That's interesting as the 614 came out Jan 4 1930. Perhaps someone put a 1929 plate on this coupe or its based on birthday of owner, (previous sale if a Co) so later would get a 1930 plate at renewal.

Jan 1 1932 is an update to the 614 and spear hoods gone as is Oakland plant. Dec 17 1930, Oakland plant stops making Durant cars.
Not surprised Charlie. The 407 is a Canadian model but copied by Oakland to a point. Oakland based theirs on the 614 and used spear handles not the plain ones we have that sort of resemble the 619, but without the raised center. Reg Bent's 407 Rugby has the plain and I suspect Lance's 407 from Ray Walker also plain handles. Any 407 I have seen up here has the plain ones. Terry's site shows the correct hood with louver and space in the middle. Could well be someone switched yours to the spear just like dealers switched spear hoods to louvered hoods if the customer wanted that style instead.
This is a 407 open car handle
