Actually the hood vent fins tell a lot. Almost all of the cars from that era had fins that were uniform length and ran all the way down from front to the rear of the hood. On your find the are only 4, they are not uniform length and they begin more than halfway back on the hood following the fender lines.

Also, the fenders are kind of wide. Whatever the car is it appears to have had some style.

I think you should restore it.
Btw, it's not a Dogde Brothers based on what I can tell.
