Looks like a Ford Falcon in the foreground parked to the right.

Mayor Edward F. Harrington, City Of New Bedford. Mayor Harrington was the youngest Mayor ever elected in the city's history. As a kid, I (M.L. Baron) recall visiting the Mayor many times with my grandfather who was politically active in the city. One time the Mayor gave me a shiny silver Benjamin Franklin 50 cent piece, at 7 years old I felt it was quite the honor!

On the way to Fairhaven headed for the Bridge. Judging by the heavy traffic, the bridge probably just closed after a boat passed through.
The car in the foreground looks like a Buick.
