I have a friend that volunteers for a small museum in Benson AZ and he is attempting to ID the makes of the in the photograph. I believe that the car on the left is a 49-51 Ford, but the other one is of unknown origin to me. I'm totaling guessing here but I thought it could be a 52 Plymouth? Your thoughts are appreciated.

Best regards,

Kevin in Tucson

Dave, you may be correct, but the chrome side trim on the "other" one said Lincoln Cosmopoliton to me. Even the tail light .

Bottom of pic says early 1940s. ???

I have no doubt it's an Olds 98. There were less than 4000 of these made (as convertibles), so it was pretty rare even then.

forgot to add "as convertibles" (see edit history)
