    1964/65 Thunderbird

    Good question! I'm not sure and cannot check as I no longer have that beautiful car. Best solution might be to get on a specific Tbird forum and look for a car locally to investigate. I've been known to contact owners of cars similar to one that I am currently restoring and asking for detailed pics and dimensions. Good luck and sorry I couldn't help more.

    Found this pic on ebay. The locking lever is force fit upwards onto the tab that you might notice just below the handle as referenced in this picture. The skirt is then clamped onto your body. I never had any problems with mine getting loose. The pin I mentioned is in the lower forward section of the fender skirt as viewed when on the car. The pin is missing from this skirt. This one ig currently going for about $20. If you are missing the hardware look at something like this and pick the best. Odd that the hardware is missing as it is not a bolt on, but rivited.

    There is only one hole for the skirts. It is 3/16 or so in diameter and is located low on the front of the wheel opening on the inside edge.
  4. Looks good enough to drive for an ice cream run and to bring to a Buick/car show. A runner always sells better. Of course it has potential but a purchase to drive-it-like-it-is will keep it out of the fields and bone yards a little bit longer.

    Rhd 1940 Buick

    The Century, Special and huge series 80 and 90 Limited's would have fifth and sixth wheels. Parts that are valuable include exhaust manifold on 320 cu in engine, vent windows, window cranks and escutchions, all stainless trim, grill halves, wheels, jack to name some off the top of my head.
  6. Yeah, but there is a price to pay for that!

    Damage to my 48 Lincoln

    Oh no, I whole heartedly disagree about not getting your insurance involved. Definitely report it, they will subrogate the claim with the shop insurance company. Let the insurance companies fight this one out. This can work out two ways: 1) The shop has insurance and your insurance company collects, then you get repairs at the shop of your choice. Your rates do not go up when the shop's carrier pays. 2) The shop doesn't have insurance, now you are out of luck. Your insurance pays and your rates may go up or the claim is small enough that you pay and your rates don't go up. This brings up a good point for all of us that may rely on a third party to do all or some of our work. If they are insured, AND you have proper insurance, then you will most likely get reimbursed. If the shop is bubba's back yard shed and he is not insured then you have to rely on your insurance. Without another insurance company to subrogate, your carrier pays the loss then decides what to do with your premiums for next year.

    Car phones in 1946

    Perusing an old trade magazine from February 1946, we see an announcement by Philco Corp regarding the production of mobile radio telephone equipment for cars. I'm not sure of the technology, but suspect the service would be within a short distance. Not sure what strength of an FM signal could be generated.

    I JUST LOVE THE PICTURE OF THIS BUICK...........

    That's what it looks like when I search for the Pontiac, thanks Ben. It looks like I can add Pontiac as a potential parts car for the Buick.

    I JUST LOVE THE PICTURE OF THIS BUICK...........

    Quite sure this is a Buick. I recognize the back of the seats being similar to a 1940 seat, but that is not a 1940 dash. Is it a '39? If this young couple ducks down further I could see more of the dash to identify the car. Anybody?
  12. You might also try BAT (Bring a Trailer). I've seen parts cars sold on that site and if yours is a special interest cars as suggested by Mike (above) you may find a good home it.. It'd cost you $99 to list it.

    Me and my beautiful 1956 Buick

    For a jig, how about a wood box built to be slightly oversize of the valve covers, filled with bondo. Grease the valve covers or use plastic wrap on the top side of the valve cover, turn them over with the flange up and sink them into the bondo. Maybe plaster instead of bondo, then just use the box to secure the valve cover for your work.
