    Hudson or Essex is what came to mind, in that order.

    Those Venetian blinds, winterfront, were controlled by a rod at the dash of the Hudson. This feature was also used on the smaller Essex cars.
    The grille emblem for Hudson is an inverted triangle while the Essex emblem is a hexagon.

    Hudson, early 20's to possibly 26
     
  10. I love that idea. Anyone have pics of how the cable and blinds worked? I can figure out how I would do it, but Im curious how Hudson did it.
