  14. I wanted to know where i can get a good look at what a fully restored car like this looks like because i have not been able to find a pic online of the X8 95.Alsso i really need a front grille.How many tail lights did this car have.just one with the number plate or 2?Guffin im confused abt the design of the tail light as i have come across two on ebay.Also the headlamps i believe were 2 large and 2 small am i correct when i say this? Karan
  15. Im located in India.I have my younger brother in philadelphia who can co ordinate if required.It is a pretty rare car.My email id is Karant@gmail.com and i would appreciate any type of help in restoring this beauty to its best quality. Karan
  16. Guffin I tried looking at ebay for the headlamn bar and headlamp but did not get a match.if u could send me the link i would be highly obliged.I am also in need of the front grille for the car as mine was stolen while transporting the vehicle.The grille is imprtnt and urgent. Thanks Karan
  17. Guffin It is a 1931 Buick and not 1932 sadly.The chassis no is. 2486359 and the Model is X8-95 and it is a convertible 7 seater with a straight 8 engine.I am looking for parts such as radiotor cap with emblem,front grill,headlights,tail lights,headlight rod with monogram,and hub caps/wheels caps, and any other original parts.the distance between the 2 axels is 134" thereby making it a series 90 i suppose.what can you tell me abt the history of this car and the value? where can i source parts from.
  18. Guffin, Its a soft top/open car.It has a straight 8 engine,RHD,it was said that Mahatma Gandhi did a tour of a certain area of India on this very car,but unfortunately there is no hard proof to substantiate the claim.There is no diving window.I think its either a X85 or X85 9?? The RC says its a 40bhp car chassis number is 2646102 and engine no 1248873.Where can i get proper historical data on this car.It maybe a X95 phaeton since its a open top??what do you feel.
  19. Thanks a lot Guffin and Mark I will provide you the details very soon so that i can get a clearer picture.Also i would be obliged if you could guide or tell me where i can buy parts for the car such as head lights, door knobs etc. Karan
  20. I own a 1931 Buick Straight 8 export model.Its a 7 seater.I wanted to know where i can get historical and specific data for the same car.As in number of cars produced,still exisiting and any other useful data.Looking for help from ypu people. Thanks Karan
  21. my plan was to restore it,use it maybe for a couple of rallies and then sack it off,the person doing the restoration gave an approx price of $40,000 for sale after it is fully done.It is a seven seater right hand drive,it will take some more time before it can be restored.what do you suggest how should i go about it,ive already spent $5000 on restoration and im estimating another $2000-$2500 towards restoration.

  23. I own a 1931 Buick X85 9 series,staright 8, 7 seater,i would like to know how many of these cars were produced and exist as of today and any relevant history about the car.The car is under restoration and i am also looking for parts for the same to make it as original as possible,headlights,handles,tyres,etc most of the original parts will be looked into by me if there is anybody who has/knows somebody who has the same.What would a fully restored car like this sell for.?
