1929 Buick Series 121 Convertible
Chassis no. 2205448
From inception in 1903, Buick’s reputation of an automotive manufacturer of the highest quality grew quickly. By 1908, production numbers exceeded that of Cadillac and Ford. As quality and technology improved, so did their market share. Through the rocky financial landscape of the 1920s, the company’s strong reputation and financial position was a major factor in pulling General Motors, their parent company, through the period.

The car's reliability was world famous. High profile first expeditions through Afghanistan, trophy winning endurance and reliability runs through Russia, and rallies through Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia ensured the manufacturers future.

By 1929, the company was producing numerous body styles on three chassis lengths. The car offered here is their mid-sized model, and with smart, well-balanced lines, the Series 121 Convertible is outstanding for its racy appearance and performance. Built on the 121inch wheelbase chassis, the car was powered by Buick’s six cylinder engine, producing a sporty 31SAE horsepower. It has side cowl ventilators, full ventilating windshield, and a fully trimmed rear deck with a comfortable seat. This car, offered in very good condition throughout, has the spare tire side carrier, trunk rack with trunk options and sports whitewall tires on its painted wooden spoke wheels.
