Can someone identify the Year

My Grandfather

This is a picture of my Grandfather Dr.Homer H Burroughs, the back of the photo is inscribed #4 Ford sold in Horry County, Conway, South Carolina. Several accounts appear in the historial magazine of Horry County of how whe would jump ditches with the car on his way to make a house call to patients when he was in a hurry. My Father told me that a favorite trick of his was to simply remove the steering wheel and hand it to a passenger who might the offering him advice on drivig the car. I need help identifying the year. Thanks,

My Uncle is pictured who was a resident of Asheville, North Carolina and very used to driving the mountains in his 1937 Ford V-8 and was driving us that day. The Norh Carolina Highway Patrol stopped us when we were coming down the mountain, he did not give my Uncle a ticket but told him to slow down. My Uncle said he told the Office that Buick could stop easily as well as had plenty of power.

This is a picture of my Grandfather, Dr. H. H. Burroughs in Conway, South Carolina in his Brush automobile. Can anyone identify the year and model of the Brush? My Father described the Brush as a reliable car but lacking in power . My Father said the Model T Ford was a big improvement with much more power.

I sure would like to know more about the Brush, such a year and model? (If you have one for sale, I may be a buyer (803) 622-0234)

Pretty girl is not sitting on a Buick. Too bad my dad born 1918, mechanic, is gone now. He use to be able to identify all the cars from way back.

The Mercury sedan in front of Uncle's Buick is a '46,'47, or '48. They were all pretty much alike untill the big restyle for 1949.

The antenna on the '50 Buick is top center on the windshield divider post.It was rotated by hand from inside,could be turned up or down,rested in a rubber pad on divider post when down. Look close you can see it. I think the heater was just sort of a box hanging under dash with doors you opened and directed the air flow where you wanted it to go. With no radio don't know why it would have had an antenna?

My Father purchased the Buick after an eldery man had owned it a few months, the elderly man evidenlty did not want a radio and when we got the car it did not have a radio. The previous owner brought another new Buick but it was a sedan and not the slant back or torpedo style.

The heater was actually located underneath the front seat with the fan part right under where the passenger sat. Temperature was controlled by a small knob on the underside of the dash on passenger's side.

Your first photo is probably a 1910-1911 Ford Model T Torpedo (roadster).

Thank you. I really don't have any idea of the year. I know it was his second car, the first was a Brush.
