THE MASTER SIX

The company introduced its first six-cylinder car in 1914 and for a period in the 1920s the range would consist entirely of sixes. A detachable cylinder head, strengthened chassis and axles, and four-wheel brakes were new introductions on the six-cylinder line for 1924, the last year of Buick's base-model four. Replacing the latter for 1925, the Standard Six boasted a new, overhead-valve engine displacing 191cu in and producing 50bhp, while the larger Master Six came with a 255cu in, 70bhp unit. The duo were restyled for 1926 and given larger engines of 207 and 274cu in respectively and continued almost unaltered throughout 1927. For this season, the cars were visibly distinguishable by their slightly rounded radiator edges and on Fisher bodies such as this car, a dual swage molding.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Master Six Roadster was the top-of-the-line offering for the year and is understood to have been sold new to a fellow from ritzy Oyster Bay—just across the Long Island Sound from Greenwich. No doubt the perfect car for such a nice area, the top down motoring in the summer would only be complemented by the availability of a golf door for easy access to the sticks when heading to the links and a factory rumble seat when additional friends and family needed transport.

The recipient to careful maintenance but believed to never have been fully apart for restoration, it is finished in Signal Yellow and Green accented by Signal Red striping—purported to be its factory original livery. The tan Haartz top was retrimmed a few years ago along with the matching rear mounted spare tire covers. The interior shows well and is trimmed in burgundy leather. The seats appear to have been retrimmed but the dash and door panels are possibly well kept originals. Finished at the end of the Nickel Era, the polished nickel fixtures, headlights, and radiator surround show well.

A fine example of a quality, sporting roadster from the Roaring Twenties, this Buick is unquestionably a fine addition to just about any collection and a wonderful value given its stylish good looks and hearty six-cylinder power.
