  1. Brian, thanks for checking, not sure how I missed your response. Maybe there is something about the full size top frames that precludes them. I know a 62 Special, and 65 and 70 Chevelles have them, so I expected the other too as well. Scott
  2. Bob's comment about the door flipper had me going out to take another look. While all the dimensions seem to be the same, the difference appears to be this little part of the casting that sticks up on the coupe version. Seems like, if you really had to you could grind off the extension for use on a convertible, although it doesn't appear it will interfere with anything. This is where mine is broken on my convertible. Allowing the assembly to flex. It seems to be pot metal, so a good repair is unlikely. Thanks again for everyone's input. If you happen to have a good, driver quality or better driver's side vent window assembly you'd like to get rid of, let me know. Scott
  3. Thanks all! That verifies what I need. Scott
  4. Are the vent window assemblies for a full size '58 the same for coupe and convertible? From what I can measure with them still in the door, they seem to be. Thanks Scott
  5. Maybe this will counter balance Doug's post...
  6. It was really nice all last week and was able to drive a convertible to work everyday. Cold and cloudy this weekend and predicting 1.5" snow for Monday night...
  7. Looks like a Lotus Europa to me. One of my favorite cars, but I can't fit inside one. Heck, at 6' 5" I barely fit in my '54 Roadie (top down helps though)! Scott
  8. Black walls in front, whitewalls in back, for when you can't decide! 😄
  9. My 54 Buick and 58 Cadillac convertibles are missing the filler piece that goes in the top of the piston covers. I’ve attached a picture of the one in my Chevelle for reference (red). Does anyone know of a source for these, or what the correct name for them is so I can search for them? Thanks Scott
  10. Made it up to and back from the BCA meet in Denver on Sat. Finished up the torque ball seal et al. about 11pm the night before. Met Father Buick and several others while wandering the show and swap meet. Stopped at the end of the driveway an took this. Scott
  11. This is one of many issues I have to deal with too... I plan on registering and coming up maybe Friday evening and definitely Saturday. Hopefully I'll be driving the '54, but my daily driver 63 Skylark will be there if not. I'll be parking out with the other riff-raff in the parking lot. For those looking to imbibe there are many breweries and distilleries close by. Coors tour is good, but Boulder is a ways away. Here are a couple of helpful websites with interactive maps: Colorado Brewery list Drinker's Guide to Colorado There are at least half a dozen close by the Hotel. If you are looking to partake of other things recently legalized in Colorado, you are on your own. ? Scott
  12. Took the Roadmaster to the local C&C yesterday and parked next to a wonderful all original 51 Roadmaster. I had seen the car at other local shows but never got a chance to talk to the owner. It was originally an east coast car owned by a priest. On the way home I managed to run out of gas about 10 minutes from home. Still looks pretty good sitting on the side of the road though. Running out of gas caused it to vapor lock in the record heat we're having, 91 degrees yesterday, 20 above normal. Hope it cools off for the nationals in a couple of weeks. Scott
  13. I've got a set of 4. One center is loose. None of them is perfect, as you can see. As Woody Michel says, they are kind of thin and would straighten out with some light hammer and dolly work. Since they won't fit the 13" wheels on my '63, I'd like to get them off the shelf. How about $100, plus shipping, or make me an offer. Thanks Scott
  14. Last I read the only one of these cars that had been found was Corvette: https://www.solidaxlecorvettemi.com/?lightbox=imagezy7 From what I remember it had been repainted and sold on after the show, but the original paint was found during restoration and it was then restored as it appeared for the show.
