I’ve been eyeballing this car for a couple years now. I don’t know what make or model and I can’t seem to find it online. Would any of you guys happen to know what it is?

It’s got a similar trim and sleek side but this one is shorter and doesn’t have that 3rd side window.

I’ve been contemplating stopping by to see if they’ll sell it.

My first thought was a late 40's Olds, Pontiac, or Desoto... not sure though. The high hood and low fenders should help narrow it down a bit.

I think it has a hood like a late 40’s ford sedan but I couldn’t find any with a smooth side. They all had a bulged rear fender. I’ll get a better picture of the hood and grill next time I go by.

I've been googling for the last 10 minute and the closest thing I can find is a '48 Mercury sedan but those have suicide doors and that one does not. Seems like a lot of 4 door cars from back then had windows behind the rear doors which should help narrow it down a bit more.

Yeah I’ve been googling it for a while and can’t find it. I’ll get a grill pic in a few minutes

I just right clicked the picture and did a "Google Image search" and scrolled for about 3.5 seconds. That's where my research stopped. That being said, Compare/Contrast is one of my quirks. I was pretty sure its a Hudson. BUT that Packard is pretty close. The grill is different than the Hudson style.
