Does anybody knows this car ?

It looks like a DB 30 Touring 1917 (or near) but not only…
I've never seen any DB car with these doors shape, visible hinges and body height !
It's registration number is French, attributed in Toulouse region and between 1920 and 1922.
An American military car stayed in France ?

This photo was taken between 1920 and 1924 near Lourdes basilica, as you can see.

Another miracle ?

Definitely a weird one. It has 7 lug wheels which would be '17 or '18. But the doors don't look right in shape or rear doors are suicide on a real DB.

Thanks Doug for looking at my photo !

"weird, weird... did you say weird ?"
(old french motion picture)

Don't you think doors and body are higher than on a real DB too ?
(or windshield lower...)
