Back around 1976 I was with my family at the Larz Anderson for Jaguar day.   I think you got to tour the museum as part of entry to the show.   I saw the biggest coolest car in the world (to a 12 year old).

 

Larz Anderson

1912 RENAULT PHAETON – Larz Anderson Auto Museum


This Renault sedan was recently on Bring-a-Trailer and once featured same type canework (unfortunately, appears to have been used as a parts car for the town car that recently was also on Bring-a-Trailer).

When was the last time anyone ever saw a mud flap on a pre war car? My 1931 Plymouth sedan had a pair mounted on it when I bought it in 1963, the car had been parked in a garage and not driven since 1935 ( the NY license plate was still on the car at the back too) after it had an unfortunate encounter with a more solid object . Mud flaps were a popular accessory due to the poor conditions of the road even with paved surfaces. Today you see cars with accessory driving lights, spot lamps, tire covers, running board metal mats/plates, trunks but no mud flaps . Hey there is an idea for a new international or country wide region of AACA - The Mudflap region . 🤣

Possibly identifiable given license and also it is LHD.

 

 

 

 

 

It is a 290 Cab A (baby 500K).   Note the flag poles and Red headlight.    What were you quoting that was me?  I couldn't find it and don't remember this picture.

Eric, I totally agree " just seems to get better all the time". I am so proud to see the interest continue, the effort to look through your own collections and share the images, or take the time to look and find more we may not be aware of on the internet someplace. I am truly amazed at the on going sustained interest - proves to me that there are a lot of people out there worldwide that love original images of pre WWII era vehicles.  I never imagined this thread would ever last this long . It is a tonic we all need to keep our spirits up , I have made so many new friends via these posts because of our similar sincere interest.  A few days early , but to all have a HAPPY AND SAFE NEW YEAR . Hope to see all of you in person some day , down the road.

Walt

I know you've seen them, but may not remember - because of the hidden running boards, the 30-31 Franklin Pirate Touring and Phaeton have a mud flap on the front fenders, just forward of where the rear end of the fender curves into the body.

1940-1941 Graham Hollywood’s had them from the factory. Zeke

Need to look it up in the souvenir program I have , but the Duesenberg most likely is on the exhibit at the London Motor Show for 1929.

Signs indicate the English way of stating where they are from so far as location and that it is a "motor" show not an automobile show.

Bob, thanks for all your contributions for the 9 months this has been a part of the forums. You and many others have contributed way more images then I have and that is exactly what I had hoped would happen when I started this.
