The right-hand drive 1919 Buick Six (CY 4210) was first owned by Swansea textile importer John Hugh Evans. It was purchased later that year by Aberaeron-based timber merchant Mr D Floyd who installed it in his works where it was used to power a circular saw.
The Buick's next owner, a Mr Bliss, had intended to restore the car but instead it was abandoned for around 22 years in a field, where it was discovered and purchased by its next custodian.
The car underwent major restoration between 1999 and 2004 which included a thorough engine overhaul, chassis, brake and suspension refurbishment, rewired electrics and the installation of a new body made to the original pattern plus re-upholstered interior.
A fine example of one of America's most capable large touring cars of the early vintage era, the Buick Six is offered with restoration invoices, current MOT/tax and Swansea V5 document.
Its other notable features include brass Rotax headlamps and matching sidelights, cast-aluminium number plates, double-duck hood in black, Houk wire wheels and a 6-volt electric fuel pump.
