    55 roadmaster parts, not mine

    Mr Willie said it was near impossible to fit a rear speaker with that evaporator box. I have only seen about 4 AC cars and none have had a rear speaker. Matt?

    Thanks for looking out Matt, but this car doesn't even have a rear speaker. It's going to happen...gotta stay positive.😅

    Hood Mechanism Help - 1955 Buick Century

    Here's the passenger side hood hinge assembly from my parts car...and from my main car...All are built the same. One spring and then the hinge.

    Not sure if you still need it, but I will provide some pictures of the hinge assembly from both my parts car and my main car after I get off work. That is, if someone else hasn't done so by this evening.

    1955 Buick general questions

    Where can you find a thin walled socket?

    1955 Buick general questions

    Anyone know what type of socket to use to remove spark plugs on a 1955 322 engine? All of the sockets I have are to big in diameter to clear the spark plug bore. Thank you.

    Hey Mr Lamar! Good to hear from you. How's the family and yourself? Yes Sir...going to do all those things as you suggested. Mr Willie also gave me the rundown. I will be sure to follow all advice. Thank you much and I will post a video if all goes well. Yes Sir. I already removed all of the belts. Moved the water pump out of the way as well.

    Today, after dinner I had some time to mess with parts car. My main concern was that the engine was seized. I removed the fan and put a breaker bar on the crankshaft. It took very little effort and the engine turned over with ease! I then removed the passenger's side valve cover to be sure all valves moved freely and weren't stuck.It looked as I expected. No surprise there. Turned the crank until each valve moved up and down. All valves moved freely. Nothing was sticking. I then removed the driver's side valve cover and did the same thing.All valves moved freely. Nothing stuck again! Good signs so far.I would love to see if I can get it started, but one thing at a time.

    Power antenna (1955 Buick)

    Let me know what you might sell yours for Mr Lancemb. I have seen this antenna before. It has been trying to sell for the longest time. The price is obscene.

    Any update?

    The money isn't the problem. It's a 20 hour drive (one way) for me. I don't own a flatbed or a truck. I also don't have any space for it. Otherwise, I would be on my way to pick it up. I really hope someone on here can save it.
