From the size, the style and the tires with the white side, I guess, it's something American, Packard or so.


How lovely, to make a "Nazi-car" just putting a swastica on the side. In the Third Reich there weren't swasticas on the side of cars without anything else. Usually there was the logo of the organization on the door (usually with a swastica inside the logo), but not signs like this.

And it doesn't look, that the swastica is black, as it was common.

The hood emblem seems definitely like that of a Duesy.

Those door handles are certainly an early style.

Sold in Aug 2013 (after rebody) for $1,016.5000 at Mecum auction in Monterey, California. From the catalog.."Bearing engine number J-255 and serial number 2276, this 1930 Duesenberg Model J was originally fashioned with Judkins Company limousine coachwork and delivered new to William Sandow. Duesenberg owner and historian Randy Ema has confirmed that by 1935 the car was used by E.L. Cord’s wife before it was purchased in 1937 by John W. de Noira, whose Pacific Auto Rental in Hollywood had become a major source of rental cars for the booming movie industry. As a result, this Model J is perhaps the most filmed of any Duesenberg, having appeared in at least 14 Hollywood productions, including The Great McGinty (1940), Pocketful of Miracles (1951), Al Capone (1955), Party Girl (1958), Howard Hughes (1977), The Gangster Chronicles (1981) and City Heat (1984). In 1985 it was purchased from Pacific Auto Rental by Fred and Dave Weber, who commissioned the highly respected award-winning coachbuilder and restorer Fran Roxas of Chicago to upgrade the coachwork in the style of a Walker LaGrande Torpedo Phaeton while retaining its complete rolling chassis, drivetrain and numbered firewall." Although this film is not listed in the auction catalog (after all, it's not a famous film), I'd guess it's the same car.
