  1. I will take them, Sent you a message and text. Steve
  2. Just installed a set , Dorman # 555-052 You should be able to cross reference the number. Buick used some odd sizes. Most in 64ths.
  3. What series is the 1935. They had small head lights and large. I have a pair of large. Steve
  4. Second to what Mat said. I have ordered product for 6 cars. Always was promised product was in stock. Cloth for my 1960 Invicta took 21 months. full payment was made when ordered. I called every 2 months and was told it would be soon. You feel trapped when they have your money. Cant cancel the order with the bank after several months. Another order was two years. I am grateful for the correct patterns and product even though it is costly. I dont understand why they cant be up front when they dont have enough to fill an order when the take your money. I still recommend them and use them. I tell other to order as soon as you decide to do you seats, as it can be a loooooooooooooooong time before you receive it. Steve
  5. The 63 Buick did not come with chrome road wheels. 64 was the fist year, and they will fit he 63. The hubs and wheels are both 5 on 5 , but 63, 64 and maybe 65 have a larger center on the axle and drum hub. The later wheels will rock around as it is hitting the center hub. I have seen washers used under each stud. Better to find a early set of wheels. And make sure you dont end up with Skylark wheels as Roberta says.....
  6. A week ago on my Honeymoon in Victoria B.C. At the Craigdarroch Castle built in the 1890 best the wealthiest person on the west coast of Canada. Great house to tour, the inside is just amazing. Oh the car, 1953 Super convertible Matador Red. My parents took this trip in 1953 with the same car on their honeymoon.
  7. Aftermarket, Bobs sells them $55 for 2 - a pair
  8. Is this a 5 bolt wheel or 6? And the tire diameter. I have several nice ones, but off a Canadian Buick. They may have used chevy wheels?
  9. And judging can differ after several years with different judges. Now I am interested in seeing the car- any pictures to post for us? Steve
  10. OK, Enough. I was in Denver, was a great show! I attended the membership meeting and BOD meeting. It was surprising at times, but i felt the meeting were run very well and according to bylaws. This forum is not a meeting of the BOD. I saw volunteers working very hard to better the club and the majority of the board had great ideas and positive things for the future. Why is anyone poking the bear with repeated questions, demanding answers, after the moderator asked that all wait for the meeting minutes to be printed. Both meetings were very long and will take many hours and days and maybe weeks for the transcribing by another volunteer. I ask all the have posted some negative and demanding remarks to remember that you all are picking on volunteers. Yes they do need to be accountable, but not picked on. And I think anyone that has negative things to say should be willing to do volunteer work at meets, be a Buick Club member and volunteer in there own regional club. As a business owner and member of several boards, I saw things at both meetings ran properly. I am excited for things to come, this issue to become old history. The Buick club is looked up to by many other clubs and all are enviousness of our awesome monthly magazine. I want to thank all the board members, editors and moderators for their time. You all enrich the Buick hobby and expand my friendships with your volunteering. Steve
  11. I agree, wonderful meet. The prewar parking was great! I heard good responses form all , including the ladies that liked the ability to see the changes thru the years ( the report from my sweetheart). Was great to see a lot of rides given to many people in a 1908 2 cylinder Buick. If they didn't have all the seats filled for a ride around the parking lot, they found someone to eagerly clime in. The tour to the Rambler ranch was amazing- I wasn't expecting a private car collection of 180 or so inside and another 300 over acres of land with free reign to explore. I was a kid in a candy store. I did attend the membership and board meetings. Some surprises I didn't know were happening, but all seems to be for the health of the club. Steve
  12. I think the triple stripe tire made by Diamond back is stunning, As far as jugging, they have reduced the deduction for radial's to one point a tire. Half of what is was. I would by wary of the Lucas white walls. The last set of Lucas tires I bought wont stay white. They turn brown of a couple of months. .
  13. Serious inquiries only, Don't need to sell! Serious Cash offers, and/or New England land trade possible. Don't ask me what my price is, you will be ignored. - Land trade? So is land real cheap in New England? Looks like a poorly stored old restoration. This guy wont air up the tires or clean his $8,000 car, and does he the he think its worth 80k ?? Oh well good amusement.
  14. I am looking for a 65 Wildcat 'tilt column' for a floor shift car - Thanks
