Actually,  I think it is a 31 CG,  but I cringe at second guessing you.

I would not want to throw down a Keiser31 challenge.:lol:

Just checked the net, and "supercars.net " says she is a '32 CL.

I don't think so..............

Another image of a '32 CL had doors in the hood sides.

 

In any case, she makes the Dusy blush with envy....................

I have always been more than happy with my 34 Mopars but with the 'call of the question' being dream car, price is no object and largely unobtainable, I have to go with a 1933 Studebaker St. Regis Brougham, which I believe there are none known to still exist.  Marvelous!!

Should have been more specific: 1933 Studebaker Speedway St. Regis Brougham Model 92.  I think the blue one posted by Keiser is the shorter Victoria.

AACA recognized ????? It's a hot rod!

YES! The Doan Spencer '32 is a Hot Rod that the owner could apply to be a Certified Race Car in class 27A. There have been many Hot Rods that are AACA Certified on the field at Hershey. This a photo of the same car back in the day. Bob

I was going by what I saw on the net. It was labeled a 1932, but it DOES look more like a 1931. I have certainly been wrong before.

 

Yeah,  the net lies.   The 31 CG and the 32/33 CL are pretty easy to tell apart by the Hoods on the later which have the Count de Sakhnoffsky treatment extending them to the windshield.

 

This car has a cut down windshield,  there were two that had it,  the other has been restored back to the Lebaron windshield.

Since I mentioned Dietrich,  one of my all time favorite cars.  This is the Al Jolsen car that was blue before restoration.

What year is that Packard? Compared to the Pierce Arrow behind it? Door handle designs are very different. What was the last year Packard used door handles like that?

I think the door handles are odd also, believe the car is a 1933-34 based on the fenders. Bob

That's too bad. Factory hot rods are OK though.

Factory built race cars are OK like this one, when NASCAR really meant National Association for "STOCK" Car Racing; Not Toyota's running a V-8 somewhere based on the SBC 10 times removed that never came with the car.

OR,

 Image result for 1963 Pontiac Tempest 421 SD image" They were built by the factory and ran in Super STOCK and FACTORY Experimental 

 

Under the hood 1963 Pontiac Tempest 421/405 HP Super Duty Lightweight SafariNot built in some guys home garage or race shop;

Image result for image of hot rod race cars being built in the 50's"

 So that's what I mean!!!

The factory race cars of the 50s, 60s exist largely due to golden age hot rods, some of which went on to sanctioned racing, no?  Just sayin.. 😎

Your stock car will be on the Hershey show field with a Hot Rod on either side competing for the same AACA awards, welcome to class 24A. Hope you don't have a problem with INDY cars and GP cars, they will be in completion for the same awards.  Bob

Bob, regarding that Chrysler Imperial roadster from 1931 , for decades there was one located in the Syracuse, NY area I believe. Fellow belonged to CCCA.

Not sure if the car pictured is the same car or not.
