Regarding This Vehicle

1912 Buick Touring For Sale

1912 proved to be a record year for the Buick, having built and sold nearly 20,000 automobiles. This was nearly 7,000 more than the 1911 output and placed Buick second in US sales, behind Henry Ford’s famous Model T. For the 1912 model year, Buick offered six models with different sized engines, wheelbases and body styles. The most popular of these was the Model 29. The Model 29 was offered as a touring car. It was powered by the 201 cubic inch, four-cylinder engine. Like all Buicks, the Model 29, featured the famous “Valve In Head” design, which was Buick’s own term for an overhead valve engine. The robust engine was coupled to a three-speed, sliding gear transmission, which was mounted on the 108” wheelbase chassis. Approximately 6,000 Model 29 touring cars were sold in 1912 with a base price of 1,180.00. Call us today with inquiries about this 1912 Buick Touring.

We are proud to offer this very original and well cared for 1912 Buick Model 29 touring car. This car is being offered for the first time in many years, having recently been removed from a prominent New England collection of brass era cars.

This 1912 Buick Touring is an older cosmetic restoration of a very correct and authentic car. Today, the restoration shows some cosmetic signs of wear, but the car is in very good to excellent overall condition.

The body and fenders are all original. Careful examination shows the wood inner structure to be mostly original and extremely solid. The metal overlaying body panels are extremely well preserved and straight. The doors hang on the body well and open and close with proper fit and alignment. The body is really solid and tight. The four fenders are extremely straight and are just as smooth underneath as they are on the top. The hood and radiator are also in very nice, original condition.

The exterior paint shows some overall signs of wear from years of enjoyment but is very clean and presentable. It has the “look and feels” that today’s collectors of brass era cars appreciate. The car displays well but it not too nice to use and enjoy.

The black, diamond tufted interior is in similar condition. It is clean and in very good condition, but certainly has a nice mellow look to it that matches the character of the rest of the car. The car retains its original folding top assembly, which has just been recovered with a new, black, Stay-fast canvas covering.

1912 Buick Touring Under The Hood

Under the hood, this car retains its original engine, clearly stamped with the serial number of 3741. The engine is correct to this vehicle and is fitted with a Bosch magneto ignition system. The chassis is complete and correct. The areas that normally exhibit wear on brass-era cars such as the steering components, spring bushings, brake linkages, etc are nice and tight on this 105-year-old Buick. The 27” wood artillery wheels are in very good condition and are fitted with oversize,  36”x 4 ½” Firestone “NON SKID” tires.

This car is equipped with all of its period trim to include a pair of brass trimmed headlights with the appropriate Prest-o-lite acetylene tank, a matching pair of brass trimmed side lamps, a brass bulb horn, a folding, brass windshield and four Buick-script hubcaps.

This is a very correct and authentic Buick. Unlike many brass era cars, this car has always been a good car and is not assembled from parts or recreated from remains. Early Buicks such as this example are extremely popular with collectors of brass era cars as they have a reputation for being reliable and easy to use tour cars. This 1912 Buick Model 29 touring car will be a welcomed car at Horseless Carriage Club of America and other early car tours. It will also proudly display itself within the walls of any car collection or will be admired at the next car show.
