Today we are back with a pair of photos from the Maxwell Jasper Green collection showing a very interesting mystery car. Max and his brothers, having been in the automobile salvage business, may have built this car out of the parts of others as they did with another special that we will share with you soon. The only parts on this car that we thought looked familiar are the Mercer-like seats and the Mercedes-style front axle which was also used on the Simplex, but it turns out not to be the exact shape as that one.
We are asking our readers help us identify the origin of any of the visible parts of this car which may point us to something to investigate further. Note the double-drop frame that was used by more than a few makers in the early ‘teens and the novel positioning of a pair of pressure pumps on the very top of the cowl. The brothers were located in Cleveland, Ohio so there is also the possibility that this car may have been raced in the area. This may help in the identification. You can look back on earlier photos of The Euclid Garage courtesy of Neil Young.
