David Dunbar Buick Corporation (Signed by David Dunbar Buick)
Item# 4526

In 1922, David Buick made a last ditch effort to cash in on his Buick marquee with the incorporation of the David Dunbar Buick Corporation in New York with $5 million in capital to produce a car called the Dunbar in five models, a touring car, sedan, coupe, roadster and limousine. A plant, located in Poughkeepsie, NEw York, opened in 1923 and the first car was described in one newspaper as a beautiful maroon with battleship red wheels . . . the engine works beautifully and the furnishings of the car were first class. No other Dunbars were produced. Buick and his key promoters were unable to line up enough investors and nothing substantive materialized, another dream dashed. No one knows what happened to the only Dunbar produced.
