Year, Make & Model?

Recommended Posts

Can someone identify the approximate year, make & model of this car? My Mom sent it to me, it''s my great grandfather.

Most models from that era have the front fender sloping into the running board vs this one abruptly end at it.

Thanks

Believe it's a 1916 Dort. Could be a 1917 but looks like hood louvers were slanted back instead of straight.

Looks like the one in question has four hood louvers and a hole in the splash apron.

The advertisement above shows four louvers. Possible the apron hole was only on one side of the car?  Believe the photo I included is a 1917.  The Gray Dort is similar, and some were also made in Canada.

The match of the very uncommon front fender to running board transition makes the Dort identification almost a certainty in my mind. Airbrushing of magazine ad and brochure photos make them an unreliable source.
