WE bought this old engine and chassis for a garden ornament but the more I look at it the more I want to know what is is. The engine is almost all there and surely it could be made to go?

Can anyone identify it for me. I'm leaning towards a studebaker but the exhaust seems to be the wrong way around?

Well its a right hand steering wheel so its uncommon. 

The engine has a Lycoming look to it from the intake manifold 

Six cylinder 

Six tab wood wheels look heavy.

Frame is of "kick up " design, not ladder.

I'ld say a late '20's larger car

    Several Lycoming  engine’s from mid twenties had distributor mounted on top like this, to my knowledge. Unfortunately I’m not familiar with earlier Lycomings

     The tires look to be around 30” or 32”, perhaps smaller. Mid teens cars generally had larger OD tires.

      A few more pics would help pin down.

Not in my part of the world.😊

For Australia post code 2110 is in Sydney

The date/time stamp on the photo is 12:55 31 Aug 2019 (~ mid day yesterday in my time zone)

As above, we need close up photos

 

Edit

Pontiac's of the late 20's have a centre distributer & exhaust at the back.

Not an exact match:-

Thank you so much for your interest and help, I wasn't expecting that much instant assistance.

more detail It is in Australia and so is right hand drive.

The brakes are contracting bands front and back, the front suspension has some type of radius rod from the chassis to the top of the king pin so it was meant to drive well.

The exhaust Manifold looks like a studebaker except it exits at the back and is on the wrong side.

I have included more pictures.

 

Many thanks for your interest.

Harold
