An integral part of General Motors' burgeoning empire during the 1920s, Buick was widely famed for the advanced engineering and durability of its products. Boosted by a series of high-profile exploits including the first automotive expedition to Afghanistan (1923), victory in the Leningrad-to-Moscow endurance trials (1925), assorted African hill-climb wins, a tug of war with an elephant and patronage from the Sultan of Johore, the marque celebrated sale number 2,000,000 in 1926. Introduced two years before then, Buick’s Series 24 models could be had with a choice of four-cylinder or six-cylinder engines. The former sat on a 109-inch wheelbase and were powered by a 170 cu in (2.8 litre) four-cylinder OHV unit allied to three-speed manual transmission. Three times as expensive as a Ford Model T, the Series 24 four-cylinder cars boasted such niceties as detachable cylinder head and four-wheel drum brakes.

Finished in Dark Green with Black upholstery, ‘BF 9349’ is described by the vendor as being in ‘very good’ condition with regard to its engine, gearbox, electrical equipment, interior trim, bodywork and paintwork. Said to have been comprehensively restored in America before being imported to the UK last year, the Buick sports an original Boyce Motometer and authentic wind deflectors.
