Buick succumbed to the depression (with fewer than 44,000 units sold) and Buick also succumbed to the GM bigwigs complaining  about  Buick Models in 1933 (the Model 80s at 130 inch wheelbase and Model 90s at 138 inch wheelbase) being almost as large and as fancy as the Cadillac models for 1933. In 1933 Buick just got too big for its britches. Buick management was removed by GM in 1933 and new management was thrown into the Buick name. For the 1934 year Buick immediately downsized with smaller vehicles with a less expensive price tag so as to keep the Buick line of vehicles below Cadillac. More cars were sold but for all big auto manufacturers after 1933 more cars were sold than in 1933. The 1933 Victoria Coupe Model 96  at 138 inch wheelbase (being offered for sale also with AACA this January 2021) is the pinnacle of the large Buicks.

 

The 1933 Buick Model 96 being offered for sale out of Alabama shows us the rarity by looking at the price listed. This 1935 Buick Victoria Coupe being discussed on this forum is appealing and offered at a reasonable price point at much less than the 1933 Buick Model 96. However, my taste with Buicks ends in 1933 with the large Model 80 and Model 90 cars that in 1933 looked as good or even better than a Cadillac.   By 1935 the Buick name was back to a vehicle that cost well below a Cadillac, was much smaller than a Cadillac, and appeared to the "eye of the buyer" to also be less expensive than a Cadillac.

In 1934, Buick received Harlow Curtiss and Cadillac received Nicholas Dreystadt, both with the mandate to rationalize model ranges and offering, reduce costs and, above all, return both to a profitable basis.  Each performed is mandate like an Olympic champion.
