Buick is currently the oldest American still-active automotive maker. It originated as the Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company in 1899, an independent internal combustion engine and motor-car manufacturer, and was later incorporated as the Buick Motor Company in 1903, by Scottish born David Dunbar Buick in Detroit, Michigan.
Later that year, the struggling company was taken over by James H. Whiting, who moved it to his hometown of Flint, Michigan.
The first Buick made for sale, the 1904 Model B, was built in Flint, Michigan. There were 37 Buicks made that year, none of which survived. Buicks were first built to replicate the living room in a moving automobile, and were nicknamed the “moving couch of America”.
Durant was a natural promoter, and Buick soon became the largest car maker in America. Using the profits from this, Durant embarked on a series of corporate acquisitions, calling the new megacorporation General Motors. At first, the manufacturers comprising General Motors competed against each other, but Durant ended that. He wanted each General Motors division to target one class of buyer, and in his new scheme, Buick was near the top — only the Cadillac brand had more prestige. Buick occupies this position to this day in the General Motors lineup.
In 1911, Buick introduced its first closed-body car, four years ahead of Ford. Buick scored another first in 1939, when it became the first company to introduce turn signals.
