I think it is a 1910 Mitchell Model S touring car.

 

I had been thinking my way through all of the large brass cars I knew of but hadn't considered Mitchell.

 

Looks about right.

 

This at the time British-owned 1910 Mitchell visited New Zealand in 1996. I recall it had recently been removed from a museum in Ohio(?) and was still running on very old NON-SKID tyres. I heard that its limited braking ability made it a challenge on some of our mountain roads.
