BUICK TRUCKS

Recommended Posts

Here is an early one, a 1915 that showed up to a show at Dillsburg PA last summer. The owner did confirm that it was a truck chassis.5aa92298d9fb9_1915BuickDepotHack.thumb.jpg.607a7f07163178a715301bc6f42c7202.jpg

I would need to look at the vin# to confirm.  Does it have the truck step behind the front fender?

Seller’s Description: 1916 BUICK D4 EXPRESS TRUCK This vehicle is so rare it's probably the only one you'll ever see. The only other one we have ever heard rumor of is said to exist somewhere in the Western US. The truck is 99% original except for its paint. No metal rust, no wood rot - ever. It has never been "restored". It is mechanically excellent, and cosmetically very good. Its entire 102 year history is known, and documents of proof accompany the vehicle. Little has been done in all these years to alter the originality of this survivor. Even some "original 1916 dirt" is still on the frame. This Buick D4 truck was bought new by Schmeuser Buick in Hammond, Indiana in 1916 and it was put to work for several years in their service and parts department. It was probably retired to the back of their shop around 1930, where it remained until 1951 when it was facelifted to be rolled through the Hammond Centennial parade. It was finally purchased from Schmeuser Buick by its first private owner in Zeeland, Michigan sometime around 1965. We have had a custom replica bracket cast for remounting the spare tire on the left side as you see in the factory photo. It is ready to go and just needs to be installed. The engine was freshened internally about 6 years ago or so, and the truck was put in storage about 3 years ago while running just fine. It's never been restored - just overcoated with paint in 1951. The engine was professionally dismantled and rebuilt and it runs like a clock. The lights need some work to be made operational again, but otherwise everything about the truck functions well. This rare Buick D4 Express Truck will not disappoint. The vehicle may be seen by appointment prior to purchase in Zeeland, Michigan. Please contact to arrange a viewing, make an offer, or to request any additional information.

Yeah...I wish I could justify the dollars right now. An unexpected Reatta purchase and new furnace/AC/hot water tank for the house have put a hold on additional toys. Sigh.

The Moxie vehicle is a converted car.   Cute vehicle though.

 

The white delivery truck in a couple of posts previous is from the GM Heritage Collection.  It is a 1918 Model E-4.  I think the picture was taken at the GM Vehicle Engineering Center in Warren.
