Can you ID the coupe in this old photo?

Guys:

We might have to get the NASA or NSA spy satelite photo specialists to read those hubcaps for us !

Maybe the TSA would check REAL close to see what they are...or what they are covering up...

Keiser, that pic of your's is certainly convincing. That is an unusual body style I have not seen before.

Convincing? It is nearly identical except for the wheels and the chrome light buckets.

Looks like Keiser called it correctly.

The distinguishing features of the original car (for me ) are the "French" style roof visor (a 1926-27 touch), the quarter window shape, the rumble step on the front of the rear fender, and the hubs of the disc wheels: I don't recall seeing a disc wheel hub with that many bolts/rivets ( 12 ! ).

Neat car !

It would be interesting to know if the shiny finish on the lights is chrome or stainless steel. I have not researched the history of chrome plating but most cars did not get it until about 1929.

Probably nickel. I believe Ford was the first to use Stainless-Steel as brightwork, on the 1930 Model A .

Great picture! Definitely a Peerless. I think it is a 1927 Model 6-60. The plating should be nickel, but by 1928 some Peerlesses were coming out with chrome plating. Peerless called their Boat Tail Coupes "Roadster Coupes"...and you could get them in five models with four different engines.
