jetnow1 Buick frames are much different than chevy top hat designs. Your friend is
right about chevy's but your frame is much stronger, you should be fine.

1) Does anyone if it is OK to weld such mounts on the frame of my 1937 Buick Roadmaster?
Thanks

All steel construction is designed to flex. If it didn't, it work crack and break. Just so you know for future reference a rule for welding frames is to avoid a vertical weld on the frame sides. The items you are talking about welding on should be fine.
