The 1923 Buick 28-55 Touring Convertible, the ultimate in cruising, with the top down and wind in your hair. That unique sound of a vintage automobile and everyone you pass stops and points as you smile and wave back accepting their admirations. Yes, 94 years young and still turning heads. This 1923 Buick is a joy to behold, drive and own. Can you picture yourself cruising the neighborhood in this American classic? The distinctive sound, the classic look and the uga horn, which gives it, added character. Show the kid down the block what 31 inch rims look like. This is a family car. Itís meant to be driven. Load up the kids or grandchildren and cruise the neighbourhood, drive to the park for a picnic or cruise to the local Sonic for a burger.
The body is finished in burgundy paint with black fenders and a burgundy interior. The radiator cowling, bumpers, headlight bezels, door handles and assorted trim are in a chrome finish. The burgundy interior seats and carpet are in good condition. The top canvas is white in color. The wood spoke wheels are detailed with pin striping. The rear spare tire carrier holds one spare tire.
The car had a cosmetic restoration and is mostly original, and still has the original leather seats. 3 speed stick shift transmission with reverse gear. The peddles as in todayís cars consisting of clutch, brake, and accelerator. The 1923 has a combination electric starter and generator. Another innovation for Buick was the overhead valve train which is still in use today. Overall, the 1923 Buick was ahead of its time in engineering, comfort, and design. A great 94-year old, American Made, classic. The car is in good mechanical working order and in its original configuration, no non-period modifications to mechanics with original seats and interior side panels too. Yes, it has some love marks because it is a family car, well-loved and driven instead of just sitting to be admired. Our understanding from the previous owners is that this car was used as a parade car at the Indy 500 for parade laps. The í23 still has the 1961 500 Festival plate on it as well. There is nothing major to worry about from a cosmetic stand point. A good solid, straight car with another 94 years of enjoyment just waiting for you!
This is an older restoration but owned and maintained by the same family as part of their collection of many antique and classic cars for the last 25 years. This Buick looks great and runs good. This is a very usable antique car and great for touring or family outings.
