Note that the chassis and fenders are from a much newer car (late 30s Cadillac/LaSalle by the looks of it)
It's likely the original body was transferred to this new chassis in its final movie years giving it this odd, somewhat futuristic appearance.
As with many of these old studio backlot cars, it's difficult to find any info on what became of it.
