    Here is the actual car that delivered the buckets of beer to the Car Dealership in Canton Ohio when the NFL was born. The dealership was Hupmobile, but not sure if this is one, or GM, looks maybe like pontiac to me, but they were all so similar back then, I don't know the distinguishing marks of brands other than early Fords. So, anyone know for sure what year and make we are looking at definitively?

    1926 Chrysler... you can kind of see the cool hood ornament in the old photo.

    I think the headlights make it look like it is a 1927 Overland.

    It's a Fisher body, and the radiator shell sure looks like a Chrysler.

    I'll second the 1925 Chrysler based on the wheel lugs and two piece step plates. Bob

    The front fender to running board transition on the Overland is too squared off. It looks more like the Chrysler.
