Vintage Buick Engine Number Identification

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Vintage Enthusiasts.

I own a restored right-hand-drive Buick Vintage Tourer from the 1920's, but do not know much about it's history or any other details. The wheelbase we measured as 114 inch and the number on the engine tag on the left hand side of the engine below and to the right of the the updraft carburetor  reads : 2113243.  

Is there anyone out there who can make sense of this, i.e. can tell me the year and the model, please?

Cheers  Gerhard

1928 Standard

Hi Morgan. Thanks for your answer. The Buick was sold to me as a 1928, but in order to get it on the road I need to prove that the engine number is 1928 and also the wheelbase of 114 inch is a 1928 chassis. Can you supply written proof of that or point me in the right direction, please.

Cheers  Gerhard.

Hi 1939_Buick. As also replied to Morgan Wright, thanks for your answer.

Gerhard,

In this chart from the Buick Club of America Judging standards, 1928 Standard (115" wheelbase) starts with engine number 1960500, and 1929 (116" wheelbase) starts with 2225361.  You are between these numbers so the engine is 1928.

Thank you to Hubert 25_25, Morgan Wright and 1939_Buick.

Yes the wheel base is 114.5 and the engine is a 1928 by its number. Makes the tourer a 115 Model I'm sure. Thanks for your help.

Cheers  Gerhard

(The search function on oldcarmanual is bit clunky: sure it was better some time ago)

 

Hubert_25-25.  If that is an add by you apologies
