Auction With Some PW Buicks, McLaughlins, Even a Marquette

Recommended Posts

 That quite a collection. Some rare and unusual cars there. Though most look like they have been sitting for several decades, at least.

It's about a four hour drive for me. I'm considering the McLaughlins, particularly the 1913, but don't have much space left and I'm not sure I want that big a project.

Picture quality is poor but the '13 McLaughlin appears to be a model 40, someone should ask for the wheelbase?  Regards, Gary

I thought you might chime in on this one Buick Brother.  I looked up Alida, SK on Google maps.  (That's Saskatchewan Province of Canada for those of you having a cold brew on a warm beach somewhere we'd rather not hear about right now).  Nothing but a wide spot in the road.  Early August.  Hmmm, the snow should be gone except the piles in the parking lots by then.  :P

My father lived his life farther north in Saskatchewan. August was the only month he said he'd never seen snow. That time of year in that corner of the world could be in the range of 100, although I'd hope it would be a bit cooler (fat guys melt, although it's a dry heat).

A 1964 Pontiac Buick??

 

I don't know about Pontiac Buick, but there used to be an Oakland Pontiac, sort of.

 

For one year I think 1924 there was a Maxwell Chrysler. First car in history with hydraulic brakes. Walter Chrysler bought Maxwell and made a model named after himself, then the next year renamed in Chrysler Corporation

Also they list a 1947 Olds with a V-8?? Maybe they swapped out the engine for a rocket which came out in 1949.

 

Also, a case with "a collection of pipe wrenches" but they are all monkey wrenches, which are adjustable wrenches and can't be used on pipes.

Yeah. The 1924 Maxwell Chrysler was the first car in history with 4-wheel hydraulic brakes, Chrysler bought Dodge after the two brothers died, by 1929 I guess. Not sure.

Not to nitpick, but I read somewhere that Duesenberg came with Duesenberg designed four wheel internal expanding hydraulic brakes in the summer of 1921.  Need to do some research to confirm that.  Leon
