Kyle,

    Now that your motor is started, you can work on the running chassis.  Buick did assembly  demonstrations of complete cars from stocked parts.  This photo is actually from Washington, D.C., 1924. "Proof of Buick standardization of units: Assembly of complete operating chassis from parts stock carried by Buick Motor Co. local branch."

Maybe use one of the other cowls that you have for temporary to take it for a short drive.   You may need a bow tie and a straw hat too.  Hugh

Back home.  Here is the first start of the engine for Kyle.

 

This is with only some gas in the float bowl of the carb poured there from a small water bottle so it does not run long.

The red is just telling you that a mistake in spelling has been made. Just get as close as you can, nobody here cares about spelling as much as what is being said. 

Carry on?

I just found out the other day that you can right click on the misspelled word and it will show the correct spelling and you click on it and it will put the corrected word in there.

Some times it will. Some times it will lead you down a unpaved road and leave you with a flat tire with no spare.!!! but still be underlined ? -kyle   '' Don't ask me how I know.''

Kyle, If you could find one what would be a neat truck to haul the 25 would be a 1938 GMC Cabover.

what does that look like ?

I would buy the 1939 ford but don't know if it would be heavy enough  to pull the 1925 Buick and stop fast enough for modern traffic Even after I make A aluminum trailer for it .

I’m not into trucks but your problem seems to lead you to a modern frame with good brakes, engine etc but putting an older body for class.  Safely, strong enough to do the job you want.  A modern truck tranny would get you going, attached to a modern engine.  Brakes  would be my biggest issue.    I have a ‘38’ Buick and the first thing substancially done after seat belts was, to upgrade the front brakes from the smallest offered on the ‘Special’ (1.75” wide) to the Century (2.00”).  I drive in moderate to heavy traffic so I’m very cautious.  I’m looking to upgrade again to the 2.25” brakes from later models.   JMHO.

A fifth wheel Trailer- air ride/drop custom made tig welded super light and strong to fit the 1925 Buick road master . Made to fit the 1939 Ford truck would look grate the new trailer could have a supper set of 4 disk brakes to stop the 1939 ford truck and the Buick/trailer at the same time on the new trailer axles . This is what I keep thinking about so now I will draw it up -- kyle

John Baker in the VMCCA owns a transmission shop in Monticello, KY.  He has a ~38 Dodge cabover that he placed on a modern wrecked Iszuzu cabover chassis and he uses it to haul his classics to meets and tours and for work too.  Wish I had a pic of it.  Best of both worlds.  Diesel, auto, cruise, A/C, hydraulics . . . looks great.

Kyle, You can put that cab on a Dodge Ram Dually and it would make a nice Hauler.I have a friend close to where I live that put a 1939 Diamond T Cab on a wrecked Dodge Ram Chassis and bought a used Rollback bed and made a real nice truck.It has a Cummins Diesel,air, Power Steering, and an Engine Brake

Kyle, 

    This is what the sun visor looks like.  I would think yours should be covered.  I do not have dimensions on the sheetmetal, but someone will.  I may need to get you some dimensions on the windsheild pivot parts.   Hugh

Is there a Menu? Within that somewhere there will be a resolution setting, or maybe called fineness or something similar. It may even be labelled something to do with file size. Mine is L      for highest resolution (largest file).

Kyle, 

    Thanks for including this picture.  Steele rubber parts is still in business, and they have 5 pages of rubber parts for my Buick.  I did not realize that someone had molds for all these parts.  This is a link to their website.  Usually the website pick lists for parts stop before the mid 20's, but this one goes to the teens.   Hugh
