Need Help on This Old Hack!

Recommended Posts

Photo was taken in Covington, PA circa 1915. My grandmother and much of her family adorn this old delivery hack. Plates read NY 1915 Commercial.

Headlights are removed so it makes it a little tougher to ID. Logo on the radiator is tough to make out. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the quick help. Trying to ID the model as well. Can't find images of similar models.

More research points to a Model 90 Express. This one is a 1917 model.

The curve of the radiator bottom is way different than the vehicle in question and the fenders are crowned unlike the vehicle in question.

The original picture is a little distorted but the radiator is definitely more rounded at the top than is usually seen on a 1913 Overland. The hubs on the '13 car have multiple bolts, the OP and the express have matching numbers of hub bolts. I think the green Model 90 express is heading in the right direction.

I believe this truck is a 1915 model Overland.

The knob on the radiator cap was first used on the 1914 Model 79's.

nzcarnerd is correct that the edge of this truck's radiator shell is more rounded than the earlier (1913-1914) steel shells.

It is one piece while the earlier ones are two pieces.
