Re: 1906 Ford Six and another car. What are your guesses?

Rob,

Attached are a couple of pictures of Aerocar automobiles, both the water cooled and air cooled versions. The radiator on the water cooled Aerocar looks somewhat similar to a Packard.

Did you notice the long crank on the Thomas that is attached and laying across the right frame horn? How would you like to be the guy that got to crank that engine?

Re: 1906 Ford Six and another car. What are your guesses?

Rob, I agree with Scott on the identification of the car as a Thomas. That was my first thought also. The radiator shape, the faint number "8" on the radiator, the way the radiator sits in between the frame horns and the curved shape of the front axle under the frame horns makes me think it is the s...

Cadillac offered a 4 cylinder engine for the first time in 1905, I believe. The later Model 30 Cadillac engines were a mirror image to the Model B Ford, but had ...

I think it may be a 1929 Studebaker President. The radiator shell looks very much like the picture below, particularly the oval crank hole / cover and the panel in the lower part of the shell.

This looks to be an earlier firewall than 1913 or 1914 due to the top, rounded corners. On the 1913/14 firewalls, the top corners are "squared-off".
