Legend of Buick - Part 1 (1998)

Here's a great video produced in 1998 by General Motors Communications Support Group for Buick Communications. Written and directed by author/biographer Lawrence R. Gustin (one of the very few writers active today who extensively interviewed people close to the founder of General Motors, William Durant, and who also has a very rich background in researching and presenting Buick history), this video presents a detailed walk through the history of Buick from its early roots with David Dunbar Buick, all the way through to the late 90s. Narrated by Bill Harris, you'll enjoy a wide collection of Buick memorabilia including photos, newspaper articles, and film clips. (Video is presented in two parts.)

1955 BUICK CENTURY RIVIERA 2-DR. HARDTOP -- " HOTTEST BUICK IN HISTORY"
That's what the advertisers stated, that this year's issues of Buick were the hottest in Buick history. One glance at this beauty and you can readily agree. This red and white hardtop looks very hot. There were 80,338 of these Century hardtops sold this year whereas the top line Roadmaster Riviera hardtop sold 28,071 units. Starting in the early fifties, hardtop styling was introduced and it took off from there with every make mimicing the hardtop craze. And one can see why. There is something about the hardtop styling that states power and sportiness and sexiness. This example here would cost $2,600 new and was powered only with a V8, 322 cid with 236 bhp. There's your power element. This year all GM makes had wraparound windshields. And Buick offered the improved Dynaflow automatic transmission. Buick came in 3rd place in car sales behind Chevy and Ford and in front of Plymouth the low priced make. So all of the Buick levels: Special, Super, Century and Roadmaster together sold close to 800,000 cars. Looking at this Century hardtop it's not hard to understand why. Thanks very much for viewing this superb 1955 Buick Century Riviera hardtop coupe.

1926 DURANT STAR -- A CAR TO COMPETE AGAINST GM
The Durant was a make of automobile assembled by Durant Motors Corporation of New York City, New York from 1921 to 1926 and again from 1928 to 1932. Durant Motors was founded by William "Billy" Durant after he was terminated as the head of General Motors. Billy Durant's intent was to build an automotive empire that could one day challenge General Motors. The Durant automobile is considered to be an example of an "assembled" automobile because so many of its components were obtained from outside suppliers. From 1921 to 1926 the vehicle was powered by a four cylinder Continental engine. The vehicle was directed at the Oakland automobile price point. Production of the vehicle was suspended for the 1926 and 1927 model years. When the Durant was reintroduced, the car was redesigned and powered by a six cylinder Continental engine; some of the early vehicles were marketed as the "Durant-Star". Bodies for the vehicle were supplied by Budd Company. In 1930, some Durants were built with all steel bodies, also supplied by Budd. Durant Motors was found insolvent and automobile production ended early in 1932. So, Durant who created General Motors, was terminated from GM, started once again an automobile empire that was hoped to compete against his earlier creation, General Motors. By the way, Durant did get back control of General Motors. Thanks very much for viewing this rare 1926 Durant Star.

1910 Overland touring car
This is one big car...of the brass era! Linked to Willys, probably made in Toledo Ohio. You can imagine there was little protection from the elements in cars like this..and indeed, closed cars were sought after because they provided the protection of rollup windows, popular in the 20's. Notice the brass gearshift...pretty advanced for its day!
