GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this 1928 Buick Country Club Coupe for your consideration. Famously known as the last car to leave Mackinac Island, this Buick has an interesting history to accompany it. Purchased by E.M. Tellefeson and brought to the island, Tellefeson had previously had two other vehicles on the island despite the 1896 resolution banning the "horseless carriage." Tellefeson had a somewhat long commute and continued to operate the Buick until 1935 when everyone on the island was up in arms over the matter and the court issued a final order to "Quit Using That Car!" Not long after that, the Buick was placed on blocks in the barn behind Tellefeson's house, where it sat for 40 years, until leaving the island by barge for St. Ignace in 1975.
This 1928 Buick Country Club Coupe has since been lovingly restored after its exile from Mackinac Island. The coachwork is in excellent shape with a lustrous black paint job and a red pinstripe. The landau top is beautiful shape with the landau irons intact. With dual mounted fender spares and a cargo trunk, this Buick is very complete. The engine received a complete overhaul during the restoration. It fires right up and runs smooth. The 21in knock-off wheels are wrapped in white walls which accentuate the long sleek lines of this beautiful Buick.
Climbing into the cabin of this Buick is not just a trip back in time, it's a trip back in time to Mackinac Island in the last car to cruise her roads. There is some memorabilia that accompanies the car, including the original title issued to E.M. Tellefeson. Don't miss the chance to own this exquisite documented piece of history!
