Not Rolls-Royce. It is one of the oddballs - Moon? Elcar? Windsor? Need to check.

Could be but I can't find anything on line to prove it.

Its not the Windsor it had a different radiator surround. 29 Moons are rare..not many pictures of them around. The fenders, headlight bar and headlights look like Moon.

I agree with you re pics of the Moon - I couldn't find much on the net and anything I have in books is not much use.

I have pictures of the Windsor and the grill/rad shell differ in detail but the overall structure is similar..hence I think its a Moon.

The headlight bracket of the Moon/Windsor was curved ,on this car it is straight .Fenders of the Moons/ Windsors were rounder and flatter .Also the bumpers were different. The nearest I can come by here is a 1928 Hupmobile Eight 4.3 litre 100 hp. Grille pattern,straight headlight bracket, boxed fender lines and bumper match, there is a rectangular grille logo and the grille slightly downcurves under that logo.There is a central rib in the sunvisor, all typical of the big Hups.

Thanks pilou, I am going to call it a '28 Hupmobile. All I can find agrees with your analysis.

Presque d'accord à 100%, mais je pense plutôt à une Huppmobile 1929 series C
