  3. The McLaughlin model 54 may have walnut dash. I think the disc wheels in bright red look better, but I think they were orig maroon body color. My 22-55 has Tuarc discs and under the axle flanges the paint is maroon. I may paint them bright red. John 22-6-55 Sport touring
  4. Most of the 54's came with wire wheels, the 55's were mostly wood wheels, 23" on both models. Disc wheels on a model 39 is quite rare. John 22-6-55 Sport touring
  5. The first one may be a 23 model 54 Sport roadster, should be maroon not white. The windshield is a Sport roadster (wind wings ). John 22-6-55 Sport touring

  16. Al, I think Tuarc wheels were listed as an option 1922 to 1927 or 1928, I'll check the wheel catalog. They were a $75 option in 1922. John 22-6-55 Sport touring
  17. Those look similar to the ones on a WW2 Sherman with the Ford GAA engine. John

  20. Al, I don't have a pic of it with the disc only with the standard 23" wood, I do have a pic of a 23-55 with the disc wheels, I will try to post asap. The wheel catalog I have shows a Buffalo B5/72, 32x4.5 on 22-23 models 54&55. John 22-6-55 Sport Touring
  21. The parts manual lists wheels from, Wire Wheel Corp. Buffalo NY. Dave Chambers refered to them as Houk, I think they are #5"s and they are 23". My car has disc wheels. John 22-6-55 Sport Touring
  22. Rod, The 22-54 was introduced at the January 1922 auto show and the 22-55 was introduced in May of 1922. My car #856901, was the 101st or the 201st 55 built in 1922 The pic of the 22 was part of a 3 page flyer for the car in May 22 The original is from Dave Chambers, his notations are in the upper right. Larry, The 22-54 had wind wings, the 55 did not, the wire wheels were standard on the 54, wood was standard on the 55. Good luck with your search. The 23 models would be easier to find. John 1922-6-55
  23. Larry, Have you tried the Buick Heritage Alliance? They show both the standard and master parts books as reproductions John 1922-6-55 Sport Touring
