    Can anyone help me identify this....it appears to me to be a 33 Buick country club coupe.....but the door for the golf clubs appears to not be entirely square like the country club coupes were. Can anyone help more? Google is no help.

    Its rough i know. I pulled it from the woods in Northern Michigan.

    It's not a 33 Buick, and I am pretty sure it's not any year of Buick. The swoopy tail is fairly uncommon. Some styling features point to a car made in 1932.

    Try looking at orphan makes of coupes. Hupmobile, Hudson, Studebaker, etc

    Leaning toward the Studebaker/Rockne. 1932-33 vintage.

    Did many of them have the golf club door on the passenger side like that? Buick was the only maker i could find in that era that did that. 32 came down in the rear and didnt sweep out....which leads me to believe its a 33. But....i am not sure of anything really.

    Buick, Cadillac and I think Lincoln had the golf club door.
    Other high end manufacturers did as well.
    I would focus on that to find the answer.

    But as I usually say, it’s a fu!?ing dodge some one put the golf club door on !o_O
     
  9. Looks an awful lot like this 1933 Studebaker President coupe.... 1933 Studebaker President Speedway Coupe.jpg

    I just spotted something that really points to Studebaker. The "belt line moulding" under the side windows is very fat, that you will see on 32-33 Studebakers.

    On a bing image search, I saw a 32 Stude coupe with that beavertail rear deck panel but it was a 3 window coupe, not like the mystery 5 window. Other pics of 32 Stude coupes showed a more common rear body tail. But, Stude made at least 3 body/chassis sizes/models back then.

    EDIT...31 Dodger typed faster... He got it for sure.

    .

    A golf door leans towards a bigger/higher priced model. So, I'd suggest to keep looking at the different models of 32-33 Stude coupes to see if there was a 5 window with that beavertail.

    Right around those years Stude had used model numbers, but soon went to model names like Commander, Dictator and the biggest was President.

    It sure does! Thanks everyone so much. I can imagine finding doors for this will be quite a chore
     
  12. You had better go back to those woods and have another look for those doors.

    Fenders were there but i think a screen door is more structurally sound than the fenders would be....plus someone at some time balled them all up.
     
  15. I see the car had sidemounts like the one in the photo I posted. Do I see a handle for the rear/rumble seat window still attached?

    Yes, that's the opening rear glass. Also I can see a rumble seat hinge in the very lower left of the pic. I would think every President coupe would be a rumble seat, rather than trunk model.

    Edit, I looked at the pic of the back end of the car on your trailer. You can see the water drain drip channels for a rumble seat. Those don't have a drip channel across the bottom edge, but a trunk model does.
