Anyone know what make model or year this sedan may be?
Found this unknown sedan while out on a hike, looked all over for a tag or something which would help in identifying it but I found nothing. Anyone have any ideas? The second photo shows the ornate door handle and I believe it may have been a suicide door sedan? Radiator and grill were of course gone, these seem to be the first thing to disappear...

This car appeares to be a 1926 or 27 Essex 4 dr. sedan. This car has the distintive piano hinged suicide doors and three rivitts on the "a" piller. The roof on the 28 seems to be lower in high as compared to the example pictured here. the fenders have a striking similitary to the 28. If I was a betting man my money would be on either a 1926 or 1927 Essex considering the 27 Essex has the third side window whereas the 28 does not. Inclosed is a picture of my 1928 Essex sedan and the guard dog "Bones" on the roof for comparison.
sources: A 1928 Essex Challenger 4 door sedan owner.

p.s. Having compared the two pictures together it appeares that roof hight on both cars are the same. p.p.s. "Bones" doesn't bite, he just look bad.

Great job: An excellent job of identification has unveiled an automobile's proof in history, Moreover, many folks as myself now may enter another tangent of a fantasy as we gaze at the photo of rust and nature. I have over the years wondered what the facts were of some old, rusted and unidentified automobile that I had stumbled upon. This is good stuff. A Photograph of questions answered with a real fine specimen of a factual answer. Let's keep this up people. Thanks.
