Chrysler Newport or variant, around the 1950's.

You're almost there Mick.

The Newport name was used for the 2 door hardtop version of each Chrysler model at the time. This particular one isn't a Newport, but I don't need the body style anyway, as you can't see enough of the car.

So, if you could narrow it down to which model in the range, and the year (give or take one year) you will have it.

I don't know, 1950's Windsor. Can't find anything with those sticky up indicators, are they standard?

Could even be a Royal, so many variants it could be any of them. Unless the difference is those indicators, if it is then I can't find an image with them on.

New Yorker? or perhaps a 1940's Town & Country?

All the images of the New Yorker and Town and Country I have tracked down have small round lights where as the shot on here has oblong ones. Still can't find anything with those indicators, I wonder if the vehicle is over here they were added to comply with our indicator regs?

Yeah, it's a 1950 Windsor.

I hadn't thought about those indicators not being standard as they fit the look of the car so well, but thinking about it now you are probably right and they have been stuck on by the owner, for the UK. I would imagine that the sidelight behind them will have originally been used for the indicator.

It didn't occur to me that the owner would have converted to UK style indicators, as I wouldn't have thought a car of that age would need to have it done (my old Yanks were both legal with the original sidelight / brakelight indicators). Having said that, it's been about 25 years since I last owned an American car, and the regs may have changed. At that time, cars prior to a certain date were exempt from needing UK style indicators.

Anyway, you spotted the model OK, so you are up next my friend. :D

OK, here's the next one. It's a pretty big section of the car as it's probably not one that's familiar to most people and I don't want to drag it out (famous last words, it'll go first guess now). Make and Model please, not too bothered about the year.

Looks like a British style design but it's a left hooker, looks like a really fancy Anglia. American?
