Hello Buick friends,

 

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, driven by the wife.

I love the patina and will do only the mechanics.

( low milage old lady's car :-))

Glad to see you purchased this car.  I really like the way,  the tray/back has been built on your car. I think it is dissapointing that there are not more pick up/utilities, restored,  as they were such a big part of automobile history in rural areas.  There are a few of us on the forum with 1920 Buicks,  so if you have any questions,  just ask. My first car that I got when I was 17, was a 1925 buick that had been converted for farm use.

Casie, 

    I think your Buick looks great.  I agree with your pursuit to just improve the mechanicals.  What are your main concerns?  It looks like it drives.  My main focus would be to change all the fluids, grease the wheel bearings and then go after the 40 grease zerks.   Anything else that is lubricated probably needs a good cleaning and new lubricant too (speedo cable, steering box,  clevis pins,  etc)   Hugh
