    1957 Chevy Serial number / Body Number dilemma

    I would ask on the VCCA site just to be sure of what was going on in 57. Dave

    1957 Chevy Serial number / Body Number dilemma

    Sorry I wasn't clear. For example when my Cabriolet (1931) was made all Cabriolet bodies were made in the Cleveland Fisher body plant then shipped to the other assembly plants. I am suggesting if the op has a low volume body it is possible they were not made near the assembly plant. This has been discussed on the VCCA site but I don't remember if it went to 57. Of course the op could have a high volume body and that would be something else.

    1957 Chevy Serial number / Body Number dilemma

    Is it a convertible? Some low volume bodies where produced in Fisher plants not in the vicinity of the assembly plant. Dave I would ask on this site if you don't get an answer here; https://vccachat.org/

    C-1 (1953-1962) Corvette help needed

    Using a tape measure and not putting it on the lift I got a radius rod length of 18 1/4 The mounting measurements at front frame top to center of bolt 1 1/2, and 2" at the rear measuring from between the brake backing plate and the u bolt. Next time on the lift I can get more precise measurements but it may be a little while. Dave
  5. I had a Black 63 that I wanted to do the same thing. I found a 63 in a junk yard outside of Charlotte that was an aire car. I visited it many times and finally decided it was just to much work for my skills and ability. If you really wanted to add air a parts car with air would be the way to go. The yard had nothing but interesting 1950-1970 cars and was on the road to Denver, NC if my questionable memory is correct. This was in 1978 so it is probably long gone. Dave

    Resistor spark plugs okay ?

    AC superseded 46 by R46/R45 so I would not be worried about the plug. Why aren't you running solid wire? Dave

    1928 Buick 28-47

    Not Mine Located in Soperton, GA which is southeast of Macon. Here is the ad copy from facebook market place; You can contact the owner at nine one two -245-2222, his name is Franklin Quinn Mullis. There are more pictures on facebook that you may be able to pull up or give him a call I am sure he can send more. 1928 Buick Master Sedan $15,500 Now $13,950 Soperton, GA I purchased this rare vehicle just about two years ago with the intention to restore. When purchased, the engine started a ran. Over the last year, the interior seats, doors panels, and roof were reupholstered and sealed. I have lost interest and decided to let someone else have his rare vehicle to completely restore. The only restoration left is to have the carburetor rebuilt, from sitting almost two years, and have new tires installed. If this is something you are up for, Message me. FYI, this isn’t an opportunity for you to trade. I’m pretty sure I don’t need anything that i can’t purchase myself. However, this is an opportunity to purchase a rare 91 year old vehicle that is in really good shape. Has bullet hole in original rear window and deflection in the roof panel.

    32 66s front inner bearing#

    There was some consolidation done many years ago and the individual bearing components were sold as sets. My parts history shows the first two numbers mentioned above being superseded by 909026, no mention of the third number. It would be worth a try to see if 909026 was indeed the whole bearing that you need. Locatebearings has been very helpful in getting original NDH bearings. The aftermarket companies may also list a set but it would be their part number, only a guess but something like B26. Dave
  9. It is my understanding that Chevrolet did not start stamping the serial number on the frame until much later. I believe it was with the Corvette to start with. It has been discussed many times on the VCCA site but I could not bring up the posts in a search. Why don't you ask there and see what they say. https://vccachat.org/ubbthreads.php/forum_summary.html Dave

  13. A picture of my dad's # 89 race car at his service station in Manhasset, NY. I just noticed an interesting convertible just behind it, any ideas on what that may be? He kept racing until my mom gave him the choice of racing or her, it worked out okay. Dave

    1957 Tbird generator

    Does your manual spell out how to polarize the generator and has it been done? Maybe you don't have to on a ford system. Dave

    Need pulley for generator

    I have one. I would think a small rate box shipping would do. Send me a pm on what you think is a fair price. Dave
