Maybe the Sports Model

With the custom paint, bucket seats and hot-rod style hood louvers. But actually, seriously heavy-duty. I count at least 14 leaves in the rear springs. And shaft drive! Macks of the same time period used chain drive.

Since we can see St. Ignatius Church in the distance at the right, this puts us on Oak St. looking through the Panhandle of Golden Gate Park. In the 1932 photo below, St. Ignatius is at the left with the trees of the Panhandle running across the bottom.
