Hey, are there any Marquette owners out there??????????????

I'm the new Editor of the Buick Club's Bugle magazine, and I am planning to do a feature article on the rare Buick-built Marquette, which was introduced in mid-1929 and discontinued after the 1930 model year. If anyone has one of these cars, or information/materials about them, I would like to borrow your photos or materials, for this article. It is an opportunity for your car to be on the cover of the Bugle, or at least within the article. I'm planning this for one of the summer months, so there is time, but not that much, given printing lead times. I think there is a Marquette Registry somewhere. Any help or leads appreciated.

I would check the Marquette Registry. I also looked up the Marquettes owned by club members when I was looking at Marquettes a couple years back and I remember a touring a collector owned in the midwest (Ohio/Indiana?) that was an export right hand drive model. He was interested in selling and had owned it several years. That one has to be rare.

Hi

Just wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know that I keep the Marquette Owners Registry for Enthusiasts and that I would be more than happy to assist in anyway with your article. While keeping the registry for many years I have many photographs, ad copy and information to share including the information that is on my site. Please let me know I can be of some help!

Thanks to Don Holton, Mike Balogh, and many others who contributed photos, information, and copies of literature for this article, which is now done. It will be the feature article of the July issue of the Buick Bugle, and I think it turned out pretty well (hope you all agree), with numerous color photos of the cars and a lot of historic background. The July issue is going to press in about two weeks.

1 of 2397. Very, very rare model. Most were 2 or 4 door sedans. Worth a sound restoration and bidding is underway.
