1924 Davis Phaeton.

Recommended Posts

A friend sent me this picture to identify. It's Uncle Harolds car, he said Davis is on the back.

Is this a 1924 or so George W. Davis series 71 Phaeton made in Richmond Indiana?

Looks like the "Davis" logo on the spare tire cover, right at "12 o'clock"...

( Have to click on photo and enlarge to largest view)

Not many cars of that era had four-lug hubs... Ajax Six and Moon are the others that come to mind.

F6F...

I think your ID is spot on, given the '24 Davis' cycle fenders and radiator shape, clearly evident here.

Also, doesn't the sidemount tire cover say, "Davis?"

Uncle Harold's 1924 Davis Model 71 Phaeton looked pretty cool...

Who bought the Davis that was sitting beside Highway 70, behind the fence,

in Kinston, N.C.??

Some one E-Mailed me and I was going to take and send him some pictures.

The car was gone last time I passed through.

Sure hope that what was left found a good home. Some rare and beautiful parts were still left on the heap.

The guy that contacted me had a Davis with an "unusual" history. So I was told.
