    !937 Buick 40 coupe running board trim

    He is an ex GM Flint employee. Is now elderly and unsure if he is still supplying these. I called at his house a few years ago, but he was not at home.

    I just DON'T like the picture of this Buick

    Trotters & pacers ! They do a mile in about 2 minutes, so 30MPH. At the start the car/pick up pulls ahead and the gates are closed, usually by hydraulics. Then pulls off the track after a few furlongs

    Yes . The late 50's to mid 60' BMC Farina range. Austin 6 cylinder & Morris & Riley Wolseley clones The same body shell was used for a Vanden Plas with a 6 cylinder Rolls Royce engine https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Motor_Corporation#BMC_Farina https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austin_Westminster https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morris_Oxford_Farina https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanden_Plas

    1941 Century Model 61

    If the rear fenders & bumper were bolted on it may be easier to sell. Would look more complete then.

    1939-49 opera 1/4 window weatherstripping

    OK. Went to shed and had a look at my first '39 (green car purchased ~1981) Some rubber fell off when I touched it (picture 1) On the C pillar at the bottom of the window metal pressing is small metal tab & 2 spot welds. That is what the change of shape in the rubber is for. Tomorrow will look at me friends cars, which may show it better (have better access) Billy & OC will recognise the photos' but others may/will not.

    1939-49 opera 1/4 window weatherstripping

    In the last few hours have had a look at 5 off '39 Buick's in various conditions (mine & friends) One 1 only (my black car) was rubber strip on the angles C pillar as attached (poor) photos. Is left side & right side. Is behind the feathered weather seal (with chromed trim).[Pulled rubber out for photo] Car is gray primer and the rubber is black/dusty to photo's not that good. Would need take some parts out of the car for better access (car being used for storage of parts) May (or may not) be original but I think has not replaced in the last ~80 years Did not notice that on 3 other cars in a similar disassembled state. Will go back and look again tomorrow. Will send other photos by email

    Saw this clean MGB today....

    MGB GT were made with V8's Used the Rover (ex Buick) ~3500 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MG_MGB A lot better than the heavy 6 cylinder (MGC)
  11. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicle_identification_number Car's of that era may have - engine serial number - chassis/frame number - body number (typical for GM cars with a cowl data plate. That unique number is not the same as the frame number)

    1941 320 intake n exhaust

    The other thread on this manifold http://forums.aaca.org/topic/309531-1941-320-intake-n-exhaust/?tab=comments#comment-1742710
  13. If its like a '39 Buick & other GM cars of that era the firewall data plate will not have the chassis/frame number. The firewall plate does have the body number, but that is not the same as the chassis/frame number. Cars of that time did not have VIN's as we know them today:--> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicle_identification_number What number is on the title?

    Looking at buying a 39 Century but have questions

    The air cleaner is the 320ci style. Also the internal door handles show the plastic insert. Series 40 do not have that (but handles can be swapped) From images I have of this car from 2017 is shows a good distance from the door pillar to the back edge of the front fender. Much smaller on specials
