What is the American car behind the Riley?


Recommended Posts

The touring to the right looks like a 1927 Nash Advanced Six.  Going out on a narrow limb with saw in hand, the car behind the Riley is a Velie.  I've seen so few photos of the front of a late 1920's Velie but one feature that was unique to their sedans was a rake angled windshield which this sedan has.  Anyone else?

Thanks, I'll have to store the four vertical radiator fins along with the slant windshield as Velie identifiers in memory.  Why this small volume carmaker pioneered a slant windshield sedan before so many others is another mystery of automotive history.
