I'm a researcher at the Johns Hopkins University, and I'm trying to determine the date of a historic photo. The photo has a car in it, which I believe is a Ford. I was hoping that someone might be able to identify the model year of the car, which would give me a ballpark for the age of the photo. Here's the car:
I am not a car expert but it does not look like a Ford to me. The front fenders are to rounded. The Model T had sort of a "flat" front on them. (See the picture above). Also the rear hub (on the real axle between the wheels) looks like it is to big for a Model T. I would guess it might be some other brand and could be a late 1920 or early 1930. Reason for this assumption if the way the people are dressed and Ford started to have come other competition for the Model T from other vendors about that time.
I think a 25-27 Chevrolet would be much more likely. Mostly based on the size of the car and the look/shape of the front end and windshield assembly.
Note that I said likely: The lines where the windshield/cowl/door sills are not the same. This could be due to model year or even brand. There were many many more car manufacturers then then there are now. The companies of today and their 'brands' were all separate companies back then.
