I think your right, it looks like a Chandler to me also. Kind of a bigger car.

Re: What Is It?

You nailed it, my reference match a 1926 Chandler Model 35 Sedan, 124" WB, 55HP 6 Cyl. Sedan models called; 20th Century, Metropolitan and Deluxe.

Also first year for this unique 4 bar radiator design, 1927 was similar but straighter lines tthrough the beltline at Hood, Cowl and Body.

Re: What Is It?

Ya are out there Lance. Used to be two Chandlers around here. One in Jasper wrecking yard, now all cars crushed and gone. And one south of Ottawa. That one was a sedan turned truck. They moved the back behind the front seat and stuck on a wooden deck to tote stuff. Still had the typical Chandler wooden stips on the back of the body.
