With the bullet headlights I would say 1928. Can you tell if it has front wheel brakes? It looks just like the 1928 Model 52 Landau that I had in the 1960's.

The bullet style lamps began in 1926.

I'm leaning toward the smaller 50 (1927) and 52 (1928) series'. It's hard to tell if the subject car had front brakes. If not it's definitely the smaller 4 cylinder model. I believe the 1927 Model 50 still had drum style headlights and cowl lights.  I don't see cowl lights on the subject vehicle. Bullet headlamps came to the 4-cylinder Chryslers with the Model 52 in 1928. The parking lights were built into the headlights which eliminated cowl lights in 1928.

 

Aren't we a little mentally touched to spend so much time and get so much pleasure sparring over such trivial matters? Reminds me of the girl friend in "My Cousin Vinny". I love it!
