    11312 ---- Could the coupe in question be a 1936 Chevrolet? Note that it has a line of pompoms or something similar along the roof and right windshield. There appear to be a couple of these on the grille, one of which may be what Bob saw as a Studebaker red ball. There appears to be a piece of chrome near the top centre of the grille which could be the Chev logo.

    Bob,

    You have better eyesight than I do; I was thinking it was a 37, but now see it could be a 36.

    Sorry, Bob; I didn't mean to mislead anyone. I'm sure the car in front of the dump truck and the dump truck itself are NOT Studebakers; I didn't mean to imply they might be.

    The only one I think is a '30s Studebaker is the coupe to your left (as you are looking at the picture) and in front of the dump truck. It looks like the Studebaker red ball in the grille and the flowing lines from the grille back to the cowl. BP

    Bob,

    Just hazarding a guess here, as I don't know how to blow the picture up, but I don't think either the two cars are Studebaker's. The coupe has elements of a 36-37 but the grille and hood do not match up. As far as the sedan in front of the dump truck, I was thinking 1935 but the grille is too big. The windshield is correct for a 35, but the side styling of the hood went all the way up to the body colored grille shell. The 35 Dictator, Commander, and President had center hinges with a metal stop and the rear doors were "conventional rear opening". You could open both doors on a 35 but they were limited to how far they could open.

    I hope someone will prove me wrong. Love seeing pictures of Studebakers in Roadside America.

    From the Sunday, November 22, 2020 Old Motor. Studebaker coupe in the lane next to the dump truck, in front of the dump truck? Can anyone identify it more specifically? BP

    Wow! With all that high water there's going to be a lot of rusty cars before too long.

    1941 two door sedan setting at the power pole. I think a Champion.

    If the pic is truly contemporary to the car, and the toy tractor, trike, little girl's outfit seems to confirm...if she still survives...probably someone's grandmother (great grandmother?) by now. A terrific picture though, and would make a great Turning Wheels Cover photo.

    In 1965, the Caprice was a top-of-the-line option (RPO Z18) 4-door hardtop in the Impala series. In 1966, it was spun off as a separate series, composed of 2- and 4-door hardtops and wagon. The convertible was still only available as an Impala and Impala SS.

    AFAIK, 1965 remains the only year in which Chevrolet built and sold more than 1,000,000 Impalas...and that does NOT include Impala station wagons, nor does it include Bel-Airs or Biscaynes! BP
