Sporty Buick roadster
AACA National First award winner
Well appointed and conserved

Although Buick reintroduced a four-cylinder car for 1922, the mainstay continued to be the six-cylinder model, available in ten body styles. The higher radiators and hoods of 1921 were retained, as was the 60 bhp, 242-cubic-inch overhead-valve engine. Brakes continued to be two two-wheel mechanicals, operating on the rear wheels.

This Buick Six 22 is the Style 44 three-passenger roadster body, of which 7,666 were built. Painted olive green with black fenders, it presents very nicely and has a delicate white pinstripe around the cockpit and a black leatherette top. The seat is upholstered in black pleated leather. The radiator has a Buick script MotoMeter mounted in a dog-bone cap. It has been fitted with a tubular accessory bumper, which has parking lights at its outer ends, and twin taillights within the perimeter of the rear-mounted spare tire.

The engine, Buick’s famed valve-in-head design, is very tidy and correctly appointed, including the Stewart vacuum fuel system, to which a modern inline fuel filter has been added for reliability and ease of service. A correct Klaxon 12A horn and period oil can are mounted on the firewall. Gehrig 33 × 4 blackwall tires are mounted on varnished wood-spoke artillery wheels.

Purchased in 1995 from Bobbie Phillips of London, Kentucky, it was the recipient of an AACA National First award in 1965. A windshield sticker shows that it participated in a Glidden Tour in 1969. Very well maintained and preserved, it is sure to be enjoyed by its next owner.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf19.
