1929 Buick Roadster

Buick's Silver Anniversary Sport Roadster one of only 6,195 ever made. This was a crowning jewel of Buick embracing the fashion salons of Europe.... Beautiful workmanship! VIN 2422514

The 1929 Buick was the Silver Anniversary Buick and according to the Standard Catalog of American Cars was the first completely styled by Harley Earl's newly formed General Motors Art & Color Department. The unique design of the rear window is an example of Harley Earl's influence. Apparently, GM took color selection very seriously. A newspaper article from 1929 stated that, "When a selection is made it is the result of a careful research that embraces the fashion salons of Europe." This article appeared on October 19th 1929, just days before the stock market crash that contributed to the Great Depression. This 1929 Buick was last of the era that focus on the "fashion salons of Europe."

Buick celebrated its 25th year of automotive production in 1929 Buick's built during the model year were affectionately known as the "Silver Anniversary" cars. Design elements included flowing fenders, a sturdy bumper of two or three bars, wooden spoke wheels with detachable rims, and a Buick nameplate placed on the center of the radiator. A new dual electric windshield wiper feature and side cowl ventilators. A mechanical fuel pump replaced the previous vacuum tank. The new 121 bodies rested on new chassis with the frame comprised of thicker steel and deeper cross-sections. In the front were semi-elliptical leaf springs while the rear used a Cantilever setup. Lovejoy shock absorbers provided support and the engines now used steel-backed main bearings for the first time.

The 121 model has a 309.6 CID (5.1L) inline-6 with overhead valves, four main bearings, mechanical valve lifters, and a Marvel three-jet updraft carburetor. All engines were backed by a three-speed sliding gear transmission and braking was handled by mechanical external contracting brakes on all four wheels. Added turn signals and brake lights have been added for modern day driving. The front and rear bumpers, the front and rear fenders, all have the scalloped line design.
