damn. this one has potential...grill, front bumper and attachments to fender all in place yet...If I had the scratch would take a few months to restore this beauty~ Jayster one might consider disassembling the grille, the bumper and the headlights to a pressure blaster sand tank...and possibly a wire wheel to bring the beauty back~ but if this were my project would see about skeletonizing by taking stuff off of this and make a 40hp electric motor and curtis speed controller in it~ this would take full isolation in a garage...where one might just have at it~ wonder a 48 dodge, is it? think that it may be so...may even have suicide doors~

all sexy things were melted for wartime to make bombs, bullets and tanks out of...it's a shame...everything suffered the aesthetic designs of the 20's still present in your Boston ranger, Swingline staplers and kitchen-aid mixers~ some designs are just excellent and cannot really be improved upon...yep~ Jayster

thinking now because it seems so rare...a NASH, or Studebaker...cars we don't see anymore...seriously, would you not immediately recognize the grill? the chevies are immediately recognizeable...perhaps not so for the pre-war era~ morality just fell to pieces with their steel drives what saw the destruction of the Admiral...classic 1930's design...remember the deck of all 10cent pinball machines...was a most excellent design...but to make bullets and tanks...boy they needed THAT steel...formidable destructors of beauty~

It's a 41 Chevy. The little wings on the end of the bumpers are super rare.

this is a freakin' weird make, sir....cannot match this front end to anything 36, or 37 american made sedans~...am befuddled the crest on the nose says like Packard or somethin'....you might research this instead of me...one thing is for sure...it ain't a Chevy~

It works much better in color, but both are good.

The rusty/brown leaf color palette here is exquisite, exuding great warmth.  Given enough time even the chrome bits will match the rest of the scene.  I'd sure want to visit this site again and again!

It's not far from where I live, and I may revisit it in various seasons.
