Classic cars of the 1930s helped define what a classic car should be, as you'll discover by linking to the cars in the chart below.

Even during the Great Depression, some in society thrived, and an army of talented engineers, artisans, and custom coachbuilders stood ready to serve them.

The opulent automobiles they created were dream cars to the millions who could never afford them, and dreams come true for the privileged few that could.

It was an era of such certified classics as the 1930-1937 Cadillac Twelve, the 1930-1932 Packard Eight, and the 1930-35 Rolls-Royce Phantom II. Check them out.
