  1. GREAT COLOR COMBO. The 2-Dr hardtop should be fun!
  2. The color combination is "Pueblo Tan and Shoreline Beige" per the color code and 1954 Chevrolet colors. Mostly original paint. The car received HPOF certification at 2019 Hershey.
  3. That sounds reasonable. Thank you for your reply. Andy
  4. I have a 1954 Bel Air with the cast iron powerglide that was fully rebuilt 19 years ago (new planetary gears, seals, reverse lever, the works!). I've owned the car 21 years, but recently over filled the cast iron powerglide automatic transmission for the first time. The car was cold, pushed it out of the garage and filled it without having run it and without the car in neutral. Thinking this was my mistake. The fluid came out of the fill-tube. I realized what I had done after dumping in my 1/2 to 3/4 of a quart. I am hoping that a powerglide expert could offer some suggestions or guide me on what to do. I took it for a very brief drive (less than 1 mile) and heard some noise which i think may have been what is described as torque converter cavitation. I dunno. Never heard the sound so came back home right away. Was thinking if draining fluid and then refilling with proper quantity. And then trying to drive. Anyone out there know the ins and outs of this and can offer suggestions? This car is my baby, and I've seldom had problems with it, and I just don't want to make another mistake that may cost me $$. If you have never been around a cast iron PG or do not have first hand knowledge of such, please refrain from responding. (not trying to be rude, but I really am trying to avoid being mislead by an 'expert' who isn't familiar with this early GM automatic transmission. Not looking for guesses.) Thank you. Andy B.
  5. I have a 1954 Bel Air with the cast iron powergluide that was fully rebuilt 19 years ago. I've owned the car 21 years, but last Saturday, over filled the cast iron powerglide automatic transmission for the first time. The fluid came out of the fill-tube.

  6. Check has cleared the bank, thank you Pat. Hope you have a smooth week leading up to the show.
  7. Doug, Agreed. Just came up in conversation with Dad, so thought I would just check. Shouldn't be an issue, I agree.
  8. I check with my father who sent his in really early. His hasn't cleared either. We are thinking they might be waiting until just before the actual show, in the crazy event they have to refund. Just a guess, we do not have proof.
  9. Just a quick question on registration confirmation. I was looking to see if I could confirm registration, but note that my check has not cleared my bank account yet. Has the meet processed the checks, or not yet? My registration was sent in a week prior to the deadline, but hoping the difficulties with the USPS haven't gotten in the way. Thank you. Andy
  10. Thank you Rick. I would only be interested in the rear fenders and am looking for touring/Roadster rear fenders. If you are not interested in separating them out I certainly understand. Here is a link to my wanted ad (I have the fenders listed for trade, but am willing to buy fenders outright, if they are what I'm looking for) With your being relatively close to me, I thought I would inquire.
  11. Wanted to Trade:What I have: A pair of 1924/25 Coupe rear Fenders. They are clean, strait, and older (original?) paint. Some surface rust, no pitting. Have not had body work done to them. Honest 'original' ford steel. Brackets are installed. Have crown to them. What you see in the photos is what I have.What I need: A pair of 1915/16 roadster/touring rear fenders. Ideally similar condition as the coupe fenders I have pictured below. Original paint with minimal surface rust or blemishes is ideal. I prefer a set of fenders that are 'flat' without the cross crown, but will entertain post-1916 'crowned' fenders in the right condition. The deal: An even trade is what I desire, but willing to discuss other options with interested parties. e-mail me at arb225@comcast.net for quickest response.I am located in Central Pennsylvania minutes from the fabled Hershey AACA show grounds. Am willing to meet up with any interested parties traveling to and from the few fall Car shows in the Mid-Atlantic this year. I'm kind of in the middle of it all if you happen to be passing through on I-81, I-83, the PA Turnpike, 11/15, etc. Help me located the two missing pieces needed to complete my cut-down touring project and you'll see the car as my daily transportation @ Hershey 2021 in the Chocolate Field. Lets make a DEAL!
  12. Rick, do you happen to have photos of the rear fenders you are offering for sale? Andy
  13. Great price on what appears to be an honest car. Bumping for you and your friend.
