Hi,

Here's the next one . . . from the '30s obviously . . . and a beautiful car of the era, though not seen too much today. Wish it was mine!

Come on folks, this one's not that hard for you vintage car buffs. If there's no response tomorrow I'll widen the view of the car and someone will get it.

Hint: The cool trim on the top blue edge of the hood was one of the first stylistic touches (along with the maker's new logo) done by this famous car designer/stylist did . . . when he came with the company not long before this car came out!

It's very art nuvo/30's looking so I was thinking something like a Cord but can't find an image of one like that.

I looked close at this when you first posted it and thought the fancy swirl was of a Nash Lafayette or Nash something anyways, late 30's, about 38.

But that grille in the side of the hood threw me off. I have no idea about that aspect of the car.

Here's a really cool clue which will guide you.

The awesome industrial designer that was hired by this dowdy US automaker the year this car was produced designed that trim . . . AND the new logo it leads to on the front grill. His exciting touches made this company's designs immediately exciting for many years to come, and the association with him and HIS company lasted with the automaker for the next 30 years or so!

He's so well known by product designs that still live on today . . . and his career spanned seven decades! Here are some of his noteworthy creations for OTHER companies, and the man will lead you to the answer of this car's exciting identity . . .

The slenderized Coca-Cola bottle,
The streamlined Greyhound bus,
Locomotives like the one he's pictured on here,
The interiors of NASA's Saturn I, Saturn V, and Skylab,
The colors and appointments for Air Force One still used today,
The logos of Exxon, Greyhound, Nabisco, Shell, and the U.S. Postal Service

Wow . . . and I wish I owned THIS coupe!!! I'll bet you do too!

Well I've looked through lots of photos on the web and can't find any with that fancy bonnet work so I'm going for a 1936 Studebaker Dictator/President coupe

The guy on the train is Raymond Loewy, he did all that other stuff you said as well.

Mick, you are amazing again! Indeed yes it is a '36 Studebaker coupe!

In my first clue, the trim on the hood had four of Loewy's new, stylized "S" letters that can be seen. Just a little forward of that is one in the new round "S" logo . . . but I hid that one!

On the front grill is another of the brand-new, round Studebaker logos on the red background! Even with the '36 he made a car with the potential of being dull look really nice . . . with the attention for detail and flair.

My late father (born in 1921 and always a car man) said that the styling of Studebakers was always ahead of the popular time, and that most people got "boring," less stylist designs, but that Studebakers were really neat cars. I agree!

Mick, you are up again! Oh yes . . . and here's the full left side image of this neat car, now made into a ride with some modern upgrades. Yep, I'd like to own it!!!

I was thinking that was odd then realised it says vehicle in the title not car!
