The 1908 BrownieKar.  1908 must have been part of the good times.  Real motor cars for children, kerosene side lamps, no windshield, no seat belts.  No driver's license.  What could go wrong?

08 Browniekar Clymer Scrapbook Nr6 p84.JPG

I knew an older gentleman many years ago who drove an early Model T to and from school when he was 12-13 when he lived in Northern Alberta.  When he was 13, the provincial government started issuing driver's licences to operate a motor vehicle, and set the minimum age at 16.  He was not the only one who drove a car to and from his middle school, as he mentioned a police officer came around one day, and made the announcement that the students could no longer legally drive a motor vehicle to school unless they were 16 or older and applied for a driver's licence.  I do not know exactly what year, Alberta started issuing driver's licences, but I do know 1912 was the first year the province issued porcelain-on-steel licence plates.

Austin Clark had a Browniekar that was unrestored at his house in Glen Cove, NY. he sold it to me and I eventually sold it to my friend Walter McCarthy of Huntington, NY.  All of this taking place 30+ years or more ago.

Is that a mk 9 jag , actually took a white one as part payment 19k  towards a house in 1985 , unfortunately as business was difficult at the time, kept it in garage for a few months, never drove it and passed it on at cost , pity would love it now.

It is a MK 7 - hot stuff when it was new both in performance and looks

I see you found the Mabeline car.   Either lost or hiding somewhere.

 

Came up on Facebook as a topic and thought it would be fun to find the bulk of its photos and put them in one spot.

Facebook is worthless and you need to avoid going there unless it is to get a status update on where Ed is having dinner.

 

We theorized that the car Gooding sold a few years ago might be the Mabeline car as it was in California around WWII.   But it had the sidemounts when Nethecutt got it in the 50s and talking to Chris Charlton who did the restoration there is little chance the beltline molding got changed also.

What is the belt molding difference - not at a dual screen today ?

Actually,  they look like.  Maybe the difference was the built in trunk.

Unless it was more "bolt on" than welded into that would be a serious difference

Did I miss something.  Was this vehicle identified?  That Briscoe-type cyclops headlight is a bit much.  I increased the photo's brightness in photo shop to try to see better what is written on the top side of the radiator shroud.  The word appears to start with a stylized "H", and the word appears to be long enough to spell "HUPP".  Is this a Hupmobile?

This is just plain beautiful, very pleasing lines.  The side mount fenders are the cat's meow.

 

IMHO.

The trim down the belt molding is sweat soldered on and some had matching sweat soldered trim around the fender edge bead too - a 1933 V-16 is an outstanding automobile ("when good labor was cheap" is an expression that comes to mind - like a comparable Packard Twelve and a few other marques you were buying one of the best of the best cars on the road)
