Buick is currently the oldest still-active American automotive make, and among the oldest automobile brands in the world. It originated as the Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company in 1899, incorporating into the Buick Motor Company in 1903.
The first Buick for sale to the public was the Model B, in 1904. There were 37 Buicks made that year. None of which have survived. There are, however, two reproductions: the 1904 endurance car (Buick Gallery & Research Center in Flint, MI) and a Model B (California for the division’s 100th anniversary).
Overall domestic sales of the Buick brand peaked in 1984. Buick began consolidating its lines in 2005, eventually reducing to just three models, LaCrosse, Lucerne and Enclave.
