Contrary to Tim's comment, I believe that 1934 was the last year for the crankcase to have an electric oil level sending unit in addition to the dipstick. If your gasoline gauge (1934 Twelve pictured) doesn't have the word "OIL" beneath GASOLINE, your car doesn't have that feature. The oil level feature was triggered by a small momentary contact switch under the dash rim. The crankcase unit was not unlike a gas gauge sending unit using a cork float.

Note the hefty gas tank size, 32 gallons. Baffled into 6 chambers to minimize sloshing effects.
