Can you find the accessory on this car?

Looks like it drove through the first JC Whitney warehouse at full speed without stopping and ran into everything.

What I like besides the brass is the electric bus bar on the ceiling which to tap off for electrical outlets, etc....  You can see a couple of places where wires have been tapped off that main feed.

For some period pictures, here are some pictures from our family album.  They are pictures of Jimmy Murphy and my great uncle Ernie Olson. Uncle Ernie was my Grandma Schramm's brother.  He was a riding mechanic in the day.  They won the Indianapolis 500 and the Race at LeMans back to back.  The first all American team to do that and they were driving a Dusenberg.  They used a Miller engine for the Indy race.

I've been accused of going overboard-

 

On the 1993 Glidden, my '27 Chevy Capitol AA Roadster was recipient of the award for best open early Chevrolet-

... and I was lated jokingly told it was for the 
"LITTELEST CAR WITH THE MOST NOISE-MAKERS",using our:

 KLAXON, 

WOLF WHISTLE,

EXHAUST WHISTLE,

AND EXPLOSION WHISTLE...

The photo of a Cord funeral and ambulance vehicle was posted earlier by Edinmass.  Either there were/are two of the stretched Cords, or perhaps the same vehicle slightly modified.  The first attached Cord is the funeral/ambulance model, the second photo shows a stretched Cord, but it has a roof rack and a radiator-mascot on the hood.

What's the saying? Store up treasures in heaven...?

 

Knowing my luck I'd get there and St Peter would say "pack your $&%# dude, your going down"

Stanley in Canley UK 1922

 

Nice depth in these shots. Always loved the garage photos 

1922.jpg

I guess your word 'Stanley' is a Typo? These are Standard cars. I know someone who owns one of these - the model designation is SLO which is rather unfortunate as it actually goes very well bearing in mind its small engine size and age - early 1920s. I think Standard Triumph - by then part of British Leyland were still building cars at Canley into the 1980s.

Christchurch New Zealand

"Farmers Co-Op Garage" 1917

 

 

1917.jpg

 

This is Farmers' Motor garage where owners from out of town could leave their cars and do their business in town. They also had a substantial workshop.  They were Hupmobile agents in that era. I presume the cars in the foreground are new ones being prepared for sale -

I had a Wheaton Golden mix that loved to ride on the cover of the pickup while we were hauling my daughters horses. He would open the rear sliding window and crawl out there and sleep. Cars would pull up along side us and honk their horns and point to the dog. He didn’t like to come back in but would reluctantly.

Standard motor car for sure.  In the time period of the garage photo, about 1913 or so, the Standard had a unique radiator shroud that was similar to the later Minerva.  The green color Standard is a 1913 Model S.  The '22 Minerva has a similar looking radiator shroud but is physically larger than the Standard's.

I believe so, but is the body custom?

My Lincoln reference show its was the Brunn-designed Model 111 Sport Roadster, built either by Towson and Lang and later Murray,   The top, wind-wings and visor custom additions.

That old Pontiac has gotten a LOT of air. Hope there's a really solid ramp just outside the frame!

Took me a while to catch up on this thread. Here's a picture of our 1914 Chandler when it was purchased from the original owner in 1958. The 2nd owners grandchildren are in the car.

 

I really cherish this photo as a reference to hold the car looked over 60 years ago. A couple of years later it got a full restoration and has spent the rest of its like touring and making people happy.

 

The second photo is from the 1964 Cattle Congress where the rolling chassis was on display. Incidentally the third caretaker of this car is the one who did the restoration.

1913 Chandler "Grandpa" (4th one built) with Col. King Stanley and his wife. I just noticed that this photo is probably from the early 1920's looking at the license plate. Given that the car had traveled over 269,000 miles at this point the top has been replaced at least once. Chandler introduced their "bowtie" rear window in 1923 I think. The Stanley's probably picked up on this when they had their new top made.

Packard snowplow with tire chains

Didn't the late George Jepsen of N.J. have a Packard roadster such as this back in the early 1950s and also a service station ( note the air pump) I think he may have used the Packard like this when the classics weren't as valuable as they are currently. George and his wife Bea were the absolute best , some of the finest people I have met in the old car hobby.

Yes Walt , that is my late friend Georges Packard at his Shell station in Hillsdale, NJ.
