  1. BUICK Parts & Service Mechanics Hat Patch. Original.

    The BUICK mechanic's hat patch and cloth hat toppers are still available. $20 for the BUICK patch, and $18, plus shipping, for any of the cloth toppers (if needed). Thanks for looking again. John

    Hi, Lamar. I think all of these toppers have elastic on them, which means they can expand to EXTRA LARGE, just in case you might personally need that. Of course, I'm not saying you need that, ol' Buick buddy, but.....just in case! I'm sure I still have the toppers here. I'll check later today, and PM you with details. Thanks for your interest. John
  3. Please disregard the three areas of white "spots" toward the bottom of this Buick button. They are just reflections. This item is in excellent condition. This is 4" in diameter, 1963 Buick Salesman's Promotional Button. Has a great sales slogan: "It would be a pleasure to Demonstrate the Difference in Buick". This button has a special clasp on the back that enables you to slip it into a shirt pocket, so that you don’t have to poke holes in your shirt or coat. This Buick salesman’s button would make a nifty display item to show with your Buick. All original, and no issues. The price is $37, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking.

  5. This 1960's vintage BUICK Professional Salesmaster Award was presented to a guy named "Herb J. Quirk" The colorful anodized metal plaque measures 8-1/2" x 11". The tri-shield logo is done in plastic and looks super. Overall, this 50-year-old award plaque is in very good condition. The photos show the one scratch in the blue. A guy could play with this, and get a new name plate engraved......using your own name OR the name of a BUICK buddy (wouldn’t that be fun?). This would look super on your Buick garage or man cave wall. The price has been reduced to just $23, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking. John

  7. Here’s your opportunity to have “Happy the Buick Hawk” roosting in your man cave this Christmas. This is an original BUICK "Happy the Hawk" wall-hanging dealership display. It's very good quality, and good-sized. It measures 23-1/2" wide by 18-1/9" high. This display is a deep shadow box, which has a very striking three-dimensional design throughout. "Happy" is "sculptured" in appearance. The hawk and the "BUICK" lettering literally float off the background. The unit is well built. "Happy" was introduced as part of a revised Buick logo in 1975. He continued to fly into the later part of the 1980's....all the way through the larger Riviera and the Grand National days. This original Buick showroom advertising display is one I've had in my collection for years. Examples of this piece (in any condition) don't seem to come up for sale all that frequently. As mentioned, this one I'm selling is in very good condition. Good color, with no sun damage. Please DISREGARD the reflections in the clear lens on the front of this display. These are just from the lighting. The price is $265, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking.

  9. This will make a nice Christmas gift for someone (or for yourself). I've had some of the old Buick Club of America Glass City Chapter annual issue drinking glasses here on the forum before. The guys have bought them to further complete their glass collections, or to use as part of their overall Buick memorabilia displays. This is one of the previous Glass City Chapter glasses that I don't see come up for sale very often. This is a never-used 1939 Buick convertible coupe drinking glass. As mentioned above, it is one of the "annual" glasses that the Glass City chapter of the BCA used to sell at the club's annual meets many years ago. I purchased this glass new back in the day. There are no problems with it. This quality glass measures 6" tall, and it has good weight. This will make a nice Buick goodies display piece....ESPECIALLY FOR any 1939 Buick owner. Some of you might even use it to enjoy a beer (or two)! The price is $30, plus the insured shipping cost. Thanks for looking. John

  11. BUICK Parts & Service Mechanics Hat Patch. Original.

    Hey, Lamar....always good to have you check in. A cloth hat topper is the fabric part of the mechanic's hat. The topper either snaps on the hat frame or is held on with an elastic band. The frame is the part of the hat that contains the "bill", trim band with decorative buttons, and the head band. Similar frames were used on all sorts of caps (military, milk man, police, gas station attendant, auto mechanic), with only the cloth topper and emblem being different. Most cloth toppers fit most of these hat frames. Guys will find a beat-up hat at a flea market or antique store (with a dirty, worn, torn topper on it), and salvage the "frame. They'll put a good cloth topper on it, like I have available, sew on the original patch they have, and wind up with a nice, period-correct hat. I've attached photos of a Texaco attendant's hat, showing the black frame. I've also attached photos of some of the cloth toppers I believe I still have here (I haven't looked for them yet!). Best regards to you. John
  12. This is an original BUICK Parts & Service Hat Patch. 2" diameter. This is the real deal. I personally removed it from a well-used mechanic's hat years ago. It's a bit dirty, but still looks good, in my opinion. I haven't tried to clean it. This BUICK mechanic's hat patch is just $20, INCLUDING the U.S. shipping. NOTE: I believe I also have several different, good condition cloth hat toppers (without the hat frame) here that will work well with this BUICK patch. A topper would be $18, plus the shipping.

  15. Hi. I want to discuss something with Bill Anderson of Anderson Automotive Enterprises (AAE) in Gambrills, Maryland. I was sure I had his email address in my computer from past contacts with him. But, I can't locate it. Would someone please PM me with Bill's email address. Please DO NOT post it here in response, but PM instead. All of us get enough SPAM as it is! Thank you. John
