  • 1917? Buick cowl and doors and a lot of disregard.

    Bought a front cowl and doors from a Buick of some year, the dash had 1917 written on it with chalk long ago, the sheet metal is solid, especially for being 100 years old.
    I searched for a while to find a rear to match it before I decided I'll just make one.
    Made my frame with the intention of using a v6, but then I had an idea that will probably make a lot of people hate me. (I had it already, so might as well use it)
    Frame measured with 1/16 of an inch square after being welded. I've started building the rear section but am waiting until I get all my rear suspension and gas tank/etc in there.
    Here's some photos real quick.

    I won't give away what the engine is from (you can read the valve cover), but I will say that it will not stay fuel injected. A few people can probably guess what the engine is.
