    Definitely a 1937 US market Ford. A similar era British Ford had similar but noticeably different styling.

    looks like the license plate is labeled 1937 also. Some States in earlier days, changed plates every year rather than the current base year and add yearly stickers practice..

    here's a link.. edit: for some reason link doesn't pick up..copy link including .jpg and paste in menu bar..should work then..

    http://www.worldlicenceplates.com/jpglps/USA_SC_GI3_1930's.jpg

    so if true, that pic was taken in 1937..

    I need help in identifying a car in a photo. It is a 1947-1952 wagon. The hood ornament is an eagle, or it appears, there are two circular headlights, a single, not segmented, windshield. I have a good photo, but can't figure out how to post it. If you are good with this era of cars, send me an email and I will send pic that way. I think it is a 1950 Pontiac, but not sure.

    You can google just about any car and click on 'images' to see if your guess is right. For example, here's a photo of a 1950 Pontiac wagon, is this it?

    Just post the picture on photobucket to a free account and then link to that image in your post here. Someone on the forum will know the vehicle.

  • I know I shouldn't be looking at the automobile. And I know you can't see much of it. But any guesses as to what this car might be?

    It "feels" mid-60s GM A-body to me, but then I can't seem to fully match its visible characteristics to such cars via a Google image search. The vent window seems slightly too swept-back, the door panel doesn't seem to match anything I've seen factory (is it custom?), the mirror is missing (but is a flat, chrome disc on the driver's side), the rims look like aftermarket products, and part of the front quarter badge appears to be missing.

    Thanks in advance for any help or guesses.

    It might be a 1965 Chevrolet Impala as I can make out the letters IMP near her right leg.

    Ah, you have better eyes than I do at this age. I was thinking that was a busted-up emblem, but you're probably right. THANKS!

    I found a lot of pictures of Impala SS models from the era and they have a script-style "SuperSport" in that location. But the plainer-Jane Impala (which the amateur model here certainly isn't) had block lettering "IMPALA" and the emblem with the African antelope just behind the fenderwell.

    So it's probably a GM "B" and not an "A." The only A-body in the photo is the young lady.

    1937-38 Willys, rare then and much less common today.

    My uncle says this is a 32 Pontiac Roadster, but googling that doesn't show a car this small. It looks to be a convertible.

    don't think it's a 32 Pontiac...I don't see landau bars for the top.

    Why do people always stand in the EXACT place I need to look at to identify a car? :P

    Fintail is right, it does look like a Model A but then so did everything in the early 30s

    Your uncle is probably right, popular-price roadsters and coupes back then weren't all that large.

    I'm gonna guess 1932 Ford Model A. I googled some pics, and the Chevy had landau bars, just like the Pontiac. The Plymouth didn't have landau bars, but the back window had a bit more forward rake to it. The Model A rear window was totally upright, though.

    I am pretty sure it is a Model A. They are pretty small in 2-door form, looks just like that car. I don't know how to distinguish the year of an open car from that angle, but it is 1928-31.

  • I have some old photos of my parents and they have this car which I am not familiar with, these were taken in Hong Kong in c1952. It could be a Hillman cos after this car they definitely bought a Hillman. To view the pictures go to this Skydrive site:

    Thanks in advance.

    Without doing any research, it looks like a 'late '40s Holden to me. That would be an Australian General Motors car, but it's just a spontaneous guess.
