Anybody who knows a lot about 1936 Buicks with the 320 cid engine, I would like to correspond with you. My email is Forever39buicks@aol.com, and I'll offer to do the same for anybody who needs to correspond about 1939 Buicks.  I consider myself an expert on 1939 model year.  Earl Beauchamp

For documentation






Download the 1942 Buick shop manual. All of it section by section. The pdf link does not work.

It is very comprehensive and has information that can be used with all straight 8’s.

It has more information than was included in older “Shop Manuals” before 1942-41

Hello Buick Frends,


Thanks for the information already.

The car i have is a buick from 1920 and it is made into a farm car. But this is how i fell on the story off the car, 99 years on the same farm, droven by the wife.

I love the patina and will do only the mechanics.

( low milage old lady's car :-))UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1f02.thumb.jpg.d596b1fb6bfa3cb7afe871688cc7ea87.jpg
