    The C32-8 replaced the C30-7A in GE's catalog. 10 were built, all for Conrail - the only buyer of the C30-7A.

    The C32-8 shared the angular body style of the recently introduced C39-8. However, the C32-8 is 3' shorter. More obvious than this is the fact that the 32 has a 12-cylinder engine, so there are only 6 full-height hood doors per side.
