Mystery roadster

Another facebook mystery - unfortunately a very small photo.

 

There are some distinctive features to the car, the curved windshield frame, the smallish head lamps, the front fenders have no 'patterns' on them, the front bumper maybe either aftermarket or it has had extras added to it.

 

To me that looks like a rumble seat step on the right rear fender - that would limit the possibilities.

 

There is also a coloured panel along the side - typical of roadsters of the circa 1928-29 period.

Thanks I thought it had to be something GM. The 'two coins' badge wasn't obvious.

 

Any thoughts on the 'rumble seat step'?

Looks like there is a glint of one on the car in the second photo I posted.

Of course that dark blue roadster has a Holden body. I do see a pad on the top of the fender. 

 

Here is one I found showing the step - on a cabriolet.

 

So that probably confirms the mystery car being 1928 Pontiac.
