  3. I'm selling my show quality 41 Buick two door. Immaculate, careful restoration inside and out. Eat off the engine compartment. See all details via this link: http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb/cto/4956973334.html Thanks. Would love to see this go to a good home. I'm downsizing. Steve
  4. Stunning show quality torpedo-styled 1941 Buick 46S Special two door coupe with no details left undone. Named "Bogie" for--well you know--Humphrey Bogart. The car would look right at home parked at the Beverly Hills Hotel under the portal. Rare Aberdeen Beige professional respray. Full, high quality and correct restoration less than 8k mi ago. Three speed manual. Exterior, interior, engine compartment are pristine, truly a "10". Very dry--no rust whatsoever--California and New Mexico car. Original 1941 NM plates. Unmolested owner's manual and many factory tags. Rare parade flag holder with five 48 star flags (pre Alaska and Hawaii!). Previously owned by two discerning, meticulous Buick nuts. I can take no credit for the fabulous condition of this car as they did all the work and the TLC. Dash is expertly faux painted to resemble burled walnut. All guages (Art-Deco beautiful!) work. Original clock rebuilt by expert clocksmith. New AM/FM CD player in custom wood cabinet in glove box compartment. Believe it or not, it has a well disguised after market air conditioner. Other fun stuff: a Gas Rationing sticker in front window, reflecting its wartime production and use. Car has been displayed twice at the Las Campanas Concorso and draws rave reviews. Drives quite well with a three speed column shift, cruising nicely at 65 on period correct Firestone two ply tires. Significant extras include: original oil base air cleaner; original radio unit (removed to make way for aftermarket air conditioning unit). Simply a a great car from a great period in American history. I'm certain you couldn't reproduce this complete restoration for anywhere close to my asking price. The reason I'm selling is that I just turned 70 and am downsizing. Thanks for your consideration. 505-988-5868 or jstevedavis@comcast.net Price: $44,500 Lotsa pictures on Hemmings: http://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/carsforsale/buick/46s/1724670.html
  5. Ideally, in good enough condition not to have to be replated. Pictures helpful. Contact: jstevedavis@comcast.net Thanks. Steve Davis BCCA #46041 55 Buick Special 2 Door Hardtop 41 Buick Special Sedanette
  6. I am considering changing the original filter in my air cleaner from a wet configuration to dry for neatness purposes alone. Any advice on how to do this? Tips? Suppliers for the filter? Appreciate it. Steve BCCA #46041

  8. Looking to replace the 264ci V-8 in my 55 Special. Would like to acquire the larger 322ci in a ready-to-run rebuilt condition. Please contact Steve jstevedavis@comcast.net
  9. This is a really nice, exceptionally well preserved head turning example of Buick's best. Only 56,300 original miles on this 44 year old classic. . .special factory "delete" exterior paint not offered as one of Riviera's standard offerings, Signal Red. This was a GM color designated for Buick, but not the Riviera. Older professional repaint with no cracks or shrinkage by GM dealer. This unique color and the fact that this model was ordered without the usual vinyl roof (which I personally think is disruptive to the great lines of these second generation Rivieras) really accentuates the nice lines of Bill Mitchell's iconic design. Excellent chrome, interior, glass, wheels. Original rolled and pleated interior in black is in excellent condition as are headliner and carpeting. Multiple pictures at: <!--StartFragment-->CIMG3794 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!<!--EndFragment--> Extensive mechanical sorting has all been done. . ., fuel pump, gas tank and lines, vacuum hoses, major tune-up and new dual exhaust. Rebuilt factory air unit blows strong and cold. New narrow white side wall radials with less than 2000 miles. Engine runs smoothly and quietly. The car drives like a dream, easily cruising at modern interstate speeds with 430-4 factory 360 horsepower engine. Original factory AM Buick radio has been rebuilt and is in top working order. Car also comes with original Owner's manual and original Buick Protect-O-Plate. Truly a pleasant drivable time capsule! Car is located in high and dry Santa Fe, NM, where it is an occasional weekend driver for me. I am a private collector/seller making room in my collection. I will consider driving and delivering the car within reasonable distance within the Southwest. The car meets all NADA "excellent" criteria for high retail of $20,800. I am offering at $15,900 to make room in my garage. Serious lookers call me (Steve) at 415-336-7214
  10. Hello, I'm looking for a factory replacement AM/FM radio in working order for my 1969 Riviera. Cosmetics important. . .no significant facia damage. OK to e-mail me at gyraffa@comcast.net Thanks in advance. Steve BCCA #2403
  11. Hi: Looking for an AM/FM radio in great working condition for my 69 Riviera. And, looking for a NOS or used functional electric antennae for my 55 Buick Special. Thanks! Steve jstevedavis@comcast.net
  12. I am the owner of a 1969 Rivi. . .my question is this: "When the ignition is turned off on the car, should the fuel gauge indicator fall back to the "E" (Empty) setting, or was it designed to sit on a point that reflects the amount of fuel actually in the tank?" Thanks in advance for any information you might provide! Steve Davis Riviera CC #13332 jstevedavis@comcast.net
  13. I have a 1969 Riviera and would appreciate knowing more about the intended factory functioning of the fuel gauge. Specifically, when the ignition is turned off, should the fuel level indicator descend to the "E" (empty) position. . .or was it designed to stay in a "hold" position, indicating the actual amount of gas in the tank at the time? Thanks in advance for any information you might be able to provide! Steve Davis BCCA#4031 jstevedavis@comcast.net
  14. A really nice example across the board. 56,100 miles, 3,000 by me personally. Great driver. Extensive mechanical reconditioning since my purchase eighteen months ago. One very nice repaint at GM dealership in original Ruby Red. All metal, no distracting vinyl top. Contact me for a portfolio of photographs and a description of the car and work done to it on my watch. I am offering at $17,000, very close to my bottom line. Naturally, I've invested much more, but need to make room for a 1955 Buick project I'm working on. Car is garaged with me in Santa Fe. jstevedavis@comcast.net
  15. Looking for rebuilt or (dare I wish?) NOS hood hinges for my 1955 Buick Special. e-mail me @gyraffa@comcast.net
