MARQUETTE SIX

Saloon, fabric saloon, sportsman's coupé, tourer, roadster, various specials.

A lower priced version of the Buick, this marquee was built at Flint, Michigan and closely resembled contemporary Pontiac products. It was the only sidevalve made by Buick, by the way. Very ordinary, the 3½-litre 'six' pushed out around 67bhp, there was pump cooling, six-volt electrics, a three-speed 'box, spiral bevel final drive, hydraulic dampers and artillery wheels as standard. You could have wires if you wanted, and the car was good for around 65mph and 16-18mpg.
