I try to identify the car. The photo was taken in France but I'm not sure whether it is a car manufactured in France.
Who would have an idea about the brand of this car??

I don't know what the car is, but I like the little horn and the fancy headlight wiring.

Kinda looks like a Huppmobile to me.

Looks like none other than Chris Kringle on the right smoking the pipe.

Must have been the "off season" since he's out of uniform!

Don't know the car, but it looks like some kind of parade long after the car was new, likely in the 40's or 50's?
In that case there's a good chance it's still out there in a collection somewhere :-)

The pic dates from 1957. It was taken during a parade in a city of France. I also think that this car still exists.

Usually, I know the French cars of the 10, 20 and 30, but for this picture, I have not found. That is why I posted this photo on the forum, if it is a car made ​​in the USA.

Thank you all for your answers.

Olivier

Oliver,

It does not remind me of any of the USA cars I remember seeing. Of course there are lots of USA cars I would not recognize -- but there are several that I would.

Note, if you can obtain a higher resolution photo, you maybe able to zoom in on the radiator and read the make of the car. At the lower resolution I cannot make out the name or letters. Although I would start my search looking for a car that started with the letter "T" or "F" and about 7 to 10 letters long.



If you cannot obtain a higher resolution photo, and if none of the many readers here recognize it, I would suggest contacting the Pre-War Site as they have some sort of "Please ID this Car" area that might help you. See: http://www.prewarcar.com/magazine/un-solved-mysteries/

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

I am going to guess either Overland or National from Indiana.
