    I have been messing with old cars since a father and son project for my first car when I was 12.
  1. This is a pretty clean 58 Belair. I did recently put it in primer and put the scallops on it, but didn't do any bodywork other than fixing a ding on the driver's side headlight eyebrow. The car does have rust in the trunk pan and front floorpans, but the rear floorpans are solid. It has a 348 and Turbo 350 transmission. It was originally a Turboglide car. It also has power steering and under-dash a/c. The car hasn't run since the mid-80's and will need some work to get it back on the road. It has a good set of 7.10 x 15 BFG wide whites mounted on factory 53 Chevy steel wheels. It has all of the trim on it and it is all in pretty nice condition and has all new clips. The windshield is cracked and one wing window is cracked. The rest of the glass in the car is nice. The seats are in the car but will need recovered. The door pads are off the car and in the trunk. Also, the power steering pump, a/c compressor, radiator, condenser, driveshaft, and other misc. parts are off the car and in the trunk. This would make a real cool driver with a minimal amount of work. The motor turns over, but I haven't tried to start it. Asking $4200 OBO. The car is located in Guthrie, OK. If you have any questions, give me a call at 580-370-5852 or send me an email at guthriesmith@yahoo.com Thanks, Jeff Smith
  2. Thanks for all the welcomes and the information. I will have to check out some of the other resources that have been mentioned. Jeff
  3. I just found this thread and am definitely new...My name is Jeff Smith and I am a caraholic but am fairly new to the world of classic Buicks. I tripped across a 26 about a month ago and couldn't pass up on the deal. Now, I just need to learn lots about it and figured this might be a good place to start.
  4. My name is Jeff and I recently came across this forum when trying to research information on a 26 Buick I bought a few weeks ago. I am glad I found this group and hope to learn a lot. My car was restored in '61 and was mainly stored and driven on occasion until the last few years when it was parked by the previous owner. I plan to get it up and running again shortly, but am trying to learn as much as possible about how to maintain it before driving it too much. I have worked on old cars for years and have several other old cars, but have very little experience with cars earlier than the 40's. I also need to put a new top on it and a few other cosmetic things in the near future. I attached a picture although not a very good one of the car where I had it stored for a week or so to keep it out of the rain until I could make room in my shop. I got it in the shop last week, so now it is in a good place to work on it. Glad to be here, Jeff
