David Dunbar Buick - Buick Oil Company

The Buick Oil Company was founded by the auto pioneer David Dunbar Buick (1854-1929) and was incorporated in Los Angeles, California in March, 1910. D. D. Buick signs this great stock as President. Rare and excellent condition.

David Dunbar Buick
was born in Arbroath, Scotland. He deserved fame and fortune, yet died in poverty and is virtually unknown in his native land. Buick founded the company that grew into the General Motors Corporation of America. Over 17,000,000 cars bearing his name and crest have rolled off production lines, yet he was involved in making only 120 of them.
