      Not enough detail to be 100% sure but likely a '27 Dictator model EU. Possibly a '27 Commander EW.

          Thanks. I thought it may be a '27. "Ran when parked" Well, maybe not. I Don't think the front bumper is original. Being used for yard art now.

            Not a 27. It is 1925. The dashboard appears to be silver and has the pressure guage for power assisted brakes. (There are four small gauges - gas, amps, oil pressure and brake pressure. The lower right one is partially obscured, probably by dirty glass). Temp was still a motometer. The large right hand guage opening would have been for a clock, which was not available on Dictators after 1925. The power assist was dropped for 1927. The style of the dashboard is quite plain, indicating it is earlier than 27. There is no spark lever on the dash, so it has Wagner ignition, which also indicates it is earler than 1927. The large hole in the dashboard was likely for a retractable trouble light which was not available on Dictators (to the best of my knowledge). If that is the case, it is probably a Commander. Also, the radiator shell is 1928. It has the raised section around the core opening.

            Just noticed that the handbrake has been relocated to the left of the driver. ??
