Is this a late 20's buick?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Is this a 1927 or 1928 buick?

Master Six or what type?

 

95% sure that is a 1928 New Brunswick license plate.

 

The bumper has 3 sections, which I think is a big key to what year or type it is?

 

Thank you for any help!

The bumper is of the type usually seen on 1929 Buicks but I think the car is a 1928 Oakland, even though the radiator is indistinct.

If you are sure it`s a Buick, it`s a 1928 in that case ,just becuse of the head lights shape.

Thank you for the extra info!

 

I am not positive it is a buick. A 2 door 1930s one was identified in another photo that the same person may have owned, I was only guesssing he may have traded in at the same dealer.

I don't know as much as the Buick masters but that 3 bar bumper is a Buick feature. I can't find any Oakland with one. Here's a 27 Buick.

Yes this car probably is a 1928 Buick.  I was confused by the style of visor, which Oakland and Pontiac used in 1927-8 but I think Buick also used it in 1928 only. I am not sure when Buick began to supply bumpers as a factory option but that three bar item seems to be mostly on 1929s and a few 1928s. Some 1929 cars have a two bar bumper. The bumper on the 1927 car above is different (maybe an accessory item?) to the three bar bumper on 1928-9 models which have a distinct curve in the middle
