The 1937 Franay Roadmaster survives here in the U.S., and was shown at the 2016 AACA Southeastern Spring Meet in North Carolina, at Charlotte AutoFair. Built for a French film director, it still has the original key tag with the name of the first owner's estate/residence.

I met the current owner, and will get additional information from him soon. The Coupé de Ville was shown in the club's HPOF Class (Historic Preservation of Original Features), where it won an AACA Original Award. I'm on the HPOF Committee, and the Buick was one of the cars my team judged...very cool! It was recently shown at the Hilton Head Concours d'Élégance, where it won a trophy award.

The owner will be very excited to find the period B&W image of his Buick, and I'd love to find more for him.
