What is Miss Crabtree driving? I always wondered about that but forgot about it until I saw this photo. When I was a kid I thought it was a Buick, but can anyone identify for certain? That dip in the molding looks like maybe a 1931 Chevrolet.

 

1929 Chrysler Model 75 roadster. I should have kept mine.

Up Date on Miss Crabtree. The car is a 1929 Chrysler Model 75 Roadster. It was in the short, "Teachers Pet". John, if you google it you should be able to find more pics of the car from the side view. It has the narrow chrome radiator used on the 29,30 Chryslers.

Does that have the goofy ornament we were talking about.    First time ever I saw it on a car.

It is more of a Hispano Suiza stork - you see it on a lot of the earlier Duesenbergs - my guess a dealer thing or what they gave you when you asked for an ornament prior to the lightening bolt being designed

Bob Hope 1955

Chevrolet sponsored The Bob Hope Show in 1955, and 56.  Bob Hope had a deal with the sponsor  that they would supply him with a car or cars.  He didn't care about the make or model, as long as he was provided a car.
