Personally I have no clue, but a quick google says 4 holes standard in '55-'57 Century.

BTW, 1957 Century was just my first (apparently wrong) guess, as all I could judge from the photo was mid-'50s Buick of some model.

Headlights look right, but we need a slightly better look at the taillights to confirm.

Thanks, but in the ORIGINAL photo by Ron, post #4276, and the pic that started all this discussion, we cannot see the grill . . . only part of the front bumper.

You can blame Ron for posting an untitled picture, but I prefer you blame me for asking what it was.

1955 Studebaker. I like their rather unusual styling, for the most part:
