  1. I have a 1940 56S and I would check the measurement between the two front brackets and the two rear. If the brackets line up you should be good. Pic of my car showing brackets.
  2. Sanded and painted right side deflector from 41 Roadmaster. Still looking for the left side.
  3. Hi Neil, Did you receive my PM sent last night? Thank you very much for the offer, trying to finish my car on a shoestring budget.
  4. Thanks for clearing this up, as I thought the car was original paint and don't see how they filled that hole in the roof. As for the Back up lights, mine were mounted on the gravel guard (two guide 31) until the "restoration shop' decided to take that off and throw it away.
  5. Hello Neil, It just so happens that I am in need of this lens. Is it already gone?
  6. This is the first time that I have seen the antenna on the fender for this year. Have I missed something?
  7. I'm sure that this will sell as it should cost that much to get this part re chromed. If you happen to come across a deflector (left) for my rear fender, I would appreciate a shout out.
  8. Looks to be in excellent shape, if I needed one I would be all over this. Very fair price.
  9. I thought that I was the only one who did work this way.
  10. Maybe his wife told him he needs to sell the car and he did the post to appease her.
  11. Looks like it would be a fun project. I wish I had the room.
  12. Wishing you the very best of luck on your project. I noticed in the first picture that there doesn't appear to be a deflector in the rear fender behind the tire. The deflector provides stability for the fender and prevents stone chips from hitting the inside of the fender. I only noticed this as I am trying to track down the two of them for my car. I wish I had noticed that mine were missing a couple years ago so I could have started my search earlier. This will be a beautiful car when finished.
  13. I don't understand how someone can state that this was his daily cruiser, but not know which model it is.
  14. I used to live in Southern California and this car would be hot seller there. Many low riders would be all over this car. I would recommend listing it in the Los Angeles Craigslist.
  15. Just received the right side gravel deflector from 41 Roadmaster today. The part has a little shelf wear and some surface wear, but does not appear to have ever been on a vehicle. I will do a little clean up and paint before installation on my car. I am still looking for the left side deflector, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mike
  16. Very nice looking car. Best of luck with your sale.
  17. I absolutely hear you, when people look at a beautiful car such as this, they do not realize how much things cost. I've spent $11,000 just in chrome on my car and $6,000 just on the material for the interior. You are asking a very fair price for this car. I wish you the best of luck.
  18. In my estimation, it is not an unreasonable price for this car, but I do agree with "BuicksBuicks" attempting to educate someone who does not want to be educated can only result in touching a sensitive nerve.
  19. Do you know if this car was available with the optional gravel guard/ valance that fits between the bumper and the trunk? Thanks,
  20. In the parts book this is referred to as part #8.214 Deflector, Rear fender gravel. The deflector provides support for the rear fender and prevents stones from damaging the inner portion of the rear fenders. I'm not sure if there is any interchangeability with other GM cars. The Buick parts manual states the part number is good for 50 and 70 series Buick.
  21. Hello I am looking for the stone guards/ deflector that are installed behind the rear wheels inside the rear fenders for a 1940 Super, or Roadmaster in decent shape. Thank you,
  22. I understand that some people make a living selling parts in this hobby, you wonder how some vendors sleep at night.
  23. I only say this because I had my stone guards removed and I intend to replace them, but $500 is not in the budget for them at this time. I have looked at my inner rear fenders and I can see where they were mounted, so placement will not be difficult.
  24. Ken, I would be more than happy with what you came up with. Although not perfect, it does look good.
