:: [  SVVS  NATIONAL  AND   INTERNATIONAL  INFORMATION  ASSISTANCE SERVICE  ] ::

The SVVS Website currently receives approximately 500,000 hits a year and the "HELP PAGE" is internationally the most visited 'page' on the site. We receive numerous e-mails from historians and motoring enthusiasts from all over the world with the request to identify vehicles from old photographs. We can help with identification of Classic cars because most of us are old enough to remember them as new, and owning Vintage or Veteran vehicles, many of us, and/or our associates, are also specialists in own make or type of vehicle  -   These Help Pages are therefore devoted to some of the interesting enquiries received, and information that we have provided.  While page is being built, enquiries are in received order, - when completed,  cars are in year order:

  Please note that if you are submitting an enquiry, we will assume that we have your permission
   that we can publish the photo, background story to it, and your name and country calling from.

IDENTIFICATION/DATING:   SVVS HELP PAGES NOW EXCEED    100 pages  and   2,5000 Enquiries

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1900 Daimler Tonneau
Another photo received from Ken Brown, Hampshire (UK) who says always a pleasure looking through the Help Pages. Perhaps we would enjoy the challenge of identifying a few mystery car photos from his collection. Looks forward to items appearing on the SVVS website. --  Blurry photo but two of our experts feel this could well be a cca 1900 Daimler Tonneau. This car looks to have been wheel-steered from new, not converted as so many tiller steered Daimlers, suggesting the c1900.

1900 Daimler Tonneau

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: Possibly 1901 Renault Special
Another photo received from Ken Brown, Hampshire (UK) who says always a pleasure looking through the Help Pages. Perhaps we would enjoy the challenge of identifying a few mystery car photos from his collection.  --  Blurry photo but two of our experts feel this could well be a home-made update of a cca 1901 Renault single-cylinder 3-seater. Full elliptic springs front and rear and the large side lever. Also the wire wheels with larger diameter rear wheels. Against is the side gear lever.

Possibly 1901 Renault Special

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:Possibly c1911 Benz Sports
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought another batch of pictures and thinks this one may have been taken in Romania. Can we identify the vehicle. Neamt monastery parcel transport 1943. --  Another one which is not at all easy by having parts not visible and others obscured by people blocking most of the identification features. This is not a positive identification but a couple of our experts   think this  could be a  cca 1911 Benz Tourer.

Possibly c1911 Benz Sports

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:  1912 Cadillac Model 30 Roadster
Photo received from Sandy Nairne (UK) saying " Lord Desborough, outside Taplow Court, with daughter Imogen. Researching his life, in the diary of his other daughter, Monica, refers in 1910 to the purchase of 'our first family motor ... a Rothwell, with harsh gears, on which I learnt to drive in 1913."  --  Definitely not a British Rothwell, but our experts feel it is a pretty British bodied Detroit American cca 1912 Cadillac Model 30 Roadster with fixed Dickey Seat (Rumble Seat or Spider Seat).

1912 Cadillac Model 30 Roadster

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1912 Studebaker Flanders 20
Another fascinating photograph from our regular contributor Cicos Florin in Constanta by the Black Sea (Romania) who is interested in old cars of Romania.  Do we know what this is?   -- The shape of the radiator and bonnet suggest an American car, a Flanders,  but the indiscernible script on the rad suggests Studebaker, so is cca 1912 Studebaker Flanders 20. Walter Flanders, ex Ford, founded EMF and then Flanders whose distributors were  Studebaker Bros, who took them over in 1912.

1912 Studebaker Flanders 20

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1913 Aries S5 Camionette
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought three pictures of  7 trucks and 2 automobiles, probably from the Romanian army in the WWI. Can we identify the vehicles and also if the army is Romanian or not ? The first car he thinks is a Delahaye.  --  Our Moscow expert on army uniforms, Andrew Kostin, advised he feels uniforms could be more Austrian than Romania. The second car left is a  French  Paris  made  cca 1913 Aries S5 Camionette.

1913 Aries S5 Camionette

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1914 DelahayeType 32 Torpedo
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought three pictures of  7 trucks and 2 automobiles, probably from the Romanian army in the WWI. Can we identify the vehicles and also if the army is Romanian or not ? Is first car Delahaye? --  We contacted our Moscow expert on army uniforms, Andrew Kostin, who advised he feels uniforms could be more Austrian than Romanian.  The  first  car  is  indeed  a  French  cca 1914 Delahaye Type 32 Torpedo.

