.Very handsome car.

Your best bet is to inquire with specilized car clubs and ask about member's car lists and seek out those menbers with similar cars.Join the club or clubs to gain list access if you have to.There are thousands of early car owners and most do not take part in  forums or social media of any kind..

 

Long established museums may have infor.. And inquire to club libraries.

 

What do you want for it? LOL

By 1914 they were becoming more standard U.S. Buick than the previous models. The door latches are quite possibly the same as a Buick B 37 . McLaughlin often made their own spare tire mount , but it usually attached to the frame the same as a Buick version and in a pinch you can substitute a Buick mount. On the slightly later cars the spare mount could hold 2 spares. I am not sure if the 1914's had this feature.

I agree with Flivverking about asking on a specic site such as the BUICK PRE WAR forum.

I offered on a B37 over 10 years ago. The car located in NY looked to be pretty original. It drove and ran well but still needed a lot of work. The radiator opened up like a waterfall after my test drive! The McLaughlins are somewhat different as to finishing of the body and top.  I love the topbows/sockets.

 Another we investigated but was way overpriced.

 The light gray example below was owned by Marty Roth. A car in wonderful condition but very much out of my price range for a driver /project car.

The Auction photos of your car seem to show major differences from Flint cars. Different cowl and tail lights. Ther look more like Model T Ford styles. The angled windshield looks to be from something later as does the dash arangement. Note how the Gray car has the top secured to fasteners on the cowl 

 Looking at your auction link photos I see a plug on the cowl wher the fasteners for the top would have been. The coil on the Starter Generator is from the 1920s. 

The original may have had a "mailbox" coil mounted on the firewall.

You are welcome Allen. As I have investigated cars that I had been interested in it has been very heplfull to get as many photos as possible. I do have others. I do know of one person in Virginia that has a 1914 B37 if you need more information. Infact he used photos and measurements from the black car I tried to buy. I believe that car was sold to someone in New Jersey.

Isn't is just wonderful to see the advice and cooperation of people trying to take the time to help out someone with their 80+ year old car. It used to be that way all the time, but with a generation or more since I started in this old car hobby in 1963, the attitude I have seen of " I know or have this and you don't so I am more important"  has clouded the clean and free spirit that once was prevalent. The age of "I am an expert" has arrived on the scene.  The word expert is not in my vocabulary.  I have not been a Buick owner as long as some folks, only about a decade or perhaps a little longer, but have found "Buick people" to be kind and patient besides enthusiastic ( thank you L.I. Buick Club, Doug Seybold, Matt Harwood and my friend the late Tom Goad) . Larry DiBarry and Pete Phillips as well.

The top in the picture is the wrong top, I have the original which I have restored.  Having a hard time finding pictures of the mounting of it tho. The original coil was still mounted on the firewall but not functional so another one had been mounted on the starter. The dash i am unsure of, there are holes in the firewall as if some things are missing, and the dash doesn't fit right. Still trying to figure things out lol thanks.

A lot of the drive line is the same as my 1915 Buick C-36. Door hinges were on the outside of the 1914's and hidden in the 1915's. Your engine should have an air pump on the right side that pressurizes the fuel tank to force the fuel up. It is mid way between in the area of the cam which actuates it. Neat car. Mine had been great to tour with. When you get it up and running it will be enjoyable to drive. Dandy Dave!
