  • 1932 President convertible coupe, car in barn

    http://i230.photobucket.com/albums/e...g?t=1284760274

    OK not exactly a barn but an old single stall garage. 1932 President model 91 convertible coupe. Low production. Only 8 survivors accounted for, two in museums. This is one of only two that is assembled and in substantially original condition. Not for sale.

      So what is its fate, Richard? WIll it go back in the garage, or will someone give it the attention that it deserves?

            One of the classiest cars ever built. Way out of my league, but I love to look at them.

              What kind of wheels are on it? They look like chrome plated steel spokes. Very modern looking for 1932.

                Hello Richard,

                A while back you posted factory photos of Duplex Phaetons. I sent you a PM concernig the possible availability of photos to a 26 EP Big Six Duplex Phaeton 120" wheelbase and did not get a response and was wondering if you received my message. If not, please contact me.

                Thanks,

                  Yes, they were called artillery wheels and this particular design was offered only in 1932. I have mentioned to several people over the years that modern wheel makers must have been familiar with Studebakers '32 wheels since many of today's cars use a similar design.
