Newbie with 1920 K46 Inherited from my Grandfather

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.  Back in the late '90s my grandfather, Allan Godwin, restored his 1920 K46 that belonged to his grandfather.  His grandfather bought it in 1921 and its been in the family ever since.  My grandparents went on their first date in it in 1942.  When my grandfather's eyesight failed him I began driving the Buick and chauffeuring him around, even taking it on some regional antique car tours.  Needless to say it is a family treasure.  Earlier this year my grandparents passed away at the age of 94 within a month of each other.  I inherited the car and gladly brought it home.  Over the years I tried to take note of all the intricacies that my grandfather would tell me about the car but I wish I had asked more questions and taken more notes.  I feel a little lost right now and I am hoping for some help from the group.  There are several issues with the engine that I will post in the pre-war technical forum.

 

I'm glad to have found this forum and I look forward to learning lots about this gem of an automobile.

Jeremy,

 

I spoke with your Grandfather on several occasions about your 1920 Model K-46.  I have the very same model as you now have.  Our 1920 has less than 5,000 actual, documented miles on it since brand new.  I would very much like to visit with you.

Hi Terry.  I recall my grandfather telling me about a fellow in KS who owned the exact same year and model car.  I am glad to connect with you.  I would love to talk in more detail about the car.  Could I give you a call?  When is a good time?

 

Thanks,

Jeremy
