    A vendor named Booster Dewey can rebuild you brake booster I believe. Hemmings Motor News will have lists of vendors who can perform the services you seek. Good luck with it. Joe

    1956 Ford Thunderbird

    Just search on Ebay. There appear to be lots of small manufacturers and many of them are priced similarly at less than $100 complete with casters. I bought two a few years ago from a maker in Missouri but I cannot recall his name, for my AMC V8 engines. Or google engine cradles and search on images for one that looks good to you. Joe

    What an old Buick Skylark unrestored is worth

    Anywhere from $500 to $2500 depending on how bad you want it. If you can see yourself in it, running and driving, make the seller an offer. Cars are personal, unless you are a dealer. Joe
  4. Thanks, I will check out the SPI products.
  5. They are looking good but I was in my local PPG paint and body supplies store a few years ago while in the midst of patching the rear quarters on a Rambler. I told the guy at the counter that I was trying to block sand epoxy primer on the repair (PPG DPLF 50 to be exact) and the guy at the counter and two other customers in the store said almost in unison: You are not supposed to block sand epoxy primer. So what sandpaper are you using? Wet sanding?

    1954 century sedan. GA to NC

    With a full reading on the gauge you might have an inadvertent ground somewhere in the system, not a bad or disconnected ground.

    Avanti R2, 1963, refresh

    Looks like a lot of fun.

    You're gonna be thinking about that car while you try to fall asleep each night, I think.

    1950 MACK Model A-20

    Metro Molded parts has a pretty extensive catalog of various types of weatherstripping, with many of the profiles shown along with dimensions. You can order a printed catalog from their website or browse profiles online. Joe

    1963 Buick Special "Pinhead"

    I think that is supposed to be a "1" but was mis-struck. See for decoding your VIN. Joe
  11. If you google, The AMC Forum you can join that group. There are several people on the forum who will gladly help answer your questons. I do have several older Ramblers but I do not have one with the automatic transmission feature you describe. Joe

    65 american fuel tank substitute!

    I have also used a 65 Mustang tank on a 65 Rambler American. Yep, it works, but some modifications are needed as you mentioned.

    My "new" 1916 D45

    Perhaps the quoted reference was to lye, but electrolysis is usually done with washing soda ( sodium carbonate). The lye might have been useful for parts where all of the oil and grease had not yet been removed.
