Marquette
The Buick Motor Car Co.
Flint, Michigan
1929-1931

The Marquette was an American Automobile built by The Buick Motor Car Co. in Flint, Michigan from 1929 to 1931. It was introduced as a new smaller Buick and designed to bridge the price gap between Buick and Oldsmobile.

Prices ranged from $990.00 for the Business Coupe to $1,060.00 for the Sedan.

In the late 1920s there was a trend toward companion cars. In 1925 Nash introduced the Ajax-Nash, in 1927 Overland began production of the Whippet and that same year REO introduced the Wolverine. Cadillac brought out the LaSalle and Studebaker produced the Erskine. So on June 1, 1929 Buick introduced the Marquette at Buick dealers.

The five passenger Phaeton featured above offer beauty and good taste in line and color.
