I'm fairly sure this is a LaSalle, perhaps 1929 or 1930. Can anyone tell from this picture what year it is? Also, are the headlights stock? They seem large.

I have a 1931 Lasalle, this looks like a Franklin due to the  size of the lights on the fenders and also the grill on this car looks a lot lower than the a grill from a Lasalle, the Lasalle has a much higher grill than the Franklin.

I recently found another picture of the Franklin that shows more of the grille.  It has the same young woman in a bathing suit sitting on the bumper that was standing in the first picture I posted above.

Also here is another picture of the Packard picture I posted above.  This is the rear of the car, again with the same woman on the bumper, who was an older cousin of mine.

I meant to mention that the partial license number in the picture I just posted of the back of the Packard are the same numbers as in the picture of the front.

A Series 135 or 137 given "Ryan" parking lamps and headlamps, sidemount spare tires and via this photo you can see the hubcap which is wire wheel style.  And, it sports accessory sidemount tire mirrors.  Could also be a Coupe verses a Brougham, Club Sedan, or Sedan

Radiator is a bad word in the Franklin group. LOL  We call it a grille shell.  

Actually the proper term is "Hood Front." Franklin never called it a grille shell.
