Cars in the 1930s were significantly more luxurious than their 1920s counterparts. Constant innovation led to higher sales, safety and customer satisfaction.
Other important new inventions include automatic transmission and V-8, V-12 and V-16 engines. Power had suddenly been completely redefined.
There were about 6 new cars introduced in the 1930 line. Cadillac released a new V-16 engine that redefined personal power in the “affordable” automobile.

We will be covering each year very soon, but in the meantime, please enjoy over 100 pictures below of nearly every car that was sold in the 1930s.
