24 Buick:

This is what the sizes are for my Standard. 592eca2d885d6_IMG_15401.thumb.JPG.1e093e66916fee2b9b37709de50b61bd.JPG

The top for my 1925 Master should be similar to your car. I can get photos of it when needed.

And the top mechanism is very similar to both series. The difference being that the rear of your car is narrower since it is a 4 passenger instead of a 5 passenger. The master parts book shows different #s for the rear bow.

Wow thanks I am waiting to see who buys the 27 standard as it has a roof frame without bows. Would it be similar?

1927 Standards have nickel plated frame plates instead of sockets and the wood fitted to them. Photo of a 1927-24 Roadster.

Here is a photo of the current engine / water pump. Also what else is there. The 27 bows seem not nickel plated. Any determine features that stand out possibly the roof is meant to be on the 24.

This is the only plate or number I can find on the body and chassis. And it's blank. There is a different style plate on the spare cowl I got with the parts. It has a different shape and stamping on it. Also has a mounted horn on firewall. Am I missing these parts. I just noticed that the plate only indicates 1925 cars...

Ok since there is no horn in the firewall I'm assuming I have a 1925 Buick master tourer? Now I'm more confused.

24 Buick 

that engine in the car is a 25 engine,   1924 had the water pump support  bracket on the radiator side of the water pump.  1925 had the pump support behind the water pump.  So I think you have a 1925 - 55  Sport tourer.   I was surprised when you said it was a 24,  as I always understood it being a 25.

Yes I agree as the motor in the car would be original. Having so many different parts with it was the curve ball. At least I can start the inventory now I have a definite answer. Thanks

I was thrown because the sale was advertised as a 

1924 master.

So welcome to the 1925 Buick fraternity! Now we have even more in common. Here is what the 1925-55 is to look like from period photos is Sage green. Of course these are left hand drive examples. I would think it would be a terror to work on the Starter Generator with the steering box on the right!

Not surprising that you have a 1925 with a different year wheels.  1925 was the first year for balloon tires, and the only year for 22" demountable rims.  New tires became non existent for a long time.  In the 60's, the owner of my car drove 150 miles in another car to find used 22" tires just to put the car on the road.

Hugh. In the  70,s I changed my 25 standard over to 21" wheels as I could,t get the 22" tyres.

Anyone have an original side views of a 25 6 engine. I've searched around but hard to know what is correct. So I can go back and get correct manifold etc as most parts that weren't with a square intake got put with the 27 standard. Which seems shorter in the block. Also a front engine shot thanks for everyone's help so far I hope to start inventory this weekend and work out what's missing. Then keen to start the build

25 Master  Nothing is interchangeable between the Master and the Standard.   Sorry this is a 26,  but very similar to the 25.

Feel free to give me any better pictures, but this is what I have.  Any year changes that I missed too?  So many subtle changes, Always nice when you see a block if you can identify it.  In looking at a car that was for sale on Ebay, I was able to ID that it had a different year motor in it.  Hugh

The headlights you have on the car are with smooth reflectors and the one has an Osgood lens which is a feature for 1924.

 Your engine and frame #s will tell the tale of which year it should be.DSCF5668.thumb.JPG.b9fc46ac2033532466cfe8beb845af6d.JPGDSCF5669.thumb.JPG.e088da3e10d9b85ab6ac1a10f771b5e5.JPG 

The flexible pipe was an addition from the oil filler. Also the bulb primer and filter.DSCF5660.thumb.JPG.69da7a5b169f31369fd64e103ea535af.JPG 

The fan is from a 1924 engine. I have the correct one that I am machining a replacement unit with sealed bearings.

The coil is the original but should be mounted inside the cowl. My distributor is a newer DELCO that was fitted by the previous owner.

Does anyone have a photo of the id plates and chassis numbers on their car. 1925 Buick master longwheel base. Just so I know what to look for when I head back to the sellers shed and look through his parts.

The first photo is an engine plate.  The second photo is a chassis tag.   I would have to do some checking, but I think they are the same size.

No rear photo,s of that car.  It is in the Victorian Buick Club so you could contact the owner through the club.  Those Photo,s of the red 24 posted by Dibarlaw are correct for the sport tourer

Well pulled the car out and pressure washed it looking better already. The radiator cowl has a stamping 192-1924 and seems to have engine plate removed and cowl seems like it could be non original. May explain the 1924 cowl I have separate. Are there differences in between the 24 and 25 model 55 apart from the engine and cowl. There is so many parts I'm not sure if he has gone and tried to make a car with the best parts he had regardless of the year.....
