  1. Did it come from Indianapolis? It looks a lot like this 1937 Buick Century coupe: https://www.classicdigest.com/cars/buick/century/128021
  2. One night at 0200 the horn of our '39 went off. Not much fun. I had replaced the old rubber insulation already. I suspect a bit of moisture making the connection. After that I installed a battery switch and after arrival back home, the routine is to switch off the battery.
  3. Better image, same article here: https://cdnc.ucr.edu/?a=d&d=LAH19211008.2.486&e=-------en--20--1--txt-txIN--------1
  4. Go here: https://www.fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html and search: Buick aero car There's only one hit. The 1921 story says it has a 6 cylinder Buick motor plus a propellor. Has reached 65 mph. 'Airplane car" built in L.A. Includes a murky photo.
  5. AH3899 has been for sale on New Zealand's Trademe in recent months. https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/specialist-cars/other/listing/2863908818?bof=2cDAha0f Price being asked probably reflects the investment that has been made in it.
  6. There is a conversion chart here 27 is the number on your 2nd image. That link says Globe 27 is a match for AC 86 among others. Bob's Automobilia catalog says AC 86 suits 1929-1937 Buick. Check out one of your friends with one of those Buicks.
  7. If you aren't after white walls, go to your local tire shop and ask to see what 650 x 16 light truck tires they have on offer. I like our 650 x 16 "light truck" Bridgestones. Go tubeless if you can because the inner ribs on the radial tires damage the tubes.
  8. Do you have a standard gas tank cap or a replacement with a tighter seal? Cars have been known to grind to a halt if air can't get into the tank as the petrol is drawn by the motor.
  9. www.bobsautomobilia.com has "GM" key blanks ignition $5 https://bobsautomobilia.com/electrical/1934-63-gm-ignition-key-blank-.-kb-354/ and trunk & glove box $4.50. https://bobsautomobilia.com/electrical/1934-63-gm-trunk-glove-box-lock-key-.-kb-354r/ Surprised there is a difference. Then back to the local hardware store. TS
  10. BUICK CLUB OF AMERICA JUDGING HANDBOOK Appendix X, page 25 (PDF image 27) page 25 claims 1931 early Olive Green 1931 late Black some parts black. http://www.buickclub.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/bca_judging_manual.pdf
  11. No such springs on our. There is no cushioning if you drop the lid.
  12. Re-vulcanised motor mounts fixed the vibration on ours at 50 mph.
  13. I hesitate to chip in. But do you have the original style filler cap that lets air in as fuel is drawn by the motor? If the fuel cap seals the tank, cars have been known to be starved of fuel.
  14. Your description matches a problem I had once. The carburettor & heat spacer (there is a better name) weren't secured to the manifold tightly enough. Air got in through the tiny gap. Ran smooth at a steady speed, but to accelerate up a gentle climb or to leave town for the open road it was a really rough ride.
