  1. Sorry, none to spare.
  2. Love the comparison of '49 to '59. Could they get any more signage onto that store front? Supposedly the dealer is still operating...
  3. Very nice work, and what a car!
  4. Getting close to the summer, anybody else interested?
  5. RIght side does not have the heat-valve. It does have the funky generator mount, however, unique to '53. If you want to go with a more common 54-55 set-up of manifold and motor mount/generator mount, I have your parts.
  6. I have some plates made up to cover over the plugs at the back of the heads. Impossible to replace when the engine is mounted. These bolt right over the plugs with a gasket you can easily make. 20 bucks shipped. Pm if interested...
  7. I could do Wichita, but the only motor I know of for sure as a runner, and it is a keeper for my Super. Sorry to be no use on that one, but keep me in mind for other stuff. Doug
  8. Sorry, Lamar, side glass all went to a car in Texas. I regret this summer will be more north-bound. Next summer hopefully a more gentile Southern route, good Lord willin', and the crick don't rise.
  9. "Let me make one thing perfectly clear: I am not a gas station attendant!"
  10. Be patient, friend, it will happen if you persist.
  11. I used one for a 55 to 57 Chevy power seat and power window. It is hidden by the kick pannel, so....
  12. Yes, a 54 century motor from a yard in texas.
  13. I am planning my road trip this summer, with the general outlines being from SoCal to Omaha, Southern Michigan, Pittsburg and New Jersey. Don't ask why, but there are reasons for it all... Timing will be end of July through the middle of August. I will be pulling my parts trailer, so here is the offer to deliver parts while I am on the road. Prices and delivery negotiable. --A really super nice hood from a Texas car. No rust through. --Right front fender: super nice, but for some strange reason with 4 portholes. There has to be a good story here... --Inner fenders --Trunk lid with very minor rust through. --Solid doors from a 2-dr sedan. --Rear windshield for the sedan, tinted. --Nice driver-quality bumpers front and rear. --Power steering assembly, complete. --Engine block (264) and complete engines (322s) --Brake and suspension. --Rear end with 120 thousand miles, was quiet when parked 12 years ago. Give me a phone number, and I can text you pictures. Doug Cook
  14. Never took that stretch of road through Amboy. I am usually in a hurry to start a trip and make some miles from SoCal. Looks like a detour will be in order some day. Thanks, great reporting!
  15. Yeah, way to go, Brian!!
