The large windshield is very like a Packard of circa 1925-6-7 but the headlights are wrong for that era. The radiator is Dodge-like but those swages on the doors are what is distinctive. Can't yet match it to anything.

That very faint widow's peak on the radiator shell and the triple-tiered bumpers are also possible useful identification markers.
Flat radiator with a tie bar coupled with bowl-shaped headlamps should narrow the search to about the 1928 to 1931 time frame.

To me it looks like a 1927 Chevrolet Capitol Touring [AA].

I think you are right. The pic is a little bourred but the main elements match.

I don't know. Bumpers are wrong.
How about this?

It has the mild widow's peak, the bowl-shaped headlamps and the triple bar bumper.

Well, the more I compare '28 Buicks and '27 Chevy's the more I think it is the latter with incorrect bumpers.
Leaving as is.
