  1. Below are three more photos of the 1936 Buick Roadmaster Brewester Bodied Town Car. I found on the web. They were posted by conceptcarz.com A very good web site on Classic and collecter cars. "Have you seen "The Brunn ?" Dave BCA 26773 1938 Buick Special 4 door sidemounted touring sedan
  2. I'm certain that the photo below of the 1936 Buick is recognized by CCCA as a full classic, since it is a custom coach built car. It is a nice car but in my view still does not compare to the "Brunns". This town car was done by Brewster on a 1936 Buick Roadmaster. It is currently for sale with Hyman Ltd. in the $87,000 range.

  3. For those of you have been following this thread, you may want to check out the thread I started on Dec. 31. Also mentioned in this thread by dynaflash8. His quote, "If you go up to the Buick Club thread you'll see a long thread on the Buick Brunn-bodied cars of 1940 and 1941." Some good information has started to develop in this thread on Brunn bodied Buicks. "Have you seen "The Brunn ?" Dave BCA 26773 1938 Buick Special 4 door sidemounted touring sedan
  4. Hello to all. Here is some of the info that this thread has provided on the 1941 Buick Limited Brunn Bodied Brougham Town Car. A. It was once owned by Sidney Aberman, founder of the Buick Collectors Club of America, in Pittsburgh, Pa. B. When the "The Brunn" was listed for sale for 3 or 4 months in Hemmings some 15 to 20 years ago, the first listing had a phone number from Pa. . C At some point ownership shifted to Marv Tamaroff a Buick dealer and collector from the Michigan area. It was shown at the" Eyes on Design" car show in Michigan, during 1993 and 1994. D. 1993 or 1994 is or is about the time it was listed in Hemmings. The last two ads in Hemmings, the phone number to call on "The Brunn" was in Michigan. E. In the May - June 1971 issue of Antique Automobile fellow member and Buick owner Earl Beauchamp, Jr. wrote an article with photos on the 1941 Buick Limited Brunn Bodied Brougham Town Car. F. According to Mr. Beauchamp "If the back portion (with the landau bars) goes down it was originally a dark color. If it does not, it was silver" . G. The back portion DOES NOT GO DOWN as this is a Town Car. H. I think it is safe to assume that the first owner of "The Brunn" was Colonel LeRoy Burdeau of Chicago and Palm Beach Florida . (Please see Chapter 11 in the book The Buick A Complete History) It shows "The Brunn" as a silver or gray Town Car and lists the owner as Colonel LeRoy Burdeau, and that the car was ordered in gray.The photo shows "The Brunn" without the spears on the fender skirts: common on 1941 Buicks at the time. The photo below shows "The Brunn" without the spears. (This photo was taken in 1994 at "Eyes on Design" car show in Michigan. I think it is safe to say the car was repainted. I. The book Buick A Complete History indicates that this "Brunn" was the SECOND Brunn produced. J. I feel it is safe to say the "The Brunn" has had the following owners. Colonel LeRoy Burdeau, Sidney Aberman, and Marv Tamaroff . Who else has owned the 1941 Buick Limited Brunn Town Car and who owns it now? "Have you seen the 1941 Buick Limited Brunn Town Car ?"

  5. Hello.TG57Roadmaster I have a 1941 Buick Limited catalogue as you. Your right; It's pricey but a great Buick Limited collectible. I enjoy your posts and photo uploads. Keep up the good work.

  6. Hello Allcars: You have brought in a very interesting story and history on the "Brunns" to this thread. I'm not sure but it may have been Marv Tamaroff who placed the for sale ad in Hemmings some 15 to 20 years ago. This would have been about the same time it was on display at the Eyes on Design show. I surmise. "The Brunn" is still around somewhere with a very private collector. It's my hope it "comes out" so that more of us can see and enjoy this marvelous custom Buick.

  7. Hello Dynaflash 8. If the two tone car is yours you may recall the show. It was taken in 1993 or 1994 at the "Eyes On Classic Design" car show. It was held at the Edsel Ford Estate.

  8. Hi Barney. I think the car was a 1940 Buick Limited Phaeton put up for sale by vaultcars.com If it's the same car, the photo is below. The custom work was done by Bohman & Schwartz Coach Builders. Your correct it was mild custom work. In my view it does not come close to the work performed by Brunn.

  11. My apologies to all. I have been using the wrong user name. I registered and joined the AACA back in 2008 and forgot that I registered a user name at that time. In the continuation of this thread I'll be using XP-300 instead of X-100. Below the 1940 Townmaster. Dave BCA 26773 1938 Buick Special 4 door sidemounted touring sedan

  20. Patrick and I have had business together in the past. He is a gentleman to say the least. He is a collector of all good things automotive, loves post cards from the 1930's - 1950's, depicting awesome street scenes with automobiles. His favorite car the DeSoto Airflow. Great to see his art on the web.
