1939-40 Buick Special Conv
« on: January 21, 2020, 08:47:05 PM »
Got a Call from my buddy Cheech, he has a driver who's father is working on a 1939 Buick Special Convertible. Fella said 39-40 same. He is missing the top header bow (i presume wood) and Left vent (wing) window assembly.

Trying to help find parts or leads. I found a company Wescott's Auto parts out of Oregon and a Buick forum forwarded to him.

Any leads appriciated!  Thanks

One of our Inliner guys has a '41 Buick. I'll ask if he has any parts connections. I won't see him until next month.

Ed/Sixball thanks. I'm not sure of the interchange abiity of Chev, Buick, Olds, Pont along those years myself. I'll pass the info on.

It sounds like he has been working on it for years, so.... ;D   I think the fella lives in Washington St.  I looked up Hemmings and E-bay also, nothing as of lastnight anyway. 

Thanks again!

Thanks Mike. Thats a different Buick site than i forwarded, that'll give him more options.

I will forward all to my buddy tomorrow, he's driving his Game Creek Video rig down to Fla to set up for the Super Bowl coverage today.

Inliners International has some pretty active local clubs in the West and he might find some help near him. I think it was '38 or '39 they Buick had the big straight 8. My friend ran on in a dragster that still holds a record. (probably because he held it when the class was eliminated)
