It's a Buick, but not a '37 or '38.

It's actually a '36, and I'd say you previous answer of 1937 is close enough. The difference is pretty subtle with so much sheet metal missing, but if you look at the window openings on a '36, they are much rounder (longer radius corners) than later Buicks.

Bob, the floor is yours......

The only pictures I posted were of a grey '36 Buick. That was 496CHEVY3100 who posted the pics of the tan 37 Olds. Sorry if that was confusing...

First Vehicle

There is going to be several parts to this question, and yes you may use google.

1 What country makes the claim of having the first gas-powered vehicle?

2 In what year was this self-propelled vehicle built?

3 What kind of vehicle was it?

4 What was the size of the engine? How many HP?

5 What did the engine drive to drive the vehicle?

I think there might be some debut over this we will see.

Yes it is all the same, I will say that calling it a passenger vehicle is pushing the limits of vehicle, but that wasn't up to me I just asked the question.
