Can someone identify this car?

Hey Ya'll, Attached is an old pic of my Mama, and I would like to know if anyone knows the model and kind of car that was? She was born in 1911. She passed away several years ago so I have no way of knowing what kind of car she had. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

My guess:

1938 Chevrolet

I'll see if I can find a good pic for comparison

I think I may be wrong. I was going by the chrome strips on the hood, but the back window is a poor match.

Buick?

This was WAY before my time, but if I could point out that there seem to be 3 circles under the 3 lines of chrome. The 3 circles were a kind of Buick trademark weren't they?

not 100% sure im right but i think most buicks had spare tire on the front fenders in the late 30's

Edit after looking a bit maybe its a 1938 Nash Ambassador 6 kinda close still searching but i also agree with Ckucia the dodge seen here looks closer to me ( 3rd pic)




Regards Mike

Some more observations:

It amazes me how many of these cars looked so similar.
I did notice after posting that the tan-colored 35 Plymouth has similar circles. It also has the single top-mounted wiper blade.

The Nash looks like it has bottom-mounted blades.

There is *something* on the hubcap. I blew it up to 400% but the image gets too grainy to tell. Perhaps the original poster could submit another higher resolution picture.

Hey! I know ... send it in to the guys at the CSI TV Show. Ever notice how they can blow up a satellite image of someone committing a murder and get a name brand off of their running shoes by "enhancing" the picture?

Plymouth sounds about right, here is a picture of one that I watched sell a couple of weekends ago. Notice the gas filler location, now if you look close at TheBreeze's picture you can see the gas cap in the same location.

Note the 3 Chrome Circles under horizontal chrome

Hey again, thanks for the reply. I've attached a closeup of the horizontal chrome; note the 3 Chrome Circles underneath. Could this be a Buick???

Here's a Close-up of the Hub Cap

Hey, Here is a close-up of the Hub Cap. I've tried to take the best pic from what I have to work with as the original pic is only 2" x 3". After reading everyone's thoughts, I'm inclined to think it is a 1935 Plymouth. I zoomed in on the Hub Cap and it looks like it 'might' say Plymouth, altho it looks upside down.

Found HubCap Pic . . .very wierd feeling

I typed 30's Plymouth Hubcap on Ebay and found one. After looking at it, I thought it was a good match. The person selling it stated they were not sure of the year, but guessed '34. What was really weird was the Ebay seller was from North Carolina which is where I am from and where my Mama also lived and grew up. Sorta gave me a funny feeling. Well, I'm off to find a '35 coupe so I can paint it yellow and name it 'Goldie' after Mama. Thanks ya'll for all of your help.

Buick did not get holes in the side of the hood until 1949.
