    1972 Riviera
    Owner: Sav & Nichol Iordanou- 1972 Buick Riviera GS (but our 5 year old son Jordan has now claimed it as "His Riv") I previously owned a 1974 Riviera but always had my eye on a boat tail but couldn't find one a good one for sale in Australia. I found this car for sale in the U.S. After several months of negotiating and inspecting, I imported the car in 2014 from California from a gentleman who did a ground up restoration . The car is an all original state with all original power options work including cruise control , A/C and rear de-fogger. Even the dash clock works! All our 3 kids love going out on a family cruise!

Wheelhouses were wide open after a year of skirted fenders. Riviera shared Full-Flo ventilation with other Buicks and had the louvers on the deck lid. Standard features were numerous and included heater and defroster; Custom padded contoured seats; deep pile carpeting; electric clock; smoking set; head restraints; new seat belt system; inside hood lock release; variable power steering; TurboHydramatic; power front disk brakes and dual exhausts.

    1969 Model 44437 Skylark Coupe
    Owner: Ron & Beverley Noonan The coupe was shipped into the US Embassy in Canberra, new in 1969 and sold about 1972 when it was converted to right hand drive. After three owners, Ron purchased the coupe from a local car yard and considerably reworked it to be his performance car. Ron says, 'while drag strip ETS have been disappointing, due to traction problems, trap speeds of 94-97mph are consistent. Around the general performance car meets, Saturday night cruises, etc, Buicks are relatively unkown. Stunned owners of other makes, make comments like, 'is it an Oldsmobile? or 'does it have a Chev in it? or 'what is a Buick?'. There are probably less than 50 - 1964/72 Skylarks in Australia today.

    1964 Model 4747 Riviera Coupe
    Owner: Eric & Margaret North Delivered new to H.W. Webb of Auburn, California, Eric and Margaret's Riviera apparently found its way to Western Australia some time around 1970 or '71. It was converted to right hand drive by Auto Conversions of Redcliff, WA and stayed in Western Australia until 1985. The original colour was Tawny Mist but it was repainted in Vintage Burgundy with a white top some time in the early 1980s. When the owner died in 1985, his family moved the car to Blackheath, NSW and Eric and Maragret purchased it that year. Since then the car has had some mechanical and body work done but it remains in quite good, basically original, condition. It is the base Riviera model with no air conditioning or power options, the only options fitted were tilt steering and a radio. Power is the standard 425 cu in, V8 engine producing 340bhp.

    Owner: Graham & Narelle Weekes When purchased in 1995, the car was non standard in many areas. Progressive restoration and return to original is Graham's aim and with so few Skylarks in Australia, most components have to be sourced from USA. Graham says the Buick is a delight to drive and a very comfortable touring car. Although powered by the small 215 cu. in., all aluminium V8, it performs well. It is fitted with auto transmission, power steering and all electric options. Posted 02/2001

The wreck was purchased from an advertisment in Hemmings Motor News in March 1985. Containerised in Portland, it arrived in Australia in May .

    1941 Model Buick Convertible Sedan, model 51C
    Owner: Ron & Beverley Noonan Before I owned a car'I liked Phaetons, watching them on old' newsreels in other parts of the world, so I called them 'Parade Phaetons'. My first car a 1938 Special sedan was stripped and painted two tone to resemble a convertible sedan (the terminology varies in Buick ads), over the next 30 years I followed any lead on Buick rag tops, two 1938'Century Phaetons were pursued, when one was found by another member.'I had always been with in 20 miles of its location! In 1977 the owner of a 1941 Roadmaster Phaeton was found'but he had cut it up as it was so rusty, in 1955 As a senior citizen now the 'Bucket List' looms high for many things, a 1941 Buick convertible coupe was being purchased from New York but the seller pulled out at last moment, annoyed and on the rebound a more expensive convertible sedan was found in Pennsylvania and bought but when it arrived was not up to the owners description and photos lie, and about 6 months work was required before use. This is the last year for convertible sedans from GM, there were 508 made in Supers and this is body no 363,''' also 326 were made in Roadmasters.'In 1985 at Los Angeles we met Carl Ritz who owned the 1940 Buick 80 series convertible sedan that had been used in the film Casablanca, I videoed an interview with him and he said get in the car and sit where Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman sat, at the time it was for sale at 60G, I did not want to sell my house to own this piece of history, in the early 2000s it sold for US 205G. We call our 41 'Casablanca' and have covered about 9000 miles on club runs and two nationals. With a 3.6 rear axle it can get 21 mpg at 55 mph. Posted 07/2012

    1940 Model 51 Super Sedan
    Owner: Ron & Beverley Noonan This very desirable Buick was imported from California in 1996 after Ron saw it for sale in the Buick Bugle. Learning to drive in a Holden body 1940 Special, Ron has a special affection for 1940 Buicks, especially the smooth lines of the American built Super's. Ron says, 'while still on a pushbike, I used to keep an eye on a '40 Super convertible, a Super coupe and a Super sedan,' but these were different days and some 40 years passed before the Super was acquired. Maintained in left hand drive form, on arrival from the US, this Super was dissapointing in its mechanical condition and has since undergone a full mechanical restoration. Ron isn't aware of any other Fisher bodied, 1940 Supers in Australia today, but since showing the car, old photos of two RHD Fisher bodied Supers have surfaced but with survival knowledge expiring in 1968 and 1972 respectively.

