    Very close!

    As per my MIL, it's a 1952 Plymouth Cranbrook Convertible. Which surprised me... all of the square windshield trim I've seen where on Chryslers.

    That's my future wife in the backseat. :)

    Fully functioning prototype was the only car built, did not get approval from the Communist Party and was ordered to be destroyed.

    I have one... But I don't have the answer.

    Headlights make it look like a Pierce Arrow.

    I found this hanging above a fireplace at Skytop Lodge in the Poconos.

    A Bentley?, I believe... a custom bodied Rolls (at the Peterson museum) has those wheels, fenders (wings) and a similar grille.

    Isn’t that odd?

    If it is a (the?) Silver Arrow, where is the archer?

    I'm not far from the pierce museum, but that would be cheating! Never seen a PA without the archer. But weren't a lot of those cars in 30s the totally custom for the right people?
    ( sorry for the pic, I read the rules after)

    Czechoslovakian Aero 500 with, I believe, a transmission brake similar to early Land Rovers, but without the 4-wheel drive, or differtials of any kind.

    Those were the only two shots where her naked body wasn't in front of the car. I cropped her out of the second one. lol

    You know you're getting old when you're more interested in the car than the girl.

    Good to see the owner selected the ultra rare naked woman option. Very costly. Quite popular with divorce attorneys ;)

    Post a link.

    That’s OK with the filters and mods. And inquiring minds want to know!

    Hmmm... no front brakes.
    Looked it up, 1 cyl 500cc.
    They later built bigger, better cars... like a 2 cyl with 4 wheel brakes.

    Never improved on that upholstery, tho.

    Posted this one in ‘What are you listening to...’ but thought I’d give the Usual Suspects a shot at this one. Make model year.

    It's at the end.

    It looks like a very early 60s American Station Wagon.

    A 1960 Mercury Commuter, perhaps?
