  4. Mr. Earl, I would like the 1955 part guide. Regular snail mail ok. What is the name and address so I might send a check?
  5. Seems to be the way with roadmasters of this vintage. Unfortunately in my case I don't even know what to call them.
  6. Mr. Earl, thank you for your reply. I think I may not have asked for the correct pieces in my requested wtb. What I need are the left and right lower 1/4 chrome pieces as seen in the photo below. Any leads?..
  7. Need rear 1/4 chrome trim both left and right for a 1955 Roadmaster 76c. Needs to be able to be re chromed. Also need tail light assemblies left and right.
  8. Pete, thank you for the prompt reply. I will take that head if you get your contact info back to me and how I can pay you. You wouldn't happen to have a right exhaust manifold or heat shield for the starter from that engine? Jim Schoepfer createkstone@aol.com 203-631-6707 cell
  9. Need right head for 1955 322 nailhead to fit 70c series. also need starter heat shield and right side manifold
  10. Hi all. I'm a newly retired car guy. Purchased a 1955 roadmaster convertible dream car last year. Now almost fully dismantled. This is my second frame off restoration. The first a much easier1955 MGTF. This Buick however has seemed to have less visual information I can find than did the MG. maybe I am just not looking in the right spots?? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
  11. Sorry if I am running down some old road for you folks, but new to post. 1955 roadmaster convertible . Does any one know a good source for photos detailing frame paint and or appearance of frame/suspension as it left the factory? Also engine bay photos. Also interested in inspection paint/ marks for 1955 road master convertible.
  12. I guess this is what I was looking for in my first post. Nothing like reinventing the wheel. Thanks for the link.
  13. [h=2]Re: sourcing material 1955 Buick[/h] Since my last post I have done some experimenting, and may have come up with a solution for small areas where the engine turning is worn away. 1. On the piece lay up a grid centering the swirl circles in pencil. 2. Set up your drill press to index horizontally lining up with line#1 on the pencil grid. 3. Take a standard #2 pencil and center it in your drill press chuck, eraser side facing material face. 4.put a very small amount of tooth paste on the aluminum. 5. Put the drill press on a medium/slow speed and press the pencil eraser down onto the toothpaste/aluminum/grid spot on the piece. 6.it is slow and takes a while to develop the right amount of pressure/technique, but to remediate a small area it works fairly well. Needless to say. Practice and test this method on the back of the piece to perfect your technique and amount of paste and pressure to get the right look.

  15. Anyone know where I can find a vacuum diagram for a 55 roadmaster convertible? Lots of missing lines I can see, don't know what else may be missing.
