The body is 1930 (series 50?)..but the single bar front bumper..would suggest 1932.! (Three bar bumper in 1929..& a two bar bumper in 1930-31)

Elle est de 1929! La calandre est différente en 1930. Par contre, il est vrai que les pare-chocs ne paraissent pas d'origine.

This car is a 1931 Buick, I have one.
The double bumper bar was used in 1930 but in 1931 they used the left over double bumper bars before switching to the single bar.
So how do we know this to be a 31?
The dashboard.
In the scene where the boy is sitting behind the drivers wheel waiting for his dad who is in the hotel bothering Mr. Rance, we are shown shots of the dashboard which is a 31.
The 30 had a different dash.
Here's two pics of the 31 dash as seen in the movie followed by a 30 dash...

Here we have found a rare find, my husband found in his searching this actual car from the Road to Perdition. He traded his 1950 Ford F-1 truck for it. It was a great trade.
