1917 Buick D-4-35

1917 Buick D-4-35 - Details

This well-preserved and original early Buick was owned and restored by the same owner for 34 years, and it was his only antique car. It has been in the Cincinnati area most of its life and was purchased at the Glenmoor Gathering auction in 2010. The current restoration of this car began in 1969, with further major work done between 1977 and 1979.
Once acquired, a new black top was added. On the passenger side running board is a luggage rack to hold a suitcase in place while traveling. The driver side running board has a unique tool box that is heavy enough to stand on when entering the car.

Extra-cost options include a unique spot light and front and rear bumpers. The jack is stored under the rear seat and the 6-volt battery is under the driver’s seat. Wooden spoke wheels are of spit-rim design and have been meticulously restored. Black interior appears to be restored as original. The 35 HP, 4 cylinder engine runs perfectly. An oil can is mounted on the firewall, so that the open-top mechanism of engine can be lubricated before and after use. This is oldest vehicle in our collection.