    1939 Model Buick Century - 8/60
    Owner: Ron & Beverley Noonan Australian assembled 4 door sedan with Holden Body No 6. The car was totally restored in 2009. Circa 1976-77 this car was advertised for about 6 months when I decided to look, I found it was Woodstock and not Woodford, no way I could go and be back to hold a 3pm commitment that Sunday. At the following Thursday club meeting a member announced he had inspected the 39 and it was 'just another old overpriced Buick'! I was relieved that it saved a 250 mile trip. About 5-6 months later it turned up at a club run, I nearly flipped, a 3 owner 60K mile CENTURY. It changed hands 20 years later, 10 years later again it turns up in our club magazine for sale. I go and inspect, well all that had been achieved in 10 years was to completely dismantle and spread over 5 acres, a lot of parts were missing and never found, a lot of peculiar modifications had been made which caused a lot of headache. The body shell and doors were rust free and only that it was CENTURY, Holden body no 6, I bought it, had it been a Special I would have left it. I set the total restoration completion for 12 months because of missing parts/modifications it went out to 17 months. We have now covered over 8000 miles, 2 East Coast meets, club runs and Tasmania Nats, bewildering acceleration for 1939 (and still for todays traffic) especially compared to Specials and it will make 19 mpg at 55 mph.

Door trims are still original and in good condition.

    1938 Model Buick Century - 8/60
    Owner: Ron & Beverly Noonan I had heard of this car near my area since 1972 as it was one of the Buick 'finds' of Buick Club founder Ken Harding. About 1989 I heard it went off the 'radar'. In 2001 a phone call from a woman, she had been quoted $50G to restore her Buick, after a discussion about that she decided better to sell. I gave her the standard reply for free ads and details of Buick Club or Just cars. About 1 year later a phone call I spoke to before about the black Buick, 'do you want to buy it?'. The memory bank could not handle that ! Lets start again, what is it? a black Buick, year? I am told its 1938, what series? whats that? go look at the bonnet, Century, did this car come from Fairfield? yes , I will come and have a look as it was close by. Surprise, its all in pieces (that was not mentioned) the asking price was out of site, an offer of half that was made but rejected. Some weeks later a phone from the husband, will you go another 1G, no, a week later offer accepted. The first job was replace rear axle assembly so it was on wheels and 2 car trailer trips had all the parts home. It was assembled to determine what was missing, luckily I had all but the side cover inner flaps for 1 side, so rare that I thought no hope, lo and behold found them at a swap meet. The front suspension, brakes and carb were rebuilt, some painting, but there were no plans for it at that stage. A lot of people pass thru my place and there were many offers to buy, but it was not for sale, a change of circumstances and Ron Neale's' persistence saw it go in 2003. Posted 08/2012

    1938 Model Buick Special Coupe
    Owner: Ron Noonan NSW 1938 BUICK SPECIAL COUPE (this is my 7 th 1938 Buick that I can recall) I got to know the builder of this car when he contacted me looking for parts for a 1938 Pontiac coupe he had just imported , when that was finished he imported the Buick body and chassis , the car was completed in about 18 months , it was registered but was rarely used . A 1930 Buick was the next project . I was called over to view the finished 1930 and asked about the 1938 just sitting in the garage for some 2-3 years now ., and a Nash was now the project . The Buick was not for sale but you have first option when it is , that came about 9 months later .It had only travelled 1800 miles , all parts were new or rebuilt The body is basically stock,the chassis has a Pontiac front clip, a Ford disc brake LSD rear end on leaf springs ,a Chev 305 V8, Turbo 700 auto, power steering , electric windows .air conditioning ,Jeep bucket seats that incorporate seat belts , a one piece windscreen, modern instrument panel Performance is so so, (after 455s !) it is just a stock crate engine . The Turbo 700 R4 was a new experience for me and I have not been overly impressed after having modified Turbo 350, 400 and Ford C4 .and FMX autos I pulled it out and replaced the hi stall convertor and rebuilt the 700 back to stock internals which had been modified, if I was 20 years younger it would be all out and in with 455 and Turbo 350, Jag or Commodore rear end.

    1927 Model 27-25 Standard Tourer
    Owner: Neil Patrick The car was bought new by my grandfather, William Parton, from Boyd-Edkins of Wentworth Avenue, Sydney, for 311/14/6d and was first registered on the 22nd February 1928. I still hold the receipt. My grandfather apparently saw no need for bumper bars etc. so these were never fitted. The '27 and '28 Standard models may have been the last Buicks not to be fitted with shock absorbers as standard equipment. The hood was only lowered once, as they thought it was too windy! The car was treated to a respray and retrim (including hood and side-curtains) about 1957. After my grandfathers death in 1959 my grandmother continued to use the Buick regularly, and also drove weekly from Longueville to West Pymble to visit her mother. I have looked after the car since she ceased driving in 1972. Apart from normal ongoing maintenance, the car has had no major rebuilds, and the bottom end of the motor is still original. A bit rattly these days, which is why I don't cruise above 35 - 40 mph. Posted 07/2015

    1926 Model 26-25 Standard Six Tourer
    Owner: Graham & Narelle Weekes Graham tells the story, 'in 1976, with our first baby in a carry basket, we picked up the bones of two cars from the local highway patrol officer in Mittagong for $450.' After 10 years and two more children, the Buick emerged from the garage. New skills had been acquired during this time such as, hand forming, painting and auto upholstery and the restoration was undertaken with originality in mind. There were teething troubles but the Buick is now a very reliable vehicle. With numerous concours wins to its credit, it also frequently participates in parades, displays, rallies and charity events.

    1918 EX-45 Tourer (5 passenger)
    Owner: Michael and Natasha Mackay UNDER RESTORATION The car was originally purchased in the new England area and after its useful life as a family vehicle it was converted to a ute then used as a truck in a gold mine. Later it was left to rot for a number of years at the old mine site. The chassis and mechanicals are now very close to being completed and the coachwork has been painted awaiting final assembly. Hopefully after 4 or 5 years, 2004 will see the Buick once again take to the road.
