The Buffum was an American automobile manufactured from 1901 until 1906 by the HH Buffum Co of Abington, Massachusetts.[1]

The Buffums built between 1901 and 1904 were powered by 4-cylinder engines,[2] but later in 1904 they built the Model G Greyhound, which was a racing model powered by two horizontal four-cylinder engines coupled together to make a flat-eight cylinder engine.[1] The Greyhound was the first 8-cylinder car offered for sale in the United States. In 1906 another eight-cylinder powered car was offered for sale, although this time the engine was a V-8.[1]
