  1. The stamped OMP are accessory option codes: O=grained garnish molding P= Limousine dictaphone sorry don't have M It's not unusual for the Buick model number not to be stamped. Since Fisher used the body style number, I'm guessing that was more important to Fisher since they made the bodies. I've attached some more trim tags from Fisher body style 4933 cars.
  2. A = Radio and antenna C = Heater and defroster D = Windshield washer H = White wall tires U = Back-up lights
  3. 1941 MOD. 56 O.K. STYLE No. 41-4527B BODY No. 2004 TRIM No. 902 PAINT No. 560 STYLE No. 41-4527B 41 = model year Fisher body style number 4527B 4 = Buick 5 = Series 50/Super 27B = 2-door business coupe, 3-passenger BODY No. 2004 Lack of plant code means body built at Flint, MI 2004 = 2004th 4527B built at Flint TRIM No. 902 Trim 902 = Tan Canda Cloth (Mohair), available on models 41, 44, 44S, 46, 46S, 47, and 56. Replaced trim code 901 after approx. the first 1200 cars PAINT No. 560 Paint code 560 = solid Carlsbad Black The stamped O.K. are accessory option codes for the following: O = Grained Garnish Molding K = Heater & Defroster
  4. As mentioned, the 8 just indicates the last digit of the model year. Adding the last digit of the model year to the paint code seems to be something done mostly by the South Gate, CA plant. The standard wheel color would be Aztec Green with French White stripe. After a short production run for the 1942 model year, there were no Buicks built by GM of Canada until the 1951 model year.
  5. I have a spreadsheet list of option codes that I've compiled over the years. If you send me a PM with your email address I will send you the 1961-1962 data. I don't know the difference in the rear floors, it looks like in the Master Body Parts Book they have different part numbers.
  6. 8G1032217 8 = Electra 225 G = 1960 1 = built at Flint, MI 032217 = sequential number, starting at 001001 for Flint STYLE 60-4867 BODY FB 1782 TRIM 869 PAINT VV3 ACC. B E I6 N7 U6 4867 = Fisher body style number 4 = Buick 8 = Electra 225 67 = 2-door convertible FB = body built at Flint, MI 1782 = 1782nd 4867 built at Flint Trim 869 = Red and White Leather with Bucket Front Seats, available on style 4867 Paint code VV = solid Tampico Red 3 = White convertible top Accessory option codes: B = Heater and defroster E = Rear seat speaker I6 = Easy Eye Glass N7 = Air Conditioner U6 = Power Vents
  7. 04C STYLE 61-4035 BODY FB 4512 TRIM 015 K PAINT HH ACC. A B I7 K7 H 04C = body build date = April (04) 1961, third week (C) 4035 = Fisher body style number 4 = Buick 0 = Special V8 35 = 4-door station wagon, 2-seat FB = body built at Flint, MI 4512 = 4512nd 4035 built at Flint Trim 015 = Blue Vinyl available on styles 4035, 4045 K = I don't have an option code for K, but an option code in this location usually indicates something for the trim shop, so I'm guessing this is for K6 which is Foamtex custom padded seat cushions Paint code HH = solid Bimini Blue Accessory option codes: A = Turbine Drive automatic transmission B = Heater and defroster I7 = Easy Eye tinted windshield K7 = Instrument panel safety cover H = Back-up lights
  8. Here are some 1952 model 52 tags. In addition to rivets being used to attach the tag, it appears that the tag in your picture has been modified to read: 1952 MOD. 52-59 STYLE No 59-4519 when it should say 1952 MOD. 52-52 STYLE No 52-4519 This was probably done because, as Al said, some one replaced the original 1951 model 59 trim tag with a 1952 model 52 trim tag.
  9. In 1952 trim 51 was Dark Grey Cloth and Light Grey Bolster and available only on model 52 (style 4519). Model 59 had different trim codes. You can find my trim code list here: https://forums.aaca.org/topic/231704-1932-1975-buick-trim-codes-by-model/ Some 1951 and 1952 model 59 Ionia tags attached for comparison.
  10. That model is listed on the parts catalog for 1927. I have some serial numbers for a couple 1927 model 49 cars. If you have any old McLaughlin Buick Club of Canada Accelerator magazines, here are the references: MBCC Accelerator, May 1974, Vol. 3, Issue 6, page 11 MBCC Accelerator, May/June 1985, Vol. 14, Issue 6, page 17
  11. ST 73 4EY87 FL1 281966 BDY TR 684 54 T PNT 05B AM6 Fisher body style number = 4EY87 4 = Buick E = E-body platform Y = Riviera 87 = 2-door hardtop coupe FL1 = body built at Flint MI 218966 = body number Trim 684 = Neutral Cloth with 60/40 Front Seat, available on style 4EY87 (sales code 364) Paint code 54 = Autumn Gold Metallic (sales code K) T = Sandalwood vinyl top (sales code 7) 05B = build date = May (05) 1973, second week (B) Option codes AM6 = 60/40 Front Seats
  12. If you post a picture of the trim tag I can decode it. There were two codes, the sales code on the Buick literature and the production code used by Fisher body on the trim tag. For example Harvest Gold paint was Buick sales code M and Fisher code 60. For trim, Saddle Cloth with 60/40 front seat in the Riviera was Buick sales code 366 and Fisher code 686. I think most online paint references use the Fisher codes and most interior places use the Buick sales codes.
  13. Paint code 575 = solid Ontario Maroon Trim code 107 = sorry don't have Canadian trim codes for 1935 This car was built in Canada by GM of Canada and is not an export car. The production number of 11 export cars you are referring to is for cars built in the US at Flint Michigan. GM of Canada production figures are not include in the production numbers for Flint.

  14. 1948 MOD 56-C STYLE No 48-4567X BODY No L 9479 TRIM No 44 PAINT No 31 Fisher body style number 4567X 4 = Buick 5 = Series 50/Super 67 = 2-door convertible, 6-passenger, X = with hydraulic window lifts/seat/top BODY No L 9479 L = Linden, NJ 9479 = 9,479th style 4567 built at Linden Trim 44 = Tan Bedford Cord and Red Leather, available on model 56C only Paint code 31 = solid Carlsbad Black 34887377 = frame serial number 3 = Linden, NJ 4887377 = sequential number, range for 1948 was 4801266 to 5020983 47423505 = engine serial number of replacement engine 4742350 = sequential number, range for 1947 was 4,737,740 to 4,999,880 5 = Series 50/Super 50932805 = engine serial number of original engine 5093280 = sequential number, range for 1948 was 4999881 to 5220971 5 = Series 50/Super The original engine has been replaced and a previous owner failed to follow the correct procedure for changing the serial number on the title when the engine serial number is used as the legal ID number. This is very common when people don't know that the engine serial number can be used as the VIN. Also, the trim tag has been removed and reattached with the incorrect rivets and the frame serial number plate is attached with incorrect rivets when originally it would have been attached with a certain style of screw. Was the parts car used to rebuild this car a 1947? As for the series digit (last 5) in the engine serial number not lining up with the rest of the engine serial number, it is not uncommon to see such misalignment.
  15. Just for fun, a picture of a 1959 GM of Canada serial number plate showing the car serial number and engine serial number for a Buick model 4439, same plate used by all GM of Canada divisions.
