Updated – We are back at the Pinehurst Country Club once again with two photos, one with some of the spectators and their cars and the other showing winners of a polo match held there in 1931 with their awards. The lead image and the enlargeable version of it below show once again women with a 1929 Packard, this time with a Model 640 roadster. This Packard is fitted with disc wheels, a single front-mounted Pilot Ray “Automatic Safety Lamp” that is turned by the steering mechanism, and another pair of lamps that mount on both sides of the windshield stanchion.
Update – The distinctive-looking sedan on the far-left will serve as a perfect mystery car for readers to identify.
The 1930 to ’31 Ford on the far-right is fitted with a very attractive body built by the Murray Corporation of America located in Detroit, Michigan. You editor misidentified the Ford and readers believe that it maybe a 1931 to ’31 Buick?
The photos are courtesy of the State Library of North Carolina.
- The winners of the Men’s Polo Match at Pinehurst Country Club are shown below. Note the car on the far-left with either chrome plated disc wheels or spun aluminum wheel discs.
