Hello to the Buick community on AACA from the beautiful country of Austria.
To introduce myselfe: My name is Georg and I live in the heart of Europe, in the beautiful country of Austria.
I'm a small collector of vintage American cars with a 1940's Harley Davidson WL(A),
a 1943 Willys Overland MB with a 1944 Bantam T3 Trailer (I'm an expert in this field),
a 1967 Mustang GT convertible
and an Exotic, a Kawasaki LTD 440 of 1982 (which was my very first motorized vehicle).
I've been looking for a classic car from the 30s for quite some time.
However, buying and inspecting a car is a bit hard when you are 6,000 miles away.
So you have to use opportunities, that friends live nearby, who can take over this job.
That's why I stumbled upon Brian's 1932 Buick 56S in craigslist, as one of my buddies lives in Phoenix.
Thus, this interesting piece of American history finds a new home in the country of Styria, Austria.
It will have a good time here and I'm glad to have saved it from possible destruction by a Hotrod Shop.
I'll keep you informed about his future story here on this forum.
But now a few questions:
- can anyone estimate how many 1932 56S still drive in the original condition on the road? (1905 were build)
- I read here in the forum that the original color code was in green and black, with a gray interior?
- are there any tips or hints that you can tell me?
Thanks a lot and nice greetings, Georg
