It's a 1934 Hupmobile Aerodynamic

And No, I don't have a Q to pose for the group, so I'll just throw it open to anyone who wants to jump in with something

How did I get it? Brian actually gave a BIG clue without realizing it when he commented on a 3 piece wrap-around windshield - so I went onto Giggle and Gargled "3 piece windshield" and got a gaggle of pix, two of which were the same pics Boothboy had posted, including a close-up of the sign in front of the maroon & silver one

Yep that's what it is. Beautiful automobile. Made to compete against styling of the Chrysler Airflow. Neither were popular.

Close but still not right.

This beauty is a 1935 Stout Scarrab. One of either nine or ten ( depending on who is the current expert). Powered by a Ford Flatty it is a rear engined automobile. The three speed transaxle was developed by Stout ( the same guy who designed the Ford Tri-Motor). It was the first SUV-Minivan-Van. it's claimed to be the first American auto without running boards. Aerodynamic, it was ahead of it's time. Very small production possibly because it cost a whopping $5000 just after the depression was over.

Joe, 496C Whoever jumps in first with a question go for it! Neither of you were completely right but you weren't completely wrong either.

Are those amber side marker lights? If so it was made after 1968. Also the tires and rims aren't correct. To wide for before 1953 . What ever it is either its not origional or it was made after 1967. Looks fiberglass to me.
