1926 Buick Master Six news, pictures, specifications, and information
Buick was fighting hard to provide competitive and stylish vehicles that were better than the competition. They updated their vehicles during a five-year cycle that began in 1924. Mechanical improvements were also continual, with the four-cylinder engine being abandoned in 1925 in favor of a larger six-cylinder unit.

For 1926, Buick updated the styling for the Standard and Master Six model line-up by adorning them with aluminum hubcaps and gas caps. The radiator shell was slightly redesigned, now appearing smoother.

The Master Six included scuff plates, cigarette lighter, heater, clock, smoking cases, shock absorbers and a vanity case. The Standard line sat atop of 114.5 inch wheelbase while the Master Six rode on either a 120-inch or 128-inch wheelbase. The cars came in a variety of body styles including sedan, roadster, coupe, touring, brougham, and country club coupe. The Standard and Master Six could be purchased with 2 or 4 doors and could accommodate two to seven passengers, depending on the body style.

Featured is a Master Six Roadster with an additional rumble seat. There is a period golf bag door and dual rear mounted spare tires. There is a dimmer switch mounted on the steering wheel which made driving at night more civilized. The 274 cubic-inch inline six-cylinder engine provided 75 horsepower. Power was sent to the rear wheels through a three-speed sliding gear transmission. Stopping power was courteous of four-wheel mechanical drum brakes.

During the 1926 model year, Buick set a sales record with 266,753 units being sold. It would take Buick another 14 years to match this record.
