The major marketing point for the Buick in 1932 was the new “Wizard Control.” This new feature allowed the driver to shift through all of the gears without touching the clutch pedal; instead utilizing an automatic-style clutch. This new feature allowed for a more enjoyable driving experience for Buick owners. Also available for this year was a standard compression engine, or a high compression engine at no extra charge.
The style and grace of the new for 1932 Buick was readily apparent. The charm and spaciousness of the interiors were also quickly appreciated and commented on. However, as stated by Buick advertising of the time, “to really know the new Buick, it was heartily recommended that you drive one.” With that, you could truly understand why Buick considered this model to be their best effort yet, and by far.
The 1932 Buick offered here is completed in cream paintwork with a brown beltline, hood doors and fenders. Under the hood is a 230-cid inline eight-cylinder engine. Features on this Buick include the Flying Lady mascot, dual horns; fender mounted marking lights, wood spoke artillery wheels, dual sidemount spare tires and a luggage rack.
