The source says LeBaron, but I don't think so....

The tail is distinctive, but the decoration on the waist moulding might be a better lead. The number plates look as though they could be UK rather than what we now have to call "Continental" again.

Positive identification or suggestions welcome.

Clive.

The number plate could be also french or swiss.

Maybe Brichet of Geneva ? Brichet has built bodies on Chrysler chassis.
Look at this Packard by Brichet two years earlier.

Hi, Clive,

I am with You - it is not a LeBaron-made car. I prefer to see a rhd

Chrysler-Carlton Kingston-Imperial CH-sedan/1932

in it.

With greetings, Frank ;) .

Tommy, Frank,

thank you both for your suggestions. I just wish that the picture was a bit better defined so that I could be certain that it is not actually a separate trunk to the rear of the car. The source was probably the GVNL site, but it is definitely a couple of copying generations from the original.

Thanks again,

Clive.
