Although not a CL ad, this was forwarded to me. I know only the info provided below and am guessing Henney sideloader. Grill makes it an L37 (Straight 8). Too early to call on a Saturday:

Located in Orchard, NE. Phone number on for sale sign is 402.893.3472.

It sure looks like a Henney, but during that time period Henney and Packard were exclusive with each other. I have seen a picture of this car on this forum in the recent past. The rear interior is all gone.

Negative Mike. Henney/Packard exclusivity started in '38. '37 was the last year Henney built on Olds/GM platform. ;)

OK Atti, gotcha! I had thought it was earlier than that, like 1935. It probably is a Henney then.

This was known as the Henney Progress model. In Gregg Merksamer's book he states that 1937 was the last year for the Oldsmobile Progress model from Henney. And this is a 1937 model.

this car has been sitting on Hy 20 down there for a few years now I posted pictures of it last summer on our return from the meet. tried to call the number on the glass but it would not go threw. the barn behind the car is full of 30s 40s and 50s cars. no one around at that time and two far to make run down for a car I wasn't hot to buy. as stated the interior is gone and despite how it looks it may need repainted. only a good buffing will tell. of course have the 402 aera coad would have helped me make the call with a out of stated phone.
