    55 Century Convertible project

    I finally got around to starting on this project. I purchased it about a year ago on ebay. It should be an interesting project. The mileage showing is 43,000. I started it up just to see if it would run. I stuck a known running carb on it and it started right up. It ran very smoothly and shifted into drive and reverse. No brakes, so I checked it up in the air first just to see if the wheels spun. When I put it back on the ground, I stuck it in drive with a 4 x 6 in front of each wheel. I swear, it tried to jump over the chocks! There are no drips from the engine or transmission which really surprised me when it ran so strong and jumped right into gear.
    The floors were done (poorly) at some time in the past. I was lucky enough to get a full floor pan from Rich (Special55) so I will be breaking out the welder. Other than that, it is a very solid (relatively complete) car.

    This should only take me.....months and cost me.......dollars!

    Re: 55 Century Convertible project

    Here is a great example of the quality of factory paint jobs. This car has no undercoating at all except on the cowl vents.

    It also has the blue-est apple green engine paint I have seen on ANY nailhead.

    Forgive the picture quality, some of these pics are taken with a phone since my technical deficiency was apparent when using (and losing) several camera pics. I promise that will get better, too.

    Re: 55 Century Convertible project

    The car was originally Cadet Blue with a white top. The red leather interior probably set it off nicely. I am currently veering toward either Condor yellow or Gulf turquoise with Dover white and a white interior. I have thought about Black with red interior, but think it is overdone. Red and White looks great, too, but I (ummmm) don't want to follow Willie and Bob THAT closely. (Yes, I know Bob's car isn't two-tone, just trying to make a point).

    The other interesting thing about the car is that it has manual steering and brakes, but a two way power seat. I thought all Century convertibles came standard with the power steering.

    Re: 55 Century Convertible project

    Boy that looks familiar. Good luck with it. I think PS & pb were options. Standard on a Centuty Convert would be leather, power windows & seat. Mine had no P. brakes, I added them, but they still are fairly poor. I imagine power steering units are faily common and I would definately install it in your car. The sterring column from the big bodied 55's are about 2" longer than small bodies. If you can only find a big body unit you can cut and section the column but you would have to be confident of your welding to be safe........Bob

    Hey Mike,


    Good to see you making progress. It's about time you put that bike away and started playing with something that has an engine


    I'll put my vote in now for yellow with white interior. Just don't see that many of them.


    Good luck,

    Re: 55 Century Convertible project

    Thanks Rich,
    Working on a (Buick) Century sure is taking it easy compared to riding a century (100 mile bike ride).
    Bob,
    I am probably going to add power steering, but I like (or at least am used to) the manual brakes. I have the HCC magazine spread on my workbench as inspiration along with buickrestorer.com . (my heroes )

    Why read buickrestorer.com when you can listen live? Or even pay? Or....

    Good luck with the project Mike. You are already making more progress than I am on the '29...time to change that methinks now that we have some snow on the ground.

    Truth be told I saw very little difference between manual and power when I switched over. The PS, on the other hand, is very effective............bob

    Re: 55 Century Convertible project

    Look forward to following the project. Pretty good timing, Woodrow should be 'bout the right age to turn some wrenches. You'd be surprised at the places those little hands can get to with a wrench.
    I'm with Bob re the power steering and brakes. Power brakes, especially 54 brakes are a pain to get right even when they came on the car originally. Not worth the trouble to convert over IMO. Power steering on the other hand, definitely worth the effort. My BlueBird is down right now and I'm planning on converting it to PS before I put her all back together. I may can help you with a PS set up.

    Condor Yellow or Gulf Turquoise. Both were carried over from 54 with Gulf Turquoise being a spring color and I've got one of each. I think Gulf Turquoise would fit a convertible better. Given any thought to Victoria Blue, I think it's a gorgeous color.

    Re: 55 Century Convertible project

    Right now it is 46 degrees in my garage, so I figured I'd do some more tearout. As I was pulling the trunk material out, I found a 1956 wheat penny. I also found a Shell Oil door service tag from:

    xxxETRICH'S
    xxxxLINDA SHELL
    xxxne 254-5264
    xxxinda Way
    xxxCalif.

    It says oil change on 6/10/70 with a mileage of 48667.
    The mileage currently showing is 48667.

    Back to the demo, I want to get the top mechanism off tonight. Pics and scratch awls are going to be my friend

    uhmmm, I take it that it needed a little more than an oil change then, eh?

    Not a Century but, here's an example of Gulf Turquoise

    again, have you considered Victoria Blue. A little bit more manlier of a color....

    Re: 55 Century Convertible project

    I'll think about it Lamar, I'm plenty manly, though .
    I believe I have a good amount of time until I will be spraying color. I got the top mechanism off last night, and boy that sucker is heavy. Just trying to prove manliness to myself, I guess. I got a lot of pics last night, but I'm posting from my phone right now.
    Stay tuned...

    Re: 55 Century Convertible project

    I was expecting the rust in the rockers and under the the sill plates.
    I was very bummed to find rust through under the back seat.
    The rust repairs that were done before were even worse than I initially thought. I believe the car may have been taken out of service due to electrical problems. This could explain why the car seems to be very solid mechanically, but taken out of service in the early 70's. I removed the two wiring harnesses from inside the car today. The main harness that goes from the fuse box to the taillights, and the power window harness. My buddy Rich sent me his old main wiring harness, but I was hoping the window wires would be good to go... NOPE! There were splits, splices, and burn marks all over. Shucks. Oh well, it looks pretty straight forward to fabricate. I am not sure where to start as far as the floor repair goes. Clearly, I am going to need all of this spare floor pan.

    Did I mention that the convertible top mechanism was really heavy?

    Re: 55 Century Convertible project

    Hi Chris,
    Yes it did. I got it shipped here on one of the nicest tractor trailer rigs I have ever seen. Since it couldn't start or stop, I had to pay extra for shipping. Plus I had to get a bunch of friends to help me push it uphill into my garage.
    What do you know about it?

    Re: 55 Century Convertible project

    I think we bought our cars of the same guy, Dean Jachetta, when I bought mine he told me he had sold a 55 convertable to a guy in Austin just a few weeks earlier. Small world huh? He told me had purchased our cars from an estate sale a year or so earlier. I was very pleased with my car when it eventually arrived as it had less rust than he told me!! Mine will be road legal soon so maybe I could take a drive over to you and we could compare notes. P.M. me with your contact details if your interested.

    Re: 55 Century Convertible project

    So...
    I got sick of running around trying to borrow a trailer or worse, rent one and lie to U Haul saying I was hauling a '77 Toyota Corolla. (55 Buicks are TOO heavy apparently).

    I looked at the floor for weeks and was completely overwhelmed by the neverending rust. I took it to the guys who painted my 63 Wildcat a few years ago. They utilized ALL of the floorpan that I took them. While they were at it, they repaired the rockers. That was all of the cancerous rust they found. Yes, it cost me more than doing it myself (which I'm sure I could have done) but I am so busy at work right now I just couldn't tax my brain any further. They totally kicked booty on the floor. They also braced the body so I could remove it from the frame and pull the doors. I need to walk around the car now and figure out what's next.

    More soon so I can catch up to Adam's Limited

    Funny, so are '56 Specials

    I was going to comment about how it was too shiny to be a real car guy's trailer, but since it is new, I'll let that slide

    Nice trailer!! You'll never regret that purchase. Your wife may, but you won't. Very wise choice too of farming out the floors, granted you could have done it but not in near the short time it took the pros. Glad to see your progress.