1914 DelahayeType 32 Torpedo

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1918 Packard 3 Ton Army Trucks
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought three pictures of  7 trucks and 2 automobiles, probably from the Romanian army in the WWI. Can we identify the vehicles and also if the army is Romanian or not ? The first car he thinks is a Delahaye.  --  Our Moscow expert on army uniforms, Andrew Kostin, advised he feels uniforms could be more Austrian than Romania. The batch of lorries are American, and cca 1918 Packard 3 Ton Amy Trucks.

1918 Packard 3 Ton Army Trucks

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1920 Belsize 15'20 Two Seater
Another photo received from Ken Brown, Hampshire (UK) who says always a pleasure looking through the Help Pages. Perhaps we would enjoy the challenge of identifying a few mystery car photos from his collection. --  Very grainy and indistinct photo making positive identification very difficult. Our Tony Oakes feels this may be a Belsize Bradshaw, but as has dumbirons, is therefore probably a cca 1920 Belsize 15'20 Two Seater, towing a very early car-pulled Eccles Caravan.

1920 Belsize 15'20 Two Seater

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1921 Studebaker Big Six Touring
Photo received from  Simon Prentis (UK) saying " Can you work your identification magic on this vehicle too, please? It belonged to my grandfather when he was living in Singapore. I think the photos date from around 1925. Singapore plate.  --  American car manufactured in South Bend, Indiana by company founded 1852 making wheelbarrows in Placerville for the Gold Rush. From the square shaped headlamps and rad shape, this can be deduced as  cca 1921 Studebaker Big Six Touring.

 1921 Studebaker Big Six Touring

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:Possibly c1925 Excelsior Super X
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought another batch of pictures and thinks this one may not have been taken in Romania. Can we identify? --  Not really! The quality of original photos is too poor to be able to pull out any identification features. Our Robin Vince is puzzled by sidecar on the left suggesting driving on left. Possibly an American made cca 1925 Super X with a 746cc V twin engine,  produced by Excelsior Motor Mfg in Chicago.

Possibly c1925 Excelsior Super X Motorcycle Combination

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1926 Nash Six Touring
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought another batch of pictures and thinks this one may have been taken in Romania. Can we identify the vehicle. --  Very small and very blurry photos with the car in the far distance. Not really enough data to enlarge and pull out identification details but we think the car is American and is from late 1920s. From the pillars, wheels and radiator, it looks very much like c1926 Nash Six Touring. Cow powered !

1926 Nash Six Touring

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1927 Willys Knight Sedan
Another photo received from our regular contributor Raoul Rainer from Stuttgart (Germany) from a batch of photos he purchased recently and has on a big website on line. Lovely photo of perhaps a Packard in front and Chenard & Walcker behind. --   Left car appears at first glance to be a Packard but some features do not add up; no scallops on rad. Further research advises it is a cca 1927 Willys Knight Sedan. The front of the roof overhang, no sun visor,  suggests  it could be  a 66 or perhaps 70A.

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1927 Chenard & Walcker
Another photo received from our regular contributor Raoul Rainer from Stuttgart
(Germany) from a batch of photos he purchased recently and has on a big website on line. Lovely photo of perhaps a Packard in front and Chanard & Walcker behind. --  Car at the back is indeed a French Chenard & Walcker. Why are most Right Hand Drive? Difficult to date; unribbed mudguards, low cross bar and complex headlamp supports, front brakes, tight oval rad; so probbaly c1927 Conduite Interieure, Y3?

1927 Chenard & Walcker

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1928 Wolseley 16'45 Open Tourer
Photo received from  Simon Prentis (UK) saying " I have another vehicle I'd like help identifying, please. The date is about 1930, and the photo was taken in Kent. My grandfather (driving) had probably hired it for the summer as he was on leave from Singapore where he was a rubber broker.  --  What little of the car that can be seen says cca 1928 Wolseley 16'45 Open Tourer. Wolseley was biggest manufacturer in UK but over-expanded,  went bust,  was purchased by William Morris 1927.

1928 Wolseley 16'45 Open Tourer

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1928 Nash Six Sedan
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought another batch of pictures and thinks this one may have been taken in Romania. Can we identify the vehicle. --Another very small and very blurry photo. Not really enough data to enlarge and pull out identification details but we think the car on the left is American, built in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and  looks very much like another  cca 1928 Nash Six Sedan.  Must  have  had a  good local  Agent!cca 1928 Nash Six Sedan.  Must  have  had a  good local  Agent!

