The original Buicks were powered by two-cylinder engines with overhead valves, the "valve-in-head" engines that would characterize Buicks through the marque's long history. The 2-cylinders were joined by a four in 1907 but continued to be the core of Buick's model lineup, at the time one of America's best-selling offerings. This 1910 Buick Model F is a prime example of the quality and attractive design of the earliest Buicks. Finished in maroon with black fenders and accented with a gold coachline, it is upholstered in black leather and protected with a black leatherette top. A 1986 AACA Senior National First Prize winning restoration, it also boasts a VMCCA Award of Excellence, both indicative of the high quality of its presentation. It is loaded with brass accessories including a Stewart speedometer, Phinney-Walker rim-wind clock, Gray and Davis acetylene headlights, Rubes bulb horn, acetylene generator, steering column, kerosene cowl lamps and taillight, windshield frame and any number of other accessories. A set of white rubber tires are mounted on red painted wood spoke wheels. Properly restored nearly a quarter century ago, it has the patina which only decades of careful use and sympathetic care can instill and is still ready to be driven on brass and gas tours and shown with pride at the end of the day.
