Just scored this '40 Buick Coupe that I couldn't pass up. I pick the car up later this week. The car is complete and appears to be in very good condition bodywise (VERY hard to find in WI) with only a small patch below the drivers side rear 1/4 window. The lady I purchased it from said the patch was there when her family bought the car 33 years ago. Interior is complete, but showing some moderate rodent/age damage. Car doesn't run but I believe it will with some minor coaxing (new 6v battery, decent gas, fuel filter, put the plugs back in,etc..). Hopefully the 3-speed on the column held up too. Plan is to keep it and turn it into a summer driver. I plan on leaving the chassis stock as I noticed it's already independent front with coils in the back. First round of updates would include a dual-bowl master with new brake hardware/lines and tires. For now I'll keep the I-8 mill with a potential upgrade to nailhead or late-60's Buick 455 a few years down the road. (Depends on if I decide to go open driveline/big Olds/9") Any tips/tricks/ideas/history with these cars? It's my first fat fendered ride and it's a keeper. I've cruised a couple threads but didn't turn up a whole lot of pics. I will post more pics one I pick up the car.
