    Who has had a Trans/Shifter Lock Key made?

    Wonder what the thought process was w that? The driver would let the front passenger in and then they would unlock the driver’s door for the driver? what if the driver was driving alone?

    Terry my ‘27 Model 27 has no ignition key cylinder at all. There is a switch lever on the dash next to the headlight switch lever so the only security is this keyed cylinder on the trans at the base of the shifter! thats it unfortunately, there are no outside door locks as well!

    Music in a Pre-War Car??

    Yeah I actually am wondering that myself, from the videos I have watched if have to agree! Although I wish I could find more videos of early Buick’s, I know there are tons of Ford videos for every one Buick video I could find! we are still working on the fuel system in our car at the moment, having just finished the new fuel tank and hoping to weld in the necks and fuel pick up within the next two weeks then onto the carb! yesh I think we just want a little tunes to set the mood of the era that’s all

    I wish I had a traditional ignition key/cylinder in our ‘27! I am planning on calling Jessers tomorrow to start the process of getting a key made for the Trans/shifter lock! I will report on the process with Jessers!

    1925 Fuel tank and screen

    Want to make another mesh screen for a newbie like me in trade for some cold hard cash? ??‍♂️ Hey it doesn’t hurt to ask right!? thsnks for the info on the gauge and gaskets gentlemen, I greatly appreciate it!
  8. Who has had a key made from the numbers on the top of the cylinder of the Trans/Shifter lock? We have a newly acquired ‘27 Buick Model 27 “Standard” and found about this way of “locking the car” in what’s left of the mouse eaten reference book that the Widow I purchased car from gave me. Unfortunatley she has been spending her time with her boyfriend who is sadly in the hospital and they don’t think he will pull through. She told me previously she didn’t have any keys to the car. So I’m am curious if anyone has had a key made from these numbers on the cylinder and who would you recommend that I contact to make me a few keys? Is there a way for me to remove the cylinder without disassembling anything else? one of my coworkers at our Chevrolet Buick GMC Dealership is a wiz at putting new tumblers and keying cylinders!

    1927 Model 27 Grill Guard

    I guess the only way to test to see if the liquid inside the unit is still there is to start the car (whenever that will be!???‍♂️) and hold it against the radiator and see if it work? is there another way that I can bench test it’s function? Heat gun? Hair dryer?

    1925 Fuel tank and screen

    I am in the process of restoring the same fuel gauge for my ‘27. There were, key word were, some of the numbers/letters on the face of the gauge when I started to remove the gelled junk fuel off the face of the gauge but the quickly came off even though I used metal rescue that’s supposed to be safe on paint! hey they are 91 years old, I was able to get back some pics of the gauge prior to them coming off. Now I have a silver disc for a gauge face! So I was considering at first to paint the letter/numbers on well my Wife would have been the artist as she was a graphic designer and artist and is amazing w a brush! however now I am considering cutting the same letters and numbers out of brass and soldering them onto the gauge face so they don’t wash away from fuel splashing on them like paint would! i do have a question though, when I took the gauge apart unfortunately I didn’t take notice of the order of gaskets and parts and what order they went together...... does anyone know rhe the correct order they go together? I did did get a new piece of glass cut/ground for the fuel gauge and my gauge was originally rusted /frozen in place so I was able to remove enough of the rust to get it to pivot again and a new float!

    Music in a Pre-War Car??

    Yeah I think a simple battery powered Bluetooth speaker is the way to go, and some of them sound amazing today! plus you can also sit it beside you at a car show and enjoy some tunes as well without worrying about a dead car battery!

    Door Latch Question ‘27 Buick

    Yep it’s me again! Ok so quesrions keep keep coming to mind that I want to ask advice on for the 1927 Buick “Bonnie”. I can’t seem to latch one of my doors all the way, I securely latches on the first step of the jam but doesn’t catch on the inside step of the jam no matter what I do! i see there is a screw on the stepped jam but when I turn the screw or just loosens the screw, do I need to shim it out from the back side? whats the process to successfully adjust the jam/latch so it securely catches tightly!!?

    Music in a Pre-War Car??

    Ok so we love music, and by no means would I EVER consider hacking up our newly acquired ‘27 Buick, affectionately nicked named “Bonnie”. Yes, I know THE Bonnie was in a Ford V8 when she was gunned down but we liked the name anyway, remincent of the era! Ok so back to the tunes, what does everyone do for music on their pre-war cars that didn’t come with a radio from the factory? I’ve seen the “Hidden audio System” but again I don’t want to drill a hole that wasn’t there from the factory or atleast anymore that are in her now! So I am guessing the next best thing is a battery powered Bluetooth speaker stashed under the dash on a 3D Printed bracket and stream music/audio from my phone? i look forward to hearing from you find folks on the subject!! Once again thanks to everyone who has helped me so far, being a “newbie” be forewarned I will have a ton of questions!! I hope all of you have an Epic Sunday! William 1927 Buick (27/27)
