I'm not certain, but I think it's a 1947 Pontiac

Henry, I believe you are correct. Thanks. This seems to be the basic model of the 1947 Streamliner Sedan Coupe in studying the brochures for that model

I remember my parents had one like that when I was born in 1953. I remember it had a clear amber hood ornament of an Indian Chief with cracks all through it. We had it until we replaced it with a brand new 1957 Ford Fairlane, which I did not like as much, as did not have as much room in the back seat for me to move as far a way from my sister as possible. Without air conditioning, it was sure hot in that backseat. We had the Fairlane until we replaced it with a brand new 1966 Ford Galaxy. I learned to drive in the Galaxy in 1970 which I equipped with an 8 track tape player. I still prefer the 8 track over all other forms of tape player. I especially hated cassette players (still do), which replaced the 8 track. Jim Patrick

Now days the Indian Chief would haft to be retired to the reservation/Garage. Politically incorrect but I loved the old lighted hood ornaments KOOL.They don't like My 70s bumper sticker either made during the Oil embargo. "Whip their Ass and take their gas"
