  • Hello,
    I need an automobile identified from a vintage photograph from the 1940s. Can anyone help? Not sure how to attach the image. Can anyone help?

    First off, to post here your image has to reside on a server of some type---so you'd have to scan in to your computer, and then post it say on a Photo Website, or you can create your own Carspace Page here at Edmunds at www.carspace com.

    Once it is residing somewhere, copy the URL of the photo's location, and come back here to post it.

    Once you're in one of our "post a message" boxes, you click on the little "IMG" tab below the box, and a little HTML string code will appear, then paste in the URL you have copied, then click on the image box again. That should work.

    When you paste in the URL, be sure it's clean, that is, that the last symbols in the string you past in say JPG

  • I'm going to be doing a painting of this photo & I'm trying to identify the vehicle. I have searched the web for hours with no luck. I know the picture was taken mid 20's to early 30's.

    Almost looks like a Dodge logo on there---get those people to move, will you--LOL!

    Car looks like about a 1927-ish vehicle.

    It's a tough one, the way the logo dips into the radiator area is the clue...but it's just too bright to see.

    It looks like 1929-30 Chevy to me.

    Could be---not much to go on here. At any rate, we are in the right vintage, and we know it's not an expensive car, and we know it's American.

    Can anyone help to identify this make, seen in a French film set in the 1930s:

    Tough one. Both Opel and Vauxhall used a similar grille shape, but I don't think it is one of those. The body looks very French to me.

    This site has some Euro experts who can probably ID it in a few seconds

    Prewar French cars can be tough. There are plenty of fairly obscure manufacturers. I have a Spotter's Guide to prewar French cars buried somewhere..... :cry:

    Now identified .

    Alain Fontaine, who has a site devoted to the Ford AF (fordaf1930.free.fr/), identified it for me as a Chenard and Walcker.

    I should be able to work out the exact model from the C & W club site (http://chenardwalcker.free.fr/).

    Thanks to everyone who put their mind to it.

    Interesting, that's an obscure make if there ever was one...I am pretty sure they didn't even have a postwar product.

    Hi Everyone!

    I am trying to find out what model and year the following car is: http://www.jarkiewicz.com/new%20images/Jan_Ma5.gif

    It is my grandfather sitting in the car. I would really appreciate any help.

    thank you

    I think that's a Packard, around 1914. Here's a link to a (large) photo of one that looks a lot like yours:
    1914 Packard

    No problem. The sign on the ground in front of it call it a model 2-38 Phaeton (yours might be that, or a touring car). You can find out LOTS of info about Packards at www.packardinfo.com.

    p.s. - you were lucky it's a Packard - they're one of the few distinctive cars of that time (the radiator shape, in particular). Most are very hard to tell apart, or were made in so few numbers they're hard to ID.

    Great, thanks - you've been so helpful! I really appreciate it. I've been trying to figure this out for a few years now.

    thanks again..

    This photo was taken in 1955 in France. Any idea what model car this is?
    I CAN"T get the image web address to work- the photo is in my album.

    Looks like an Opel Olympia/Rekord from around the time of the photo

    First car - 1940 Ford (I'm pretty sure), second car - 1938 Ford.

    I would appreciate it so much if you could identify the make, model and year of the auto in the attached link (you might need to scroll down a bit):

    Thanks! So is it a 1914 or a 1937? Actually, I don't think my grandfather could have had a 1937. He was too young in the photo.

    thanks again,
    Melanie

    This is a picture for different Packard question, not your 1914. It did confuse me for a while...

    The car might be a few years old--that is, I don't think the picture was taken in 1937. The women's dress is more 40s.
