ODOMETER
1908 Buick Model F Touring

22 hp, 159 cu. in. inline two-cylinder engine, two-speed manual transmission with a cone clutch and chain drive, and two-wheel mechanical brakes. Wheelbase: 92 in. David Dunbar Buick was a brilliant engineer who made his fortune manufacturing bathtubs. Unfortunately, Buick then spent his fortune developing a motor car, as well as one of the first patents for an overhead-valve engine. When Durant took over in 1904, only 37 cars had been built. By 1906, he had sold more than 200 cars; by the next year, it was up to 4,641, and in 1908, it was 8,820. By 1909, sales rose to 14,606 cars, doubling again in 1910. Only Henry Ford sold more cars. The 1908 models were introduced in November 1907. Buick extensively restyled the Model F with a longer wheelbase and re-shaped hood, fenders, and grille form. All were painted wine red with red wheels. A gas-powered headlight, as on this car, was optional. Until recently, this true “barn find” and remarkable piece of history has been with the same family since 1938. It was purchased by John G. Talcott Jr. for $50 after it broke down in a local parade. The car was put in storage and has not been operational since 1940, and it continues to bear its 1940 registration on the driver’s side windshield. While not running, it is largely complete. The top and button-tufted leather interior, while tattered, are in place and functional. It is believed that it was repainted sometime prior to being placed in long-term storage. The consigner has aptly described it as “a wonderful old thing.”

FACT

Because, well, why not...?

Until the 1980s, it was illegal for a woman to drive a car down Main Street in Waynesboro, Virginia, unless her husband was walking in front of the car waving a red flag.
