What type of Kaiser is this?

Wasn't that the last version?

I believe that this car is a 1955 Kaiser Manhattan, which would make it the very last version. The only real difference between a 1954 and 1955 is the hood ornament , which has a small vertical fin on the '55 that's missing on the '54. It looks like that fin is present on this car in the photos provided.

Here's a clear photo of the '55 ornament, mis-identified by the photographer as a '54: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sjb4photos/4686167415/

Very interesting! Thanks for explaining the difference between the 54 and 55. The difference seems pretty subtle. The car definitely doesn't have the 4 smaller sails.