1928 Nash Six Sedan

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1930 Nash 450 Six Sedan
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought another batch of pictures and thinks this one may have been taken in Romania. Can we identify the vehicle. --  Car is American and from the turn of the 1930s, so we confirmed with our Mark Dawber that this is a cca 1930 Nash 450 Six Sedan. The shields on the hubcaps confirm Nash. Also the distinctive molding along the lower edge of the windows.  Based on the old Ajax  with the side valve engine.

1930 Nash 450 Six Sedan

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1931 and 1928 Nash Six Sedans
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought another batch of pictures and thinks this one may have been taken in Romania. Can we identify the vehicle. --  Car on the left is American and from the turn of the 1930s being a cca 1931 Nash Six Sedan.  The car on the right is also a Nash but this one is from late 1920s, a cca 1928 Nash Six Sedan, built in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Later  became  Nash-Kelvinator,  then American Motors,  later Chrysler.

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:Possibly c1931 Delage Lorry
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought another batch of pictures and thinks this one may have been taken in Romania. Can we identify the vehicle. -- Titled 'Slanic-Moldova' which is a very attractive spa town in Romania on the slope of the Eastern Carpathians by river Slanic. The lorry is a little more difficult to identify. This is not a positive ID but we feel this could be a cca1931 Delage Lorry. Trucks/fireengines was then their main business.

Possibly c1931 Delage Lorry

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1931 DeSoto SA Seadan
Photo received from Maurice Wilkins from Oban in Scotland (UK) saying " Any chance that you might be able to identify the car in the attached picture please? Many thanks.   --  Registration UB 7095 was issued by Leeds County Borough Council in late 1933, which is just a little bit odd because the car is American and the shape of the radiator suggests it is a cca 1931 DeSoto SA Seadan. Also possibly a cheaper brand of the 'Chrysler'  assembled  in  Kew  in  London,  with  superior trim  and  12V.

1931 DeSoto SA Seadan

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1931 Wolseley Viper Saloon
Photo received from Richard Warren (UK) saying " Please help, this is my great grandfather with his two sons. He died 1933, all the company cars look new. Many thanks.   --  Registration is Wallasey CBC near Liverpool. The illuminated badge on the radiator helps to advise this is a car made in Birmingham by Wolseley Motors Ltd. The radiator louvres being in three groups of seven and the registration pinpoint it to being a cca 1931 Wolseley Viper Saloon made under William Morris stewardship.

1931 Wolseley Viper Saloon

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1934 Chevrolet 1.5 Ton Charabanc
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought another batch of pictures and thinks this one may have been taken in Romania. Can we identify the vehicle. --  Another one which is not at all easy having no body and having most of the front of the vehicle missing. Our Mark Dawber spotted the four louvres;  those are the only louvres - no more further forward;  which suggested cca 1934 Chevrolet 1.5 Ton Truck,  converted to a Charabanc.

1934 Chevrolet 1.5 Ton Charabanc

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1937 Blackburn Baffin Torpedo Bomber
Another amusing photo c/o our regular contributor and expert Mark Dawber  (New Zealand). The
car sharing the forecourt with a biplane could be a Armstrong Siddeley 14? -- Indeed a British cca 1926 Armstrong Siddeley 14'4 Broadway Saloon. Further research also established from our Derek Wright that biplane is likely a radial engined cca 1937 Blackburn Baffin Torpedo Bomber, built in Brough, Yorkshire. 29 were acquired by RNZAF and few were converted to training aircraft.

1926 Armstrong Siddeley 14'4 Saloon

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1938 Opel Blitz Bus
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought another batch of pictures and thinks this one may have been taken in Romania. Can we identify the vehicle. --  Another one which is not at all easy by having people blocking most of the identification features. We are however relatively sure this bus was German made by an American company General Motors. This seems to be c1938 Opel Blitz 70HP Bus,  made in Brandenberg.  Chev-like engine.

1938 Opel Blitz Bus

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1941 Mercedes Benz L3000 Lorry
Another photograph received from George Nica (Romania) who collects car photos
. He bought another batch of pictures and thinks this one may have been taken in Romania. Can we identify the vehicle. Neamt monastery parcel transport 1943. --  Another one which is not at all easy by having people blocking most of the identification features. This lorry is German made as it seems to have a three pointed star emblem on radiator suggesting probably a cca 1941 Mercedes Benz L3000 Lorry
