  1. Welcome to the forum What is your location?
  2. Engine numbers for 1937 start at 3001000 8 = 80 series 33198805 is in the 1937 range To me those numbers are not stamped in the normal Buick way. Maybe a restamped engine Chassis numbers for 1937 start at 2830899 3160662 is in the 1937 range Chassis numbers for 1938 start at 3219848
  3. Only 1939 will fit-work. As other posts it could be rebuilt In 1939 their are 2 ratios. Was a design change in production 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/ Where are you located? We like photo's
  4. Going to be hard to sell without photos. Unless you accept a very low offer
  5. With a GM Flint body tag it is USA production. GM Canada have a different style of tag and different numbering system What is the engine number (near the distributor) And we like photos.
  6. For 1939's S40 & S60 interior on Canadian built cars is different pattern to USA Fisher. Most noticeable on the door cards. Do not know about the larger series. And Australian built Buick's, with a local Holden body, use the Canadian interior pattern. But the interior would be Au made to increase the local manufactured content
  7. A close up of that data plate would be interesting. And the engine serial number. Canadian engine start with W (Walkerville Ontario) USA Flint & Canadian Buick's of this era have a different numbering method I suspect when the metal was rebuilt it was not 100% to the original dimensions & shape Seems to be several interesting large series Buick's of the 30's in India
  8. Original post was close to a year ago (Aug 22 2018) As a guess owner has sold it by now

  10. Location? Photos? A few hundred maybe. Not thousands
  11. To Bob top photo looks about from cars I have seen and photos I have. Early 39's had circular metal over the spare. One of my cars has that. Then they seemed to do timber as above. Have not seem the trim in the tool tray - valance area, but that may be correct. Have seem cars with a plywood cover in tool tray area, but always considered that was home made. Where is Earl when we need him?
  12. The weekend after the BCA annual meet in Strongesville, Cleveland OH. So you may get a few stragglers from that. Maybe even me, depending on flights https://forums.aaca.org/topic/303008-2020-buick-club-national-meet-strongsville-ohio-july-15-19/
  13. A photo of all of the fleet from a distance would be good. 😊
