If it's a single part my guess is the vent door or the cylinder mounted to the firewall.

1931-32 Chevrolet five passenger Coupe, what Ford people call a Victoria. NO Sorry, just noticed the cowl vent, must be a big brother Buick or Cadillac .After a ten minutes on Google I've changed my mind again. Firewall mounter oiler and cowl vent look like Packard features.  Bob

 Very good eye John.  It is what is left of a Victoria. Here is what was salvaged from the car. Who ever took the time to take it apart should get an award also.

 

The insects and trying to drag it to the road is a major job in it self.

That running board molding might have been worth bringing back as well.  Looks pretty substantial and probably impossible to find.

Reo Royale was my guess as well. But I understand that I get no credit after The Master has chimed in.

The rear quarter window on the Murray bodied Victoria is fairly distinctive with the belt line.   That would make it a Royale or a Lincoln.   I don't know that it went on any other chassis?

Though they are bent up, the other sheet metal would be worth salvaging as well, if only for patterns when straightened as much as possible.

The Bijur lubricator on the firewall say quality car.

 

Its a Farval lubricator.   In 2008 both companies were still in business and they merged.
