Reader David Dunlap sent in this image and would like to know the make of the car, what type of an organized run it might have been in and who was the driver. The image was taken in East Liverpool, Ohio, in front of the Carnegie Public Library and appears to be a press photograph taken after an event. David also wrote, “The Lincoln Highway goes through East Liverpool, and I noted an American flag on the back of the car.”
The car is a Dodge Brothers four-cylinder model produced between the years of 1914 and 1927. It was stripped down and equipped with a small iron and wooden bench seat, and a framework to support the dashboard. Hopefully, a Dodge enthusiast can date this chassis.
The City of East Liverpool is located near the Ohio and Pennsylvania border and is thirty miles northeast of the City of Pittsburg. Could this car and driver have been in some sort of a trial or endurance run in the area and can any of our readers find any information about it?
