Three 1932 Buicks at N. Texas Chapter meeting


Recommended Posts

Wow, how often does this happen? We had three 1932 Buicks at our North Texas Chapter monthly meeting today. All are four-door sedans; all have wire wheels with side-mounts; each is a 5-passenger 4-dr. sedan; and each one is a different size or series.

The maroon car is a model 57, belonging to Rex and Marjorie Denny.

The dark blue car is a model 67, belonging to Chuck and Dianne Nixon.

The tan car is a model 91, belonging to the Dennys.

It was interesting to compare the different size, wheelbases, and height of each car. Although each is a 1932 Buick 4-dr. sedan, I think there are very few parts that interchange between each car. I will try to post some photos.

Pete,

Great photos and I really like those cars. But then, I may be a bit partial.

A few points to note. Chuck's has wood wheels with sidemounts. I think the bits that are the same may be limited to the plated parts and other trim bits, but I am not totally sure the radiator shells are the same size. Also, the wizard controil are all the same, as best I understand, also the interior and dash bits. Steering wheels may look the same on closed cars, but I think they also may be slightly different size.

Oddly enough, the 67 is longer then the 57, but I know from comparing Chucks to my 57 while it was in CT, is that the running boards are the same length.
