I worked at a restoration shop when I was a kid where we specialized in the Model 40, I HAD a million of these questions, forgot most of them.

I LOVE those cars!

Ok no one else has responded so I will. It's a 33. The 34 has notches for the prop rod and a 33 doesn't.

If I had not been distracted by the flathead motor being so out of place I would have noticed that.

Booth I am going to give it to you but your aren't entirely correct. There is no hood prop rod, there is a notch for the hood to simply rest on.

But it's your floor non the less. Below is a 34.

Let's see, it's green, military? Then it has that place for someone to stand on it in front of the radiator. Hmmmmm

This is a Hucks Starter. It was developed by RAF Captain Bentfield Hucks in 1917 to assiat in safely propping aircraft engines. It saved fingers. It was used in both WW1 and WW2. Good job!

I am also. I've only seen one of these . It was at the Owls Head Transportation Museum in Maine. Same place that had the Mustang Prototype.They must have been on loan because the're not there now. The Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH. now has one. Both museums are outstanding!
I'm showing one of my dogs in Portland next week and hope to go to the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum just out of Vancouver.
Cars and airplanes both!. What more could a kid want!
