  1. Have a look at They come up for sale at times. There was a red console from a 1963 for sale last week for $200 ( no shifter ) I don't know if it sold. He said he was going to list it on Ebay as well.
  2. I wonder if the " I'll buy it Monday " man actually did ?
  3. This is me and our daughter on her wedding day a few years ago making an entrance to the ceremony in grand style aboard the 1929.
  4. Joe in New York is correct with his explanation of trying to re-chrome port holes / ventiports. I had all eight of my 1954 portholes chrome stripped then spent many, many hours removing pits and polishing the insides ready for chrome plating. After plating they turned out a bit disappointing. They had what the shop described as "blow' effect whereby the chromeic acid would not adhere to all the surface and it has a blend of chrome / nickel, because of the internal shape and trying to get an all round electrical contact. You have to look hard but it's there. I don't know how the factory suppliers did it ??
  5. Yummy, Yummy,Yummy. Matt, down here we would joke --- sell the wife ( tongue in cheek of course )
  6. I bought most of my rebuild parts from Falcon Global and Russ Martin ( and some from TA Performance ) I got good deals on Ebay international shipping with FG that's why most of the parts come from them. The only thing I'm wary of is the crankshaft main bearings I got from FG. They are Rebuilders Choice brand made in Asia. Any one have any experience with this brand ?
  7. Can a member confirm with me please that the 264 / 322 bellhousing pattern for the Dynaflow trans is NOT the same as the 364.
  8. Thanks Sean. I was thinking the Dynaflow came out of a 1955. If this was the case then it would not fit a 364 ?
  9. Can anyone identify these casting numbers please. There is a Dynaflow trans and a straight 8 block with casting number and engine number.
  10. Took Irene out today for the bi-monthly Buick club meet down by the river. Drove very well as always. From here we ventured to an aircraft museum for a look through. The drive home was spectacular with a lightning and thunderstorm show and a few drops of rain. Got home just in time before the big downpour.
  11. I'm still shaking my head at the availability of this ( new ) part. It's like ----- yep mate, got one of those, no worries. You can lucky sometimes, good for you George ( and Steve )
  12. I'm sure any good instrument repair shop can fix that for you. Sorry but I don't know your area to recommend -- maybe Google ?
  13. She is still driving as good as ever. She won't get a gig this Sunday for our local Buick Club Xmas function however. It's the 1929 ' s turn for a day out.
  14. It appears he never returned your call Lamar. Pity, there's a few people here that would have liked to know where it's gone and find answers to some theories.
  15. There's one less car in that posted lineup of yours, so a red RM should fit in nicely. C'mon mate, work on her. Buy Rita a new diamond ring or something. Ring up and ask if it's still available or at least get a name of who bought it.
