  1. Correct - the vehicle sold through Bring a Trailer. Thanks for the interest.
  2. This is a 14", 6V electric fan, usable on our old 6V vehicles to give a little supplemental cooling on hot days, or when you're idling down a parade route! It's new in the box. I bought it as a supplemental cooling fan for my Buick, but ended up solving the cooling issue and didn't need it. Take the stress off your cooling system and let this fan help keep your temps down. $60 Shipped!
  3. Keep me updated - send me a PM if you're interested in discussing this further!
  4. Historically, BAT auctions don't really spike up until the last 12 hours or so...which is understandable, why pump up the price when there's still days left on the auction?
  5. Indeed I do. Of course you can bid on the auction at any time, but at this time I'd be willing to pull the auction and sell the car outright with all spare parts and tools for $16.5k.
  6. Hello Everyone, It is with great sadness that I announce I must sell my 1931 Model 57. I am moving overseas for work, and can't take her with me. I bought this car from Mark Shaw in Oregon about 2 years ago, and it has been an absolute blast to drive and own. Mark is a Buick fanatic, and his deep knowledge of all things Buick show in his restoration of this car. It runs perfectly and strongly - starts up on the first try every time, has good compression on every cylinder, and holds 20+ lbs of oil pressure. She's a strong old girl! She has been used in parades and

  8. Quick update, everyone. I adjusted the valve clearances on the Buick a few weeks ago, and she's running a lot smoother now! Several clearances were too loose, and several were too tight. That took care of some noise by itself. With regard to the other noise - I had the bottom end of the engine dismantled, inspected, and re-assembled by a specialty shop here in Houston (the owner has a Model 90 of his own), and he didn't identify any causes of the noise or any causes for concern. There's no loss of power, no hesitation, no rod knock, etc. I'll keep investigating as I
  9. Mike, Not sure how much this helps, but I have a '31 Model 57 in Houston, and would be happy to make it available for any measurements or mechanical references you need.
  10. Sean Ornduff in Tomball knows his stuff - not sure what your budget is, but if you need a guy who has the technical skill to fix your ride, he'll get it done quick and easy. http://www.seanornduff.com/
  11. Do you have any pictures of it in the daylight? Profile / Rear shots? Engine bay?
  12. Hello All, My '31 Buick has wooden wheels. I'm trying to learn more about what I can do to keep them in good shape. I've seen plenty of pages on restoring wood wheels, but nothing on general continuous upkeep. I live in a very hot, humid area, so I probably have less to worry about than most, but I want to keep those wheels strong! Any advice yall can offer? Just slap a coat of linseed oil on them every so often?
  13. Regarding a broken spring at the lower end of the push rod? I've got some time this weekend to dog in and figure it out. I'll report back what I find!
  14. I've ridden in that Caballero, it's a slick ride!
