The Buick car company is a subsidiary of General Motors, but it wasn’t always that way. The Buick car company was formed in 1903 by a Scottish industrialist named David Dunbar Buick. That makes Buick one of the oldest car brands in the country that is rich in history and tradition. The company has continued to reinvent itself over and over by adding models that appeal to more than the average car buyer that wants luxury in a reasonably priced vehicle. You will see for yourself when you examine these Buick car brochures.
The first car that Buick introduced to the market was a two-cylinder Model B with an overhead-valve engine. That’s right; the overhead valve engine is not a recent development. It started back in 1904. Then in 1907, Buick brought the Model D with a four-cylinder engine to market. However, in 1908 General Motors purchased the Buick Motor Company and made some changes. By 1914 every new Buick came equipped with a six-cylinder engine and earned a reputation for being the car of professionals as advertised in Buick sales brochures of their day.
In the early 1920s, a significant feature first brought to the United States by the Buick Company was all-wheel brakes on mass-produced cars. That’s right; this was a pretty big deal and one that Buick was on the map. Then in the 1930s started building eight-cylinder vehicles, which became very popular. Another first that Buick introduced to the automobile was the flashing turn signal. Unfortunately, we are constantly searching because we don’t have Buick car brochures and sales pamphlets from those early models.
In the 1940s, Buick became a household name with the popularity of the Buick Estate Wagon and the well-known Buick Roadmaster. Then in 1948, Buick again set the bar with the Dynaflow automatic transmission. Buick continued to gain popularity through the 1950s and 60s by offering unheard-of innovations in the auto industry with features like power brakes, power steering, and 12-volt electrical systems. These features don’t seem very revolutionary when you examine the Buick car brochures and literature today, but back in the day, they were huge.
Buick Car Brochures and Sales Literature
The Buick was not your ordinary car, it was a cut above, and they proved that to the industry and the consumer when they unveiled the head-turning luxury coupe known as the Riviera in the early 1960s and then the Electra 225. Then in the 1970s and 1980s, Buick started producing smaller and midsize cars to meet the demand of the American car buyer for fuel economy. Although Buick still knew how to turn heads when they once again released a luxury sport coupe/convertible, Reatta, and the Regal muscle car. I have been searching for these Buick brochures for years, but to find one to scan and offer here.
