Hi folks, I just bought a 1950 buick on ebay, I'm stuck in california for a job and the car is located in NY, so no chance for me to see it. The vendor sent me a couple of pics of the VIN and the cowl tag...
VIN reads: 35947964
Tag reads: 1950 MOD 50-52
Style n 50-4519
BODY N BL 8821
TRIM N 50
PAINT N 222 (what colour is that?)
NO PS OR PB???
that's kinda familiar as looks a lot like the tag on my other 56 buick, but I'm a bit puzzled on the paint colour....hope someone could drop a hint
sorry, i don't have anything on the 50's Buicks.

cool partsman, thank very much for your help, here are a few pictures of my new baby:
obviously the car must have been repainted at some stage..she needs some care but I'll do my best to bring her back to her original beauty..
