#1 of 28 Can Anyone identify this car?
Jan 05, 2010 (3:10 pm)
I recently posted a picture from around sixty years ago on a my blog, and a visitor wondered what the car was that can be partially seen in the photo.
I have no idea, so I thought I'd post the question here.

The car at right with a whitewall continental spare tire appears to be a 1953-54 Packard Caribbean.

We have a winner!! Yup, that's a 1953-54 Packard Caribbean.

if that '53-54 Packard influenced GM in any way? I know GM was considered a styling leader in the 50's for the most part, but that rear look like it could have been an inspiration for Pontiac in later years, and those taillights are definitely late 50's Cadillac-ish. In fact, I was having trouble identifying the car, because to me it looked like a cross between a Pontiac and Cadillac!

I don't think anyone was paying much attention to Packard in 1954. It was already dying. They sold very few cars annually, (calender years sales were only 27,593 cars TOTAL) so as an automaker, it wouldn't have been a tempting role model.
#6 of 28 What 1920s car is this?

Greetings -- I recently came across a picture taken in 1927. It shows my parents and two friends standing beside a car. Only the back part of the car is visible. Can anyone identify it? The image is on my web site:
FYI: Safari or Firefox work better than Internet Explorer with this site.
Thanks very much...

there's hardly anything visually to go on here...all I can say about it is that it is a car made earlier than 1927, perhaps even 10 years earlier, that it is a "phaeton" or "touring" style, and that it is not an expensive car. It has no windows, only side curtains, and wooden artillery wheels, which place it around early 1920s, late teens IMO.

Yeah, virtually impossible to tell, but I can tell it a less expensive car probably from 1920-25. The last couple years of Model T production had a curved cowl like that, and it could have been fitted with those artillery wheels, and the car looks pretty small...so it could be a T. The curved area between the body and running board is also very Model T-ish.
#10 of 28 Help to identify this car

It would be great if anybody would help identify the car in this old family photo at least 80 years old.
