    Jim would race the Buick with the top up and down. He later on swap the engine and trans for a 401 Buick nailhead and 400 trans for more of an daily driver use. Blown engine was purchase by Tommy Ivo , this is what I was told. for a long time he ran Buick wire wheels. he also had a set of bufflo wire he would bolt on for the movies .

    Thank you for getting that information form Sapulpa . My under standing about the year of the vehicle; I was told back then the year the vehicle was sold is what they put on the reg papers, so vehicle was a 1923 but was sold in 1922 . If the vin# plate is behind left front wheel out side of frame its a 1923 - 1922 and early it was on the back cross menber.
  4. No it's not a chevy El Camino, it's a Buick

    These 2 cars show that did a little custom work to a few Buicks, now these 2 cars are not the Buick that I saw.
  5. Jim Morris own AN 1925 Buick Touring Car he race at lions drag strip and a few other strips in the 60's. He was running an stroke nailhead Buick engine with I be live an CAD trans. I was told it ran in the 10 second 1/4 mile . This Buick was in Hot Rod as well as Car Craft magazine, and they made a model of it to. It was Hot Rod and Car Craft magazine. The Buick is still on the road, but as a driver Jim was great guy and a joker too. If Anybody known Jim or has photos of this Buick I would like to see them or hear from you.
