Another Murphy bodied Hudson.  One that I do not believe survived.  Looks better with the blackwalls.

Is it just me, or does the hood line look as if its rising as it moves forward and the radiator shell look too large in scale?

The bookmobile could be on a Meiselbach truck chassis.  It resembles this 1908 Meiselbach truck in ad in the Cycle and Automobile Trade Journal, Philadelphia, January 1, 1908, page 267.

It's not just you. That snout looks way too big.

These are a pair of spectacular Auburn Photos from  Bob Cunningham's photo collection

 

Bob believes these are Auburn's heading to or at an Auto Show (two cars with chrome wire wheels, thee cars with whitewalls, and ... - make sense).

I saw this Duesenberg photo on Facebook last night and the discussion was how conservative the car was - interestingly for its time it is rather jazzy and in no way really conservative.
