Default What make of car is this picture?

I know the concept car for the PT Cruiser is the Pronto Cruiser, but this picture I came across looks more like the PT to me. I am wondering if anyone can tell me what the car in the picture is, so I can look up more pics to see what the front looks like.

It looks like a late 40's Chrysler Windsor to me.As a long time VW builder I can tell you it is definitely not a VW.

Seems you nailed it, Google image and a search for 48 Chrysler Windsor, some variations but some identical back end. Seems to me this is the closest old car that the PT designers might have had floating around in their heads.

I think SCbluePT had it right looking at this 48 Chrysler Windsor restoration project. Need to click on "view all pics" to see the back end of restoration to compare to above picture. Too bad the PT did not have suicide doors, but looks like the old police car picture I posted and looks most like the PT, that I have found. Seems the front flared fender even continues into door panel like our PT's.

I'm with Barrels on this one; I had a 41 Dodge Luxury Liner Town Sedan, it had some "advanced" options. Mine was Canadian built, it was one of 2359 built before the war or something like that. It didn't have suicide doors. It had a fluid drive transmission, that means it had a clutch as well as a torque converter.
You could drive it as a 3 speed OR put it in 3rd gear release the clutch and drive it like an automatic! It was a bit slow from a stop,but, no shifting!
Also it had inside dash mounted heater controls, and electric wipers.. advanced features at the time. Some cars still had vacuum wipers up till about 57~58 I think.

I find this interesting. I can find pics of this car that are nearly identical as well. I wonder if maybe there are many mislabeled pictures online, making things difficult to identify for those of us 'not of that generation'.

After I followed that link to the pics, I see that car is quite different at the front than the one I had. The back end looks very similar though..
