The General Motors Company was founded in 1908 when William C. Durant combined the existing Buick, Cadillac and Oldsmobile companies. The Buick line was the most successful of the three and by 1910 was producing a variety of two and four cylinder vehicles with the famous “Valve In-Head” engines that were first developed in late 1904. This 1910 Model F Touring car has a two-cylinder, overhead valve engine that is mounted underneath the vehicle’s body-not under the hood as one would normally expect, coupled to a planetary transmission and a chain driven rear end.
