  1. Hi Thanks to everyone for sharing their knowledge! And to be clear - these parts are not currently for sale, and I am not trying to rep them. The owner has not determined how he will sell - I am only trying to help him determine a value. Thanks everyone! Alan
  2. Hi Paul! Thank you!
  3. I am helping a gentleman with a collection of Buick parts that his father collected; with his father's passing, he is now trying to determine values on some of them in the eventuality that he will sell them. These are not for sale now, but I am working to ascertain at least ballpark values so he can determine his next steps. Here's the list of Riviera parts: NOS rear quarters - 1963/64, and 1965 - driver side; NOS front quarter panel driver side 1963; NOS rear bumper 1971-73; NOS rear bumper 1966; used 65 clamshell headlamp unit, complete; one dual quad set up, and one dual quad intake; nice used wood steering wheel, early Riv. Thanks for your insight!
  4. I recently received an email from a member in South Africa who has a 52 Special, and is looking for a replacement for his manual gearbox. Does anyone have a suggestion on obtaining a replacement? I will pass along your good information! Thanks Alan Oldfield #15140

  7. UPDATE Pix of the cars lined up today, for the auction this weekend.
  8. Thanks for the replies! I was able to check out both the links. Good info on both. Still hope I can find a Buick person or former Buick person with some first hand knowledge of the program. Appreciate everyone's help! Alan
  9. I recently purchased a low mileage '86 LeSabre Grand National. I have read what little bit of information is on the internet about the car. I would like to learn more about these very rare cars - can anyone suggest authoritative sources, or better yet, suggest any real people I can contact who have first hand knowledge of these? Any tips appreciated! Alan Oldfield #15140
  10. I think the racks of wheels are Buick ralleyes. I know that there are at least two racks of Ralleyes and the owner said it was going to add them to the sale. Alan
