51 Buick Super or Roadmaster. Were those bars running above the bumper from the front wheel opening to the indicator light/overrider combination an optional item? Official literature does not show it on any models, but we know of other mistakes with that literature as well, due to the Korean Conflict and the shortage of metals.

Very nice, but somewhat large image:

Don't 51's have more vertical bars? 1951=25; 1952=17
*Forgot about deeplinking those pages; should work now.

There is probably more here to know what the Dodge is, but it's probably too out of focus for its own page.

Dodge, what Dodge? I see a 56 Plymouth and a 63 Chevrolet.

Sorry, lack of side trim confused me a bit. Then it would be a Plaza? I'm sure one can find other images as blurry on imcdb, though this practice certainly is not encouraged ;)
Page could be either for Buick or Chevrolet in my opinion. Plymouth is too peripheral. Can Chevrolet hood emblem offer clues to model/trim?

And if it's not a 1951 Buick, it's the 1952 Buick.

At least we know it's 1951. Counting from the center of the grille to the right side of the image, there are 12 bars plus the center=25 in all. 1952 grilles had 17 bars.

Too many grille bars. This one is a 1951. A 1952 grille would look like this:
