:: [  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 photo  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 3,500 Enquiries Received & Identified

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: c1908 Russell Delivery Van
Photo sent in by Mark Dawber (New Zealand) of car in Christchurch. -- Primary ident feature is a just visible housing on side of bonnet. Fascinating reply from Ariejan Bos that this may be a high end cca 1908 Russell, built in Toronto Canada by Russell Motor Car Co with specific sales office in New Zealand and Oz. The Delivery Van body may be local. In 1907 they had a 40HP model an 1908 a 50HP. Car making sold to Willys Overland 1916 but RMCC lasted as machine parts to mid 1950s.

c1908 Russell Delivery Van

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1900 Daimler 6 HP Char-a-Banc
Earlier photo posted on the Rootschat forum by Jacqueline Cox (UK) who is trying to determine the make of the vehicle.  -- Lovely period photo of a relatively unusual coachwork body on an expensive chassis. This is a cca 1900 Daimler 6HP 2 cylinder Char-a-banc which was mentioned in the Daimler catalogue for 1900. The car has a steering wheel so cannot be earlier than 1899. Daimler Coventry had purchased Daimler name/patents from Gottlieb Daimler of Cannstatt, Geremany.

1900 Daimler 6 HP Char-a-Banc

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1906 Dolson Touring
Fascinating photo from Facebook sent to us by our regular contributor Mark Dawber (New Zealand) who  is trying to identify the vehicle.  --  Radiator very Wolseley type but forward steering bar. Licenece plate indicated New York cca 1911. We had started researching it when Varun Coutinho, an occasional contributor, advised it was an extremely rare 1907 Dolson. Our experts agree but smaller size rad suggests a cca 1906 Dolson 2 cylinder Touring. Only 700 cars made Charlotte Michigan.

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1907 Rexette 5HP Forecar
Interesting photo sent to the Rootschat forum by Phodgetts (UK) who has come across a family album and is trying to determine more about it.  -- Some discussion if reg is AD or AO. AD is is Gloucester CC cca 1907, and AO is Cumberland CC cca 1910. The vehicle is a Rexette Tricar manufactured by the Rex Motor Manufacturing Co of Coventry 1903 to 1906. This three wheeler is a single seater forecar which suggests that the Gloucester AD registration is more likely than the 1910 Cumberland.

1907 Rexette 5HP Forecar

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1907 Darracq 10'12 Double Phaeton
Earlier photo posted on the Rootschat forum by Toby Webb (UK) who is trying to determine the registration and the make of the vehicle.  -- AX is Monmoutshire, SE Wales. Close study suggests registration is AX 244, not 24, so not a very early one.  Car make suggested as Armstrong Whitworth, also not so. The car has a radiator that is reminiscent of the British Wolseley but is in fact a cca 1907 Darracq 10'12 Double Phaeton. Originally French from Suresnes. Became British manufacturer in 1905.

1907 Darracq 10'12 Double Phaeton

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:c1907 Argyll 10'12 Tourer
Puzzling photo dated 1908 sent to the Rootschat forum by Vimto (UK) who is trying to determine the owner of vehicle. Help on year and car would be appreciated.  -- Car is relatively easy as it is a cca 1907/8 Argyll Tourer, probably the 10’12 made in Scotland. Registration is more complex as HA1 officially is Liverpool CBC June 1925. Our Vintage Registrations expert Nicholas Young believes it was  GIM or Trade Plate used as 'standard number' which should have had the hyphen K-A -1.

c1907 Argyll 10'12 Tourer

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: c1917 National Highway Six Phaeton
Another from a batch of interesting photos received from Mike Sanders (USA) from Montana which they have not been able to identify. "This is fun. We appreciate all you do." -- Thanks for the compliment.  Not a very clear photo so identification difficult. Car in photo does not have front brakes. Close-up study of radiator front suggests upward pointed curves of a relatively unusual car from Indianapolis being a cca 1917 National Highway Six Sport Phaeton. Company operated 1900 to 1924.

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1917 Ford Model T Center Door Sedan
Another from a batch of interesting photos received from Mike Sanders (USA) from Montana which they have not been able to identify. "This is just too much fun. We appreciate all you do." -- Thanks for the compliment.  Much of the car is obscured but enough to see no front springs, so that it is a Ford Model T. It has a rounded bonnet so must be post 1916 and has the interesting two door 'Center Door' body introduced at that time; so cca 1917+ Ford Model T Center Door Sedan.

