1946 Buick Roadmaster

Hi, I have a 1946 Roadmaster that was given to me a couple of years ago. The car was driven to my house, and dropped off. The guy that gave me the car has moved out of state, and I have no way to reach him. The problem is. I don't know how to start this car. The ignition switch is only ON, or OFF, and I can't find any buttons to engage the starter. I was thinking something on the floorboard, but nothing there.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Ken

On some older cars I have seen (if I remember correctly) the starter was on the gas pedal. Just push the pedal all the way to the floor and see if that works. Good luck.

Correct on the gas pedal. there is a switch on the carb linkage for the starter.
