  1. Over spray includes the distributor cap? Possibly. My choke housing on 60 Electra has green paint over spray. 38k mile car.
  2. I see that however I believe the castle clamp at the radiator is off to the side. 9 o'clock position as you face the radiator. It does not provide a clean look if at the 12 o'clock position. I have placed mine at the 9 o'clock position. The Corbin clamp you have pictured I can't find that style in any pictures. These are more modern I believe. I do find the wire type Corbin clamps for all hose application of that era. Mostly Chevy heater hoses.
  3. I learned plenty with my 73 Estate Wagon with 100k on the engine. It looked very much like this Buick under the hood. Everything else was in great shape.
  4. That is the "I don't want to sell it" price."
  5. Over 100k miles. Probably needs a timing chain and gears. There is red overspray on the distributor. Body looks ok. New upper radiator hose. I has that going for it. Probably be a good runner with little effort.
  6. Good Lord, it has the spare tire from the Dodge in the movie A Christmas Story. Maypop Brand.
  7. Click this link to another forum discussion on hose clamps. The picture from a Motor Trend article shows castle clamp at the thermostat hose end. Corbin wire style clamp at the fuel filter inlet.
  8. I do not know the housing number. I took a look and did not find a number.
  9. The bracket can be made from steel stock found at the hardware store. If you can't find an original that is. I do not have factory air. I suspect you have a 2 barrel carb? If so, perhaps another member can take a pic of their set up. I have a 4 barrel.
  10. I did find a picture. They are wire type Corbin clamps. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I also was able to confirm castle clamps on the radiation hoses. I have these already. I could not confirm castle clamps on the heater hoses.
  11. I was fortunate to find an original on eBay.
  12. Beautiful! Nice work. Enjoy driving!!!!!
  13. Of the numerous fuel line clamps available, what is the correct clamp for 1960 models?
  14. A few things....there is a tack under the dash. The muffler appears to be a Flow Master and not a Walker. 2 inch drop? Suspect the car was raced around the neighborhood a bit? I would be very suspect of this Buick.
  15. I did have two pictures already from when I found the correct fuel bowl filter set up. Installed on the engine. See the bracket on top of the fuel bowl housing? This is were the piece that is taped to your valve cover is mounted. Now, the question is where does yours get a vacuum source. I have a 4 barrel. The vacuum source is gotten off the T at the manifold just behind the thermostat housing. I will post a picture later as I don't have one currently in my 60 Electra file
  16. I was searching the web and came upon this thread. Pete, your comment was dead on. The evaluator was nothing short of tough on the car. She remains unrestored(the items the evaluator mentioned repaired). She will be at Hershey this year.
  17. The item taped to the valve cover. There is a bracket that also holds the glass bulb fuel filter for this. This item also has a vacuum hose to it off the carb. Currently none are attached. Would you like a picture of mine so you may see what is missing and needs to be added.
