it is a 77.  an early 77 as it has the pennant louvres.  I beleive it is a convertible coupe.

Probably called a 5 passenger convertible.

Yep I agree 1930 70 or 77 early production because of the hood pennen type. Not sure how to tell the difference from the 70 to 77 by the photo provided someone else might be able. 
It has similar styling to the 75 picture below however some differences ( windscreen angle). This picture is from George H Dammann book 70 years of Chrysler, I have no other info sorry.

Vintageben, interesting picture of the 1929 Series 75 from Dammann book. There are other photos in his great resource of custom bodied Chryslers in the era by European coachbuilders, including a 1932's with sloped windshield. I'm guessing these were one-offs, so pinning down provenance might be a challenge. The 1932 has a body by Albert D'ieteren. Dammann's notes indicate in 1932 Chrysler sold 80 CI chassis to custom coachbuilders throughout the world, and likely each resulted in a car with differences in style. They probably sold chassis as well in 1929 and 1930, as Chrysler had been entering some cars in racing events in Europe.

Ca 1930 Chrysler UK had bodies made by Carlton and Hoyal and likely by others. This CD with Carlton body is similar to the thread-start photo? I have seen this car offered with two different UK registrations, the initial (RAR99) likely was sold on separately. The most recent photos show this car with a Netherlands registration.
