    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

  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.

    A window into the life of a car dealer

    Looks a very nice collectable driver car to me (from the other side of the world) Cars of that era were far from what we now call "perfect" when they left the factory.
