George Albright Metz Room at the Waltham Museum

When the new elevator instalation is completed, we hope to occupy part of the garage for our 8 Metz and Orient cars. The Metz Room when completed is sponsored by George Albright of Fla. who donated a 1905 Waltham Orient Deluxe automobile.
This is the only Waltham Deluxe automobile known to exist. When this room is completed and the automobiles installed we plan to hold a very special event because their will then be the worlds only Metz Auto Museum in the city where they began. Our our goal is winter of 2010. This will be an International attraction for Metz owners and historians around the world.

Attempting to identify a car and we need your help!

I attached images of the components I think point to Metz origin. If you feel I am correct in my guess, could you venture an approximate date of the chassis? (I know that the car has been highly modified.) If you feel that it is not a Metz, would you have any idea what it might be? Thanks for any help you can give.

With 136 original miles on it, this Metz still wears its original blue paint and pinstriping. The car has been in the family since new.The only thing touched has been the tires and upholstery to the seat. Additional photos coming.
