I found this sedan delivery. It doesn't look like a ford. Can anyone help me out to identify what it is. Thanks.

Go to google images and type in 1935 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery. See if they look anything alike. Tell us about the motor. Looks to be an inline six with enough stud sticking up to accept an overhead valve head. Is that what I'm seeing or is it a valve-in-block flathead motor? Measure the bores. Should be some tags somewhere. I seem to remember a VIN tag or stamp on the passenger side floorboard on some Chevies, right where your feet would be if you were sitting in the passenger side.

I believe it's a 1934 Chrysler product.

Wow, great guess, Im with "Too Many...." on that one!!

If that's what it is, it's quite rare. From what I've read about them today, there weren't many made and most were turned into gassers in the 60's. Of the pics I've found, the doors seem to narrow it to one year only too....1933. If it isn't totally rotten from sinking into the earth, it would be quite the "field find'....:cool:

'33 panel delivery...from what little can be seen of the left front fender on the field truck, it doesn't support the Willys theory. It appears to have a bracket that may hold a headlight bucket like the Dodge. Still a rare find...:thumbup:

That's why I said a 34 Chrysler product. Here is a 33 Plymouth sedan and that door looks identical to me, only a little shorter on yours. I couldn't find a sedan delivery, don't know why. But look at the body lines as they meet the cowl.

I didn't think about that, it does look like a flathead, I do see valves there don't I? Chrysler fan flat heads all those years didn't they?

Gotta read ALL the posts, Brian...:nono: I have a pic of a '33 sedan delivery right above yours and it looks very close to the field car.
