Congratulations on your purchase, Selim!

Buicks from 1949 are beautifully styled cars.

 

One productive thing to do is to join the

Buick Club of America.  Their monthly magazine

is good, and has ads for Buick parts.  You can

pay to have it mailed to your country;  and I think you

can instead have it sent by e-mail.

 

Buick fans help each other.  You might want to

introduce yourself in one of the Buick categories.

They are on this same forum, but farther down the list

of topics.

That's a good looking car. My advice is to take the wife for an evening out and buy her flowers before telling her about it. Joining a Buick club would also be a good idea.

Lovely looking car.

With my '53 Buick's I could drive at or over the speed limit on any highway in North America. The standard transmission one would make 18 mpg on the highway (when driven sanely) and the automatic one would average 15 mpg.  Absolutely beautiful on the highway. I used to use the std one in rallies and it was especially good in the "Spring Thaw" rallies in Manitoba.

You bought a Buick. Your need for spare parts will be minimal.

 

 You made a good choice.

Lovely car!  I have a similar '49 convertible -- a Cadillac, instead of a Buick, but similar.  I agree with what others stated that joining the Buick club would be useful to learn about where you can access parts.  But you can also find a lot of parts just by searching on the Internet: Many parts sources have an online presence and you can order parts and have them shipped from them.  Just searching around, these seem like possibilities:
