  1. 72 Skylark 350/350 2D hardtop

    I was working in a different town came across a Buick in a yard. I left a note to find out more about it. Owner called and said it was for sale. I have just bought a truck and a trip to Colorado so I'm not in the market but said I would pass on the info. 72 Skylark 2D hardtop 350/350 150k or so gsx stripes and spoiler gs sport hood silver white interior bench seat column shift has damage in the drivers front. headlight buckets fender and I think the hood may have been touched too. i only got one picture as I had not talked to the owner and didn't want to go rooting around in someone's yard. price is asking $6500 and location is Buford ga close to the mall of ga. if anyone is interested I will pm the owners contact info. I'm not posting here due to respect to him.
  2. 56 4dr hardtop special, not mine

    I like the thought of buying this and making a 56 4d convertible. Maybe fabricating a fiberglass removable hardtop. Be a great start and wouldn't feel bad about cutting up a good car.
  3. 1956 Stationwagon $2500 Oklahoma

    When I have money there are no wagons. When I don't have money wagons tend to pop up. Looks like a good car. Even if the motor was trashed I have a good 56 running gear that would fit right in.
  4. Another Road Side Find - 1954 Willys

    Every hood you ever find is rusted. I was not around when they were new but I suspect they were rusting on the dealer showrooms. Good cars but parts are almost impossible to find. Other than drive train parts shared with jeeps. Also they are unibody cars so if the body is rusted it can be structurally compromised.
  5. 1954 century sedan. GA to NC

    i have one of those for my Buick too. It doesn't say tabor just a generic one.
  6. 1955 Exhaust pipe hanger

    I can look on my 55 parts car. It will be toward the end of the week. If you don't find one before then I will update the thread here and pm you too.
  7. WTB Turn Signal Switch "56" Special

    I spoke with ron yesterday Wednesday or Thursday is the deadline for the 56. Reasonable prices and easy to deal with.
  8. WTB Turn Signal Switch "56" Special

    I have one in a 55 century. Unsure if it works or not. If it will work for your car I can pull it for you.
  9. 1955 Buick Special 4 door hardtop

    I went through my nailhead in the drive way. Yes, the same driveway I painted it in too. There is probably a fair amount of dust and gravel in my nailhead and it does ok. The 283 in the Chevy will probably be next though I don't think it'll be as involved. Probably just a gasket kit and paint.
  10. Trunk on a 1955 Buick Special

    Too much rust in mine for decent pictures or I would help.
  11. 1956 single action fuel pump?

    My vac wipers work great when it has appropriate pressure. So I can take or leave the double action. Plus the elec vac pump would be a suitable conversion. The 57 timing cover conversion sounds like a good way to bypass the double action pump and my oreillys can get the 57 pump. Funny thing about money it does seem to dominate a lot of decisions. Thanks for the advice
  12. 1956 single action fuel pump?

    I'm looking into a fuel pump for my 56 322. I know it's a double action. Cars did not have one they have a rebuild service. Kater has one for $160 plus shipping that's a bit more than I want to pay right now. I rebuilt mine mine many years ago when the vacuum diaphragm ripped and failed to produce vacuum at night in the rain best timing of course. After the rebuild the fuel pump was sporadic and would fail to pump at random and I had no vacuum at all. So I put a little elec pump on the fender and has worked flawlessly until the other day. The replacement costs 50$ now so I'm looking to go back to an appropriate set up. So so if there is a good option to get a replacement I am not finding that'd be good. If there is a single action fuel pump that is easier to get I can use a 12v elec vacuum pump for the wipers. I may go back into it again if it warms up. I've got a core from a parts car I can send off to be rebuilt also.
  13. I have a double belt water pump pulley but it's off a 55 if it will work I'd let it go for $25 plus shipping.
