  1. Hi everyone, I noticed in the '56 Olds marketing brochures that there's a 'hard top' convertible cover (fiberglass?) that was available as an option. I've also seen these referred to as 'parade' covers, essentially allowing someone to sit on the convertible top during a parade. Is anyone aware of these, and whether they're available? Thanks for any advice/guidance.
  2. Thanks for the recommendations. Since it's a long way from original, AACA judging isn't in the near future. I like the look of the selection at Juliano's, think I'll get a couple with retractors for the front, and a couple simply lap belts for the rear, along with their under floor anchor plates. Wish me luck!
  3. Looking to add lap belts (2 front, 2 rear) to my '56 Olds Super 88 convertible. Does anyone have experience with this, suggestions on where to source (outside of usual Google search), etc? I'm also wondering if there's a place that makes a 'parade' cover for this car. I saw that in the '56 Olds catalog it was an available accessory, would love to know who, if anyone, makes one of these. Thanks.
  4. Thanks, I will try the Heritage Center.
  5. Wondering if anyone would know where (if) any production records exist for 1956 Oldsmobiles, specifically those built in Lansing, MI. I'm going to be the new caretaker of a '56 Super 88 convertible that has spent the last 20+ years (at least) in Canada (Toronto area), and I'm interested in finding out if it was originally sold there or shipped there sometime in the prior 40 years. Thanks for any guidance you can provide.
  6. Thanks 55er... one thing is for sure it’s not black anymore, but I think it looks a lot better like this... next is to figure out what trim code ‘320’ stands for?
  7. Just picked this up, it’s not an original but I think we’re really going to enjoy it...
  8. Hi 55er, Thanks, wonder if the 55’s were the same. Do know the details of any of the other items on that tag?
  9. Hoping to get some help on decoding this cowl tag. It shows paint code 10, but I can’t find that color on any of the ‘56 color chips I’ve located online. is there a list of the codes and their meaning available somewhere? Thanks, JohnnyKO
  10. There's one on eBay right now, not sure why it's listed the way it is... 1957 Buick it appears to be a little better than "reasonable operating condition". Good luck.
  11. Hi all, @60FlatTop, thanks for looking at the pics, yes, the ones on the listing were 2005, those on the OneDrive page I also posted seem to have been taken just this past week. I just had these texted to me today, does that look like the correct place for the VIN plate? Also, sadly, for $1000+/day, my wife will make me take her to CA to check it out... Thanks for the help! Still looking... John
  12. Anyone know anything about this car? Here's a link to the eBay auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/231623953410?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2648&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT it's the second time around for this car on eBay. I received this link to more (better) pictures as well... 1953 Buick Super Convertible I'd appreciate any comments from anyone on this forum if they know the car, the history, etc. It seems like quite a deal (which always make the antenna go up), and it appears to be in TX although the auction says CA. i have a call into the owner for more details, just wondered if it looked familiar to anyone. I'm in MI it'd be a long haul to go just to see it in person. Thanks.
  13. Hi Cadzilla, Yes, I personally drove 400km to see that car, it needs lots of work. Contact me privately if you'd like to see more pictures that I took when I was there. John
  14. Anyone look at this one recently posted on eBay? http://www.ebay.com/itm/271624951850?forcerRptr=true&item=271624951850&viewitem=&sspagename=ADME:SS:SS:US:1120 Looks like quite a discount from its 'real' value, comments appreciated. I also noticed that the '55 ruby convertible that didn't sell @ $50K is re-listed on eBay again with a lower BIN price... http://www.ebay.com/itm/1955-Buick-Roadmaster-Convertible-Outstanding-Restoration-Ready-To-Enjoy-/121403974129pt=US_Cars_Trucks&forcerrptr=true&hash=item1c443da1f1&item=121403974129&nma=true&si=Bpzp392%252FrGfvO%252Bc0xLtemxyH8VM%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 John
  15.
