I love my 25, but i also really love the look of this Roadster with the longer hood and sleeker lines. Any ideas?
I want to say Buick. Can I?
Yes you can Richard, guessing is absolutely allowed here.
I don't know what it is but it has Budd wire wheels.
Thanks Andrew,....One piece closer, hopefully.
It IS snazzy!
Duey, i haven't heard the term "snazzy" used in a long time, but you nailed it.
A 1918 Buick roadster with the export hood? Check out that top. This pic came off a spanish language site in South America.
maybe larger image?
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.
OT JOHN,knew a man once he was a member of the GSG&SEA, his first name was Pete, he ran the crane the built the sea wall in NEW BEDFORD MA, I, at the time was driving for gulf oil,and liked talking trucks,there was a show in Campton N.H.we would see one an other, he knew you and we talked about paint jobs ect,your rigs were always clean and pleasing to look at.[and hard to out run]I had a cracker box jimmy,that did a very good job.those were good days.33 years of them.product in Chelsea in 59 was 11.7 per.GREG.
Whatever the make, it's a beautiful car !!
1917 Buick Six Model D-44 Roadster
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.
They are great cars to own and drive. Lots of power
I love those wheels. Any idea what size they would have been?
