1937 BUICK REDFERN

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have recently purchased a fantastic English bodied 1937 redfern buick coachbuilt by the maltby works sandgate Kent on a 37 right hand drive mclaughlin series 40 CHASSIS. I have had many early buicks over the years and I am definitely hooked on them.(even if it it a bit tough sometimes keeping them on the road here in the u.k) The car is pretty well known as had been previously owned by Stewart who was a member of the forum. And I was lucky enough to purchase the car a few months ago.

 

I'm currently going over the car to insure she is as good as I can get her. Equipped with her original functioning full power hood (electric driven hydraulic) she is a very impressive motor and by far the nicest buick I have owned. The headlights and spotlights are original and were fitted to suit uk taste at the time.

 

IF there is anyone who knows about a similar sister car built 1937 sold a good few years ago at auction (was black) it would be great to contact the owner. Any info on buick maltby cars would be appreciated.

 

My car was the 37 Paris motor show car and has had an interesting life.

 

Regards

 

Chris (staffordshire England)

Great looking car. 😊

 

There have been other mid-late 1930's Buick with coachbuilt bodies here on aaca.org, but most(all?) have been 2 door drop heads (Maltby, Cartlon, Lancefeild).

And some from Eu (Van den Plas & others)
