This car got its own episode (5.12, "The Anniversary Gift"--this is the gift). It belongs to Doris, who calls it "Clara" and describes it as 45 years old (this would be 1972-73, so according to her it should be a 1927-28 model). It also breaks down a lot.

Fluted radiator makes me think Buick but I'm not sure.

I'm thinking it's a Packard.

It is a 1927-28 Packard 526 runabout - the last of the six cylinder models and on the shorter wheelbase. This car should have drum headlights - those on the car might be from a 1929 car. Here is one - http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3332/3445541698_5565bd55bf.jpg

There is another one listed a little differently:

That´s because 526 is the chassiscode, not the commercial name. They sold as Packard Single Six, 332 would be the bodycode for the Runabout.

Please don´t put internal codes in the space for modelnames.

A sample from 1925:

Single Six was only used for the first two series. From the Third Series they were just Six. And the eights were just Eights.
