They had some interesting ideas didn't they! Don't have a clue but it looks like a rat rod.

Not quite the answer I was looking for but you know I'll bet that this automobile was the model for Grannie's car!

My first thought was something totally bizarre like the Baker Electric but it isn't one of those.

Being old Henry started the assembly line in 1910 and stared making the model "T" in 1908 I will say it's a model "T" as the body looks very much like one. Year not sure only made 12,000 in 1910, I would say a 1912 Ford model "T".

Bob you've got a good eye BUT no it's not a Ford product. Saying that this company loosely used Ford's T as kind of a guide. It was a much more expensive auto though.
Hint: The owner of this company once worked for Henry. Of course they all worked for Henry one time or another.

Cadillac, Henry had something to do with designing it if I remember right. Can't tell you the year. I'm thinking 1911?

Not any of the General Motors autos. 1911 a little early.

BB

Wouldn't that cab and front end make a great pick up?

If anyone cares, Cadillac was owned by Henry Ford and some other people. They dissolved the company in the early 1900's, when Henry and two other guys walked out two others stayed and talked Leland into building a car. The Cadillac was born in 1902 a year before the Buick, but they list Buick as the oldest car company. Cadillac became part of GM in 1909. Boy I just used up a lot of trivia questions.

The fixed roof gives it away a little bit. 1913 Packard, and yes, I believe this was the car for granny and Tweety.

Good try Dinger but no, not a Packard. The year is getting closer though. I did a little Google on Granny's car and it comes up as a Model T.

I knew Henry had something to do with Cadillac. There is an early Caddy on display at Pioneer Village, Minden NE. The info on the car states that it was designed by Henry Ford.


1913 Dodge Brothers? Those high headlights sure look like one.

The car in the picture sure looks like a die-cast model to me.
