Its an old race car, probably a sprint car. Has an early Ford rear axle & spring. Possibly 1928-1931 Model A. Maybe an even earlier Model T axle & spring.
Gilmore Oil Company logo on the side. This one.



Cant find another pic of that particular car, there were many with various versions of the Gilmore logos on the side.

No pix here, lots of text.

In the 1930s, Gilmore-sponsored cars, boats, motorcycles, and airplanes broke over 500 racing records. In 1932, Gilmore raced their first cars at the Indianapolis 500 Motor Speedway. They also raced at Indy in 1933, 1934, 1935, 1936, 1937, and 1941.

What the hell? Where's the chick?
