Looks like a BUICK

Inclined to agree. Buick.

1926 Durant Star Huckster

The GM auto in the photo for Sunday night is definitely a 1949 Buick and either a Super or Roadmaster model. Special continued the 1948 styling throughout 1949.

Once again Bill has the correct answer. STAR I need to wake up earlier. I can't out run him.

Thanks John for setting the record straight, and my apoligies to Brocky, he was right on the time frame.

No apologys necessary!! Granted GM used that body style into about 52, But I did not see anything else that new in the picture.

. I also question the local as being Austin?? It is too flat!! Austin is in a river valley with lots of hills..

Just for the record, the town where the truck was photographed is "New Smyrna Beach, Florida."

Rocket's right, it is New Smyrna Beach, but to us locals its just plain ol' New Smyrna. I don't know how Bill White knew almost EXACTLY what is painted in the windshield, but he nailed it. This truck is a 1926 Durant Star Four. William C. Durant introduced the Star Four in 1922, and it was available as a delivery van and depot wagon. It was intended to compete with Chevrolet and was priced at $400. In 1927 the name changed to Rugby. Durant was out of business by 1932.
