  1. Corey: Are they still available and if so, how much? Also, where are you located since shipping could be expensive. Thanks, Fred
  2. I'm looking for a long rear view mirror arm to add to the passenger side of my '31 Ford Model AA Stakebed truck - it's part number AA-17698 as shown in the photo below and measures 14 - 11/16 inches long. AA's came from the factory with only the driver's side rear view mirror however I want to add one to the passenger side. I would take just the arm or one with the complete mirror head. If you have an original one on an old rusty parts truck please let me know. Thanks! Email: fredcarlton.tx at gmail.com or call Five 12 - 82 Five - 3369.
  3. Don't know if everyone saw the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale yesterday but a '23 Buick Model 23-55 sold for $57,200. Glad to see some interest being shown in the early 20's cars; seems like the interest in them has been waning over the past few years. According to their description, the car has 16,000 original miles and extensive ownership history. They say the leather upholstery is all original and the car has won the AACA Preservation Award, AACA First Prize and AACA Grand National. http://www.barrett-jackson.com/Events/Event/Details/1923-BUICK-SERIES-23-55-CONVERTIBLE-180940
  4. Welcome to the forum - good luck with your Buick!
  5. Congratulations scalptrader - patience pays off. It was listed a year and two days ago.
  6. I have a complete (both upper and lower halves) windshield frame for a 1915-1922 Model T Ford Roadster or Touring car. I have been using it for "wall art" in my barn for several years and since I don't own a Model T thought someone out there in T-land could use it. It is complete with the hinge hardware where the two halves meet and has some surface rust but can easily be cleaned up and painted. Snyders sells new repros for $255 each. It also has the original brass liner which Snyders sells reproductions for $267. Combined cost of a reproduction: $522.00. If you need it and are willing to give it a good home, the first $200 gets it (plus UPS ground shipping from Texas). fredcarlton@verizon.net Thanks, Fred

  8. Take a look at the photos in post number 1 above - I don't think they are the same for 1919-20 and 1921-22. The 1922's have the raised bead around the top edge. Post number 3 has all of the measurements. If yours look like the photos above, please PM me and we might have found them a new home! Thanks, Fred
  9. Richard: Welcome aboard - since Saturday we've had people join the group from Sweden, Brazil, Denmark, Norway, two from Germany and now you in the UK. I think Henry Ford should have had an advertisement with people holding hands on a hillside singing, "I'd like to buy the world a Model AA".
  10. Larry: Thanks for sharing this - I watched the youtube video about how they do it and I wonder since they work on Bugatti's and Porsche's requiring $400,000-$500,000 in custom body metal work if they would be interested in doing a lowly '22 Buick fender. Interesting video and I can't imagine how much that guy has invested in machinery and equipment shown behind him. I guess he can afford the equipment if he's getting a half a million dollars to build one body! Keep your fingers crossed for me - I've found a guy who will make me a reproduction fender but have also located the original fender I've been searching for over the last 20 years and have a lead on one . . . we're still negotiating.
