Entered from a private collection
Rumoured to have been used in the Brad Pitt film 'Legends of the Fall'
A rare and potent Edwardian Tourer
The first model series to be introduced after the Flint, Michigan-based company had become part of General Motors, the Buick Four was in production from 1908-1918. An advanced design, its in-line four-cylinder powerplant featured overhead valve gear and was allied to three-speed manual transmission. Available in Phaeton, Roadster and Touring guise, the Buick was underpinned by a sturdy ladder frame chassis equipped with all-round leaf-sprung suspension (semi-elliptic front / three-quarter elliptic rear) and rear wheel brakes. Made from high quality materials, the Four proved a great sales success. Debuting in 1915, the Model C-37 was a five-seater Touring car propelled by a 3. 6 litre engine (rated at 37bhp). Featuring a ‘Streamline Body’ and electric lighting set, it was priced at $1, 235 and achieved some 12, 450 sales. Though, today survivors are comparatively few and far between.

Finished in Black with Maroon upholstery, this particular example is rumoured to have appeared in the Brad Pitt film ‘Legends of the Fall’ or at least that is what the vendor was told when he bought it (sadly, there is nothing on file to substantiate the claim). Seemingly very original, the Buick still carries its correct specification Marvel carburettor, Jacox steering box and Delco starting, lighting and ignition system. Not run for some time, the Model C37 will require recommissioning / servicing prior to use. Entering the current ownership in 2016, this handsome and powerful Edwardian Touring car is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document.
