  1. Outstanding! Thank you very much for the insight.
  2. I have an Oldsmobile service manual (1953) that states to use the tool J-720 for a certain job on the front suspension. A google search shows that it it is used in earlier manuals also, but shows no photos or descriptions. Does anyone have a picture of this tool, or knowledge of what this tool is and it's intended use? Any help is appreciated.
  3. This will be my last post to this thread. I have bought a 1953 Olds 98. I hope to be able to enjoy participating in local show and shines for many years to come. A friend checking the old girl out ... If anyone can help me decode this data plate ... I would be grateful ... Shes a classy old car I will be participating in the Olds forums I guess!
  4. Hi guys, I just purchased a new to me 1953 Oldsmobile 98, four door sedan. I am in Canada and I thought this would be a Canadian car (different from US models), but it turns out that all 98 models were American made models. I got that information from the Canadian maintenance manual. I need some help with the decoding of the data plate please. STYLE 53 - 3069D = 1953 model 98 four door sedan ? BODY L17642 = Lansing with a serial number for the body ? TRIM 91 = ????? PAINT 50 - 51 = ????? ACC K2
  5. Thanks for all the great photos! I have always liked this 52 Buick. I heard that it might be for sale so I might be looking into this soon.
  6. Just some misc. ramblings. A few mistakes I made along the way ... Irregardless of my life situation, I made a few mistakes while selecting this car for my restoration project. After thinking about it for a while ... I should have joined this forum ... BEFORE ... purchasing the car. That way, I could have gotten good advice in what to look for ... before making a purchase of a project car. The car was bought sight unseen - I should have had someone local check the car out before I bought it. The engine was seized when I picked it up - The person checking it out locally would have spotted t
  7. I have a list of 50's Pontiac manuals for sale. I am listing them here, before they go to eBay. Buyers pay actual shipping charges plus packing materials (from Canada). There are no handling charges. Combined shipping for multiple items of course. Prices are in US funds. All books are used and have some shop staining. Non of these books are mint. I consider a used book cannot be in excellent or mint condition. The best it can be in my opinion is very good. I will edit this post and remove items as they are sold ... Craftsman service news $5 each almost all of them in fair (binder holes ripped)
  8. I will be getting a driver ... probably this summer ... and I will show it off here Keith. I have been following the for sale ads on this forum. Good cars at realistic prices ... and a fine bunch of folks, I might just get one out of this forum. It even might be a Buick ... who knows
  9. The car sold this morning ... it went more quickly than I expected ... maybe that's for the better ... I will still be hanging around this forum. You are a very nice bunch of guys! Thanks again for all the best wishes, but we are doing fine now.

  11. Sad day for me ... after a long and soul searching debate with my wife and family ... I am announcing that I am abandoning my restoration project. I have had some life altering events happen to my family and I this year ... and the best decision for me is to stop the project and move on. I will regret that I could not complete my dream of restoring a car ... but it would have been far worse for me, if I had not tried. I would have always regretted not trying. I will be selling the car as a project locally ... and if that doesn't pan out ... then I will part it out. Please don't send me reques
