I'm not sure if this is considered cheating or not, but...

Hints indicate it's a Studebaker. Insert top indicates it's from the mid-30's or earlier. So I did an image search for 36, 35, 34, and 33 Studebakers and found it...I think.

It's a 1934 Studebaker Commander Land Cruiser.

Is that cheating?

Well I didn't get it but I know it starts with a P.
I hope I get another opportunity to drop the same bomb type of question, all this searching got me some great ideas.
This thread is cool.

Oh no. Thanks, but Joe G put it down first.
I found some sweet info that explained that the ------- model reappeared in 1955 and continued to, if the source is accurate, 1964.
HINT--->"This model continued well into the 60's."
Until that hint I was thinking..... Well, I'll keep that to myself.

Ok I'll say it again. It is not a 1934 Studebaker Commander Land Cruiser, and if Hemming's said it was they are wrong. Evan if you know what it is spit it out and why. I think you know.

BB I was in no way questioning you, I simply found it funny that Hemmings (the car god's) don't even list the car right. As for waht it is, I have no clue. But by the hints, if it starts with a "P" and continued until '64 it would almost have to be a plymouth since packard was out of business around 57-58? Unless i'm missing a "P" car maker?

I didn't think you were. Your answer is pretty close but it's not correct and there is a big reason why. "P" does fit.
Come on your almost there!

BB

Hemming's isn't always right.

It's not two toned other than the car is blue and the top insert is black. I took this pic last weekend at the new LeMay American Automotive Museun in Tacoma WA. The Interior lighting sucked for photography! When I'm indoors I always use a setting on my camera that shoots two pictures when you trigger the shutter. One with flash and one without. A lot of the pics I took are somewhat disappointing.

There is a easily found internet source that explains what this beautiful automobile is and why. The automobile is owned by a very well known jeweler.
