Hi All, My father didn't live long enough to complete his 1930 Buick Model 47. The car is all apart and I decided in October of 2020 to move forward with the brakes and steering. He had completed the frame, leaf springs, and axles. I believe the motor was restored years ago. I do have a few pdf files scanned from microfilm given to my father by GM years ago covering Buicks from 1929-1932 which I will share. Any one have any information on parts or any details on this car I am interested. We will need a carburetor down the road.
I put up a bunch of picks of the project so far. As you can see I have located, and cleaned many of the brake parts and most are staged on the car. At the moment, we are having to get the trans ready to stage. It's not in great condition having been dry for many years. I built a tool to take the bend out of brake back plate and pull the steering wheel. My brother build a tool to reinstall brake return spring, turn the generator on our drill press and a jig to hold the steering wheel so I can make a new wood grip for it. These projects are in progress.
