    Body man Will probably replace the piece with new metal
  2. This is my next project after finishing The 54 72R that took me 4 years to build. God only knows how long this one will take but it needs a lot of work specially sheet metal work. Don't know much background on this car other than The car was acquired at a local auction in Florida and traces back to Ohio. It has an old BCA sticker so if the previous owner or someone else in the forum recognizes the car, please let me know Al

    Exactly as Ben said, the model tag still there and I will post pictures later but everything else is the same. If you google Hometown 1950 Buick models you will see and compare all specifications.

    Turned out that this is a Model 52 Super Riviera Sedan and definitely will be used as a parts car. You may follow the car trail on “ Meet Toby my 50, 51 model poject” thread.

    Left rear fender off and just find out that the donor car is a Model 52 Super Riviera Sedan and Toby is just a Super Sedan meaning it is 4” shorter total length. luckily the rear fenders are interchangeable according to my measurements. The difference could be on rear doors and roof length. Will see

    The car arrived to the new home and soon will start donating parts to “Toby” in the meantime the kids wanted to pose with the car asking me were the eyes were. They were referring to the cars from the Disney movie, go figure

    Thanks for keeping my back! Well the front bumper guards on this car still have a holes on the bottom, will know if they can be repaired once I remove them. The other cores are being duplicated in another country. Let see how they come out

    By the way that’s not me. That is Neil who offered the car. Neil became an AACA member just to post the offer, he did not want to junk the car but wanted to go to someone who appreciated Buicks. Right away I can use the two rear fenders and hood, they are in better shape of the 50 (Toby) I’m building not counting the chrome work

  16. Colored Pre-War Photos

    Don't know if these have been posted before but thought I would share. Believe it or not, I think these colored pictures came from Russia. No collusion here folks.

    Well guys here in Maryland picking up the car which have lots of parts to finish up Toby or maybe she is a candidate for a whole resto, will see. Thanks Neil

    This is Neil the car donor and of course there is Lulu waiting to be loaded and taken back to Miami. Don’t know if Lulu will be a parts car to finish Toby or will she be a hard to do resto. This will be determined once inspection is done back home.

    Back then “used cars lot”, today “ Pre-owned vehicles dealership”. Like anything else these days you have to be politically correct not to offend anybody.
