This might be a long shot, but have you considered sending an email to Jay Leno. He's a car aficionado and might be able to shed some light on your search or at least point you in a fruitful direction.

I just showed the picture to my 85 year old uncle--in the car biz since his teens--and he thinks the emblem is early Chevrolet, but he couldn't place the model.

Thanks bullseye for your help.

this has turned out to be tougher than I anticipated.

I have found many cars that look similar to the one pictured, but nothing spot on. I am leaning more towards the 1920's than the 1930's I was first looking at.

Beth, we really must stop meeting like this.

Search different years for the exact model.

Hey Jeeks, good to see you again.

Yep, it looks like an Overland. I have not been able to determine what year. If this car belonged to the husband of my great aunt pictured in the 2nd photograph, and it is a 1919, he would have purchased it when he returned from WW1. And great grandpop was widowed as a result of the tornado that struck New Castle March 11, 1917. If great grandmom was alive, I was certain she would have been in the first photo.

Whew, an Overland, who would have thought? Thanks a bunch. Jeeks to the rescue again. Actually I thought Katie was going to come up with the answer. I'm a happy camper .

I'm sorry I can't help but I love looking at all the old car photos. We have a 70 chevelle that my husband restored but ours is a youngster compared to yours.

yes, RMS, yours is a young'un

Here's another photo, of my grandparents (Floyd returns). At least the photographer had the courtesy to easily identify the car!
