Grovtli of Closed Cars
Lrinked to Buick History
NEW YORK, Aug. 21. The
growth of the closed car is closely
ly linked with the history of the
Buick lotor company, - -!
First one must go .back to the
1914 period. At that time people
thought the motor car had reach
ed ;-: its senlth. Valuen were -believed
to 'be nearly perfect and it
appeared i to many that ; automor
bile sales had reached the satura

er be reduced. . This was' before
the war when materials and-wages
were flower t and ; the 'dollar was
worth nearly twice as much as it
is today. ' . .

a strange looking affair, described
in the catalogue as "a closed car
of magnificent' appointments,
every detail complete nothing
left to be desired. It had a 112
Inch wheelbase, four cylinders and
35 horsepowerv. It sold for $1800
from the factory. In contrast ii.
the present, a 4-passenger, 6-cy-Hnder
coupe, selling for I14C5.
