Can You Identify These New Cars?

Found a copy of this great old Motorola auto radio ad on the HAMB. Can anyone identify N?

I was being a rhetorical smartass - N is a Crosley station wagon.

Did the ad actually claim N was a Crosley? Doesn't look right to me. I still go with Nash Rambler. Windows are wrong, outside visor was rare on Crosley but fairly common on Ramblers, I think a factory option.

I think it would be funny to revive that ad using 2011 cars, because my answer would be a resounding "nope!"

N is definitely a Crosley wagon- it's a spot-on profile, right down to the bomber windows. Plus, the Rambler wasn't introduced until 1950, and I believe (from the other cars in the ad) that this is from 1948 or 49.

And, Crosleys did indeed have Motorola radios.

Kinda looks like a "Keller " made in 1947.
