Well, I did it! I am now the proud owner of a 1938 Century Sport Coupe 66S. In very good condition. No doubt I will have some questions and need some advice from you 37 and 38 guys. I will join the 37/38 Club shortly. Meanwhile, herewith some pictures, boys and girls...

What are all the extra switches under left side of dashboard?

Pete:

 

One of the previous owners "customized" the wiring. The switches control instrument lights, map light, spotlight, driving lights, etc. My plan is the remove the dash and "undo" some of the changes and upgrade the wiring as necessary. And repair the radio and clock. The same thing I did to my '40.

 

Didja catch the huge Super Ray Cross Country lights?

Hi Dave,

that is one sharp 1938 Buick! Lots of little period things that have been done like the small reverse lamp, the turn signal switch and the spot lamp. I note that yours is a Century and keen to spot the differences between yours and our Australian bodied “ all enclosed coupe”. And yes, am very biased toward ‘38 coupes for some reason 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

 

Enjoy the journey, you can never have toooooo many Buicks!

Rodney from down under 😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀

 I am glad to see the 38 arrived safe and sound. I can't wait to come down for a visit and see it.

 Many happy miles!

Only car I would want if I didn't have my 41 Century 66S. I am always looking around for this exact car. All that you could ask for and a great investment. Like they say its the "One to have" You have chosen wisely !
