Hmm, I'm thinking a Plymouth... Belvedere? Or maybe a Nash. I assume it's brand new in those pics.

'53 Plymouth Cranbrook.

Savoy trim doesn't match.

Here is the '53 Cranbrook. Pretty damned good match.

I defer to you, the rear fender chrome trim is different.
The 54's Plymouth Plaza/Savoy/Belvedere replaced the Cranbrook name.

I drove a '53 Plymouth convertible for a few months. I sold it because I didn't like the way it handled. Since then I've learned about wheel alignment.

I got a '58 Beetle convertible instead.

I got another one

Here is a bigger challenge. What's this car, photographed sometime in the late 1940s?



Maybe this 1940 Ford?

Nope. You can see how the fender is integrated into the door- the cut line runs right through it.

I'm thinking '47 Chevy.
