1932 Essex Super Six Coupe
Chassis no. 1288682
Essex was another successful American auto manufacturer that was taken down by the Depression. Before the make’s demise in 1932, they showed great innovation at a popular price. Before they fell, they had popularized the enclosed sedan body style at an affordable price, won the Pikes Peak Hillclimb and numerous other races and pioneered the first use of warning lights on the dash board.

The offered lot is from the penultimate year of manufacture. The paint is a pleasing maroon with black fenders, top and hood. The interior is maroon plush. An attractive accessory is an outside mount gabardine travel trunk with leather trim. The fenders are cut out for side-mounted spares, but the spares are not present.

This Essex provides an opportunity to own one of the most popular American cars of the pre-Depression era.
