SND is probably a Sedan. If we had the serial or body number we could tell you more.

That appears to be a 1926 Standard Six. (serial range 1951351-1954400) The 1926 Big Six numbers started at 2073001.

On the engine side of the firewall should be a tag with body number, body style and trim level. This will tell you much about the car. Share it with us and it can be decoded for you.

Welcome, wsa.

Where are you? Wherever that is, I can guarantee you your English is better than my ability with your language. :) Serial number 1953570 identifies it as a Canadian built 1926 model ER Standard 6. As doug says, there should be a tag on the engine side of the firewall on the passenger's (right) side of the car which will have the model - ER - and a letter indicating the body style. A four door sedan is identified by the letter W (mohair upholstery) or S (wool upholstery), a two door sedan by the letter F (wool upholstery only). Under those letters is a number which is the assembly line number for that body. The serial number is on a plate on the left side of the chassis immediately behind the left front wheel. This is a terrible location. Many of them are either badly damaged or missing because of rocks thrown up by the wheel.

Do you have any photographs of the car?

hey :)

thank you all for your help.
im from austria :)
yes i can upload a picture next week, im not at home at the moment. the problem is, that the car is completley disassembeld ( i hope thats the correct word, i mean we have hundrets of of single parts of the car, because we have still started to repair an restore it.the wheels are finished, and also the engine. also the (auto) body is is nearly finished. all the wooden parts are done, we only have to paint it. its hard to find people who can do all that. the car is that old. i have heard that someone in australia may have party for the car. ill contact him soon.
so i promise i will upload a picture as soon as possible. an i hope i will find the serial number.
