  1. I am in Freeport Illinois. The parts are nos that were bought by a collector but never used. The fenders were up in the rafters and no one wanted to get them down that owned it. A neighbor grabbed them right before they tore the building down. I got them from him before he mived. I will get pictures of each fender and you can see what I have.
  2. I have a lot of parts I picked up and most are NOS, many are in the box or have part numbers attached. The problem is I don't have a way of looking up these parts. How can I find out what they fit? I didn't get them for a project, I was just helping a guy that was moving and needed them gone right away.
  3. When you guys told me of the rarity of this advertising, I took high resolution pictures of each page. I have been cleaning up the images so they are better than the original prints I started with. If someone wants prints of any of the pages, I can reproduce the same size, also larger, or smaller sizes. If interested let me know.
  4. Really like this picture on the Buick and Packard comparison flip charts. Fun to Photoshop it.
  5. Hope someone gets them that really appreciates they. They have been in storage for the 15 years since I've had them and probably since 1938 from the previous owner. Only now are they seeing the light of day. I also found a few NOS parts in original Buick boxes. Have to find out what they fit.
  6. I don't know what they are worth so, per suggestion I put them on eBay. Their are 5 auctions, one for each vehicle that is being compared. http://www.ebay.com/itm/201221834734?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/201221837171?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/201221859439?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/201221861363?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/201221863916?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 These are each of the auctions for the Buick Literature. I started each for $.99 with no reserve so I will take Bob's advice and let the people decide.
  7. Didn't mean to wast your time. Was told by the Buick Club this would be the best place to learn about this piece since they had never seen this particular one. They said people on this site were very knowledgeable and if anyone would know, I could find them here. Sorry again.
  8. I don't know for sure. I like automobile items but am not attached to this. My dad was good friends with the man that had these items and I knew him all my life. That is why I have hung on to this. I like things finding good homes for items, if I don't want to keep. Some of this is in excellent condition and other pages has some damage. I don't know much about this type of material, but like you, I like to have items related to what I own. I have had Buick's in the past but have none now. I am unemployed right now, so I have been considering selling items I would not have before. If items are not worth much I would probably keep them, if they have some value I would consider selling.
  9. 1937 Buick Sales Floor Literature. I found this flip chart sales floor tool from 1937 in a house I bought from a family, who's father worked at Buick garage in Freeport, Illinois. I included a few pages from the sales tool. I don't know anything about it but thought this would be the place to find the people with some knowledge on this. Please let me know anything you might know. I found quite a few other Buick and other car related items in the house. This was after a 2 day auction and I found the leftovers. This was one of the leftovers. The pages are almost 23" high and a little over 15" wide.
