Jim has the engines right now. 1952 was the last year for the 320 straight 8 the next year they introduced their new nail head V-8. It was according to model which engine was used. Roadmaster's got the 320, Supers had the smaller straight 8 (248 or 263)

you are correct Pat, the 263 did slide in there

1936–1952 320 320.2 cu in (5,247 cc) 3.4375" X 4.3125" (86.2813 x 108.2438 mm)

Okay okay.
'51 Buick straight 8 was 263 cid,
and '52 Buick straight 8 was 320 cid.
This is the '51 so it would have the 263 cid straight 8.
Buick didn't start having 320 cid engines till '52.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buick_Straight-8_engine

according to the webb, the 263 was not a option in 51/52

I wasn't sure which model Buick it was. I'm thinking the Roadmaster had 4 ventports on the hood.
But a smaller straight 8 (263) was used in the jr model Buicks even in 1953 after the senior models got the new V-8. In 1954 the smaller engine was also a V-8 with 264 ci.

only engine in 51 /52
series 70 320 320.2 cu in (5,247 cc) 3  7⁄16"X 4  5⁄16"
(87.3125 x 109.5375 mm) 168 hp (125 kW)@3800 rp

Are we talking about 320 straight 8 or the 263 straight 8?

That's a '51 Buick hardtop. The '52 Buick had a chrome fin on the rear fender over the tail light.
That big overhead valve straight 8 engine probably had plenty of power to pull that trailer too.
Nice set up. Slick.
thanks Jim.
Pat.
