1932 buick data plate


Recommended Posts

I have communicating with a friend in Europe about 1932 Buicks.  He sent me the attached  data plate.  His assumption was that the car built in Germany.

 

I believe it may have been an export car that was modified at a GM plant in Germany.

 

Any thoughts on this data plate???

I’m not an expert on this, but since there was also a GM plant in Switzerland, I know that at hat time the import taxes for finished cars were higher than for car parts. GM therefore built various plants in Europe, including in Berlin Borsigwalde in a part of a former arms factory.

The wagons were assembled from delivered parts and partially modified to meet local regulations.
