Why Model K-45 [K-45]? It sounds like a useless repetition, all the more as there are only 2 cars identified as Buick Model K-45 for now in the IMCDb (both with this repetition).

What else do you suggest it be called? Remember that very few cars had model names as they do nowadays. In its day it would have been simply a Buick. In 1920 there was no other model of Buick, just different body styles, each with a different model number; the roadster was 44, the touring 45, the coupe was 46, the sedan was 47, the 7 passenger touring 49 and the 7 passenger sedan was Model 50. Buick's first 'named' model was the in 1925 when they first had two different six cylinder lines and distinguished them as Master and Standard. From 1929 to 1935 they were either Model something or Series something. From 1936 they adopted new names for the four series of cars.

Even upmarket cars of the time had no model names. Duesenbergs were Model A, J or SJ. Lincolns were Model L or K. Bugattis were all numbered "Type".

It is the same as for US Fords. Starting from 1903 they went through the alphabet with letter model names, though missed a few out, until the T in 1908 and started again in 1927 with the 'new' Model A. It wasn't until the 1950s that Ford adopted a model name with the Mainline and Customline.

Which means that "Model K-45 Touring [K-45]" is saying thrice the same thing :D

What about "Buick Touring [K-45]" (with Touring as name, not as complement)? Here you have both the model "name" (Touring) and the model code in its right place?
I followed a similar pattern, for the Dodge (Dodge Touring Sedan [D-8]): having a body type as model name doesn't seem to be a problem in IMCDb habits ;)

'Touring' is most definitely not a model name (it is a style of body) and I strongly object to its use, particularly in regard to Dodge and LaSalle among other makes that in some years made only one type of car and had no need to have a model name, but unfortunately some people have been reading too many advertising brochures.

The car in question is simply a 1920 Buick. Any other information goes into the 'extra info' box. The 'model' box is for known name info like Corolla and Crown. In some earlier years Buick produced several different models. For example in 1916 they built a four cylinder and two different sixes. Each is differentiated by a model number as there were no model names.
