Unknown Buick maybe pre 1920s?

Recommended Posts

Engine is 1918 or earlier; given the exposed push rods and rocker arms. I'm not sure when they stopped casting the four-cylinder engine in pairs of two cylinders + two cylinders. Someone else will have to answer that.

I am not sure about the car. It can be seen on American Pickers S15 E8, Planes, Frames and Automobiles. They don't talk about the car though. I have a couple of screenshots of it. image.thumb.png.4e10d94b2380ae033bd9d2132f35a767.png61884964_674452476320689_140522624026411008_n.png?_nc_cat=103&_nc_eui2=AeEWpVJS300pTTZU4cvNV26i1r3Ci0Z3qaHrZqZ2WlrT5cdYkgYe_U8HcCZG2kgGpE3memIktcNsLrvTz8ABocoN59TMj3tjPP64BpRTDqA5hw&_nc_oc=AQn4dD_LgCzvMYn9y9inbcpX8PZcgaNleTsGUUU2V5b-GnV-ihUT3mZh7CXdwYGtZyk&_nc_ht=scontent-ort2-2.xx&oh=721480bf4c9683e6ba1615ecd40e9a65&oe=5D52ED98

The Facebook link shows an engine number. Or is that the frame number?

1915 was the last year for having an engine cast in pairs. It is not 1915. If memory serves me correctly Buick built only the 6 Cylinder around 16 and 17 and then started building a lighter 4 again around 1918 for several years. Those seats don't belong on it. Dandy Dave!

It made me think of something that had been repurposed. Maybe keeping the frame and engine and making a car to haul around visitors or dignitaries that would not obstruct their view.

Must be for dignitaries. A farmer would have put in a division window to keep the sheep from licking the back of his neck.
