Formally the Buick Motor Division, Buick is an upscale brand of the American manufacturer General Motors. For much of its existence in the North American market, Buick has been marketed as a premium brand, selling luxury vehicles positioned above General Motor's mainstream brands such as Chevrolet, while below the flagship luxury Cadillac division. Buick has the distinction of being the oldest active American marque of automobile, and was the company that established General Motor's in 1908. The Buick Straight-8 engine (Fireball 8) was produced from 1931 to 1953 and sold in Buick models, replacing the Buick Straight-6 engine across the board in all models in 1931. Like many American automobile makers, Buick adopted the straight-8 engine in 1931 as a more powerful alternative to the previous engines.
This particular example was purchased by the vendor c.15 years ago from a private individual located in California. First registered in the UK in November, 2007 and presented in a lovely shade of Green with cloth interior, ‘101 XUG’ was subject to an engine overhaul in c.2017, along with a brake overhaul and replacement tyres. The car has seen little use, having been taken to a number of local shows along with over vehicles in the vendor’s private collection of American cars. Now offered for sale due to ill health, the vehicle comes accompanied with the current V5C document which displays 0 former keepers, as welll as some original owner's manuals, shipping docmentation, including a copy of the california title, an extensive collection of invoices for works in current ownership, a 1940 Buick Colour Charts booklet and a 1940 Buick Brochure.
PLEASE NOTE: The extensive history file for this vehicle has been located by the vendor and is now available at the documents desk for inspection.
