This Car Matters: 1932 Buick 57S

March 13, 2014

Get the story on this all-original 1932 Buick Model 57S, currently part of a student-run project at the Pennsylvania College of Technology. The Historic Vehicle Association recently caught up with PCT auto body professor, Roy Klinger, and first year automotive restoration technology student, Joe Kretz, to get the rundown on this exceptional vehicle.

For its THIS CAR MATTERS movement, the HVA is asking people to share their stories about special vehicles — ones that helped to shape their lives and communities, our history and our heritage.

Check out the video below as well as our THIS CAR MATTERS Instagram page for daily posts featuring historically significant vehicles. If you haven't yet shared your story, head on over to the HVA’s THIS CAR MATTERS page to find out how you can participate.

    My father in 1932 was 40 years old and worked both at Buick and Fisher Body in Flint, Michigan [he might have helped build this car!] Here is a website for Buick nostalgia....for those that are interested. Hope to see the restored version sometime! Keep up the good work students and staff at Pennsylvania College of Technology.
