One last outside comment. Automobiles in the 1930’s had large “vertical” grills. Note that this grill has a horizontal part. Buick had an adventuresome design group and this grill was “Inspired” by the 1938 Mercedes F! race cars. But this is a story for another time.

Painted metal not wood.

One of the first cars to have directional signals and a heater standard.

Manual transmission, no starter button, as was custom, but integrated with gas pedal.
