That, my dear DSW, is a 1924 Peerless Touring Phaeton.

It could be a Model 66 with a 332 Cu. In. V-8; or a Model Six-70 with a 289 Cu. In. straight six, introduced at the New York Auto Show in January, 1924.

I see it's described as a "coupe" and it looks like the brass plaque under the glass is also inscribed with an incorrect description of the car.  Too bad.

I agree, Terry. Calling that a coupe is like calling a 4-1/2 Litre Bentley a cheap six-banger. It is a very nice illustration from the period. The headlights lead me to believe it is a 1923 or 24 Model 66 Four-Passenger Touring Phaeton....that would set you back $2,990 at the factory. A little odd to see a Canadian Mountie trying to fix the little roadster in the background.

Here is a comparable car for sale about 6 years ago:post-49853-143138128856_thumb.jpg
