In 1911, Buick introduced two new models. One was the Model "26" which lasted for three years. The other was a chain drive two cylinder roadster designated Model "14"and constructed to “meet the incessant demand of Buick patons for a low priced up-to-date runabout”. With as many horsepower as its number and a selling price of $550, this cute “buggyabout” was sold only for the 1911 season.
