Skiff bodied automobiles were mostly a European thing. The style never really took hold in this country, although more than a few were built here.

Climbing over the side that way may have been unusual, but it was done a fair amount. Mercer Raceabouts of the late 1910s and early 1920s had no doors and fairly high sides. They are probably one of the most common and best known cars to do so, although there were quite a few other sport roadsters and "speedster"/sport touring cars that did so. A longtime good friend has a 1915 Biddle sport touring car with no doors, front or rear! It has step plates down low, and a couple more up on the side of the body! (Great looking car!)
