Can anyone help identify the pre-war car in this photo?

My parents found this photo in my Great-Grandfathers belongings (the car was not found, only the photo). I am not an expert in pre-war cars but would like to know the year, make and model. Any help would be appreciated. image

    I suggest rotating the drawing before publishing.  I'm getting neck cramps trying to look at this...

    If you don't get an answer here, I'd suggest going to the AACA Forum and posting there.  (You have to join the website but it's free, and a great forum!)

    Yeah, I agree. I need to use my pic instead of my phone. I will try to fix the orientation.

    1927 Model T Tudor? 

    Just a wild guess...

    Hudson before 1925. Look at the rad emblem white triangle.  Ray

    Hudson white triangle emblem on radiator. In the Butler Book the only picture of a pre 1925 Hudson with a round light near windshield was 1922. The light may have been an option for other years.

    What state did the car reside?  The size of the license plate can sometimes be a clue as to year.

    It looks like a White Triangle, but  it is definitely not a Hudson.

    Someone needs to blow that picture up and try and see what the emblem looks like a little closer up.

    What other kind of vehicle has a white triangle . The picture is to old to be color. Double click on picture with left finger and it is very big.  Ray

    It doesn't get very big when I click on it (although it gets a little bigger), but sure looks like a white "upside-down" triangle.

    I tried expanding the picture too, but it loses detail.   The  shape of the front fenders and radiator  surround  matches no Hudson of the era.  It obviously has drum headlamps which were in vogue for 1922 to 1926.

    Really just looking at the front fender shape and that the radiator isn't chrome but the name is a shinny blob; plus the window has a dividing strip roughly 2/3rd down  I'd say it could be a 1925 Dodge - with cowl lights changed - look at my picture and compare it with the unknown -
