I looked at it earlier today, and my first thought was late Whippet...not sure of the year, but a friend has a cut-down buggy with that radiator shape.  I think he said 1930?

 

Keiser, take a look at the size of headlights which seem very large compared to the size of the radiator....and look at the straight headlight bar between the lights; not curved like DeSoto's

 

Also note the size of rad emblem and bumper center emblem.....and it seems to have blind rear quarters without the last window like Mopar?

 

I have not web searched to see if it might be Whippet though.

F&Jim,

I thought a Whippet also, but I thought a Whippet was a smaller car.  Just hard to tell.

Thanks everyone for the help.

1929 Chrysler 65. I think mostly the same car as the Plymouth and DeSoto but with slight differences; eg rubber suspension mounts, bigger headlights, and almost the last use of the seven main bearing six, whereas the DeSoto was the first to use the new four bearing six..
