  1. Charlie,  I agree with Hugh.  You need to unbolt the rear spring hangers that attach to the rear axle housing so you are able to move the axle and torque tube back. If you remove the rear tires,  you are able to move the rear axle and torque tube further back creating extra room.  This will allow the room to install the engine and gear box.  Then you can move the rear axle and torque tube forward and attach to the gear box.  I place blocks of wood under the wheels so the axle doesn,t  drop down too low.

  2. Garry,  Unfortunately in Aust,  complete unrestored brass cars are unobtainable. If  you  pick up a trailer load of parts you consider yourself lucky, and then look for missing parts and parts that can be used for patterns.   My engine number is 6011  which makes it a 1912.  I would have prefered to buy a complete or older restoration.  This one was recently for sale for US $36,500  but with the low Aust $ it put it out of my reach.  You have a beautiful car.  Hopefully when I get over to the US,   I,ll get to go for a ride in your,s and Marks  cars.

  3. Bob,  Its hard to beat red to get that WOW factor. Looks fantastic.  Roger,  I always feel  wire wheels give a more up market look to our Buicks.  I picked up a set of wire,s and hubs for my 25,  but they are 21" not the 22",  Still unsure wether to put the smaller wheels on. Do you still have the car. 


  4. Apolo.   What are your plans with this car.   Are you considering a full,  body off restoration or getting the engine running and then refurbishing individual parts.  As you have a very complete car,  if it was me, I would work on one part at a time.  The problem with dismantling a car is often they never get back together again and you end up with lots of parts.  All the best with your new project,  and keep us informed on your progress.  We love to see updates on what people are doing on their cars.

    Chris,

     

    Thanks for the corrections on the Buick and the 'Nash'.  Bruce wasn't really sure about the model of the Buick and as you know there are cars all over the place.  Something tells me that this Buick might end up following you home😁.
