I’m going to guess German.

In my opinion it's French, the placement of the licence plate. Not Citroën and definately not Peugeot as a chromed headlight is clearly visible. Perhaps a Renault or some of the smaller marques Still active in the late 30s?

Thanks for the answer. That's what I first thought, a Renault convertible, Viva or Primaquatre. But I can't find a picture of the same rear.

Hotchkiss a possibility

Door with 3 hinges at the B pillar a little unusual.  Likely pre WW2

Getting close.  Looks about the same size (~small).  3 hinges on the B pillar.
