Can anyone identify the car in this photograph?

    Tough one, as I am certain it is a now-defunct brand. Don't quote me on this, but to me it most resembles a ~1927 Peerless.

    I agree with the 1927 or so date, but the radiator shell looks a little different than a Peerless.

    You might also post it here, bet somebody will know:

    Looks somewhat Buick-y to me. The guess on the year seems about right, or close. Artillery wheels would phase out soon after.

    I was thinking that, ran through a bunch of '27 GM (Chevy, Olds, Pontiac, Buick) photos, still didn't find a match for that radiator and ridge running down the hood. Might have missed it, of course...

    This was the era before "styling" kicked in. Cars were styled by engineers, not "styling departments". They often looked very similar, brand-to-brand.

    Styling done by stylists came just a little bit later, through GM.

    Definitely not a GM, I know all those B)

    I'm still going with Peerless, or at the very least, a defunct make.

    I think "styling" came around with the 1929 Buick.

    I think you're right, the angle made it hard to see the extra shape on the radiator shell. The ridge on the hood is a match.

    Pretty darn close--here's a '26 Peerless---the only thing that doesn't seem to match is the top trim on the door.

    But look at the grille and the bottom curve on the windshield.
