David Dunbar Buick together with Eugene Richard applied for a patent in 1902 for Walter Marr’s overhead valve engine, which patent, number 771,095, was awarded in the name of Buick in 1904. In 1904, the “Buick Motor Company,” moved to Flint, Michigan. That year, 37 Buick automobiles were made. By 1908 Buick produced 8800 vehicles, making it the biggest car manufacturer in the USA

David Buick incorporated his company as the Buick Motor Company on May 19, 1903, in Detroit, Michigan. Buick then sold his stock in 1906. His successors, including a man called Durant later established General Motors on the back of the growth of Buick.

From humble beginnings of 37 sales in 1904 Buick has grown into one of the leading world Luxury Car brands, selling 1,231,941 vehicles in 2015.
