I can only guess it is not a Holden body and was owned by the Army or at least the State Department or General Services Administration. MacArthur was reported to have had Packards and Cadillacs at various points during the War. If only he was still around to tell us if he liked the Buick the best, huh? Buick did put out information on how many cars they sold overseas, tho, so the next question is: Is it RH or LH drive? If it is LH drive, there's little way to tell; however Terry Dunham of Apopka, FL has all the Buick records (or at least a bunch of them) so maybe he could answer the question. Go to the Buick Club of America site and post the question to him. Maybe he looks in on that thread, as he used to be VP of BCA. With the serial number he can tell you where it was built and what week and month, however. He does charge for that service.<p>[ 06-16-2001: Message edited by: Dynaflash8 ]
