Just enquiring from the experts out here in the Buick forum how common are the 1919 H44 Roadsters. Did Buick manufacture more than one style of roadster in 1919? Were the 6 cylinder Buicks a reliable and well built vehicle? Thanks for your comments.

I think their survival rate speaks to that. There are a surprisingly large number of surviving Buicks from the teens and early 20s. They were both well made and durable and while I am sure they have their quirks, its hard to imagine that so many would have lasted were then not both well made and appreciated as such.

There were 19,000  1920  K44 manufactured,  which are the same as the H44.  So you tend to see more K44 coming up for sale. 1919  was the first year where there were valve covers and push rod covers  which kept the engine cleaner.   The cage valve six cylinder engines are a very reliable and robust engine,  with the head and block being cast as one unit you never have to worry about replacing head gaskets or torquing down the head.  Just ensure the rocker gear is regularly oiled
