Older Restoration Still Shows Very WellPaint And Exterior Chrome In

Straight-8 Runs And Drives By 1932, Billy Durant's aggressive
acquisitions had made General Motors into a megacorporation and
Buick is the one that started it all. Buick was just behind
Cadillac at the top of the list for discerning buyers. Looking at
this '32 Cabriolet it is easy to see why even the British monarch
Edward VIII approved. That's right, this is a Canadian-built
McLaughlin-Buick and it has received a high-quality restoration at
some point. This Buick is bathed in luxurious richness with a
vanilla creme body, crimson fenders and accents, and burnt orange
wire wheels with chrome center caps. Opulent, but not over the top,
this Buick shows just enough panache without stepping on Cadillac's
toes. The paint and exterior chrome shine the way they should and
appear in good condition overall. The tan leather interior is taut
and shows some signs of use but still in good condition. The dash
is interesting with its art-deco chrome headpiece over the gauges
and glove compartment. The lavender veneer of the gauge cluster and
glove compartment doesn't seem to match the color scheme of the
car, but they definitely make a statement. The chrome trim here
appears to be original with some pitting observed, but the lenses
appear to be in good shape. The beveled rearview mirror features an
embedded clock on the right side. 1931 was the debut year for the
overhead-valve straight-eight engine and synchromesh transmission
and this one runs and drives great. This car would make a great
addition to anyone's collection who wants an excellent
running/driving example of Buick's early years.
