  1. Australian built Buick's of that era had electric wipers from the factory. GHM used a 6V Bosch wiper motor
  2. Australia made bodies from scratch, due the import taxes of the time. GM Holden made bodies for a lot of brands (not just GM). Are different in detail from USA Fisher TJ Richards (Chrysler) was another major local Au body builder
  3. 1936 Pontiac fast back style (or a close GM cousin. Buick would be model 47). Vent cowl looks GM style Look at the pressing in the firewall on this--> https://www.grautogallery.com/vehicles/2118/1936-Pontiac-Silverstreak Not many 1930's GM Holden bodies in NZ. GM New Zealand assembled in Petone, Wellington using imported Fisher bodies For that shell "free" may be on the high side price!
  4. Does the car have the rings on the intake? https://bobsautomobilia.com/manifold-parts/intake-manifold-pilot-ring-1934-53-s.40-50-.-mp-343/ Other threads https://forums.aaca.org/topic/297744-1937-248ci-intake-man-gland-rings/ https://forums.aaca.org/topic/117403-straight-8-exhaust-manifold-gasket-leak47super/
  5. Pontiac? Has a GM look about it https://www.enginebuildermag.com/2014/11/pontiacs-straight-8s/ https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/pontiac-straight-8-vin.1108282/ Olds?
  6. May be that the (dash) gauge is faulty. Have you tried putting different ohm's to it, from a different source
  7. You are replying to a thread from 2013 Does your car have a 248/263 or 320 engine?
  8. Looks to be the same design as 1939 Buick. A 1 year only design. Where I am now I do not have access to my Buick parts book to check if the same part number Edit Here is an image of a cable i bought in 2009 for $50. Part 1308935 (not checked if correct) Unfortunately it got lost in (friends) storage
  9. From that web site The styling just does not make it. The less said about the pseudo Royce grill the better
  10. "1938 Dodge Fargo. Real barn find, still in barn! $5,500.00"" Maybe if the b-in-law had not lost the barn he would have fixed it 😊
  11. Looking good. Better with the removal of those large orange indicators and better placement of the rego plate.
  12. The new post by mehdi was made a few hours ago. Other posts are from 2010 Car looks to be in a junk yard and has plates that may be in the Middle East. A car that old will be hard to get back on the road. The engine & transmission may not be orginal Mu suggestion is to look for a better car
  13. Also ask in https://forums.aaca.org/forum/60-buick-pre-war/ More Buick people will read
