Hi Denn,
              I have looked through my big book of cars and although
there are similar ones, none are a good match.
  At first I thought it looked like an Austin series 10 or 12 from approx
1927 / 1930's. although the body and the wheels are the same the
front of the radiator and the headlights are different. As I know very
little about car models, I am afraid I will have to leave it to the experts.
Sorry,
tomkin

Thanks Tomkin,
        At least I think the year would be about right going on the ladies age, she is the little one in the picture.

That's easy Bodger - a farm in Doodlakine, 1930 or there abouts. But okay, to be serious, Doodlakine is east of Perth, some 200km and of course being in Oz in the 1930s, would obviously mean that it was an imported car. Most likely would have been either British or American, but of course that doesn't rule out vehicles from other countries!

A friend suggested that it may be an Oldsmobile!!!!!!!!!

Is it worth contacting a motor museum?  In the UK there is the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu.

It has the look of a 1925 Essex sedan but with the rear end having differences so maybe an earlier model of it???
