What is this car?

Recommended Posts

Here's as far as I go; Made in the USA, straight 6 maybe an 8, 1931 or 1932, It was a big car.

1932 would have an "X" frame in the center.

The rear bumper looks like something from the mid-1920s. Does not look correct for that frame, to me.

yes, I spotted the wrap around ends on the bumper, similar to DeSoto early K made in mid-late 28...but it can't be that bumper, as the brackets are wrong or homemade.

As far as the rest, I agree, big car, look at how far the front frame horns are from the center of the radiator crossmember. Also, the running board brackets seem fairly far towards the rear. And the round pipe spreader bar on front frame horns is what? Not like 29-30 small mopars. Is is a big Chrysler? is it an 8?

I will change my thoughts to 1929 Chrysler. They have the tie bar at the frame horns and this engine.....

I believe the '31 and later had a rear dump exhaust. The tie bar on this one was used as a towing spot....

Some of a 1929 Chrysler frame.....a lot of similarities as far as the running board bracket mounting areas.
