1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He was the last one to hear it run until today. It has not been started since 1961. The motor was stuck so we dissembled it, replaced the rings, rebuilt the top end, installed a new gas tank and lines, replaced the bakelite timing gear, rebuilt the carb, new Exhaust, brakes, tires, battery and wiring harness since the mice had chewed up the original. We pushed it out of the garage, primed the fuel system and it fired right up as you see here. By the way, I could not see a thing hardly through the camera lens due to the bright sunlight.
Starting 850 H.P. 8 cyl, 4 carbs, 32 spark plugs, gasoline engine
This is the first start up after setting a year. Sterling gasoline inline 8 cyclinder, 32 spark plugs, 2 distributors, 4 carbs and 850 H.P. remember this is a gasoline engine. Pumped water in Danville Ill. For more info google "83 footer".
