  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.

  16. I have tried to send a reply to 1927chevy regarding some 1922-24 studebaker transmissions that I have. The first time I replied to 1927chevy through the forum I received a response. Since then, every time I try to send a reply message, I receive a message that delivery failed. How might I be able to resolve this problem. Thank you Tom Imig
  17. I owned a 1948 Cadillac 60-S several years ago and reupholstered using the 10 wail Gray Bedford cloth that was identical to the original. I have quit a bit of this left that I no longer need. It may be used in other Cadillac models as well. If interested please call. Tom 913-302-0518

  22. I want to have a new top made for my 1922 Studebaker EK but am unsure what material to use. The old top is not of any help because it is not original. I would like to hear from anyone who has a car with an original top or knows what was originally used on these cars. Thanks Tom
  23. I have a 1954 Studebaker Commander 2door hardtop that has been converted to 12v with the exception of the windshield wipers. I have a 12v motor from a 1957 Golden Hawk that will presumably bolt in. My question is whether I need to change the switch. It is wired similarly in the wiring diagram for each car. Any help will be appreciated. Tom
