  1. Marty thanks for the beautiful and great reference phtos and all your fisrt hand input with the brakes, suspension and driving experience. Last night I learned the 56s has paint code 350 which equals Black w/cream stripe, and car is all dark green.Also the interior is a beige mohair with a plain pattern and although the color maybe close to Trim # 200 (plush taupe) I don't know what the material should be and the pattern does'nt have the seam cross the middle like your front seat does.The car is not cheap and wondered if the paint and interior would affect the value much . I wasn't able to att

  3. Sean thanks for eng.# locaton,will contact owner soon and keep you posted. Do you know if the up draft carb is correct for this car. Joe

  6. Hello all Happy 2013,Thought this site would be a good start for info before I make a purchase of a '35 Buick 56s with dual side mounts.Are there numbers that could confirm if the motor is original to the car.Here is what I have so far,Vin.#2813549, Style#35-4557, Body#198 and Trim#200. Is there a reference chart to describe what these #'s mean.Would it tell me what the original body color was and the type of interior it came with.The car appears to be a lightly used and well presurved older restoration so anything could have be altered during the restoration. The motor is a straight 8 ohv and
