1926  Buick Sedan

Entry number 2 John  and  Annette Mc Knight 

Buick in its quest to build world class automobiles started a 5-years development cycle in 1924, for continuous improvement of its vehicles. Mechanical improvements were also continual, with the four-cylinder engine being abandoned in 1925 in favor of a larger six-cylinder unit.

The 1926 line up saw considerable improvements in production quality. Buick updated the styling for its 1926 Buick Sedan by adorning them with aluminum hubcaps and gas caps. The radiator shell was slightly redesigned, now appearing smoother.

Some of the technical specifications associated to the 1926 Buick Sedan include:

Engine: The standard version was equipped with a 6-cylinder 60 BHP powerhouse capable of        2800   RPM while the Master six had a 6-cylinder, 4.5 L, 4490.9 cc., 77 BHP engine capable of        delivering a maximum of 2800 RPM. 

2 Piston: Cast iron pistons were used which had a displacement of 207.1" in the Standard version     and 274.2" in the Master six version.

3 Wheels: Wooden spoke wheels with detachable rims.

4 Transmission: Selective Sliding and Multiple disc clutch.
