HELP! DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE THIS 1906 MODEL H IS?

PLEASE HELP! I have been looking for this car for many years to help me know how to restore the rear deck lid and tanks on my very early 1906 Model H. This car and mine are to the best of my knowledge the only early flat dash model Hs in existence. This car I am looking for was restoring in America in the late 1950s my a man named Damge and sold to someone in Europe at one point. It was apparently recently sold by a broker in France but I have not been able to find the name or contact info for the new owner to obtain more detailed photos and info on the layout of the car. ANY LEADS OR INFO ON WHERE THIS CAR IS OR THE CURRENT OWNER WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED, THANKS! Curt Brohard

Based on the original photos of the model H in Kit Fosters book the only thing that looks anywhere near original in this photo are the seats.

I should have mentioned even the seats are not the model H but more like the H5
The H seats were not low on the section between the seats but the same height.

Glad you said that Rolly.

I saw the advert and more pictures of this car a couple of years ago. I decided that there was not much original about it - I discussed it with our sadly missed chum Jeff Theobald and he took the same view. I don't think you will find much to help you Curt, even if you find the car.

Yes I know the car is totally incorrect from the seats forward, wrong (F) hood, wrong gauge layout, etc., etc.
What I need to know is-are the tanks transverse as in the later Hs or longitudinal as in the model G? Also there is a deck lid door on this car- are the tank filling caps inside? I suspect that the tanks on this car are longitudinal and both filler caps are inside the rear door but I'd like to confirm before we finish the tanks and body of our car. Curt

Thanks Brian,
I have been in contact with Patrice Royet and he sent me some pictures but has refused to give me the contact info of the person he supposedly sold the car to. I am hoping someone in the club knows who the current owner is or can give me a lead or at least has examined the car in regards to the rear deck and tank layout.
One interesting point- Alan Blazic's orginal 1905 Model G serial number 1511 has longitudinal tanks and this car is serial number 1531-only 20 cars apart in production! That is why I am interested in the tank and filler layout of this car, I doubt that Damge changed them.
Thanks again, Curt

Allenís 1905 G is most original and likely closer to being correct for the back of the H but its still a different car. The car youíre chasing is a built up car and somebody pipe dream of a Stanley. Nothing on the car is correct, why would you assume the rear tank or details are anything closer.
Attached. Iíd call Allen.

Thanks Rolly
I live near Allen, talk to him often and have been to New Hampshire with him to examine his G in person. As I said I am very aware of this car's shortcomings but we are still interested in seeing how the rear is configured if for nothing else than a point of discussion and comparison. Curt