1917+ Ford Model T Center Door Sedan

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1918 Dodge Brothers Model 30 Touring
Another from a batch of interesting photos received from Mike Sanders (USA) from Montana which they have not been able to identify. "This is just too much fun. We appreciate all you do." -- Thanks for the compliment.  Rather poor quality photo which we have not been able to improve much. Our Mark Dawber in NZ had spotted pointers like lights forward of rad, no bonnet louvres, casing rear of running board, etc, which suggest  this was  a   cca 1918 Dodge Brothers Model 30 Touring.

1918 Dodge Brothers Model 30 Touring

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1919 Oldsmobile 37 A Touring
Another interesting photo received from Mike Sanders (USA) saying he has another from Montana. C 1916? -- Close study of the photo shows that the registration is about readable and that it says  'MONT 19' which means the plate was issued in Montana in 1919, not 1916. Car has a horseshoe radiator with a flat face made by a company started by Ransom E Olds 1897 making the 'Curved Dash'. Became General Motors. He left 1904 to form REO.  This is a cca 1919 Oldsmobile 37 A Touring.

 1919 Oldsmobile 37 A Touring

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1925 Dodge Standard Touring
Another interesting photo received from Giorgio Tardi (Italy) who took it in Madeira during some sort of a Classic Car Run. Can we tell him what it was? -- There seems an active old car movemnt in Madeira despite it being a small off-shore island. Trick of light suggests sloping bonnet but not. This car is unusual being American having split rim disc wheels and suicide rear doors. Mark Dawber advised it has a painted radiator shell not nickel, probably a cca 1925 Dodge Standard Touring. 

1925 Dodge Standard Touring

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1925 Willys Knight Model 65 Sedan
Another from a batch of interesting photos received from Mike Sanders (USA) from Montana which they have not been able to identify. "This is just too much fun. We appreciate all you do." -- Thanks for the compliment.  Very awkward angle but the bonnet top seems to be a bit wavy and side at a bit of an angle:  Packard, Buick or maybe Willys-Knight? Our Mark Dawber in NZ had spotted a few pointers which suggest this is a cca 1925 Willys Knight Model 65 Sedan. Probably right!

1925 Willys Knight Model 65 Sedan

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1925 Buick Six
Another from a batch of interesting photos received from Mike Sanders (USA) from Montana which they have not been able to identify. "This is just too much fun. We appreciate all you do." -- Thanks for the compliment.  Not much of the car to see and and also dating part of numberplate is obscured. It does however have a distinctive radiator headlamp & badge which date it post 1923 into the 1924/5 period. Not possible to be sure on the model or body style, but is a cca 1925 Buick. 

1925 Buick Six

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1928 Chevrolet Type AB Cabriolet
Another from a batch of interesting photos received from Mike Sanders (USA) from Montana which they have not been able to identify. "This is just too much fun. We appreciate all you do." -- Thanks for the compliment.  This one is relatively easy if you know that this type of radiator and bade was in use for only a very short time. This car was made by a company co-founded by a Swiss Racing Driver and a William Durrant who had been ousted from General Motors 1910. This is a rather nice cca 1928 Chevrolet Type AB Cabriolet, with convertible roof.

1928 Chevrolet Type AB Cabriolet

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1930 Berliet VIL Saloon
Another interesting photo received from Giorgio Tardi (Italy) who took it in Madeira during some sort of a Classic Car Run. He thought it was French wandered as to make and year? -- Lovely photo which shows the car off well but did not initially help at all. It was not any of the usual French suspects and our French Member did not recognise it. Very much searching later it turns out it is an unusual cca 1930 Berliet VIL Saloon. Berliet started in 1899, cars stopped 1939. Busses became Renault '74.

1930 Berliet VIL Saloon

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1934 Chevrolet DA Roadster
Another from a batch of interesting photos received from Mike Sanders (USA) from Montana which they have not been able to identify. "This is just too much fun. We appreciate all you do." -- Thanks for the compliment.  We think this may be a posed 'saucy' photograph. The lady under car is very scantily dressed in a backless gown and unconcerned that she is showing her knickers. The car is quite glamorous being cca 1934 Chevrolet DA Roadster with a dickey/rumble.   (Now see below!)

1934 Chevrolet DA Roadster

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1934 Chevrolet DA Roadster
Subsequently advised was discovered photo was NOT posed and that the knickers were not aware of being photographed. Photo shows a relative who had gone swimming to Applegate and on the return trip found that her exhaust/muffler fell off. The lady in question was under the car trying to fix it, with female friend and daughter in the car and in the rumble/dickey. It seems it was the little girl's sister who was taking the photo without anybody knowing. ...But was 'the only photo of car'!

