  1. Here is some 1941 paint code info from the "Buick for 1941: Prices, Colors, Terms, Equipment, Accessories" booklet revised January 23,1941.
  2.

  3. There were three colors available: black, white, and tan depending on the model. The Buick sales code was shown on the order form but the service code was stamped on the trim line of the cowl tag:
  4. I've only seen the year on 1913 and 1914 plates.
  5. Fisher body tag decode: BODY BY FISHER ST 79 4BR35 X 263615 BDY TR 62J AM6 54L 54U PNT 06E 230723 4BR35 4 = Buick B = B-body platform (C-body platform was used for the Electra) R = Estate Wagon (series) 35 = 4-door station wagon X = Fairfax, KS 263615 = body number Trim 62J = Dark Camel Tan Cloth and Vinyl AM6 = seat option code = SEAT ASM, FRT SPLIT W/CTR ARM REST (60-40) Paint code 54L54U = solid Light Yellow 06E = build date = June (06) 1979, fifth week (E) 230723 = batch or broadcast number, also found on buildsheet Buick VIN decode: 4R35K9X163358 4 = Buick R = Estate Wagon (series) 35 = 4-door station wagon K = 403 V8 by Oldsmobile (L80) 9 = 1979 X = Fairfax, KS 163358 = sequential number, range for Fairfax in 1979 was 100,001 to 164,120

  10. As Matt said, the engine number is from a Special. 44194020 4 = Series 40/Special 4194020 = sequential number, range for 1941 was 4,074,859 to 4,457,940
  11. For 1930-1934 the first two digits of the job number are the last two digits of the model year. Job 30122 is for a 1930 model 68.
  12. 13467033 = frame serial number 1 = built at Flint, MI 3467033 = sequential number, range for 1939 was 3,388,547 to 3,596,806 BUICK MOTOR DIVISION GENERAL MOTORS CORPORATION FLINT MICH. 1939 MOD. 81 STYLE No 39-4819 K BODY No 2305 TRIM No 718 PAINT No 530 MO.

  13. The frame number is correct for 1937. Buick didn't start using a numerical plant code at the beginning of the frame number until 1938. In 1937, Flint didn't use a plant code, C was used for South Gate, CA and L for Linden, NJ. In 1938 it was 1 for Flint, 2 for South Gate, and 3 for Linden. 3191909 = frame serial number, correct for a Flint built car range was 2,999,497 to 3,219,847 for 1937 so C4560698 would not be a valid Buick frame serial number for 1937 BUICK-MOTOR-CO.

  14. Over many years and from many sources I have compiled a list that covers 1980 and earlier. The best source for 1963 and earlier is the new car order forms as the option codes on those are the same as those used on the trim tag,.
