Looks like a 36 Buick, possibly a Century. I say this after seeing the
stamped bulge on the side of the hood with the little vent grille. The
verticle bar grille also is similar to one pctured in a book I got.

Bob, mine wasn't a guess. It was a well researched fact! ;-) Did you look at
the picture that I posted? The picture that I posted was a '37 Chev Coupe
and it matches the car in your link perfectly. Check a few of the '37& '38
Buicks on the attached link and you'll see why it's not a Buick. Click on
the pictures to enlarge them and you'll see, as I originally posted, *wink,
wink* that the Buick had horizontal bars in the grill. The Chev has the
vertical bars, as well as the "arrow" design on the side of the hood. What
more proof do you need? Tony's been looking for one and confirms that it's a
'37 Chev. Here's the link to the Buicks:
I haven't seen any posting from you on this topic, so I haven't seen any photo
previously, whether '37 Chevy or anything else. I think that some of you guys
have sharper eyes or can see details that I can't see in my original photo.
However, 1937 Chevy... I can accept that. I haven't seen a photo of one except
for my photo, and it was awfully rusty. Your link here is for Buicks.
Bob, I just reposted my original post which shows up in my browser, however,
it just occurred to me that perhaps your NewsGroup service provider won't
let you access posts with pictures attached. For this reason, I'll once
again repost my original message, but instead of posting the picture of the
'37 Chev, I'll post a link for you to access the picture. Here's another
repost of my original message, as well as a link:
Robert, I just did a Buick search and the 1936-1938's all seemed to have
horizontal bars in the grill, whereas the picture you posted has vertical
bars. I do not think it's a Buick. I searched a number of makes and models
and I'm attaching a picture of a 1937 Chevrolet Coupe. This is the only one
I could find with that arrow shape on the side of the hood. I think this is
Well, if it's any consolation to the guy who thought it was a Buick, the
Buicks and Chevs looked remarkably similar in body style. The main
distinction appeared to be the direction of the grill bars and the arrow
design on the sides of the Chevy hood. Glad to be of help Bob. These brain
teasers are fun to check out.
