  1. Looks good Is it a Holden(AU) or Fisher(USA) body? Will(would) have a data plate on the firewall
  2. To me an old Hydroplane boat on a 6 wheel trailer May be jetboat style propulsion https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jetboat https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydroplane_(boat)
  3. Australia is extremely hard on asbestos in imported cars. They will know a Model A probably had asbestos when new or over the ~90 years
  4. For gaskets try https://www.olsonsgaskets.com/ https://bobsautomobilia.com/engine/ Documentation http://oldcarbrochures.com/searchresults.html?cx=partner-pub-1753017650679806%3Auj2pyqfgo4u&cof=FORID%3A10&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=buick+1931&sa=Search&siteurl=oldcarbrochures.com%2F&ref=www.oldcarmanualproject.com%2F&ss=3407j1558381j10&siteurl=oldcarbrochures.com%2F&ref=www.oldcarmanualproject.com%2F&ss=3407j1558085j10
  5. The identity has been established in the other thread Looks to be a nice car https://forums.aaca.org/topic/357085-1931-buick-how-to-start-it/
  6. So where is/did you find number 29715583? Car looks very good. Is a Model 67 (not 90) Close up photos on the engine from both sides?
  7. I have never come across an Au Buick Club forum. All the states have (very) separate Buick Clubs You could try asking via the Au pre-war newsletter (from QLD). Joining the AU pre-war email list is free https://buickcarclubaustralia.com/aussie-pre-war-buicks/
  8. Are you a member of an AU Buick club? Will be workshops is Australia who could rebuild, but do not know any personally. https://www.buickcarclub.org.au/ https://www.buickcarclub.org.au/pages/6
  9. Better to make a new post here-->https://forums.aaca.org/forum/60-buick-pre-war/ Photos would help get answers Worth measuring the wheel base and looking for the engine serial number No VIN's in 1931. VIN's started in 1950's and not standardised until 1980's I cannot see 29715583 fitting in with chassis/frame numbers or engine numbers of 1931 (Ref BCA judging manual)
  10. The best source of pre war Buick parts is Dave Tacheny in Champlin, MN. He specializes in 1936-1941 Buick parts. He is old school:- no email. The best way to contact him is to call him between 4 and 7 pm Central at 763-427 3460. You can also write him a letter. His address is 11949 Oregon Ave N., Champlin, MN 55316.  http://forums.aaca.org/topic/206688-dave-tachney/ You may also need to work on the torque tube-drive shaft is the length of a 1938 transmission is different to 1940 or later. 1940 and later were the same for several years.
  11. This is know major issue when importing cars into Australia. Google "notice No. 2017/21 " Australian Border force will check and have been know to have cars "disassembled" to prove one way or other if suspicious Your buyer (or you) need to be in contact with a company/person/shipper who experience with importing old cars into Australia Sample from Google (links may/may not work) https%3A%2F%2Fkeysfreight.com.au%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2019%2F09%2FACN-201721.pdf Read this (a few years old now) --> https://ferraris-online.com/australia-asbestos-an
  12. You will need a 1937 intake-exhaust manifold as intakes starting from 1939 have a step. Repro exhaust manifold are made To build a new engine for your car, based on a later block/head, will need various parts from a 1937 S40 engine
  13. Pull them outside and give them a good clean. Will be easier to sell and few hours work will be worth 100's extra. Photo graph the parts. Any rust? To me $1800 each is a little optimistic. What is V8 block for? I also note a 6 cylinder head gasket (Plymouth?). Usually these MGB's are 4 cylinder, but some are 6 cylinder and few late model have a Rover(Buick) V8 Other car for sale by the same poster https://forums.aaca.org/topic/356313-1941-plymouth-restoration-for-sale-houston-tx/?tab=comments#comment-2155701
