This attractive circa-1912 seven-passenger touring car crossed our radar screen, and since we have not had an early mystery car recently, it appears to be a perfect candidate. After spending some time viewing images and US manufacturer’s photos of four popular brands of cars of the period with a similar appearance, all of them of them have been eliminated. None of these automakers used a radiator, front cross member, starting crank or a compression release handle of the same exact form as seen in the view below of an identical car which was registered in New York State at about the same time as the mystery car was photographed.
Since we have not been able to identify this automobile yet, it is time for our knowledgeable readers to see if they can unravel this mystery machine. If you can, please include a link or photo with your email or comment to support any identification. The images are via Cars of the 1900s to 1930s.
