I've been asked to identify this barn wreck for an estate clearance and really have no idea. I'm hoping someone here can help.

These are the only two photos. Engine is a six-cylinder flathead.

Notables from the exterior photo are side-mounted spare, dual rows of hood louvres, dual cowl vents, bullet headlamps, wrong wheels.

Notables from interior photo are dog-leg handbrake and wrong steering column (wouldn't have been a 3-on-tree).

Anybody?

Hmmm... maybe should be "1928-1930 car?"

Hudson? Essex? Just guessing!

The headlamps are later replacements. Probably sealed-beams. Used to see lots of them on model A Fords, but they were available to fit most cars of the late '20s/early '30s.
The dash looks familiar, but I can't place it. The "thin strip" radiator shell was used on most Chrysler products for three or four years, roughly '28 to '32 (I know, that is five years, but I don't know when it actually started or stopped). The style and pattern of the hood louvers is a clue. An era Chrysler/DeSoto/Dodge/Plymouth aficionado might know. I know somebody else also used a similar thin shell, but don't recall who it was.

It looks like a Nash.
