IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THE COVER I NEED WILL FIT A 1937-41 BUICK 302 MOTOR. IF ANY ONE OUT THERE HAS SOMETHING LIKE THAT, OR PRIHIBITING YEARS, WOULD BE IN COPMLIANCE WITH THAT CAR, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

WOULD LIKE TO RESTORE IT TO IT'S ORIGINAL.

THANKS, 1940 BUICK

never seen a stock Buick of that era with a "302" motor.

The Buicks we owned from that era came with only two choices of power-plants, depending on how much you wanted to spend. Both were straight eights. The cheaper one was physically considerably smaller than the more expensive one. The cheaper motor came in the Special and Super - this was only about 250 cu in. My dad always preferred the "big" Buick straight eight, of about 320 cu. in. Trouble us, Buick didnt start using "insert" type connecting rod bearings until the early 1950's. That may be why someone removed the authentic engine and installed a "302".

I would think that if you have a 302 series Chevrolet motor in your pre-war Buick, you would be free to use any cover you like. Modifiying stock cars is not my personal "thing", but hey, it's your car.
