:: [  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 have some 3,000 Enquiries Received & Identified

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1926 Rudge-Whitworth 500cc
Mahmoud Ezzeldin (Egypt) from 'Vintage Wheels Egypt' sends us a couple of photos from colleague Burges Simone of great grandfather based in Egypt between 1921 and 1930. Would love to know the make and model of the motorbike, Rudge & Douglas were two names to come to mind.  -- Our vintage motorcycle sleuth Chas Moody advises indeed a cca 1926 Rudge-Whitworth 500cc OHV. Photos seem to show that a sidecar is attached. Has rim brakes but apparently not very effective.

1926 Rudge-Whitworth 500cc

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1907 Humber 10'12 Tourer
Our regular contributor Mark Dawber (New Zealand) was sent this photo by a fiend for identification. He thought the car is a Humber around 1910, but not sure of model.  -- Indeed a Humber who made plethora of models during this period, some in their Coventry factory and some in Beeston, with same models having differing features. This car seems to have tubular dumb-irons and individual vertical cooling tubes suggesting one of the earlier cars, cca 1907 Humber 10'12 Tourer.

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: c1914 Mercedes Town Car
One of number of interesting photos sent to us by Andrew Kostin from Moscow (Russia) who is collector of old photos. The picture shows Generaladjutant to the Kaiser Wilhelm II von Lyncker February 1915. -- c1913+ 'spitzkuhler' Daimler Mercedes with open-drive Town Car body. Our veterans expert Ariejan Bos from Holland advises that in period used 'regular' and Knight engines. As is a large car,  regular engine could be the 28/95 PS; in case of a Knight engine perhaps 16/45 PS.

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1947 Chevrolet Fleetmaster Sedan
One of number of interesting photos sent to us by Andrew Kostin from Moscow (Russia) who is collector of old photos. Photo from a friend. Picture shows American (?) car with Soviet military personnel somewhere in just liberated European territory in 1945/1946  --  Mark Dawber advises General Motors of Detroit, being a cca 1947 Chevrolet Fleetmaster. The horisontal badge just visible; 1946 badge is more vertical and the 1948 cars have a extra vertical strip added to the grille.

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1925 Oakland 6-54 Sedan
One of number of interesting photos sent to us by Andrew Kostin from Moscow (Russia) who is collector of old photos. Unfortunately, no date or venue is indicated on the backside.  -- Car could have been 'European made' but looks of American design. Our Mark Dawber had a couple of ideas. Originally thought of a Nash but then noticed the sun visor, which is very GM style. Investigation advised this car is cca 1925 Oakland 6-54 Sedan made in Pontiac, Michigan.  GM 1909, was Pontiac 1926-2010.

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1934 Horch 8 Typ 750 B
One of number of interesting photos sent to us by Andrew Kostin from Moscow (Russia) who is collector of old photos. This one if from a friend of his and shows sergeant and officer of Motor Troops of the Red Army.  -- Confirmed by our friend Raoul Rainer from Stuttgart that car in the photo seems to be a cca 1933'4 Horch 8 - 4.5 Liter Typ 750 B. Photo does not show whole car so possibly a Pullman-Cabriolet with body by Karosserie Karl Baur. Horch made numerous models during that period.

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1924 Dodge Touring
Lovely period photo sent to us by Ronald Van Til (USA but in New Zealand) of their Great Grandfather standing by his American car taken in Grand Rapids, Michigan; luggage and tent ready for a trip to Niagara Falls. Would appreciate  help to identify car and year made. --  Awkward angle so ID very difficult. Even though most of the important parts are obscured, our Mark Dawber suggests it is a cca 1924 Dodge Touring.  First year for hood louvres,  and last year for the 24" wheels. 

1924 Dodge Brothers Touring

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1937 Hudson Touring Sedan
One of number of interesting photos sent to us by Andrew Kostin from Moscow (Russia) who is collector of old photos. Can we identify photo of this captured vehicle? The photo was taken somewhere in the USSR after the V-Day. --  Much of car is hidden so ID is difficult. Our Mark Dawber suggests a cca 1937 Hudson or lower price Terraplane. Hub cap and window vents would have been helpful,  but features are obscured. Side mount tyres perhaps Hudson but some Terraplanes also had them.

1937 Hudson Touring Sedan

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: Perhaps 1913 Haynes Touring
On HP18 we identified this car as a  cca 1913 Cartercar Tourer after consultation with our friends at the AACA in the USA.  -- We have now been contacted by Varun Coutinho that he thinks this could be another American car of the period, the cca 1913 Haynes, 5-Passenger Touring. He has suggested it could be either a Model 24 4, 23 6, or 26 6. Subsequent study of these models suggests he could well be right but not being experts on American cars we cannot provide a definitive ID.

Perhaps 1913 Haynes Touring

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1914 Rover 12 Tourer
Our regular contributor Mark Dawber (New Zealand) was puzzled by this unidentified photo captioned 'Photo taken about 1940 in the Wairarapa area.' Looks like a Rover but which. -- Indeed a British Rover made in Solihull in Warwickshire. It is a cca 1914 Rover 12 Tourer which can take its dating from the shape of the rad, the bulkhead filler cap and by the flat mudguards. Rover 12s came in four variants, this designed by Owen Clegg, 1912-'23; made pre-war having a 2297cc four.

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1902 Toledo Model A Steamer
On HP118 we identified the car as a cca 1901 Toledo Model B Steamer.   -- Have now been advised by Nick Howell (UK), who has a Toledo, that this is a cca 1902 Toledo Model A Steamer as  it has curved back to the rear corner of seat, the top half of which carries forward around the corner. Nick also advises that American Bicycle Company was started by Pope 1900, bought rights to the steam car  from Mr Billings; formed International Motor Car Co 1901, changed to Pope Manufacturing 1903.

1901 Toledo Model B Steamer

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1941 Horch 853 Fire-Engine
Our Publicity Officer Tony Russell (UK) found this photo on his searches through the internet and wondered if we knew what it was? -- This is a well known one-off vehicle located in the Czech Republic. It started life as a 1941 Horch 853 Sports Cabriolet hastily abandoned by a German Officer on evacuation at end of WW2. Body discarded but new Fire Engine body built by CZ coachmaker T. Lepil designed for six people and hoses, as a fast intervention vehicle used Brno-Komin Firebrigade 1949.
