Buick Six Two-Door Sedan
For 1929, mechanical specifications and options were standardized across all lines. All models now had fuel pumps, Marvel carburetors and Delco-Remy ignition, and all cars were available in the full range of colors. Closed models now had slanting non-glare windshields, dual electric wipers, adjustable front seats and side cowl ventilators.
Styling was all new and somewhat controversial. Below the beltline, body contours bulged outward, resulting in what many called a “pregnant look.” In a year when the automotive market was still expanding, to a record 4.4 million cars, Buick’s sales faltered, and the marque slipped from third place in the industry to fourth.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in October of 2010 at the Hershey Lodge, Hershey, Pennsylvania.
94 bhp, 239.1 cu. in. ohv inline six-cylinder engine, three-speed manual transmission, solid front axle and live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel mechanical drum brakes. Wheelbase: 116".
