1908 American Underslung Roadsters

Another image from the cashe of American Motor Car Company factory photos, shows a 1908 40hp underslung roadster. I'm guessing the photo was taken outside the plant on Meridian Street in Indianapolis and on the back it states that this is the first 40hp underslung roadster. 

Check out where the gas tank is located! I wonder if the car went into production that way - before someone realized how dangerous that could be.

Here's the 50hp underslung roadster - below.

Noted as the first 50hp underslung roadster (1908), the gas tank is in the same position. You can see the difference in the chase length between the two photos. I'm guessing this might have been taken somewhere in Indianapolis' Riverside park.
