The rear is a 63-64 Cadillac, the roof is a 61 Chevy Bubble Top, and the front is a Packard, I got to say this is a made for game

Actually this a '57-'62 Vauxhall. I don't know if it's a Cresta or a Velox

Are you sure? 'Cause that's WAY out of place for a game primarily set in '50s America.
Well, in this case, Cresta. Weren't there LHD versions?

Not 100% sure if there were LHD Crestas of that generation, but apparently there were LHD Velox models.

I agree. But the game was made by a bunch of Germans clueless about 1950's America. Like the Australians with La Noire. 1940's cars with turn signals? Still makes me cringe.

And that's coming from a game originally released in 2005 from an American developer.

As far as I know 1940s American cars were factory-equipped with turn signals

I know people were dumb in the past, but I'm pretty sure we had turning signals back then

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automotive_lighting#Turn_signals

"Electric turn-signal lights date from as early as 1907. The modern flashing turn signal was patented in 1938 and later most major automobile manufacturers offered this feature."

Good grief here we go again. Turn signals started showing up on some mainstream cars in the mid 1940s. Most cars in that game were pre WWII. Not only that but they were amber in the game (and added randomly on the body). Name 4 US WWII era cars that have Amber signals. Also explain how the game was set in 1947 but we had cars from 1949 on the streets. They fubard'd it big time. Turn signals started to show up on high end cars back in the late 1930s but they were few and far between.

Wikipedia is not something I would use for making points. Anybody can write those articles. Not to say that much of the site isn't informative. You just can't take all of it as 100 percent accurate.

I'm working on a 1940 Chrysler Sedan right now at my shop and guess what? No turn signals.

Turn signals weren't compulsory on U.S. Roads until the 50s.

Okay I can explain why that is the case in LA Noire, it's because they just ported GTA 4's physics and the turning signals came with it

Makes sense. Just wished they hadn't done it lol. At least just add a signal flasher to the brake lights that already existed instead of adding Amber lights.

Well even in Mafia 1 you had turn signals and if I remember right they were amber too...

Never played Mafia 1. But if that's the case they were mistaken as well.

If we're being fair, the Cresta looks a lot like an American car, especially the '57 Nash. It's no more or less accurate than most generic vehicles.
