    Hi all,

    I wonder if anyone could help identify the car in the following picture. I know there isn't much to go on but any help would be appreciated.

    Model A Ford? (Not sure if the rad isn't too straight though)

    I've changed my mind - I think Austin 7 Chummy is more likely.

    I did a bit of digging.
    I'm fairly sure the car is a 1914 Wolseley 16/20hp Open Tourer.
    Registration EI398.
    First owner Charles Kean O'Hara from Collooney Co Sligo
    That photo of the band was taken in the Blarney Motor Museum in the 1960s where the car was on display.

    Just beat me to it blue.... It's indeed a Wolseley 16/20 Open Tourer. Here's another one

    Thanks, I knew the history of the photo, my father is one of the guys in it, but we are getting it restored and was trying to track down details about the car for colour etc.

    Heres a colour photo of it in Killarney.
    Denis Lucey bought the car from the Blarney Museum in 1970 and had it on display in his museum in Killarney.

    The grandson (or great grandson!) of the original owner is still living at that address, farming away. Also named Kean O'Hara .
