    Trying to figure out what this car is

    I have came across Holdens in Kenya & Malawi. Were also sold in South Africa with Chev badges, where this car may have come from. When I lived is South Africa for a few years a guy at the same company had a "Chev with 350 auto" . Took a while to convince him it was built in Aussie and not USA. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holden https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statesman_(automobile) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holden_Brougham

    1934 Buick series 50 brake components

    Have not looked at my parts book, but expect series 50 is not the same as series 60 & 90 Are you going to keep the hydraulics and get the emergency brake going again? {That is what I would do} 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/

    1937 BUICK REDFERN

    Great looking car. 😊 There have been other mid-late 1930's Buick with coachbuilt bodies here on aaca.org, but most(all?) have been 2 door drop heads (Maltby, Cartlon, Lancefeild). And some from Eu (Van den Plas & others) Links---> http://www.coachbuild.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=363&t=3025 https://forums.aaca.org/topic/141479-looking-for-the-1937-oldsmobile-l37-convertible-sedan-maltby-bodied/ http://www.carsceneinternational.com/maltby-body-works-sandgate-ken/

    Buick Eight Special Model 41 1939 War History

    Do you need complete seats or just seat covers? From the photos look like the car has seats For the dash do you need the sheet metal or just the instrument cluster, glove box lid, radio grille etc? Send photos to Dave. Will make it clearer what you need. And we like photos also

    Need help with British tire date code.

    Could be from the 1930's. Tread patterns change over time The number may be a mould number / factory ID https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-x-1938-9-Dunlop-FORT-Original-Car-Tyre-Adverts-Vintage-Auto-Tire-Print-ADS-/151051244698 https://www.google.com/search?q=dunlop+tyres+1930's&client=firefox-b&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjw-eb8-fjeAhVvoYsKHQ-ND4gQsAR6BAgEEAE&biw=1366&bih=613 Hope you are/were not driving on those tyres

    39 Buick linkage problem

    And others in the Buick must have thought the same, as this a 1 year only design. 1940 & later stayed design the same for years

    Buick Eight Special Model 41 1939 War History

    Thanks for the data plate images. The car was made in Flint, MI, USA (from the chassis number/engine) and probably sold via GM EU. Or maybe assembled in EU, given the lack of a trim code and the data plate stamped "in" and not "out" from the back. But does not mean is was used by military in WW2 (either side) Body 1212 is near the start of production in Sept 1938. Paint color 541 is carlsbad black (a 1940 code). In 1939 carlsbad black was code 530 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Motors_Europe What internal parts do you want? Photos?

Thread ---> http://forums.aaca.org/topic/206688-dave-tachney/ And https://bobsautomobilia.com/ Does the car still have the 248ci straight 8? Somewhere I have an image of a 1939 in Netherlands with a Russian 4 cylinder truck engine.
