1929 Buick Model 29-55 Touring Buick garnered a reputation of being a doctors choice in lieu of purchasing a Cadillac. Reason being, physicians of the day were very contentious of their patients and what their impression of them was, and of course their car was a giveaway. If a patient would pull up or the doc would arrive at a patients house, in a Cadillac, they may have left with the impression that the doc is overpaid. But a Buick of the day was certainly as luxurious and way more affordable than a Cadillac, so the impression was left to the patient! For consignment, a 1929 Buick Model 29-55 Touring sedan in beautiful condition. Recent maintenance and some rebuilds have this car in tip top shape and ready to turn the key and drive away for some fun. Exterior Wonderful maroon paint bathes the body of this big car, and there is plenty of steel too cover. From the cowled hood to the 4 doors and beyond, maroon is beautifully applied and looks as new. Contrasting black fenders curve around large wide white wall tires that wrap straw colored wire spoked 20-inch wheels. Even the 2 spare tires on either side tucked into the front fenders are beautifully restored and await their being pressed into service if need be. Leading the way is a beautifully chromed radiator surround flanked on either side by a large round headlight. Triple bars for the bumper below that undulates to the contour of the front of the vehicle. Pinstriped fenders show in black as does the open suspension in front, all rust free and beautifully preserved. Moving back on the laser straight cowled hood some running lights are attached to the firewall cowl, and a chromed shiny windshield surround is noted, that can be lowered when the top is in the down position. 4 doors for easy entry into the luxurious passenger compartment over the running boards we go. A tan canvas convertible top is held on by a chromed metal and oak wood frame which has been beautifully restored. On the back between the rear fenders in black is a trunk which sits perched atop a luggage rack on the back of the car. Triple chromed bar split bumpers protect the fenders in back and add a nice highlight to the back of this beautiful car. Every detail on this car has been attended to and we have a beautiful restoration for 1929 which presents as new. Interior Saddle brown stitched leather for this interior which is on the door panels in the form of a locking pouch, which has the door actuator above. Stitched leather straps are providing the hinges. Inside dual overstuffed tuck and roll benches covered in faultless saddle brown leather provide the passenger seating. The rear bench has armrests and provides plenty of space for the rear passengers. A rich warm wood rimmed steering wheel fronts a black metal painted dash that is peppered with round chrome bezel black faced gauges. These are within a chromed framed panel. The dash top is bathed in maroon like the exterior. Brown carpeting covers the floors and leather also trims the toe kick panels under the dash. A long shift lever rises up from the floor to reach for the drivers hand. Drivetrain Under the cowled hood is a perfectly restored 309ci inline 6-cylinder engine. It is painted a beautiful lima bean green and has silver attachments throughout. A 1-barrel carburetor is feeding the engine, and a 3-speed manual transmission is on back. All presented in showroom condition under this hood. Undercarriage As expected with a restoration of this quality, no road dirt or rust is seen underneath. Sturdy black painted framing, body hangers and some wood flooring are noted in all pristine condition. Leaf spring suspension is on all 4 corners, and mechanical drum brakes are seen all around as well. Drive-Ability As with the appearance of this car so goes the drive-ability, which to sum up is perfection. It has smooth acceleration, all functions are performing as they should, and the car handles nicely, and stops well for a mechanical drum brakes car. Overall very nicely preserved and the presentation is excellent. Any self-respecting country doctor would drive this car in lieu of a Caddy any day of the week and look fair priced while doing so. A plus plus for this 1929 Buick.
