• Upscale and well-appointed Master Six
• Famed “valve in head” overhead-valve engine
• Luxuriously appointed passenger compartment
• Striking Art Deco-inspired “Goddess of Speed” mascot

Model 28-47. 274 cid OHV inline six-cylinder engine, Marvel T4 carburetor, 77 HP at 2,800 RPM, three-speed sliding gear manual transmission, solid front axle and full-floating rear axles with semi-elliptic leaf springs, four-wheel mechanical brakes; wheelbase: 120"


Despite the fact that Buick had always enjoyed an enviable reputation as a maker of stylish and reliable cars with advanced engineering, the GM Division faced considerable competition for sales within the crowded market of the 1920s. The last of the four-cylinder Buicks disappeared after 1924; the next year both the Standard and Master lines from Buick featured six-cylinder engines across the board. For 1928, Buick’s ‘six’ was available with 207 cid for the Standard and 274 cid with the Master Six, rated at 63 HP and 77 HP respectively. Of course, both versions featured Buick’s trademark “valve-in-head” OHV design, the legacy of Buick engineer Walter L. Marr.

A large part of Buick’s strong appeal was gained from its wide model range, with seven Standard Series body styles and 10 available for the Master Six. Next to the Standard Series Five-Passenger Sedan, the upscale Master Six Series Five-Passenger Sedan was Buick’s most important model for 1928. Priced from $1,495, the Model 28-47 Master Six Five-Passenger Sedan included chromed headlight shells, wide, easy-access doors, new external door handles, and carpeted rear passenger compartments. A new double-drop frame provided a lower profile and gave Harley Earl’s designers new freedom to produce bodies that were more stylish than ever before. Buick’s highly successful 1928 models were introduced on July 28, 1927 and the two-millionth Buick was built during November 1927.

Offered from The Jimmie Taylor Collection, this 1928 Buick Master Six Five-Passenger Sedan is a nicely presented example of Buick’s successful formula that propelled the cornerstone GM Division to the success it continues to enjoy today. In addition to bright “triplane” bumpers front and rear, it features a 1928 West Virginian license plate, a bright radiator shell topped by a beautiful Buick “Goddess” mascot, twin cowl lamps, a steel sun visor, padded roof, spoked wheels with demountable rims, period style blackwall tires, and a covered rear spare and “Buiclite” central taillight. Underhood resides the correctly equipped Buick “valve in head” six-cylinder engine. Inside, the driver is greeted by a wood-rimmed steering wheel, carburetor choke and carburetor heat controls, plus comprehensive instruments monitoring amperage, oil pressure, fuel level, and coolant temperature, plus an AC-branded speedometer, odometer, and trip meter. The rear passenger compartment is well-equipped with privacy blinds, armrests, storage compartments, and a foot rest. While showing signs of age-appropriate wear and flaws, the interior is nonetheless well presented and overall, this 1928 Buick Master Six Five-Passenger Sedan consistent with either a well-preserved original prewar car or a selective older restoration.
