Car Photo of the Day: Still Life with Holley Carbs.

Still Life with Holley Carbs.

The CPotD returns! This car was my favorite machine on the field of the Art Center Car Show a couple of summer’s back. It wore a wonderful patina like an old leather jacket and a pair of faded jeans – relaxed and comfy compared to the over-restored straightjackets that surrounded it. Motivated by an old flathead straight-eight, that ultimate pre-war American machine, I bet it sounds wonderful when driven in anger.

Can you name the car?

  1. Good Morning,
    Your car looks like a 1948 Packard, I have a friend that restores them locally,

  2. Welcome “rcbydbinnorva”! Unfortunately you missed the mark, and CorvairDad, as always nailed it right on.

    Yes, this is a 1932 Chrysler. It competed in Indy racing back in the day and subsequently spent the war years in Argentina, campaigning in races down there. Restored in the 80s it is now a regular in the vintage racing circuit.
