Another "What is it"

Recommended Posts

Just got this photo spruced up from an old photo of my great grandpa. Looks to me that the car is a 32 Cad. But not sure of model.

With rare Budd wheels no less!

Those look like General Jumbo wheels, to me.

While it is possible they were made in other sizes, General Jumbo wheels usually were 14" aftermarket wheels for conversion to baloon tires. The wheels on the Studebaker look to be 17", a conventional size for 1932 cars, and the tires don't appear to be baloons.

The General Jumbo wheels are only 9 spoke, the wheels on the Studebaker are 10 spoke.

Those are the optional factory wheels offered by Stude. There is a write up in Hemmings Classic Cars, a few issues back, of a coupe with the same wheels
