  1. I think I posted this incorrectly previously. I have a 1930 big six in England. Regretfully I have lost one single hubcap at a show today. Been in a bad mood since I noticed it and hoping to track one down to purchase. Kind regards Chris. Pic of the type I have which I believe are original and correct
  2. Hi all, bit late to post on this thread but hoping I may be able to obtain a hubcap for my big six pride and joy. Looks like a trophy hunter may of taken a liking today at a local car show to one of my caps. But perhaps I may of forgotten to nip it up tight…. Anyway gutted. Pic attatched of the style / pattern I need to be happy again. I’m in the uk. If I have posted in incorrect place could one of you kind folk suggest the best place. I’m definitely not going to get one of these in England. Kind regards Chris.
  3. Hi , yes I still look after the Buick,I hope for many years to come . I do have a lot of info passed on from previous owner who researched Maltbys a great deal . he lived near where there showroom was, im sure he would also be happy to chat about Maltbys ,the previous owner to him met with an employee who worked there and I have the detail of this and other info I'm happy to share , private message me and I'll pass my contact number for a chat. Thanks. Be nice to see your car I've not seen any other maltbys in the flesh.
  4. Thank you I have sent a personal message, what a story with his Pontiac! Great contact.
  5. Hi all, I'm in England and have purchased a really nice stock 1929 Pontiac big six sedan, I've got a few buicks and know exactly where to go stateside for my spares after years of trial and error with different sources to keep them on the road, any advice for the best contact for general consumable items , tune up kit, gaskets, etc etc would be appreciated. NEW or old stock .its looking like this old Pontiac is going to be tougher to get BASIC parts for than my early buicks. Thank you kind regards, Chris.
  6. Thank you for the kind responses, she should be back on the road in a few more weeks. Can't wait.
  7. Hi all, I have recently purchased a fantastic English bodied 1937 redfern buick coachbuilt by the maltby works sandgate Kent on a 37 right hand drive mclaughlin series 40 CHASSIS. I have had many early buicks over the years and I am definitely hooked on them.(even if it it a bit tough sometimes keeping them on the road here in the u.k) The car is pretty well known as had been previously owned by Stewart who was a member of the forum. And I was lucky enough to purchase the car a few months ago. I'm currently going over the car to insure she is as good as I can get her. Equipped with her original functioning full power hood (electric driven hydraulic) she is a very impressive motor and by far the nicest buick I have owned. The headlights and spotlights are original and were fitted to suit uk taste at the time. IF there is anyone who knows about a similar sister car built 1937 sold a good few years ago at auction (was black) it would be great to contact the owner. Any info on buick maltby cars would be appreciated. My car was the 37 Paris motor show car and has had an interesting life. Regards Chris (staffordshire England)
