I looked at Maxwell photos, and that seems like a good guess.

Not in the general discussion forum; happy to talk via PM or email. Really just curious what it went to. It's pretty small and light. The rear end has pretty neat castings, but I was surprised to not find any manufacturer's marks anywhere. The differential halves did have L95A and L96A part numbers.

The Maxwell guesses are right on. Here is a 1910 Maxwell Model E.

Other Models may have used the same pieces.

The springs have been removed for some reason.
When did I do that?

Hi, Yes Maxwell. I am interested in purchasing if it is for sale . It looks like it was made into a trailer with no springs. jw
24-28 TA race car, 26 Canadian touring, 25 Roadster pickup, 14 Roadster, and 11AB Maxwell runabout
Keep it simple and keep a good junk pile if you want to invent something :P
