    Looking for 1937 Series 80 Parts

    Some Buick McLaughlin parts can be different, especially interior. On the late 30's smaller series wheels can be 6 bolt vs 5 bolt for USA GM Fisher production. For example 1939 s40 s60 hubcaps are different. Some parts will be the same as 40 & 60 series, but others will not. Canadian Buck Club:- http://www.mclaughlin-buickclub.ca/ Download the 1942 Buick shop manual. All of it section by section. The pdf link does not work. http://www.oldcarmanualproject.com/manuals/Buick/1942/Shop%20Manual/ It is very comprehensive and has information that can be used with all straight 8’s. It has more information than was included in older “Shop Manuals” before 1942-41

    Download the 1952 Shop manual from---> https://www.teambuick.com/reference/index.php https://www.teambuick.com/reference/library/52_shop/index.php
  4. With the 46 body data tags, the 48 upright mid engine mounts and (some) 47/48 front sheet metal to my wild guess is a 46 body on a 47/48 frame When it was 15-20-25 years old it was worth ~$99.99. Or the value of the tyres.

  10. 1939-1952 are basically the same (small variations) Try Dave T. The best source of pre war Buick parts is Dave Tacheny in Champlin, MN 55316. He specializes in 1936-1941 Buick parts. He is old school:- no email. The best way to contact him is to call him between 4 and 7 pm Central at 763-427 3460. http://forums.aaca.org/topic/206688-dave-tachney/ Note exhaust manifolds are prone to cracking. Disassemble & reassemble very carefully.
