@ElpadJudging from all of the photos you've posted and continue to post I've come to the conclusion that you have every photo of a Buick that was ever taken, plus at least ten more!!

The sad thing is that I erase them after I post them due to computer space. Don’t know how long would they keep them on this forum server.

Could that Caballero be this one?  Check the spotlight.  The last photo is after a repaint.  The car has factory air, red and white interior and power seat.

The spot lights look different. The grey car appears to have a rear view mirror attached to the spot light where as the red car has separate rear view mirror and spotlight.

I knew the owner of the grey car (Starlight Blue) that was repainted then resold.  I obtained the Blue car from an estate in Rifle, Colorado in the late 1980's.  The repaint photo came to me from that owner.  In the repaint photo, note that the spotlight and separate mirror appear to be as that in the fully restored car. The restored car does appear to have the correct factory Trailmaster spotlight.  But, one would have to trace the restored car to be sure.

This great shot really shows the evolution of body design in just two short years.  As the transition was made from the 30's to the 40's, the headlights are placed directly into the fenders instead of mounted in separate pods, and the hood begins to blend into the fenders.  By the end of the 40's, the "slab-sided" design was established and the distinction between hood and fenders was almost eliminated.  (Well-illustrated by the shot of the '49 convertible, just above.)
