Only time I've ever seen three wipers was on an MG (or '83 Peterbilt COE). I think it's a Panther. (link)

Re the Red Sportscar looking thingy:
Amber side markers.
Amber parking/turn signals
Cowl Air intake for heater etc
triple wipers from a late British Sports car
Those bumpers
Those tires & wheels
General all around kit car appearance including fenders that REALLY have a glass look about them

I sorta suspect that there is not a lot of "pre-53" in it!

Turns out it is a Panther Kallista

They certainly do look similar....I could be mistaken, but yours looks like an Oldsmobile....maybe a '37?

Hint #1
The one I have pictured is not an Olds.

I can totally see that too, but....Nope, not a Plymouth. Not a Chrysler, Dodge or DeSoto either.

OK maybe a 1937 Nash. All the cars from those years look the same with the sheet metal off.

No on the Nash and the Studebaker. It's built by a company who is still building cars today.

Maybe this will help...

Oh c'mon guys! The "suspect vehicle" has an OVERHEAD VALVE inline engine

Mopars of the day were all flatties and Frods were not only flatties, but were V8s as well! Shouldn't this cut down on some of the WAGs?
