General Motors boss, Alfred P. Sloan, positioned Chevrolet as their entry level model, with Pontiac a rung up, followed by Oldsmobile, Buick, LaSalle, and Cadillac. The Buick models had a hierarch of their own, consisting of four series - the 40, 50, 60, and 90. This allowed Buick to offer cars for as little as $820 and as much as $2,000, which helped broaden the company's appeal to a wide array of buyers.

In 1934, the Model 60 was powered by a 278 CID, overhead-valve engine offering 100 horsepower and an abundance of torque. The engine was fitted to a synchronized three-speed manual transmission with a floor-mounted gearshift lever. The chassis was fitted with General Motor's 'Knee-Action' independent front suspension and solid rear axle. Mechanical drum brakes were fitted at all corners.

This particular 1934 Buick is a Model 66C Convertible Coupe with Rumble Seat bodywork. Buick produced just 235 examples of the Model 66C in 1934, and it is believed that this was one of the 10 earmarked for export.

The current owner's husband purchased the car in 1972 from its prior owner in Indiana. In the early 2000s, it was given a full restoration which was completed in 2005-2006.
