  1. Try reading the article Road Trip Route 66 . Very interesting article while mentioning the cost and miles per gallon of his trip and adventures.
  2. Its a numbers matching south calif car. I have had the car for about 12 yrs. I started to restore it but have lost interest in the project(age and money) I put new side glass with new chrome from Auto City Glass . The car can be seen on Cars on under the Pontiac listings. It is still a project car. It runs good but has a bad hydramatic trans. It needs a complete interior and new exhaust system. I bought and installed a new wiring harness that is about 90 % installed. All the exterior lights work, headlights ,directional and parking lights. Brakes work good including the Emergency brake. Doors and trunk lock and unlock with the key. Rear Qtr windows need final adjustments to make it 100% water tight. New weatherstripping around all the windows. Bumpers need to be rechromed. Its an original car that has very good bones . If a guy completes the car it would be a $25-30,000 ride or more. Right now it is a good driver quality car. I bought new tail light lens and back up lenses along with all new Pontiac letters on the trunk. I also bought a re-conditioned original radio. It needs the power steering pump rebuilt because it leaks, maybe just seals but to do it right I would rebuild it. I have all the original wheels and hub caps in the trunk. The front and rear windshields are original. It will need a new antennae for the radio. it will need new wiper blades and motor installed. The original color was white bottom with a blue top. Its not perfect but its a good car. Check out the pics on the web site above, it has my contact info on my ad. Thanks for responding Gary PS.....I will see if I can send you some pics on this site but I am not very good at these computers
  3. Would you be interested in a 59 Pontiac?
  4. Hello Mike, my name is Gary and I have a Mitchell Overdrive that I bought from a very good friend of mine estate. I bought the entire drivetrain from his son. It came out of a 31 Model A coupe. His son is making a 50 style hot rod with a V 8 flat head with a 5 speed tranny. The Mitchell unit has one trip from LA Calif to Reno and back. I don't know what part of the country you live but I have since left Calif and reside in Kingman Az. I have had my Model A for over 54 years and decided to leave it all original, that's the reason I am responding to your ad. From your ad I think you are only looking for a trans not a whole drive train with a cut torque tube,axle , engine etc. I would sell the Mitchell for $2000.00 if you might be interested or $3500.00 for everything. I can take some photos and text them to you if you send me your tel number. I am better with photos from my phone than the computer. Gary
  5. You might check out Grain it Technology out of Florida. They sell everything you need to do it yourself. I bought a kit and did it myself with great results. I would highly recommend them.
  6. Paul, Ann"s Buick parts on ebay is offering the piece of trim you need at a price of $150.00
  7. Hello Dan : As you can probably tell I am not very good on the computer. I am not sure if this is the correct way of contacting you, but here goes.
  8. Hello Dan You wrote a great article on your trip with your Buick. I really enjoyed it from start to finish. I know you probably don't remember me but I met you a couple of years ago at the Rt 66 Fun in Kingman,Az and you gave me the info about AACA web site. I was wondering when you continue your trip in April if you were going to be coming through Hackberry on Rt 66 and stopping there. I live about another ten miles or so down the road and I would like to see your 49 again. I have by 47 Sedanet back on the road again, it might make a good photo shoot at the old station. Let me know what you think. Again, it was a great article that you wrote and shared. Gary
  9. What part of England do you reside? Have you found the exterior trim pieces you are looking for? I know this is an older ad but do you still have your Buick?
