and much taller height. They are fun cars !!! Battery compartments are/were typically slatted wood floors. The electrics should be gone through carefully on your car so you don't have a fire.... Keep in mind wood bodies. As one closing thought .... Galen Handy in CA has all the records on the Detroit electric cars......his father was the LAST employee of the company!! Great guy and a wealth of information. He would be able to tell you when the car was produced and where it went in it's early years. My email is mpl1736664@aol.com I am out of town but will be home next week if you want the serial number information. Regards, Mark
