Yah... I was thinking late 40s-early 50s Hudson, but couldn't find right grill. Agree on Plymouth.

Thanks folks. Looking at images on Google, Plymouth looks like a match for sure. Really appreciate the help!

Grilles today are all plastic with a chrome plating. Much like the 'chrome' parts were when you built a plastic car model kit.
