1905 Buick Model C news, pictures, specifications, and information
Tourer
Chassis Num: 3044
 
There were 750 example of the Buick Model C which accounted for Buicks total calendar year production. It was nearly identical to the Model B of 1904 and was available as a five-passenger tourer. It was priced at $1200 and rested on an 87-inch wheelbase. Powering the vehicle was an overhead valve engine that displaced 159 cubic-inches and produced 22 horsepower. There was a two-speed planetary gearbox with a cone clutch and chain drive. Braking was by mechanical brakes on two wheels.

David Buicks, a Michigan inventor, built a successful company by building powerful and reliable engines. Sadly, Buick's lack of business acumen brought him together with Durant and local bankers in an effort that saved the Buick brand. At the New York Auto Show in 1905, Durant accepted orders for more than 1,100 cars.

The foundation of the Buick automobile was laid in 1904 with the introduction of the successful two-cylinder, single chain drive model. This design would continue with few basic changes through 1910. Designated the model B in 1904, 37 cars were built during that first year of production. Today, there are no known surviving 1904 Buicks.

In 1905, Buick would only produce the Model C, which really was a virtual carbon copy of the Model B. By year end, a total of 750 Model C Buicks would be built. This example is one of only 14 known to exist today.

It is powered by a two-cylinder opposed engine with a bore and stroke of 4.5 x 5, displacing 159 cubic-inches and developing 22 horsepower.

This example new cost $1,200 and that price included two oil side lamps, tail lamp, horn and tool kit.
