Both are 1937 Ford Deluxe 4 door sedans, the lighter colored one with the handsome optional "artillery" wheels (ht @RepRepublic) #DavesCarIDService
@RepRepublic Due to 6 bolt hub and 4 bolt rim steel wheels, I'm saying 1926 Chevy Superior landau, but visor seems a bit off
@RepRepublic Also that lady looks exasperated after a long day babysitting the Little Rascals
@RepRepublic And dig those craftsman bungalows in the background, might be models ordered from the Sears catalog
@RepRepublic 1936 Ford ambulance, by some aftermarket coachbuilder, based on sedan delivery. Also sporting artillery-style wheels
@RepRepublic They are nicknamed "artillery wheels" because of their resemblance to the steel wheels used on field artillery. Highly prized by hot rodders
@RepRepublic 1930 or 31 Ford Model A Deluxe roadster with the deluxe flying goose radiator cap
@RepRepublic Protip: Can't tell the difference between a 1930 or 31 Model A without seeing the front of grille, steering column mount, or firewall
@RepRepublic No, not Dodge, has embossed frame around hood louvers. I'm thinking 1924 Packard 5-passenger coupe
@RepRepublic 1922 or 23 Ford Model T coupe. Only years of Model T suicide doors
@RepRepublic Closed cars in that era weren't very popular due to the danger of glass. Laminated safety glass wasn't really available until the mid-late '20s
@RepRepublic Sadly not enough visual on the car to ID, but Dapper Dan the pomaded drug store Cowboy was a playa #23Skidoo
@RepRepublic This is a toughie, but I'm saying 1930 International 1-ton truck
@RepRepublic 1949-51 Mercury coupe, lead sled style with chopped roof, '54 Chevy grille bar, and Cadillac hubcaps
@RepRepublic Also has frenched headlights and antenna ("frenching" as a custom car styling trick comes from French cuffs on dress shirts)
@RepRepublic That's it for #DavesCarIDService today, I have places to go and beverages to consume. If you have a vehicle photo in need of identification, hashtag it and I will try to give it my best shot
@RepRepublic *PS please don't send Mustangs or '57 Chevys or '59 Cadillacs, etc. Cripes, any sentient being should know those
