  1. Buick's in NZ can be found! The other thread on this car --> https://forums.aaca.org/topic/345181-1922-buick-22-4-35-tourer/ Hopefully will get merged
  2. Welcome aboard. carjam.co.nz lists 2 only 1922 Buick's registered in NZ. But carjam data is not always correct. You can email nzbuick at yahoo.co.nz and ask Graham to be put you on the NZ Buick mailing list. A e-magazine is issued every month or so The Australian PreWar Buick e-magazine is another to subscribe to. Ask John at prewarbuicks at gmail.com Have asked the moderators to merge your 2 threads
  3. Will be an impressive car when restored. Value can depend on the condition of the wooden frame. What is the location? From 2018 another thread on a 1936 series 90 {90L vs 91 for car in post 1)
  4. The position of the dip stick puts the block as 1940 or later. Do you have photos of the transmission? 1938 and before stick shift. 1939 and later column change. 1939 transmission is different to 1940 and later The Norman Tims car by any chance? https://www.conceptcarz.com/z18217/norman-timbs-special.aspx https://www.thedrive.com/news/24870/california-wildfire-claims-vintage-car-collection-including-1-of-1-1948-norman-timbs-special https://www.ajc.com/news/national/malibu-wildfires-destroy-norman-timbs-special-other-rare-cars/TJ2EIxNg0wx3dLCeIc7TIJ/ Would get more response in https://forums.aaca.org/forum/12-buick-buysell/
  5. Congratulations of your first long drive ☺️ Time to make it legal a for drive up the hills to the homstead. Post 1 of this thread was Dec 3 2009.
  6. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1939-buick-roadmaster-phaeton-convertible-81c/ And the 1941 as Matt's info above ht astps://www.oldforgemotorcars.com/vehicles?q[make_eq]=Buick
  7. Did they use the dual carb manifold from 1941 1942 Buicks? We like photo's 70 years on the carb's could be anything now. Several threads with good content on dual carb straight eight Buicks
  8. Buying over the internet from 1000's of miles away need to be sure the seller/consigner is the real seller/owner is not some scamer just reposting some other car advertisement from the web. I note you have had some one to physically look at the car. Take consideration of the comments Very likley such a car would be know to Buick Club of America members, even in northern Michigan. Convertibles are desirable so prices get "reduced" for a reason . Extract below is from the BCA 2005 Judging manual. For 1948 does not list "L" (Linden NJ), but that may be a BCA error. The first digits engine serial do not represent the model year. Some times they do, but more by chance. The series is stamped ahead or after the main number: it changed to after for 1946 production. Link--->https://www.teambuick.com/reference/ident_engine_til_52.php The engine in that car is not 1948. But not unusual or a concern to many people The engine number stamping does not look right being on top/right of pad. The stampings I have seen are more in the centre of the pad. Stamping of the series not always in line, but have seen one that far out of alignment. I would be wary where the ID tags are secured with cheap rivets from a hardware store. Data tag's never had washer/river to fix it in place Keep looking:- will be other 56C in the market at some time Edit parts https://bobsautomobilia.com/ https://www.oldbuickparts.com/ https://www.fusickautomotiveproducts.com/ and others
