Sounds like a model K-44 roadster. Production total was 19,000

Come on along and join the BCA. (Buick Club of America) We are on this site just down the page.

Nice car. :) There is one at the Old Rhinebeck Aero Drome that I have helped to keep running for the air show from time to time. Dandy Dave!

Congratulations, the cage valve Buick 6's are great cars. The brakes are a little { OK a lot} on the feeble side for modern traffic, but otherwise they are very well engineered. The roadsters were made in reasonable numbers but are far outnumbered today by the Model 45 sport tourings. Seats for a roadster will be a fairly hard item to source. Even the touring seats can be quite dificult to find. They are fairly flimsy in construction, and don't survive well. On the plus side they are reasonably easy to remake provided you have a sample to work from. In addition to the BCA there is a first class owners group for these cars. Dean Tryon works tirelessly to publish a newsletter and information clearinghouse. It is called the 1916/17 Buick owners group but it caters to all of the cage valve 6's. {1916- 1923} Hope this helps
