Year and model of this Frazer?


Recommended Posts

Hello all - trying for a definite year and model of this Frazer.  The photo was taken on 3/14/1949 in the garage of Memoly Motors on Staten Island.  Thinking it is a '48 Manhattan, but the hood ornament is throwing me off (most I see have no hood ornament).


Apparently the license plate is a NJ dealer plate from 1949.


Thank you,

It is a 1948 Frazer Manhattan, top of the line for the model year. One piece hood and trunk script is the giveaway.


This one sports many of the available factory authorized accessories, fog lights, spot light, exterior visor and a grille guard. Trim rings were standard as was the two tone paint on the Manhattan.


The hood ornament is probably aftermarket...KF heard from owners that they wanted hood ornaments so the factory started offering one mid way thru the model year.
