<SOLD> For Sale: 1929 Model 27 sedan


Recommended Posts

Car has been sold


Runs and drives well.  Not a show car but a very nice driver.  Older restoration (80's?).  Interior nice, paint is OK.  Speedometer and gas gauge need repair, but parts to fix both are included.  Recent additions & improvements (by me) include new oil filter cannister (from Bob's); crank-up front windshield restored; windshield wiper repaired; rear seat footrest added; electrical wiring updated with period-correct wire from Rhode Island Wire; new ammeter; new belt, hoses, spark plugs, distributor cap, coil and plug wires; heat riser  re-sleeved and heat riser passages fully blocked off; upgraded to rebuilt 1928 Standard Marvel carburetor from Tony Bult (1928 has brass bowl which avoids problems with brittle 1929 pot metal bowl); rebuilt mechanical fuel pump installed; radiator removed, flushed out, & reinstalled; Buick radiator badge added; gaskets replaced on manifolds, carburetor, exhaust tee & heat riser;  fan hub upgraded to the newer oil-less design from Tony Bult.  This car also had an aftermarket electric fuel pump installed when I bought it 7 years ago.  I replumbed and rewired it to work off a rocker switch when desired, but under normal conditions it is bypassed by a parallel fuel line and is not used. 


Offering for sale at $6800 for car w/o trunk or $7500 for car with trunk.  I built the trunk based on plans from a 1929 magazine article describing how to build your own trunk to fit a model A (or any other car).  Trunk deck is my own design.  Will remove deck & trunk if not wanted, and put back to original condition with spare tire carrier.


Please PM or email with questions.  Car is located in NW suburb of Minneapolis, MN.


Thanks for looking.

While I am no expert on 20s Buick authenticity I say "who cares!" at your asking price!  Thank you brother not asking $15,000 and taking offers.  My wish would be that a 32 year old buys this for fun, maintains it with his kids and shows it and drives it around. $7500 is more than fair and that trunk and deck STAYS!  Beautiful work.
