  1. If anyone is interested in looking at this beautiful car, please contact Karen Jones to make arrangements to see it in person. Karen can be reached at rowleyinteriors@comcast.net Thanks! Jay Kingston El Dorado Hills, CA
  2. What about Max Merritt Packard Parts. I've bought from them before, the last thing was a complete Distributor for the '34.
  3. Just bringing this back to the top in case anyone missed the posting in Buy/Sell. Jay Kingston El Dorado Hills, CA
  4. Personally, I think Guy is spot on with his views of the car and his comment....................."A car like this will be easy to buy but hard to sell". The writing would be on the wall for me with this car! Jay El Dorado Hills, CA
  5. I know of one that is an auto shop (Thorrson's Auto Body Shop) that has been covered and under re-build for the past 5 years or more in Novato, CA. Not a high priority for the shop as the owner/family owes thousands of dollars and are fighting about who actually gets the car. Painted almost a Washington Blue color like the Ford Model A color. Jay El Dorado Hills, CA
  6. Don - There were a couple of low-ball estimates and from what I gather, people trying to take advantage. The car is fairly priced, but know it can be had for less. If you know of anyone interested in this beautiful car, please let us know. Thanks! Jay Kingston El Dorado Hills, CA
  7. John - The pictures are there. Just click on the links listed below the description. They are all on PDF files and will come right up. Jay
  8. Thanks, John. I am going by what Sandy had told me about the car and rarity. He only knew of a four that existed, I believe. People used to come to him for parts, etc...on their 1933 Buick's. Don't know if Mac Blair has a record or the 33 Buick Registry? Jay
  9. Up for sale is Outlaw Car Mans (Sandy Jones) prized 1933 Buick Series 90 4 door 7 passenger sedan. This car, one of a few known to exist, was purchased by E.I. DuPont in New York, New York. The car has been thru just a few hands until Sandy got hold of her and brought the vehicle back to life. Every part on the car is original as it was when new. The upholstery has been kept as much as original as possible. This 138" wheel base car is a straight 8 (16 valve, 2 per cylinder) OHV, 344.8 cu inch engine, with a 3-5/16" x 5" bore and stroke. This 3-speed car is fitted with a Marvel carburetor, mechanical brakes and sits on 17 x 7 tires. The car is in excellent condition and everything works as it should. Sandy spent literally, thousands of hours on this car looking for the correct parts, making sure everything worked, re-building the Marvel, collecting spare parts as the list goes on! Asking price for this beauty is $60,000.00 (negotiable). The car is located in Fort Collin, CO. If interested, please PM myself or send an email to sandy's wife Karen at rowleyinteriors@comcast.net Please see post on the Pre-War Forum under Owning a Piece of History. buick article.pdf buick article1.pdf buick article2.pdf buick article3.pdf buick article4.pdf buick article5.pdf buick history letter.pdf buick pics.pdf buick interiors.pdf buick interiors1.pdf buick pictures.pdf buick pictures1.pdf buick pictures2.pdf Jay Kingston El Dorado Hills, CA
  10. Dave - Sandy did have two of them. The green one was sold about 16 months ago to a gentleman in Wyoming that was in the oil business. The car, nor the gentleman, were never seen or heard from again. So, to this day, no one knows what ever happened to the car. The one on Ebay may have been this car that Karen, Sandy's wife, had posted. A lot of views, but no takers. See below post of a picture of the two of them side by side. Jay
  11. As some of you may or may not know, Sandy Jones (OCM....outlaw car man) passed away unexpectedly in February. Sandy was a wealth of knowledge on 1933 Buick's and helped out quite a few people here on the Forum. His wife, Karen, is now going to be selling Sandy's prized 1933 Buick Series 90 4 door 7 passenger sedan. As many of you know, Sandy's car is one of a few that exist and was purchased by E.I. DuPont for a mechanic that helped him secure a contract with the US Navy to keep sailors cool on the naval ships. That contract was for a new product known as Freon 12. I will be posting pictures and letters that go with the car under the Buick's for sale section. The asking price for this beautiful car will be $60,000 or best offer (negotiable). Anyway, I just wanted to post this before I put together the ad for the car in case someone here is interested. You can contact either myself by PM or contact Karen (Sandy's wife) at rowleyinteriors@comcast.net Jay Kingston El Dorado Hills, CA
  12. Rest in Peace, Sandy (4/12/46 - 2/18/18). You not only helped myself and others out, you became a good friend for many years! You will be sorely missed, but your spirit will live on through the Forum. Jay Kingston El Dorado Hills, CA
  13. Out of curiosity, is that Continental kit aftermarket? Looks like the rear bumper is angled downward(?). Something just doesn't look right in the rear end of the car. Thanks! Jay El Dorado Hills, CA
  14. As Trimacar stated, "This is a big country, and there are still cars hiding out there collecting dust......" A perfect example that I just saw this AM on the Packard Club website under Packard vehicles for sale is a 1928 443 Series Packard Club Sedan, non running, but in great condition for only $20K, covered in dust, but appearing to be in good condition. So, yes, they are out there!
  15. Jim - I would try asking Fred over at Max Merritt. He may know. Seems like when a question is asked on this sight a month might go by before a response is given. Not like the Buick Forum that when a question is asked within hours you have a dozen responses! Jay El Dorado Hills, Ca 1934 Packard 1932 Buick 8-86
  16. Found one! Thanks for all the help......................................................................................?
  17. Does anyone know where I might find a re-built, used or NOS distributor for my 1934 Packard 1100? Thanks! Jay Kingston El Dorado Hills, CA
  18. Well said, Matt! Jay El Dorado Hills, CA
  19. Did anyone mention Faye Dunaway driving that big beautiful Packard Convertible in Chinatown? Jay EDH, CA
