That is a 1937 Buick (different grille to 1938)

 

To me not sure what part you are missing.

The best source of pre war Buick parts is Dave Tacheny in Champlin, MN. He specializes in 1936-1941 Buick parts. He is old school:- no email. The best way to contact him is to call him between 4 and 7 pm Central at 763-427 3460. You can also write him a letter. His address is 11949 Oregon Ave N., Champlin, MN 55316.

vinny,

From the photo, your car appears to be a 1937. If it is a Special, this is the one you need (plus buying it from the guy who makes them is cheaper than buying it from the other vendor shown above) https://www.ebay.com/itm/1937-Buick-Special-Series-40-Hood-Hinge-Stainless/223862634883?hash=item341f40b983:g:5w8AAOSwUMhccbBI. Brian DePouli is also on the forum and can supply one for other series if your car is not a Special.
