Frédéric wrote to us from Dijon, France about his 1936 Buick:
Here are some pictures of my Buick8 of 1936.
It is being restored, but there are very few mechanical parts in France!
It was commissioned by the French army before WW2. In 1940, the Germans would have captured this car. In 1944, the U.S. military recovered the car and given back to the French army in 1946 … !
The speedometer is in kilometers / hour and not miles / hours.
There are currently only 5 models in Europe. I am looking for sponsors to help me restore this lovely car!
It’s a fascinating bit of history on wheels. If you would like to contact Fred, please drop us a line and we’ll pass the message along. Click on any of the pictures for a full-resolution view.
