Yes, That is a White radiator. White sold primarily a chassis. Bodies were up to the user and several firms made them. This is a very unusual one. The mining must have been pretty good to afford a nice bus like that in 1924.

That's a great looking car. It must be a lot of fun. My Speedster is a February car too. 1920 though. I built it in 1966 originally so it has been a Speedster longer (55yrs.) than it was a touring car (46yrs.). I too tried to make it as period correct as possible. There is a lot of satisfaction in t...

One of my biggest thrills in life was at that age sitting on a leather seat and holding a wood steering wheel. I try to pass on the experience any chance I get. I'm guessing the occasion was to photograph the new 1914 T.
