One of the oldest vehicles to be found on the 2016 show field for the Milwaukee Concours d’Elegance is this 1912 Buick 28 Roadster owned by Thomas and Joyce Edfors of Lake Mills, Wis. The car is an original unrestored automobile retaining original engine, body, fenders, lamps, horn and most of its original paint. This Buick sports 4 cylinders cast in pairs with overhead valves, and manual transmission.
A Sporty Car for 1912
The model 28 was only produced in 1912 with about 2,500 made. Wheelbase is 108 inches with a 201- cu. in. engine and 36 x 4-1/2 inch tires. It was Buick’s most sporty model for that year.
Unrestored 1912 Buick 28 Roadster
The car is stunning in its wine and black exterior paint scheme. This particular Buick is an original and unrestored. It has never been taken apart and has its original running gear. Most paint appears to be original as does the upholstery. The top material has been replaced. It earned the Preservation Award at the Central Fall Meeting of the Antique Automobile Association of America in 2014.
