  1. I'm looking for the plastic escutcheon / riser used with the window cranks and door handles on a 1942 Buick Special 40A (48S family sedan). There is part of one left on the window crank of my car as seen in the picture. Even a picture of a whole one would help. Thanks Tom
  2. I’m looking for 1942 Ford and Chevy plastic interior door handles and window cranks for my collection. I have read that these were used on all Ford and Chevys in 1942 but have never seen one. I’m also interested in plastic door handles and window cranks used on other 1942 cars.tom imig thomasimig@gmail.com
  3. Some or all 1942 Buick Special 40As and 1942 Chevrolets used interior steel core plastic door handles and window regulators. They used the same Fisher body as the 1942 Pontiacs. Were plastic door handles and window regulators used in any 1942 Pontiacs?

  5. Buick introduced a positive crankcase ventilation system (PCV) in 1941 that had a tube running from the top of valve cover to the air intake for the carburetors. This was also used on the 1942 models but by the time they came out Buick recommended that the PCV system be converted back to the pre 1941 system that required removing the tube from the top of the valve cover to the carburetor air intake. The shop manual describes how to do this and states that the new system caused "coking" of the carburetors. What exactly was meant by the term coking?
  6. 1941 Buick sedanets were made in both A series (118" wheelbase) and B series (121" wheelbase).
  7. The nov 1941 buick magazine mentions that some plastic door handles and window cranks were being used in the 1942 buicks.
  8. This is not a blackout model as it has no H before the model year and was sold on November 7, 1941.
  9. I bought a well preserved 1942 buick in the fall of 2020 from the second owner. It is a 118” wheel base special 2 dr sedanet. I was surprised to find it had plastic interior door handles, window and vent window cranks (see attached picture). It also has the same trunk bezel as my 1941 buick special 2dr sedanet (121” wheel base) except the upper part on the ‘42 bezel is black and chrome plated on the ‘41. I’m curious if others have a ‘42 buick with any of these features.
  10. Do you have nov 2010? tom imig
  11. What oil filter should i use in my 1941 buick special?
  12. I need a rotor and distributor cap for my 1926 pierce arrow model 80. Tom Imig 913-302-0518 thomasimig@gmail.com
  13. Are the front fenders for a Hawk GT and a 1956 Golden Hawk interchangeable?
  14. I would like to know what car this came from. It has a Stewart Warner speedometer with P33751 stamped on the back.
