My guess.....1938 Super 8 Touring Sedan. ;)

Looks like a Super 8 to me either. Nice old footage.

1938 Senior, Super Eight or Twelve. Windshield center trim is the major clue.

I think it is a Twelve due to the running board lights.

Anyone have a 38 Super 8 with running board lights?

I'm aware of at least one 1938 Super Eight with running board lights but it does not carry factory production coachwork.

I was looking thru the parts book and it only seems to mention them on the Twelves

True, for factory bodies. Custom coachwork could have almost any feature the buyer desired,and of course wouldn't be covered in the parts book.
