David Buick's company was one of America's most successful automobile companies in 1907, effectively doubling its sales each year from 1906 through 1908. Buick was so successful that in late 1908 it became the basis of Billy Durant's General Motors. The 22 horsepower two-cylinder Model F Touring car is an example of Buick's earliest model and the foundation of the company's success. This 1907 Buick Model F is an older restoration probably done two decades or so ago and was extensively but very carefully toured subsequently. Painted Maroon with Black fenders and Cream chassis and wheels, its wheels mount white Firestone tires, giving it a gorgeous, sparkling look when combined with the lavish brass trim and accessories including acetylene generator, Gray & Davis lights and bulb horn. It has a wicker basket at the back and the weather equipment includes side curtains for all-weather utility. An important marque and model, the quality of its restoration is apparent in its longevity. It looks great and is very handsome and rare.
