Buick Model 19 Five-Passenger Touring

Buick was not only the carrot that drew Billy Durant into the automobile industry; it was the very foundation upon which he built General Motors in 1908. By 1910, the Buick product line was greatly expanded with the introduction of the Models 7 and 41, as well as the Model 19 touring car, a slightly longer development of the old Model D. With a 105-inch wheelbase, the Model 19 featured unique bodywork that heightened the car’s pleasing overall proportions.

This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in March of 2009 at the The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, Florida and in March of 2012 at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, Florida.

28.9hp, 255 cu. in. four-cylinder overhead valve engine, with the cylinder block cast in pairs, three-speed selective gear transmission, solid front and rear axles with semi-elliptic leaf springs, two-wheel hydraulic brakes. Wheelbase: 105".
