1922 Buick McLaughlin Limousine, 4086cc. Registration number DY 2320. Chassis number 60259. Engine number X3159.
The McLaughlin Carriage Company of Canada was founded in 1867, producing hand-made sleights and carriages. By the turn of the century McLaughlin carriages were highly regarded and the company moved into motorcar production. The first McLaughlin car was produced in 1908. Mechanically, this McLaughlin car was like the contemporary Buick 4, but the body was all-Canadian.
In 1918 the entire McLaughlin car business was sold to General Motors of Canada and in 1923 the name of the car was changed to McLaughlin-Buick.
This rare UK from new car was bodied by Elkington of Kings Road in London and its early live is unknown. Discovered in the early 1960's in Crystal Palace, Ian Pratt bought it in 1977 and commenced a 25 year restoration to the very high standards you see today.
Completed in 2002 it was was occasionally, the mileage rising to 2,706 miles, he sold it via Bonhams Beaulieu auction in 2021. Our vendor has used it occasionally but now wishes it to move to a new home.
Sold with the V5C, comprehensive restoration photography folder, and associated paperwork.
