What is it 2, late 10s or early 20s

Swedish body on American chassis, so it well could be a Cadillac. The unbroken line of the upper side of the body after the rear doors suggest that it was coachbuilt by Freyschuss.

Rear wheel spokes do not have a bolt thru every other spoke into the brake drum, drum itself is too small, Stanweld wheels rather than Kelsey as used by Cadillac in this era, I am going to suggest this is not a Cadillac chassis, great looking car though and a nice picture of it.

Hi Leif,

Been thinking about this one and am nearly convincing myself that this is a German cca1925/6 Presto Tulip Phaeton, of the 9'30 or 9'40 type. As the body is obviously coach-built, the bonnet may have been curved a little to suit. Many other features fit, especially the wheel hubs and bonnet fastenings etc, and the chain-cover type housing near the rear spring fronts, but some niggling things are a bit of a problem. Very neat car with a neat roof fold-away arrangement. Have looked at Dixi but dont think the radiator header tank matches enough and the lights were high.
