Hello from the United Kingdom, I have just bought a 1939 Buick special 40 which has not run since about 1952.
the engine is not stuck as it has been towed 10 feet and still turns over!
the starter motor was in the trunk and I have put power to it and it spins.
i`m not sure how to upload a picture as yet and saying hello as i hav just joined.

Regards

Mike

Hi there Long

I will try to add a few picture`s soon,but for the moment i`m just checking over the engine as it has been stood for about 60 years? but at least the engine is free and not stuck!.
The chassis underneath is solid and the body is straight,the inside of the car will need to be re upholstered.
This Buick came from Las Vegas Nevada which is why i guess it looks in good shape.
