I would say its a 1931 Chrysler. The one piece windshield and you can just see that the front fenders don't have side skirting.

I am somewhat puzzled here by the windshield. The engine capacity indicated on the vehicle details of 4607 cc corresponds to ~= 282 cubic inches . This matches the eight cylinder engine of 100 hp bore and stroke of 3.25 X 4.25 inches that equipped the late 1931 Chrysler DeLuxe Eight series ,built from april 1931 to 1932 to replace the former CD units .However this series normally used the split individually opening windshields , and this one has a single windshield. Concerning the fender skirting it indeed appears a 1931 model with a larger gap between the wheel and the fender than in 1932.So I agree with Richard of C , 1931 Chrysler DeLuxe Eight sedan , but the widshield needs further search.Was it possible to order a one piece ? Or was it replaced afterwards?

So is it correctly listed as DeLuxe Eight or should it be Eight DeLuxe?

We have two other listed as "De Luxe Eight".

As I indicated my view is that this is a - late - 1931 Chrysler DeLuxe Eight model because of the engine data. In 1932 , Chrysler offered 9 distinct series of which 4 were carry-over 1931 models .This was the case for the Chrysler DeLuxe Eight with the 282 inches engine which was produced untill november 1931 . Those carry-overs were sold and registered as 1932 cars ,so it is not uncorrect to list it as a 1932.The " true" 1932 Chrysler Eight known as the CP line had a new chassis and a larger engine of 298.5 cubic inches.

The body on this one looks odd - maybe UK built?

Late 1931 Chrysler DeLuxe Eight. It has an English built body. Aluminium over a mostly ash frame.
(The sadly late) Michael Sedgwick thought it was most likely made by a bodybuilders in Eastbourne, who much
later built "Dormobile" campers. He took a great interest in any unusual car, and spent some time pondering
the origins of GX573 while at the Pre50 Club "Rally of The Giants." in 1979.
I owned the car from 1967 to approx 1983. The first ride was being towed by a very good friend on a fixed pole
behind a J Type Vauxhall from just outside Scarborough down to Surrey, 260 miles, having inflated the tyres
and bled the brake lines. Very interesting journey. Although we later covered many miles as a family, including back
to Yorkshire to make enquiries from the previous "long term" post-war owner, an Army Officer, he had sadly died.
The local Garage in Filey who had serviced the car for many years informed me that it was originally totally white.

Further to my comment, during my ownership the cylinder block 4100cc always leaked slightly from the water-jacket,
but I believe sometime in the 1980's the car enjoyed a 4600cc transplant.

You gentleman are quite familiar with Chryslers of that vintage. I'm seeking the location of any existing 1932 Chrysler CP models, as well as any cars with right-hand drive. Any information would be appreciated.
