  1. we are at this stage.
  2. I am doing a resto-mod on a 1937 Buick Coupe. Art Morrison chassis and Hilborn EFI Injected 401 and a 6 speed. I am just planning out the interior and I want a tachometer because of the standard transmission. So many coupes of this era just have a piece of board installed with modern gauges stuck in the middle. I hate that look. I am thinking of going to a 1940 dash with the round gauges and having a tachometer built with matching fonts. Will a '40 dash fit in a 1937?
  3. I am doing a resto-mod on a '37 46s coupe. I sold the chassis with running gear to a museum but I got 4 or 5 boxes of parts with car and may have one. Send me a PM and I will try and get you a picture over the weekend.
  4. I need the center grille medallion and the McLaughlin Buick grille emblem on my '37 Buick either replaced or restored. Does anyone have leads on either replacement/restoration?
  5. Thanks. My emblem is in that sort of condition. I would like a pristine one. NOS is too much to ask and was wondering if anybody made them like they do the "Buick 8" grill logo.
  6. I copied this off the internet so got all the other pics too. Are the 1937 and 38 badges the same? Does anyone produce reproduction ones?
  7. The only way to truly value something is well advertised auction. Put it on eBay at a very low reserve and let the auction run as long as possible. Take the maximum number of pics in the largest format you can post. Have all the data available including body tags, engine number and any documentation for prior work done. A painted engine does not equal a rebuilt engine with no proof. It sounds like you have inherited the life's work of an enthusiast.
  8. https://vancouver.craigslist.org/rds/cto/d/surrey-1939-buick-coupe-fiat-spider-1979/6820964347.html Asking $4500 Canadian. About $3400 USD. Rougher but no takers for weeks.
  9. I know many people frown on resto-mods but I like win-win situations. My chassis will be restored and used as a static display at the Reynolds Museum in Edmonton Alberta. I gave them a deal to help defray shipping costs and frankly I'm tickled pink about the outcome. My wife has nieces in Edmonton so I even get to visit it. https://reynoldsmuseum.ca/ Check out the link its a pretty cool institution.
  10. Sold. It's going to a very good home.
  11. Which model and series"? I am assuming larger cars would have a different one.
  12. Chassis from a 1937 Buick businessman's coupe. What you see is what you get. Gas tank is shot. Frame is near perfect. Engine/transmission/rear end are parts or core. Will not separate or sell parts. Location Vancouver, Canada. Will deliver to Washington State or maybe even Portland when the weather gets better for cost of trailer rental and diesel. I like road trips. $800 USD. PM me here. I can't store it long and I would hate to scrap it.
  13. I am finally done with the frame from my 1937 46 coupe. I will be posting it for sale in the classifieds. Gas tank is shot but the rest is pretty good. View the mechanicals as cores only as I never tried to start it.
  14. My metal working guy is pretty darn creative. I had to share.
  15. I got my horn button retention ring re-chromed and got a reproduction center medallion. Mr Hinson supplied the contact plate and I got the spring and insulation from Bob's Automobilia . The chrome is flawless I got the horn ring and the retention ring back in under a month from a plater in Victoria BC. Next step is send it off to get the plastic ring put in.
