This is from old family photo. I am just curious about what kind of car it was. Thanks
If the wheels/tires are original, I'm thinking 30 or 31 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan.
30-31 Model A sedan.Wheels look to beefy for model a wheels.Maybe 33-34 wheels?
i would have thought 31 chevy. solid bumper, enclosed lugs, pointy headlights
You could be right.That's why the wheels look like they do.Chevies had heavier 6 lug wheels.I'm looking at the pics and the headlights are pointy.I was thinking 33-34 ford wire wheels on an Model A.I'm leaning towards the chevrolet.
I think its a chevy also
Looks like a bicycle with knee action front suspension.
I don't think it's a Chevy
Chevys had large adjustible hood lovers on the side of the hood.
I'd say Ford
If it was an A I think it should have another door hinge on the windshield area of the door frame ?
i see a third hinge, i see a flush cowl, i see a double belt body line below the window.
generally i see a 30/31 tudor
Model A doors don't fit "flush", and the bottom of that door looks like it curves up toward the front. I do NOT know what it is, though. DD
I say 29-30-31 Chevy, there is one near my house for $10,000.
If it's a Chevy, somebody put Model A fenders and aprons on it...
Chevys only had the three larger adjustable louvers in '32. 30 and 31 had louvers like the picture.
1929-30 Chevy..At least the headlights are.....
Rear hub cap looks like Chevy too.
I don't think it's a Henway. It's probably a Dikfer.
I don't think that's a Model A. The aprons are tapered too much from front to back and that top hinge is pretty high up on the door. Also note the door handle location BELOW the body lines. Model A was IN the body line.
I'm also thinking Chevy.
The hinge seems too high on the door top to be a Ford. It's hard to tell by the reveal too... if that guy would get out the way, I could tell by the back corner.
Here's a 30'31 Tudor for reference:
I see no knee-action front suspension. You need to look harder.
Good call on the handle. My eye went straight to the hinge.
It's fer peein'
Thanks guys. It looks to be a chevy based on the feedback and picture.
The guy in the picture just hit 90 years old this past summer. He rattled off all the cars he had. The only one I remember though was his Kaiser. He said it was the worst car he ever had.
Hubcaps look to be chevy and everything else falls into place based on this picture. I think the lower part of the bumper is in a shadow in your picture.
Tapered running boards, wheels and caps look the same, door handles, hinges, etc. This particular one is a 1931 Chevy. 1932 had a different hood. 1929's had solid wheels. So I would say a 30/31 Chevy.
The fenders and aprons were nearly identical on fords and Chevys in 30-31.
Separate names with a comma.
