Exciting New Buick Book Just Released
Buick - Across the Pond and Beyond

At home Buick and other GM marques operated virtually independently in the earlier years. Outside North America it was quite different. From the formation of General Motors Export Company in 1911, this single entity sold, marketed and managed all GM marques overseas.

“Buick, Across The Pond and Beyond” tells the story of Buick mainly in the United Kingdom, Europe and Scandinavia from the outset through to World War II. These were Buick’s golden years “Across the Pond”, when beautiful and elegant body styles, quite different to the American designs, were fitted to Buick chassis. Many of them were authorised, often marketed, and even sometimes built by GM in their overseas plants.

Reference is frequently made to GM and other GM marques as it is often difficult to segregate the Buick marque because of GMO’s single entity management. McLaughlin built models are shown as Canada supplied Great Britain and Flint built models are also shown as they were supplied to Europe and Scandinavia. Model ranges were selected according to market requirements for each country including locally designed and built body work not seen in North America.

Published in association with the Buick Club Inc in NSW and over six years in research and writing, this lavishly illustrated work of over 600 pages with 100+ in colour on glossy paper, is in two volumes in a fabric covered slip case.

eMail enquiries to - mail@buickclub.org.au - phone enquiries to John 02 9629 7957, Price AUD $125 + p&p $15 anywhere in Australia. Mastercard & Visa accepted through PayPal only. Ask about Australian Buick Club membership discount.

Now an AUSTRALIAN Buick Book
Buick - The Australian Story
A MUST READ for all Buick enthusiasts and readers with a special interest in GM's early Australian history.

With the Foreword by former Holden Public Affairs Manager, Marcus McInnes

Buick, the affordable car to aspire to. Favoured by Australians from the man in the street and the motor enthusiast through to Prime Ministers and ultimately the Govenor General. This is Buick's Australian history from its introduction here prior to General Motors, through its period of immense popularity in the 1920's to becoming the Doctor and General manager's car in the 1930's and 1940's and finally the enthusiast's and collector's car in later years. Buick was General Motors main product and cash cow in Australia until the mid 1920's, therefore Buick's Australian history is virtually inseparable from GM's early Australian history. This story provides an in depth insite into GM's entry and establishment in Australia prior to WW II and the introduction of the Holden car.
Written in chronological format covering Buicks presence and impact in Australia from the very early 1900's through to the present day. The text in lay terms covers Buick models, how Buicks were sold, who sold them and who bought them. There are many stories of epic Buick travel, particularly in the vintage and veteran years together with Buick's unique Australian designed and built body styles and purpose built work and professional cars. This 457 page story is illustrated with 750 B&W photographs (many period pictures), plus 450 other images including early advertising and sales literature. Published in association with the Buick Car Club of Australia Inc. in NSW., it is available only on direct purchase. eMail enquiries to - mail@buickclub.org.au - phone enquiries (02) 6772 1555 or (02) 9629 7957, Price - AUD$65 plus $15, P&P (Australia only) - Mastercard & Visa accepted through PayPal only
Also available in the USA on line in both print and eBook formats at "www.lulu.com". Go to "books" and enter the word "Buick".
