It does look like a 1938 Chrysler or De Soto (and De Sotos were often usesd as taxicabs). Yet the nose and grille are rounded like in Grahams or Willys and it's too big for a Willys. Strange.

1938 DeSoto is more probable for a taxi, I think.

To my very inexperienced eye, it looks very like the '38 De Soto shown here?

The same as 1938 De Soto 7-Passenger Sedan [S-5] as here I guess? /vehicle_84223-De-Soto-S-5-1938.html

An unusual (for me) feature that is the same on these cars is the fact they use three hinges on the front doors. I saw what I thought was an extra hinge in the centre in the thumbnail picture above this is confirmed in The Falcon's Brother car.
