Have had this image for awhile but just uploaded it as I didn't get the year, make and model when I took the image.  I forgot the hood was up so you couldn't see the info on the screen.  All I can tell from the info is it is a 193- something and the model starts with an 'H'.  I've also included an image of the hood ornament close up.

The wheels are definitely new and not style of the 30's ;) 

 

The base may be a 1930 Pontiac Big Six or 6-30?

It's a Pontiac figure all right.

The chicken wire is a bit distracting.

1927-1930 all look about the same. No way of telling it's a 2 or 4 door sedan.

Don't you have a way to check a car by it's license plate?

The suspension is also not period, but modern. A sort of hot rod.

It does appear to be a 1930 6-30 except the description in the window has it starting with an 'H'.

 

Here is a 300% blow up of the description in the window.

Maybe its (H)ot-rod, as wim suggested?

That may be possible, as the second letter does look like an 'o' or an 'e'.

As already identified it's described here as a 1930 Pontiac hot rod:

Well spotted!

edit: seeing it from the back, hdh was right all along: it is/has been a Big Six.

Or: 4-door 1930 Sedan, now a hot rod or street rod.
