I'll give this until 9 pm unless someone gets it sooner.
It wasn't made by the ;
Dodge Bros
Ford
Any of the brands that later became GM
Rambler
Packard
Baker Electric nor any other electric
The owner of the company once worked for Henry Ford and R.E.Olds
It was a American company
The owners middle name was Craig and his brothers middle name was Gorham
He was one of two automakers pioneering the use of all-steel bodies.
Last year of production was 1940.
The U.S. Army used his name for cadence.
It's not a die cast model.

Come on, it's right on the tip of your tongue!

Those headlights with "periscopes" above them crack me up! And yes, after the last set of hints - I've finally got it, but I don't have a question available, so I'll just shut up and let someone else play!

I was out by ONE year - BB says its a 1914., The pics I dug up show a
1913, model 32 HUPMOBILE

While "hup" was part of marching cadence, but "one of the first all steel bodies" was the clincher clue. I giggled that and found that BUDD built the first all-steel car bodies and the very first ones were designed in partnership with Hupmobile staff. So - back to Gargoyle and input "images, 1913 Hupmobile and - voila! an Ad for the intro of the "all new" Model 32. (the model name meant 32 Horsepower - a LOT for those days!)

Dave if you've pondered over a question let's have it. If not someone else ask one.
That auto is in a museum int The Neatherlands. You guys might find it interesting so I'll give you the link.
Huppmobile was one of the first and largest exporters of autos from the U.S. And in the very early 1900's!

Dinger if you liked that one , here's one that will blow your mind!
I've been looking at this one for over a month and have just scratched the surface. It's outstanding!

Enjoy
