Buick, with Walter Marr's direction, built the sporty Model 10 in 1909. Buick built 8,149 Model 10s out of the 30,000 Buicks built that year. The Model 10 designation had continued into 1909 built the appearance changed through the use of a 92-inch wheelbase. The 4-cylinder engine produces 22.5-horsepower with a displacement of 165 cubic-inches.

The car sold stripped for $900 while the loaded version sold for $1050, which included a surrey seat. The engine followed Buick's style of casting the cylinders in pairs which could not be removed. Adjusting the valves did not require an entire engine overhaul as they were located in their own cages. The 1909 Model 10 earned its nickname, 'The White Flash.'

This model Buick, introduced in 1908, was the most popular in 1908, 1909 and 1910 outselling Cadillac and Ford. The four-cylinder engine designed by the famous engineer Walter L. Marr was simple, efficient and trouble-free. The car was produced in two styles, roadster (two or three passenger) and touring four passenger. Thousands were sold and all were painted 'Buick White' thus the tag 'White Streak' was put on them because of their many hill climb victories.

This vehicle was restored by Keith Kruse in 1994 and has been in many 'brass' tours. The engine is a 2-cylinder opposed unit that is located under the car. The Gas tank is under the hood. Brake and high gear levers are outside the cab; it has tilt steering column. The body, chassis and engine are original to the car.
The Buick Motor Company was founded by David Buick in 1903 who quickly found himself in financial problems. William Crapo Durant gained control of the company which was beneficial for the company, as sales, production, and profit greatly increased. In 1908, Buick became a founder member of the General Motors Corporation. This was the same year the Model 10 Buick was introduced. It carried a price tag of $900 which included Buick Gray paint scheme, oil side and tail-lights, acetylene headlights, and bulb horn as standard. The top was optional and cost an additional fee. In total, over 4000 examples were produced in its first year, providing Buick and General Motors with financial prosperity.

In 1909 Buick extended the chassis length to 92 inches. The number of bodystyles and sale also increased, reaching 8,100 units produced. By 1910, Buick was offering the Model 10 in 13 different body styles. The side-mounted spare and a windshield remained as optional equipment.

Production would last until 1910 with a total of 23,000 units being produced.
