Help - Can you ID this car? (1900-1910)


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Take a look at the two pictures.  One is my Great-Grandfather driving a car in England before 1918.  My Great-Grandmother, who is in the back seat died in 1918 so the picture is before that date.  I have spent 2 days trying to ID the car and I think it is a Benz Parsifal 8/10 hp built in 1902-1903.  I found the picture of the Benz on the Benz website Benz Parsifal 8/10 hp - Media Database (mercedes-benz-publicarchive.com) 

 

I am not a car expert so I would appreciate any help.   I am trying to fill in information about my Great-Grandfather on MyHeritage.com.

 

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this topic.

Thanks so much for your help.  I was thinking exactly what you said.  I thought too that there were parts missing and the tires were too much in the dirt.  So this was used as a photo prop for tourist on holiday.  This might be a stupid question but what was the company that made the car?
