It comes equipped with Tilt Ray headlamps, Trippe safety lights, twin fender lights, dual side mounted spares with mirrors, a golf door, and a rumble seat.

In 1932 a Buick powered car finished in 11th place at the Indianapolis 500, reinforcing the companies pursuit of performance. The Buicks for 1932 featured new styling including new hood doors instead of louvers, a raked windshield, and a tapered radiator. The Series 90 cars were the top of the line Buicks and were built atop of the large 134-inch wheelbase. There were a variety of body styles available, including the sporty 96C Convertible Coupe. This example was originally purchased for $1,805.
