The last of the four-cylinder Buicks disappeared after 1924. For 1925, both the Standard and Master lines had six-cylinder power. The 'six' featured Buick's trademark 'valve-in-head' overhead valve design, the legacy of famed Buick engineer Walter L. Marr.
Buick offered a wide model range and built an enviable reputation as a maker of stylish and reliable cars fitted with advanced engineering. They offered a number of attractive open and closed body styles clothed in a plethora of distinctive color combinations.
The Model 25-54 3-Passenger Sport Coupe was priced at $1,785 with 1,917 examples produced. They had a relatively long 128 inch wheelbase and came with many distinctive standard features including a windshield-mounted sun visor, a golf-bag door, a rumble seat, dual whitewall spare tires mounted at the rear, step plates and a Moto-Meter to monitor engine coolant temperatures.
This Model 25-54 Sport Roadster wears an older restoration. It was acquired by the current owner in the Denver, Colorado area. Prior to that, it was displayed within a showroom for approximately 4 decades. The car is powered by an overhead valve six-cylinder engine that displaces 255 cubic-inches and offers 70 horsepower. There is a three-speed sliding gear manual transmission with four-wheel mechanical drum brakes.
In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the RM Auction's Amelia Island sale. It was estimated to sell for $45,000 - $55,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $52,250 inclusive of buyer's premium.
