unknown car

Im having a hard time trying to figure out what car this is. It is a sport coupe with a rumble seat. The doors have 4 hinges on them that seems to be what is throwing everyone off, the dash has all nickle plated engraved designs Im told it is a high end car cant seem to find any pictures on it any where any help would be great

No pictures of the door hinges that throw everyone off??
How about some close-up of the cowl beading and the door/quarter bead lines?
Another identifier is that peak in the middle of the sunvisor.
Is this thing a soft top like a Model A Sport Coupe?
It ceased being a high end car when you whacked the top so short. The instrument panel reminds me of a late 20s early 30s Packard.

One more thing, most high end cars of this style would have a golf bag door on the passenger side.

That revel on the visor should clue somebody in, definately not a model A, curious to know what it is. It looks like a chop has been started judging from the roof line?

I did a rumble seat out of a 37' Packard and I had no clue as to what the little side doors were for. I had to ask the owner, because I was curious. They must have really loved golf back then.

Sorry for the threadjack.

Look at LaSalle too.

Regarding the golf bag doors and compartment. Golf in those times was not a hobby or sport of the masses. It was a diversion for the rich and affluent. The cars offered to them reflected their lifestyles, large, powerful, gas guzzling, overblown styling, plush interiors, engines covered with porcelain, Damascened surfaces, nickle, chromium, brass, AND coupes and roadsters with golf bag compartments!

The only car I have ben able to find with the four door hinges was a 1928 Whippet. Nothing else matches up though.
