Letter: Identification Offered
The automobile on page 5, November-December, 1971 that Mr. David Jones would like identified appears to be a late 1911 Metz. I have a 1912 Metz and the reversible wheels in the picture are identical to those on mine. As far as I know, only Metz had this type of wheel. The tubular axles, radiator shape, hood, fenders, etc. are identical to those of a 1911 Metz. What appears to be different is the windshield and cowl which are not original. These, along with the doors, must have been added after the car left the factory. I hope this information can be of some help.
