Limousine
Series 90 - Buick's largest and most luxurious vehicle - was named the Limited. The most costly Buicks in production, 'Limited' indicated that these models featured a high level of trim along with standard options. The line was produced between 1936 and 1942 and consisted entirely of touring sedans and limousines. 410 Series 90 Limited Limousines were built in 1938. They featured a vertical grille, a slightly longer hood, taller front bumper guards and more stylish front fender running lights than the previous models. 1938 was the last year Buick utilized wood in the body for the Roadmaster and Limited Series.

The Dynaflash valve-in-head straight-eight engine produced 141 horsepower and gave the Limited a 'smooth and thrifty performance unequaled by former models.'

Inside, one would find 'commodious luxury and magnificent appointments' all contained within 'the security of the Unisteel Turret Top Body by Fisher.' Cushioned seats, high-quality carpet, and an automatic dome light 'of iridescent glass' contributed to the ambience of the Limited Limousine. With a luxurious interior and a smooth ride, one could arrive in style and comfort in a Buick Limited Limousine, while one's chauffeur 'enjoyed handling ease characteristic of smaller motorcars.'

This right hand drive example was purchased in 19338 for 5,000 Rupees by the Maharajah of Jind in Haryana, India. it was bought by Ludwig Rydel in 1970 and exported to the United States. In 1995 it was restored and became part of the current owner's collection.
