    Photograph, b/w. About 218,000 new Buicks were built in 1923, with 14 models available. The engine was larger than before and the prices of all models were reduced, with a 4-cylinder roadster selling for $865 and the 6-cylinder touring car for $1175. This popular model had more comfortable seats and a longer transmission control lever for easier reach. One minor improvement made this year was the “drain cap release”, a lever which, when turned slightly, allowed to oil from the crankcase to be drained by remote control. This feature was soon abandoned by Buick because the handle of the release could be turned by accident, causing the motor oil to drain, unnoticed by the driver, thus causing severe damage to the engine in a very short time.
