Editor’s note: This is the 26th in a 30-day series featuring cars from the Tammy Allen Collection to be sold October 13-15 at Barrett-Jackson’s 2016 Las Vegas Auction.

Offered from the Tammy Allen collection without reserve at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas block, this Buick was purchased in chassis form and sent to the Brewster Company of Long Island City, New York, to receive its body built to order.

At the time, Brewster was one of the largest and best-known coachbuilders in America, and this was one of the last cars it did before the company was liquidated.

The town car limousine features an open chauffeur’s compartment equipped with a sliding division window.

The car also has dual side-mounted spare tires and a rear-mounted trunk along with a 248 cubic inch engine with a 3-speed manual transmission.

This 1938 Buick Brewster town car and the rest of the Tammy Allen Collection will be crossing the block at no reserve as part of Barrett-Jackson’s ninth annual Las Vegas Auction, October 13-15 at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. For more information, visit www.Barrett-Jackson.com/Bid or call 480-421-6694. Absentee bidding options powered by Proxibid are also available.
