Hi, I'm working on a family history project and am wondering if anyone can i.d. this car? I'm guessing the age is somewhere between 1910 - 1920.

From looking at era images, I think you nailed it - 1915, maybe.

I'd bet on a Studebaker of roughly the same age. Looking at the badge on the grille, it looks to me like the script Studebaker used, that went diagonally from lower left to upper right. Here is a cropped and sharpened image from the original pic. Also included is a pic from the Antique Studebaker Club site of a 1915 Studebaker in Bakersfield, CA. It looks to me like it matches, the curve of the hood, the shape of the headlights and fenders, even to the little spikes at the top corner of the windshield.

Chuckla, thanks for taking the time to do that - really appreciate it. Now that I know what to look for, it appears to be a 1914 Studebaker.

One point on the picture that will help validate is the large pad at the top of the doors, both front and rear. I don't believe Dodge ever did that. I have a 1919 LF Dodge Touring door in my shop that I'm doing some metal work on and the top isn't like the picture.
The style of windshield post fitting into the body rather than being just bolted on and the non-visible door hinges make it a non-Ford product for sure. Not much help but you know it's not a Dodge.

You can also send the pic to Iowahawk (David Burge). People send him such pics frequently and he identifies them, he is a car nut and is quite good.
