The Depression slowed Buick sales. However the company recovered during the late 1930s and was fourth in production volume by 1938. During Buicks early production years, they championed the belief of superior performance at an affordable price. Their overhead valve engine was powerful and durable; it powered Buicks for the first three decades of the twentieth century. By the early 1930s, the Buick Company shifted to an all-new straight eight to power its cars. The engineers had felt that the six-cylinder engines had been engineered to its full potential, and its limits were reached. Over the years, its size had increased, performance enhanced, and its efficiency and smoothness expanded to its full potential. Entering the 1930s and with the mounting cylinder wars between marques, the decision to switch to an eight-cylinder engine was what the marketplace was seeking.</p><p>This terrific example is a Series 90 Model 94 7-Passenger 4-Door Phaeton. It is powered by the 344ci 8-Cylinder with a 3-speed manual transmission. It is an older restoration that has held up remarkably well and looks fantastic in cream and orange. Features dual side mounts, spoke wheels and a rear mounted trunk. Starts, runs and drives great and would make a welcome addition to any collection. 1931 Buick Series 90 Phaeton
