Saw these on Facebook Marketplace. The seller says they are Hudsons, but I think they look like 22nd Series Packards. What do you think?

I think it is an amalgamation. Without having the more pointed Packard top shape on the grill, IMO the front looks more like the prewar Nash 600 model with the square top half of grill and wide bottom portion. In the side view the back end doesn't slope down as much and I think looks more like a postwar stepdown Hudson. I think there was also a prewar car that had square headlight rims but can't think of which one at the moment.
