I don't know the make, but that is a mighty interesting signal device, and it looks like someone gave the car a swift kick to the cowl.

It looks like a 1927 Whippet model 96 to me.

I think it is a 1925 Chrysler sedan.

The bucket headlights were only used in the first few years of Chrysler
production ... a carry-over from Maxwell ? They went to a bullet shaped
back pretty soon after.

That style, the basic body lines, slight offset cowl, double belt line, was very common, for about four years. Chrysler, Paige, REO, about a dozen other cars, look very much alike in photos. Whippet, was a smaller car when seen in person or next to any of the others, but was quite stylish for the day and without a size reference, looks very similar. But yes, I am fairly sure that one is a Chrysler.
Drum style headlamps dominated the industry for only about four years. A few cars used them before about 1924, and only a very few after 1927. Packard, tended to be conservative on styling and had large drum headlamps through 1928 model year.
Just a few of my silly observations.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