1934 Chevrolet DA Roadster

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1933 Citroen Rosalie Saloon
Cinema screen grab taken from a French film " Las Douleur"  (Memoir of War) made in 2017 where cars are being investigated by IMCDB. World War Two Liberation of France, but under German occupation, and how a young wife copes with it. --  Recognisably French from the location of the numberplate on top of the trunk boot but always difficult to name make from the back. The handle on top of the trunk to lift the lid up with and encased spare suggest this is cca 1933 Citroen Rosalie Saloon.

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1934 Renault Monaquatre Boulangere
Cinema screen grab taken from a French film " Las Douleur"  (Memoir of War) made in 2017 where cars are being investigated by IMCDB. World War Two Liberation of France, but under German occupation, and how a young wife copes with it. --  It looks a slightly modified vehicle from original as it seems to be a minibus and to have windows (?). Originally it would have had open sides and back with canvass flaps tied down. It would have been cca 1934 Renault Monaquatre Boulangere bakers van. 

1934 Renault Monaquatre Boulangere

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1936 Peugeot_301T Camionnette
Cinema screen grab taken from a French film " Las Douleur"  (Memoir of War) made in 2017 where cars are being investigated by IMCDB. World War Two Liberation of France, but under German occupation, and how a young wife copes with it. --  From the higher placed headlights, this is a French vehicle produced between 1932 and 1936 as part of the Peugeot 301 series of cars, vans and pickups. This is a cca 1936 Peugeot_301T Camionnette, 35 bhp four-cylinder water-cooled engine unit of 1465 cc.

1936 Peugeot_301T Camionnette

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: c1936 Plymouth P2 Ddeluxe Sedan
Another from a batch of interesting photos received from Mike Sanders (USA) from Montana which they have not been able to identify. "This is fun. We appreciate all you do." -- Thanks for the compliment.  Photo featuring women, seemingly very pleased with themselves! The grille had an after-market protector and headlamp stalks have embellishers. In the UK this would have been a Chrysler Wimbledon, but as this is presumably Montana, it is a sideways c1936 Plymouth P2 Deluxe Sedan.

c1936 Plymouth P2 Ddeluxe Sedan

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1937 DKW F7 Two-door Saloon
Cinema screen grab taken from a German Documentary film " ZDF-zeit", amateur footage taken in summer of 1939 about private life under Nazi regime. --  A two-cylinder two-stroke enngined front wheel drive car made by the Dampf-Kraft-Wagen company in Chemnitz, later East Germany, which in 1932 merged with Audi, Horch and Wanderer to form Auto Union. This has a single block of small louvres so a cca 1937 DKW F7 Two-door Saloon, but photo unclear if Reich.. or Meisterclasse.

1937 DKW F7 Two-door Saloon

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING:1938 NSU_Fiat 508C Cabriolet
Cinema screen grab taken from a German Documentary film " ZDF-zeit", amateur footage taken in summer of 1939 about private life under Nazi regime. --  At first glance it would seem to be an Italian Fiat 508 C Balilla, or perhaps the the French valiant the Simca 8, but as this was filmed in 1939 Germany it was probably the NSU-Fiat built in Heilbrom, purchased by NSU in 1929. So this is probably a cca 1938 NSU_Fiat 508C Cabriolet. Some 6,000 508C cars were built 1934-1941.

cca 1938 NSU_Fiat 508C Cabriolet

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1938 Ford Half Ton Pickup
Another from a batch of interesting photos received from Mike Sanders (USA) from Montana which they have not been able to identify. "This is just too much fun. We appreciate all you do." -- Thanks for the compliment.  Lovely photo of a neat little pickup. Looks like a custom rear. These vehicles are relatively rare and were made for only two years which helps with relatively accurate dating, They did not resemble the car line of the same period. This is a  cca 1938 Ford Half Ton Pickup.

 1938 Ford Half Ton Pickup

IDENTIFICATION AND DATING: 1941 Buick Super Convertible Coupe
Another from a batch of interesting photos received from Mike Sanders (USA) from Montana which they have not been able to identify. "This is just too much fun. We appreciate all you do." -- Thanks for the compliment.  Front of the car is missing but there is a distinctive chrome embellishment on the rear mudguard  rather than on the spat covering the wheel arch, to confirm this is a cca 1941 Buick 56C Super Convertible Coupe. David Buick founded the Autocar company in 1897,
