A very similar car was driven by Henry's parents (Arthur and Ruth) from Pasadena, California, straight through to Philadelphia, PA in early 1938. Hank bought this car as a momento, but is not ready to duplicate the ride. The 35 Buick was bought from the lady owner shown in the dress up photos whose grandfather purchased the car in 1936. One owner for 80 years. Sold to Hank in 2016.
Harley Earl was responsible for many of the “Art Deco” stylings of General Motors Products. The familiar, rounded shapes and flowing lines of GM automobiles are largely due to Mr. Earl’s design influence. The Series 50 could seat five people, comfortably and carry a full complement of luggage for long trips.
