Probably both Overland's, but certainly different cars. the car in the top does not have a cover over the front springs, and possibly below the radiator shroud. The bottom photo does, as well as a cowl which is lower and not as severely curved as the top car.

They are definitely very different cars,  and could be as much as 6 or 8 years different in date of manufacture.   Look at the line from the top of the radiator to the windscreen.  On the earlier car there is a distinct  upward sweep from where the rear edge of the bonnet sits on the scuttle.   The later car has a straight line from the radiator to the windscreen.  The engine that cannot be seen would likely be a mono-block 4 cyl side- valve with a detacheable cylinder head.   The earlier car with the untidy display of passengers is likely powered by a Rutenber, with four separately cast cylinder assemblies with non-detacheable heads.  The gearbox is likely  a transaxle type.
