Coachbuilding, as the manufacturing of bodies for passenger vehicles, was at its peak in the Classic Era of the 1930s. Most ultra-luxury car makes, such as Duesenberg, Bugatti, Rolls-Royce, and Delahaye sold vehicles as chassis only and each chassis had a coach-built body. Some car owners wanted a unique body on their car and had a custom body built for it by a coachbuilder. Join Sam Grate, collections manager of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum in a presentation about the history of coach building and the most popular coachbuilder and custom designs of the 1930s.
