  1. Does anyone know if there is an individual, or company that will recondition Rear Fender Gravel Shield (rubber covered) shown below? The part number from the Master Catalog is 8.214. Thanks for the help in advance. Mike
  2. Always liked the look of the 55 and 56 Packard.
  3. Thanks for the reply. I know that this part was an option for the Buick Super and Roadmaster and thought that this would look attractive on the Cadillac. Very nice looking car.
  4. Absolutely great looking car. Was the gravel guard that fits between the bumper and trunk available for this car?
  5. Spoke to tire dealer and he is concerned about the weight of the car for these tires. My Super is close to 4000 pounds, should this be a concern?
  6. Morgan, Am I reading the outside diameter as 38.1? This is my major concern. Thanks,
  7. Want to buy the throttle clip that holds the throttle cable in place. Mine is missing and no way to hold this in place. Do not want the entire carb. Thank you,
  8. Matt, I am looking for a spare tire in this range. I thought you posted a very reasonable option at one time. I was hoping to find something around $100. Thanks,
  9. I would work on the mechanical areas to make it a reliable driver and drive like it is.
  10. Very nice looking car, this definitely will be a head turner. Look for a stamping low on the passenger side of the block, it may have the "RE" number for re-manufactured engine. I did receive my drivers side gravel deflector last week. Knocked some of the rust and it is marinating in a tub of Evapo-Rust.
  11. I would also like to do the same for my car 2Carb40 has done this and I hope he weighs in. Mike
  12. Looks to be a Super based on the air cleaner for the small block engine.
  13. I would like to purchase a spare tire for my 1940 Buick Super, but I do not want to pay an arm and a leg for a Coker that will sit in my trunk until the end of time. Does anyone have any information on where I can find this size tire for around $100? Thanks, Mike
  14. Thank you very much for the reply, this will help with the orientation of the escutcheon and I will try using the same type of screws that are used on the window garnish. Best of luck with your car and thanks for the pics. Mike
  15. Bummer, I need to complete my interior and I am awfully close. If anyone knows who they are selling their existing stock please post this info.
