  1. Hello everyone! I do appreciate everyones input, it really does help a lot and i value your time and knowledge. I bought the 4bbl intake back in 2017 and have had it sitting on a shelf since! I found one in a California junkyard and paid about $50 shipped. Im going to slap it in the ol 364 one day and see how it does.
  2. Nice looking Roadmaster, Lance! I am taking too long to finish one 57, can't imagine owning more!
  3. Hi John, and thank you for your reply! The two pictures that are in the ad above are two examples of paintings i have done, but i will include an image of a 1940 Buick i painted for a customer and a painting of the Titanic. You should get a painting! (If you want) Thanks again for your message.
  4. I am open to a couple more Buick paintings. Please see the advertisement below and let me know if you would like your car turned into a piece of art that you can use on shirts, framed on a wall or to show off to all your car friends! All of my work is done by hand. No tracing or photo manipulation. Let me know via email, phone or PM if interested. If not allowed on this page I apologize. Move it to where it needs to be, (hopefully not the trash). Thanks, BT
  5. I'd like to get it fixed as much as i can, because it does matter to me, silly. ?
  6. Thank you two so much. I appreciate the input. I'll have to try the odometer "trick." I think it's the speedometer itself, but it's possible it's the transmission gears.
  7. Hello. I was wondering if there is a way to adjust the speedometer on my 1957 Buick without taking it all apart again? Mainly I'm asking if they have an access hole in it to adjust the resistance. I've had the speedometer tinkered with a couple times, it used to not work at all. Now it works fine, but it's a little too sensitive, saying I am going 55mph when I'm going say 30. I believe the problems lies in the speedometer rather than the transmission, since I've messed with the speedometer a couple times and I know for a fact it was completely broken before. Thanks for any help! BT
  8. Well.... "pole building" is probably more accurate. And yes, 10' doors! One is shorter due to finding it a lot cheaper. I appreciate the kind words! My dad is glad to have the car out of his woodshop.
  9. Hello all. I may be long forgotten on here by now - It's been a while. I'm slowly creeping my way back into the internet car world. Super fast updates on what I have been doing over the past year: - Built a garage for my 1957 Buick - Ended up buying my SECOND project car. - Garage is already full. While I did not work on the Special itself that much last year, I consider building a polebarn just for it, (and now my second car), progress on its restoration, haha. I'll include a couple pictures of the Buicks new home! I love my new polebarn, and I thank my father for helping me build it. I'm ready to get back into staying updated on here, asking for help, giving advice when I can and get to finishing up the Buick. Cat Update: Oswald still rules! He helped build the garage. BT
  10. Awesome. Thanks so much for the information. Helps a lot. So even the 6 cylinder chevys are the same as a v8? Or are all v8 bell housing for Chevy the same ?
  11. Really? Awesome! Thank you so much. I believe those two do interchange. The only concern I have is if a Chevy 350 and 327 bell housing bolt the same. I will pm you if you would like
  12. Hello. While I start scouring all the salvage yards for one, I figured I could try here as well. I have a 67 Saginaw 4 speed that I am wanting to bolt to a Chevy 350. I was wondering if anyone happened to have a spare one they would be willing to sell fairly cheap? I so, please let me know via PM or comment. Thanks so much!
  13. I'm sorry!!! I just now saw this! The guy that did mine is just a local friend that lives near me and happens to do upholstery for a living, haha. Really talented and nice guy. Did exactly what I asked.
  14. Yeah, ill definitely check it out. This car is a 59 though, and i think its a full frame car
  15. I hear what youre saying. Im not jumpin right on it, trying to do my research. So this car is a full frame car, not a unibody?
  16. Oh its all good! I just feel dumb that i know almost nothing about these old dodge cars. Ive never messed with a unibody on a classic like that before. I know they are thinner than just a standard frame, so i wonder how the thing would hold up after sitting for a while. Do they tend to rust out moreso?
  17. I actually did not know that for 1959! Thanks for that information. Yeah, im just Trying to get all the information i can on this car as i can. I know about the GMs but not this as well. So sorry if i come off as a "newbie."
  18. I hear ya. Im trying to get more information on it before i settle on anything. I know how they can go! I have a 1957 Buick thats more of a harder find too. I know what i am in for as far as engine rebuilds and floor pans. Those arent a big headsche for me. The main thing is the shape of the body (fenders, hood, quarters, etc.) And the frame. And yes, it has been sitting a looong time. Which scares me.
  19. Hello pete, and thanks for the reply! The car does have factory ac i believe. It does have power steering and windows for sure. This is the only picture i have sadly. I didnt think much about the car until i walked away from it!
  20. It looks near complete, minus that headlight bezel and a taillight lens. The roof has a big punch in it also, which im not too worried about since it had no holes and could be popped out easily. I do kbow it has factory power windows, steering, and AC. Located in Iowa
