This 1938 Buick Shop Manual is a high-quality, authorized, licensed, PRINT reproduction of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) shop manual, which was written and first published by the experts at Buick Motors Division. In 1938, Buick offered multiple series (and quite a few models under each!). The individual series can be identified by knowing the wheelbase. The Series 40 boasted a 122" wheelbase, the Series 60 came equipped with a 126" wheelbase, the Series 80 had a 133" wheelbase and the Series 90 offered a 140" wheelbase. This Buick Shop Manual has you covered for all of the 1938 Series 40, 60, 80 and 90. You'll find that this new, printed service manual addresses such areas of these vehicles as the body, frame, chassis, axles, brakes, engines, transmissions and much more. It includes information regarding the 248 cubic inch (107 horse power) straight eight engine used in the Series 40, as well as the 320.2 cubic inch (141 horse power) variant utilized in the Series 60-80-90.

NOTE: This 1938 Buick service manual covers the servicing of mechanical operations, but NOT the body. For body information, please see the 1937 - 1938 Fisher Body Service Manual, which can be found by clicking here...1937 - 1938 Fisher Body Service Manual.
