Hi from Central Missouri!

 

New to the group with a new to me 1936 Buick Roadmaster Series 80.  In learning mode on how to economically make my car the best original it can be.  Not my first classic, but this one is true love.

 

These photos are last week after her first wash.  Not even a wax yet!

Download the 1942 Buick shop manual. All of it section by section. The pdf link does not work.

http://www.oldcarmanualproject.com/manuals/Buick/1942/Shop Manual/

It is very comprehensive and has information that can be used with all straight 8’s.

It has more information than was included in older “Shop Manuals” before 1942-41

Newbie Too,  Just bought a 1925 Buick Model 25S Standard Six Sport Touring at Hershey 2019 (tonight).  I have had a 1928 Model AA truck for 3 years, but know zip about this Buick,  It was in museum (Merrick) and I just found out likely all fluids drained and no battery.  I am nervous about recommissioning it so any advice greatly appreciated!  Carl - Williamsburg, VA

If she was inside and somewhat protected from the elements?  Probably get her running without much issue.
