The significance of Buick to the ongoing history of America’s automobile industry cannot be overstated. While David Dunbar Buick may have started the enterprise, the marque bearing his surname is a keystone in the biographies of some of the most influential names in America’s automotive industry including Jonathan Maxwell, “Billy” Durant, Walter L. Marr, Charles Nash, Walter P. Chrysler, Alfred P. Sloan, Charles Chayne, and Harlow Curtice. Likely, David Dunbar Buick’s biggest contribution was the adoption of the advanced and powerful “valve-in-head” OHV engine design of Walter L. Marr and Eugene Richard. The production genius of Nash and Chrysler made Buick a champion of superior performance at an affordable price and helped keep General Motors afloat throughout its turbulent period under Durant, Wall Street bankers, and Sloan’s duPont-backed leadership.

While Buick introduced a six-cylinder model to the lineup by 1914, the bulk of production was comprised of four-cylinder cars. Among the ‘fours” was the Model B-24 Roadster and B-25 Four-Door Touring on a 105-inch wheelbase length with power delivered by a 165-inch OHV four-cylinder engine producing 22 horsepower; the B-36 Roadster, B-37 4-Door Touring, and B-38 Coupe sharing a 112-inch wheelbase chassis and 35-hp 221 cid four-cylinder engine; and the big B-55 Four-Door Touring on a 130-inch wheelbase length with the new 331 cid six-cylinder engine. As Buick’s most important model for 1914, the B-25 Touring was priced from $1,050 with 13,446 built plus 1,544 chassis-only examples produced for export. Tried and true, the B-25 Touring and its B-25 Roadster stablemate retained Buick’s traditional styling cues up front, including the angular hood and radiator shell, standard-configuration folding top, and standard-height windshield. Updates for 1914 also included Delco electric starting and lighting and a switch to left-hand drive with a center-mounted gear shift and emergency brake lever.

This visually captivating 1914 Buick B-25 Four-Door Touring from The Jimmie Taylor Collection is nicely finished and accented with a canvas top, light yellow wheels with pin stripes and demountable rims, period-style Firestone tires, and a rear-mounted spare rim and tire, plus a Buick-scripted Moto-Meter and tail lamp. Inside are found black button-tufted upholstery, a handsome wood-rimmed steering wheel, and Jones sweep-needle speedometer. Underhood, the engine bay and famed “valve in head” engine are correct in overall appearance and of good driver quality. Handsomely presented, this 1914 Buick B-25 Four-Door Touring continues to symbolize the quality design and construction so emblematic of Buick throughout its long history.
