Haulin' Buicks

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

From 2003

The green car is very rusty. Black car is OK. Had some work done on it.

Both have engines & drive line

A lot of weight for a smallish Toyota truck, but only went ~7 miles

This picture was taken in the fall of 1986,  almost 34 years ago,  at the time I didn't realize I bit off more than I could chew!

But I'm still chewing and it's getting closer to the finish line.

Met some good people in the process.

Maybe "For Sale As-Is, needs minor repair"?

Delivered without bumpers and brackets installed, but with wheel covers on -- interesting.  I guess that was considered to be part of 'dealer prep'...

The one on the rear I saw advertised as a 1917 D-35 (4cyl) but the windshield says it’s a 1918 E-35 - considered by the factory to be a 1918 model regardless of what calendar year it was built. But who knows with all the other strange liberties someone took with it. Was only available in black — the whole thing. Fabric top too. Spokes were painted.

At least it’s not red. For some reason 1/3 of them get restored in red. Never offered.

Plenty of Buicks get hauled around Australia.

 

These photos go back to 2008 when a couple of us hauled our Buicks to a National Meet held in Queensland. The.articles were written by a visiting BCA member who was at the meet and were published in the BCA Pre War Division Newsletter..
