THE NEW BUICK EIGHT FOR 1933 – Two Impressive Booklets plus Color sheets

These are three nice items for your Buick Eight collection, including a seldom seen large showroom brochure / booklet which measures about 10 1/8 inches by 10 1/4  inches before being opened up

First, directly below is this impressive large show room floor booklet. What sets this item apart are the fold out pages providing images of various models that increase in fold out size from about 15 inches to about 20 inches wide. The fold-out sections follow 23 pages of text detailing the Buick. Then the fold-0ut sections begin for SERIES 30 – SERIES 60 – SERIES 80 and SERIES 90. I have illustrated some of the sections below, but you will not be disappointed at all. There are 3 fold out pages for each series, thus a total of 12 great plates.

below on the right you see the tabs for the various SERIES that then open up for the colorful fold-out views of the various cars themselves.

following are two sample fold out sections

the second item in this lot is this 20 page sales floor booklet that measures about 7 1/2 inches by 4 7/8 inches, and also includes great color illustrations of the models, and black and white images of car details – on the cover it states, “4 NEW SERIES – 20 New Models … Longer Wheelbases … Lower Body Styles … Wind-Stream Styling … Fisher No-Draft Ventilation”

and completing this lot I am including three binder sheets of “Colors for 1933 Models” and “Color Schemes for 1933 Models” – how many of these have survived?

1934 BUICK – An AMAZING COLOR SHOWROOM CATALOG / BOOKLET / BROCHURE
WHEN BETTER AUTOMOBILES ARE BUILT …
BUICK WILL BUILD THEM

This is a breathtaking sales floor catalogue that measures about 12 1/8 inches by 9 1/8 inches. The date, 1934, is in small type at the bottom of page one. 36 pages covering Four-Door Club Sedan, Model Forty-One; Touring Sedan, Model Forty-Eight; Convertible Coupe, Model Forty-Six C; Series 50 models (Fifty-Seven; Fifty-Eight; Fifty-Six); Series 60 models and Series 90 models. Incredible — some extremely faint moisture spots on the glossy paper, and some pink ink seems to have run at some point in this booklet’s life, but nothing impacting on the images that I think are to “die for” and make me want to purchase a 1934 Buick.  ENJOY – I have looking at this.
