Default 1925 Buick Standard Six Four Passenger Coupe

I dropped in on a local cruise night with our '40 Packard and was approached by a former work mate,who asked if I was interested in a 1918 Oldsmobile V8 touring.Restoration had been started but it needed work.I said "no" but got the contact info,as a friend has a 1920 Olds V8.On phoning the number given,turns out there are 3 cars for sale to settle an estate,the Olds,a 1925 Buick coupe,and a 1928 Dodge sedan.
We went to see them.My friend is negotiating on the Olds.The Buick and Dodge are restored,but the Buick hasn't run in 25 years.I threw out an offer on the '25 Buick and it was accepted ! Seems it was specially built for a doctor.It is an "opera" or 'victoria" style and the doctor didn't want the front folding passenger seat (not sure why).It's a sweet little car and should only need the fuel system flushed to get it running.It has a 50HP,191 cu.in.OHV six cylinder engine.

Having grown up in the Flint, MI area, I have always admired those old Buicks! Congratulations!

Oh my god...
Another one!
These fabulous old cars and trucks just keep showing up, I love it!
Get it running and drive it around. You do not need to go too far, just get it and yourself out there.
Everyone is going to love this great old car everywhere you go.
Thank you for posting!
Got any detail shots? Would love a peak up under the old girls skirt

I haven't got it home yet.Had to tell my investment broker I was "diversifying my portfolio" again.I did snap a photo of the engine though while looking it over.

Snapped a shot of the dash also.The lever on the far left is the control for the choke heater.It diverts warm exhaust air back to the carb for cold weather starts.This was one of the first cars to have a steering column lock too.Odometer milage shows 27000,which could well be correct.

Looks like a reverse rotation fan, is it driven from the Camshaft?

The fan belt is off the pulleys,making it look that way,I think.The car is still about 80 miles away so I can't run out and check !

Got the Buick home today.Had to let most of the air out of the rear tires and have a guy stand on the back of the car to get it in (and out) of the trailer.The old girl's 75 inches tall.With a fresh battery,it turns over freely and even the klaxon horn and lights work.It should fire up after we clean out the fuel system.Not bad after sitting 25 years.

Had a 1927 GMC truck with the same engine and I think the fan pulley was on the camshaft . Good engine for there time. Bill H.
