This same 2 door coupe body was also used on the 1932 Cadillac La Salle.  Easy starting and much more powerful than the Model A, or other cars of 1932.

There is complete finish work on the entire interior - a carbon fiber dash overlays and same on the door window frames. Great finished work everywhere you look. Finished door panels, beautiful door wind lace, oak wood behind seat shelf, excellent headliner inlayed wooden ribs. The windows roll up smoothly and all glass is excellent. Car doors close nice and tight against the body.

I have no personal interest or stake in the eventual sale of this 1932 Pontiac 402 6 Business Coupe.

Note: Except for the modern adjustable seat and finishing materials that need replacement with the correct interior fabric and patterns, the '32 Pontiac rarely seems to be restored, more often street rodded.

Interesting ad.

Same body as a '32 LaSalle? As far as I know, LaSalle didn't even offer a 5-window coupe that year, only a 3-window and an extended coupe, sort of a Victoria body style. And, they were offered on 130" or 136" wheelbases. Unless this car is a LOT bigger than it looks....

Seems to be in decent condition, and the "updates" could easily be undone, but you're already in "best example anywhere" territory with the $29K asking price.

"This same 2 door coupe body was also used on the 1932 Cadillac La Salle."

 

I knew this assertion would elicit a response.  The GM A-B-C-D body sharing program was just starting at the time this Pontiac was built.  This early A-Body coupe body was shared with Chevrolet and smaller Oldsmobiles.   Its scaled for a chassis up to perhaps 116" wheelbase.  Beyond that, for the mid-range sized Pontiacs, Olds, Buicks they had the larger B-Body.  The idea for body sharing program was initiated and  promoted by Vincent Kaptur Sr. who was Art & Colour's body development supervisor and Fisher liaison under Harley Earl.    Although seemly a common sense idea, prior to this, each division has designed and engineered their own separate bodies which were frequently within fractions of inches the same dimensions, all requiring unique tooling dies.

Could someone who has flipped a car or two explain why you can't take the car off the trailer first and then take the pictures?   You pull out of the widow's driveway and park on the street to start snapping pictures?
