I love my 25, but i also really love the look of this Roadster with the longer hood and sleeker lines. Any ideas?

A 1918 Buick roadster with the export hood? Check out that top. This pic came off a spanish language site in South America.

the website "automotive timelines. com" uses this exact picture to illustrate what a 1917 Buick looks like- not explanation of those wheels though.........

I am going to guess six cylinder Buick because of the long hood. Probably 1917-1920ish. The made fours and sixes and the length difference is typically in the hood. Just a guess.

Thank you Gents, you never disappoint. :-) I just looked up the production numbers for the D-44 and found they only made 4,366 of them. I bet there aren't very many of them still around.
