From what little I can see, it looks like an early-1950's Chrysler.

I make it to be a 1951 Chevrolet.

That's what I thought at first but something doesn't look right.
Either it's a modified '51 Chevy or something else altogether.

Note in particular the upper grille bar.

To me it looks a little small to be a 1951 Chevrolet Link to "www.hotautoweb.com" that is part of the reason I thought it was a 1954 Hudson jet http://www.nashnut.com/ba09-54jet1.jpg but the bumper doesn't match either one of thous, to help figure out what kind of car this is can someone please name more possibilities?

Quite interesting.
You would think with such a good front view, someone could identify it.
Modified car?

After noticing the angles on the grill I also want to say a 1951 Chevrolet, but the hood doesn't look right, and the car just looks to small to be a 1951 Chevrolet.

Try this on for size -- a 1950 Plymouth with some missing front trim and a substitute bumper.

Compare:
Link to "static.howstuffworks.com"

Does the subject car have a divided windshield or am I seeing something behind the car through the front and rear windows?

Could work but the shape of the hood does not seen to match, how bout a 1950 Ford with a modified center of the grill? http://static.howstuffworks.com/gif/1950-ford-custom-crestliner-1.jpg

Hmmm.... Not bad.
Any other candidates?
Or shall we conclude this is definitely a modified car?

Any possibility of it being a non-USA product?
Or maybe a Mopar export model, perhaps?

Amazing the possible variety.
Does anyone have this movie? If so, is there a better view of the car?

That probably comes the closest but the upper grille bar in the subject photo is thin and comes straight down on the sides.
The '51 Chevy's is thicker and comes down at an angle.

Isn't it also a little small to be a 1951 Chevrolet?

Is that a logo on the hood? or just a reflection?

I wondered about that too. Hard to say.

Car seems to be rather stark and trimless for an early '50's vehicle. Not even a sign of a hood ornament.
Increases the likelihood of alteration.

I guess it could be a 1950 Plymouth with some trim missing the grill bars seem skinny enough to match, but the shape of the hood does not seem to match, so my main hunch would be a 1951 Ford with the bullet nose missing, what is your thought on that.

Before we confirm that it is some sort of customized US car can you say the likelihood of a non US car.

This has got to be the 1950 Plymouth http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2362/1511862547_9f1526c6ae.jpg the grill bars come to far under the headlights to be a 1950 Ford, the grill bars are to skinny to be a 1951 Chevrolet, they are not slanted enough to be a 1954 Hudson Jet, the fenders match the 1950 Plymouth and so do the grill, I dont see what else it could be?

That was my initial guess as well, but the bumper is different, grille bar is sharper, and trim is much simpler and not as extravagant, not to mention that it's far to small (just look at how tiny it looks compared to the Checker)... :think: One thing I noticed is that it's very dull and un-flashy for a 1950s American car. My guess is that it's either something for the Canadian market (according to IMDB some of the movie was filmed in Toronto) or something from a less mainstream American make (Nash, perhaps?), although I wouldn't completely rule out the possibility of something foreign. Still a fascinating case either way, amazing that it's yet to be solved. Keeps me up at night!

Also, don't you think it looks a little small in physical size compared to the Checker?

Crazy idea, but one of the filming locations is Toronto - could it be one of those mix-n-match Canadian mopars, the Dodges with Plymouth trim and grilles?
