Archived from groups: alt>autos>antique (more info?)

I'm trying to identify the automobile in the attached picture (
http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn60/chengdave2003/Miscellaneous/De...tMartin
). I was able to blow up the tag to read most of it. It says Ft. Sill
is in vertical letters on the left; OKLA (as in Oklahoma) in vertical
letters on the right; at the bottom ("EAS"?), and then U S Army, and the
date is 1927. The fella in the picture is Martin H. DeHart, a first
cousin (twice removed) of mine. I'm assuming the firgure of the jumping
cougar (etc) on the tire cover may help to identify it. Thank you very
much!!!

Dave

It looks like a Whippet roadster, manufactured by Willys Overland,
circa 1927-28. Notice the whippet (dog) on the spare cover.

Here is a touring car, of the same make and vintage:

Thank you very much! I did some more research and I think you're right.
I haven't found a car that matches it exactly, but pretty darned close.

Thank you again!

I acually found a picture of a 1927 Whippet truck that had the exact
same hood ornament/radiator cap. So I'm leaning toward a 1927 verses a
1928. Much harder trying to find pictures of a 1927 though. But I know
you are right, everything points toward it being a Whippet. Funny that
I'd never even heard of one until you had mentioned the make.

Thank you SOOO much for taking the time to pass this to me. I was not
getting anywhere fast trying to identify it....

Sincerely,

Dave Young
