Almost looks like that 1946 Dodge Tony Curtis was cranking up in "The Defiant Ones."

The grille does look like a 1946 Dodge.

Was it called a Town Sedan?

Postwar Dodges were not called town sedan,but simply 4-door or 2-door sedan.The only Dodges that were called town sedans were the 1941 and 1942 models with the rear doors opening forward in the safe direction and the blank rear quarters.They were part of the Custom series ( D-19 C in 1941 and D-22 C in 1942).The Dodge here is obviously a postwar model so anyhow not townsedan.

But how differentiate between the usual model with six side windows and this model with only four? According to my info Town Sedans were available in 1941/42 and in 1946-49(first series).

I have further searched this and yes you are right ,Dodge Town Sedans were still available in the first post ww II series in the D-24 -C line . They are differentiated by the absence of C-pillars as in 1941/42 .Sorry for that error. Now in this case , I think one cannot be certain that this is a Dodge town sedan because rear views on the thumbnails do not seem to be those of a 1946-48 Dodge ,even not a town sedan: the rear is trunkback ,the rear window is a 3 pieces one and the beltline trim runs under the rear window. Dodge sedans and town sedans had a fastback rear , a one piece rear window , and the beltline trim did not extend under the rear window but stopped at trunk height.I have a strong suspicion that the thumbnail views are those from a 1942-1947 Cadillac .So I would keep 1946 Dodge Custom D-24-C at least for the large picture.
