Default photo on new Snyder catalog

does anyone know why the Fordor on the front of the catalog has the horn on the wrong side of the car?

Looks like an artist rendering of the Business Coupe instead of an actual picture. And, Like Joop said it does get your attention.

Do you have a different picture than me? I see a Town Sedan.

Definitely looks like it was photoshopped or something tho. Shading around the tires looks weird.

Like Joop said, it sure got us talking about it.

Photo may have been printed backwards.

If you look closely you can see that the photo was added to the picture . Look through the front passenger side tire and the rear window. JMO

I wondered that but wouldn't the license plate placard appear backwards?

I didn't notice it either. Tom, if the photo was printed backwards the steering wheel would be on the wrong side. The wheel is right, I mean left, I mean, I don't know what I mean.

I thought it might be a RHD car, and they flipped it to put the wheel on the “correct” side.

Well if the car is a right hand drive and you reversed the picture, the wheel would be on the left. Which it is. It does have Canadian bumper clamps. The Snyder's tag is obviously P'shopped in.

Do RHD cars have the horn on the right side? I never thought about it.One thing I did notice in the picture is that I think it has sealed beam adapter rings behind the headlight lenses.

That picture is photo shopped for sure. That front tire looks like it's off the bricks almost.
