  1. Looking at the facebook photos this coupe identifies as a Model 36-46S Sport Coupe with Opera seat, FISHER Style 36 4477 and a production number of 1086 units. My old eyes read the body tag as Style 36 4411? which is the FISHER designation for a 2 Door Victoria Coupe with Built in Trunk. No doubt there is an explanation for this which could be as simple as my vision. There is a lot of value in the work completed and the car appears to have been a very solid original. Some additional valuable parts including a radio can be seen in the trunk. Still a fair amount of finishing work to do but that could be a nice light project for us old blokes. If you were looking at restoring a 1936 Series 40 Opera Coupe this car would save you a heap of money as the heavy lifting and expensive work certainly appears to be done.
  2. Rod, A lot of good advice has been given. Don't overlook the possibility of a heat riser issue. A lot of reading but have a look at these previous discussions 1928 Buick - Buick - Pre War - Technical - Antique Automobile Club of America - Discussion Forums ❚❚ Marvel carburetor - Buick - Pre War - Technical - Antique Automobile Club of America - Discussion Forums Buick Heat Riser Repair - Buick - Pre War - Technical - Antique Automobile Club of America - Discussion Forums 1925 Buick Standard Marvel Carburetor replacement - Buick - Pre War - Technical - Antique Automobile Club of America - Discussion Forums
  3. Serial numbers for 1936 commence at 2830899. Serial numbers for 1937 commence at 2999497 so it is a 1936 model. So I'm suggesting it's a 1936 model 91, 6 passenger four door sedan with built in trunk. Fisher style 364919.
  4. Yeah, a Buick for sure, recognise it anywhere!!
  5. G'day George, Belated welcome to the Forum, lots of good information and help to be found here. Where in Australia are you? I'm in Perth and have a 1955 Buick Super convertible. There are a number of 55's around but you are right about convertibles being a bit thin on the ground. Give us a yell if you are having trouble sourcing anything in particular for your project. Attached photo was taken at Echuca a couple of years ago at the Buick Club of Australia ( Victoria ) 50th anniversary meet.
  6. More Buick haulin in Australia!
  7. Plenty of Buicks get hauled around Australia. These photos go back to 2008 when a couple of us hauled our Buicks to a National Meet held in Queensland. The.articles were written by a visiting BCA member who was at the meet and were published in the BCA Pre War Division Newsletter..
  8. I've even found time to learn how to use my 1970's VANE engine Analyzer which I purchased for "garage art years ago".
  9. Mmaaaate, have I got a deal for you!!! PM sent
  10. From Master Parts list 1928 to 1946 Inclusive and from Master Parts 1930 to 1956. It indicates a change of part number for your dipstick to 1342302 - fits the same models.
