OH is a Birmingham registration, the records that I've got would normally tell me the year as well but OH is missing. After the war countless manufacturers sprang up only to have a short life. There is no telling what it could be . It could be a model "T" Ford, there is a guy in our club with one, and the shape of the top of the wings is the same as his, but this is supposition.

OH 7171 is I think a Birmingham registration from May 1920 to Jan 1922. The twin rear oval windscreens could possibly indicate a Studebaker car of that period, or perhaps a little earlier, possibly 1919, not that I'm saying this is one because other makes also used these at the time, but it's a start!

According to the Kithead Trust, Birmingham central library have records from 1921 but apparently only for a range of letter O registrations.
