  1. Depending on what you're going to do with the car (ie. a cosmetic vs. a full restoration) you might consider a cheap used set of tires to get the car home and move it during the restoration - and then buy a new set towards the end of the restoration. Bill McLaughlin 1929 McLaughlin Buick

  3. John: I have 29-44 (roadster) original side-curtains, if these would be any help. Bill McLaughlin 1929 Silver Anniversary Buick Newsletter Supporter off All-Together Chronological Parking
  4. Data from the Buick Motor Division (6/16/43) shows your Engine number (2398800) falls in the 5th (2377358-2405443) of 7 blocks of Standard engines produced for 1929 Buicks. Your Serial number (2278794) falls in the 5th ( 2272685-2280471) of 6 blocks of model 27 serial numbers assigned in 1929 Bill McLaughlin 1929 Silver Anniversary Buick Newsletter Supporter of All Together Chronological Parking
  5. Brian: Congratulations ! Get the 23 fired-up and we'll got for another road-trip. Bill McLaughlin 1929 McLaughlin Buick
  6. The Fisher Body Parts Price List confirms that Job number 30122 is a 30-68, 5 Pass. Coupe. Your engine number will likely be stamped on the crankcase, passenger side just above the starter (see: <https://www.29buickphotos.com/Information/ID-Plates-Stickers-etc/i-2kn2MTd>). If 30 McL-Buick's are the same as 29, there will be no serial number on a tag on the frame behind the passenger front wheel but it will be on a GM of Canada 4" x 4" plate attached to the engine side of the firewall near the oil filter on the pass. side (see: <https://www.29buickphotos.com/Information/ID-Plates-Stickers-etc/i-GqSdmkz>). Often the tags were removed to allow the heater hoses to go through the firewall. If replacing the engine with a 29, make sure you check under manifold to see that the engine hasn't already been cracked. 29's were more prone to cracking than 30's Bill McLaughlin 1929 Silver Anniversary Buick Club
  7. Patrick: If it's a 1929 Buick, as far as I know there are no factory plans of the wood available. Send me your email address and I'll send you a Welcome Package for the 1929 Silver Anniversary Buick Club where you can advertise for information on dimensions for the wood frame.

  8. Brian: I'm at OAG 20-22. Bill McLaughlin
  9. Agree with Raydurr, it appears to be a 30 Standard. You should have a serial number plate on the right side frame behind the front wheel. Bill McLaughlin 1929 Silver Anniversary BUICK Newsletter

  11. Bob: I've never found free wifi on the field at Hershey (I'm on the top of the Orange field next to the Green Field). There is paid wifi but it's something like US$10. a day - which is considerably more than Rogers CDN$5 roaming charge. Bill McL Toronto
  12. He doesn't have one. Send him a fax: +61-3-9310-5096. Bill McLaughlin 1929 McLaughlin Buick Roadster
  13. Michael: Try Don Mayton (don.maytonscars at gmail.com). He made stainless steel ones for 29 wire wheels and they may fit 30's. Take an existing nut off an go to a hardware store and find out the thread size. Bill McLaughlin 1929 McLaughlin Buick Roadster
  14. Silly question, but have you tried inflating the tires? If they have gone down over 30 years, I'd venture to say that they would hold air for a 300 mile trip on a trailer. Bill McLaughlin
  15. PM me and I'll give you the email address of GM Canada's Vintage Vehicle Dept. They should know (or can find out) as they have a 1908 McLaughlin. Bill McLaughlin 1929 McLaughlin Buick Roadster Supporter of "All Together Parking by Era"
