1924 model 45 parts needed

Recommended Posts

I am looking for 2 sheet metal parts for a 1924 Buick 45. One goes across the top of the engine covering the valve train. The second one goes on the rearward side of the starter generator. I am also looking for a headlight bar. Does anybody know of any available?

Thank you

Thanks for the zingers as I had forgotten many of them.

Thanks for getting back to the fellow near by me with the 1924-45. That was the same one I bid on at an auction in 2010. Extremely well preserved or great, correct older restoration. It had been in a museum for years before the lawyer, who's collection this was in, had it sold off. I had stopped at $16,000 since they did not convince me that they had the car running recently. I figured that if there was an engine problem it might cost $6K or better for a rebuild. The fellow who purchased the car at $18,600. found the engine to be locked up. He told me he had the S/G rebuilt at around $1,000. Then he had asked for Forum advice about the issue, which we all participated in. The only things I noted as missing at the time of the first auction was the S/G cover, the spark plug cover and headlight tie bar. The then owner of the car came to my house and bought a tie bar I had gotten on e-bay when I bought a spare headlight. It was to be for a 25 standard but turned out to be for a 1924 big series with the Osgood lens. Then last winter I heard that the car was to be sold at a bankruptcy auction. Auction day it was snowing plus a 1 1/2 hour drive and I was feeling sick so I did not attend. The buyer has already repaired the problems (water in #5 cylinder caused the lock up). So a cylinder hone, new rings and head gasket has the car back on the road. I have the photos I took of the car in 2010 then the bankruptcy auction views with parts strewn about the garage. Note the photo of the rear bumper showing the valve cover and water pump on the floor. Don't you love Auction organization?

I still need to get in touch with the new owner as we have Dave Stratton's 1924-45 about a mile away from me. Need to compare notes.
