    1931 Buick Model 50 sedan on Hemmings

    John, when I bought my Wildcat I had limited skills, even more limited tools, very little disposable cash, and barely enough space for the car in the garage to get the garage door closed (I even had to remove the steps into the house). But what I did have was passion and a vision, and it sounds like you do too. I also knew it was going to take me a long time to get the car to the level I wanted, but taking it on the occasional cruise to the grocery store is all the motivation you need to keep working on it. You would be surprised what you can pull off by just spending some time with the car and a shop manual, and of course relying on the wealth of knowledge on this forum. You will also meet other Buick owners in your area who are more than willing to help you out at a minutes notice. If I can keep an old car running that previously sat in field for years, so can you. I like this car you have found, if the guys on here think it is a good deal, don't hesitate.

    Wanted 51to53 steering wheel

    I have a dark green one (1953) with good chrome ring, not sure if that helps.

    WTB Buick Hub Cap set

    OK understood and thanks, I am familiar with both "dog dish" and "poverty" terms but was not sure if there was a specific "Buick slang" term for what we are looking for. The car has 4 very nice original full size hub caps on it, but to change things up we wanted to go with the smaller size cap in the center leaving some rim exposed, and probably also using a beauty ring as well. Are the ones pictured by 1956322 an example of what I am looking for? Is this cap a smaller diameter than the stock 45-R wheel cover used in 53?

    Not sure what to call these, but am looking for a set of the smaller center hub cap that you can add the beauty ring to. This is for a 1953 45-R. Thanks
  10. Chris - saw your post over on V8, so notwithstanding the non-numbers (but a correct LX block), could you figure out if this was a factory dual quad car?
  11. To the local experts (Tom, WildBill, etc) - is this the real deal? Also, was the dual note horn an option for Wildcat? I have not seen one with that before.
  12. Not mine. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-Buick-Wildcat-Super-Wildcat/132486143925?hash=item1ed8ca1fb5:g:5e8AAOSwALtablfY&vxp=mtr
  13. And the 62 Wildcat in the above journal article that he literally just fully restored and had not had a chance to drive yet.
  14. I recently bought a 53 Special Riviera that is going to my dad. It wears its original wheel covers, but he wants to add the smaller Buick hubcap with trim ring. I am not up to speed on these years, is this a simple swap with the existing wheels (do they all have the slots for the clips for the smaller wheel cover)? Thanks
