Really neat to see the Buick driving down the street for first time  !

As for making new wood for the 28 sedan, the time required to figure out patterns and then cut new wood for a 4 door sedan may not be worth it.

How about a boat tail speedster body ?

These 33X4/12 tires are considered High pressure. Check the sidewalls for pressure limits. Should be around 60 lbs. The 1925 were the first with low pressure "Balloon" tires. My dash plate chart shows 28-42 lbs. depending on model. Front or rear mounting.

 The dash plate on the 1924s I don't believe show this info.

Apolo, 

    Looks like 60 lbs minimum for non balloon clincher tires.  Check the tire sidewall for max pressure and stay just below that.  More information here.  Be cautious when you see low pressure numbers for cars pre 1925 as they may have substituted low pressure balloon tires for what was on the car originally.   An option for you when you are ready to replace all the tires.    Hugh
