    Anderson Pearson, My 1941-76C Buick Roadmaster

    Is this where the auto-holics meet? If so, "my name is Anderson and I'm obsessed with my car..." (everyone in unison, "Hello Anderson")

    I've enjoyed this forum for a year now, but have been only a wall flower, so I guess its finally time to step forward and say hello!

    I have a 1941-76C Buick Roadmaster coupe convertible, Royal Maroon body, red leather interior (well, vinyl) with a tan top. I've attempted to attach some photos...I hope they post OK. I've owned this car for 12 years and have enjoyed every minute of it (even when I was miserable.)

    I'm looking forward to getting to know the group better. I'm always looking to learn more about my car. Thanks for all the useful, and just plain entertaining posts!

    Hi Anderson, welcome to the forum and glad you decided to post pictures of your beautiful Roadmaster. I have a 40 Roadmaster coupe and it is a great driving car, that I enjoy driving too! The Roadmasters 320 cu. in. engine lets it keep up with modern traffic and the 3.9 to 1.00 rear end gearing makes for easy cruising on interstates.

    Thanks for the welcome Woody. I had a '40 Super convertible and LOVED that car. But you're right, the 320 is the way to go for highway cruising.

    Thanks for the hearty welcome and compliments John! I'll definately be at the meet in June, and I'll keep an eye out for you among all those beautiful Buicks. I heard from our President, Brian DePouli (also from Charlotte) that the registration numbers are high ALREADY.

    Nice car, welcome to the group! I'm the resident trimmer of the group (although I'm sure others have such skills on here), so love your car, wish they'd left the Nauga's alone and gone after some cows, though!

    That has to be a great driver, I used to own a '37 Buick and it was one of the nicest driving 30's cars I've ever been in....

    You are probably right, although it's been unusually mild this winter. We can still see our dirt ( I would have said grass but weeds don't really qualify as grass to me) We noted that when ever that happens we seem to have a crappy summer thereafter, so I hope it starts snowing pretty soon and gets it over with.

    Thanks Matt. I've got a thing for the convertibles too. I get mine out when I can, but it never feels like its enough. My wife calls me "the one car parade."

    Great body style, great colors too. The stance is perfect. I bet it gets tons of looks.

    Would be interested in just how original it is, and what have you done to it since you purchased it.

    Love to hear the history, and bits and pieces.


    Welcome,

    Re: Anderson Pearson, My 1941-76C Buick Roadmaster

    Hi Dale, thanks for the welcome.

    She's an all-stock driver. I don't have historical documentation (but I'm working on that through a title search and the BCA) but it looks like she was restored in the late 1970's or so. Since then, I've just been driving it. Oh, I've done the usual oil changes, carb rebuilds, water pump replacement, etc. but nothing major. I'm not a mechanic, just an enthusist trying to keep a piece of history onthe road.

    But after 10 years of saving my pennies, I'm finally getting some much needed help to bring her back to former glory. It's been a long road, but I'm enjoying the walk. Looking forward to sharing the journey with all those interested!

    Welcome to the forum. If you need help on getting info for your 41 Buick give Lew Jenkins a call ( he is in N. Wilkesboro NC ] or Doug Seybold of Ohio they can steer you in the right direction.

    Hi Hector- thanks for the message. I've never taken the car to any of the shows. However, I may have enough work completed by June to "respresent" in the meet (maybe...)

    Regardless, I'll be there and am looking forward to meeting you and the other club members.

    Anderson;
    Just found this thread, nice car you have you there! I am nearly finished restoring a Canadian built Roadmaster Coupe. I have done the paint in the same colour, as your car, Royal Maroon, and hope to have it on the road this Spring.
    Thanks for sharing, and hope you continue to enjoy the forum.

    Hi Keith,
    Thanks for the greetings. "Nearly finished" is where I'd love to be right now! My car is currently stripped down getting some much needed TLC (trying to finally get rid of a 25 year old bondo job!) and is almost ready to prime and paint. Then I'll need a new top...
    Enjoy driving that Buick!

    Thanks Al. Yep, I know these guys well. Lewis and Hill have the car now. For the time being, I've put down my wrench, and picked up my checkbook. There are a few things I just can't do, and need to call in the pros (and boy, these guys know this car.) They are doing the bodywork now, and when I get the dough saved, most likely will provide the top kit.

    Thanks for the referral,

    Hi Al,

    Unfortunately, there was alot more work to be done to the body than I (or they) expected. Rocker panels, the trunk decking near the latch, and wheel wells all were pretty much held together with bondo and a prayer. It's all been repaired with solid metal, primed and ready to paint. I'm going up to approve the new color next week (Lancaster Grey.)

    Thanks for asking. How's life in PA treating you?

    Re: Anderson Pearson, My 1941-76C Buick Roadmaster

    Unfortunately, that is common on these cars, and one just doesn't know till it gets taken down to bare metal and all of it's sins are on display!
    Mine was similar, but worse, and the previous owner had cut out much of the rusted body, then became ill and passed away. So I didn't have much for patterns in some areas.
    Anyway, be sure to post some pictures of it when its' done, or even some "in progress" shots would be nice to see.
