  1. It's always been interesting to me that the industry stylists seemed to be in lock-step for the 1936 models -- almost all makes had essentially the same grill design. You can spot a '36 from a mile, no matter the manufacturer!
  2. Very handsome car, and reasonably priced. Interesting that it doesn't have power windows -- I would have thought they were standard on a car like this.
  3. Helping brainstorm this problem is way above my paygrade, but I've been thinking along the same lines as what AB-Buff suggested, above, just in terms of one of the most elementary diagnostic approaches. If something worked before and now no longer works, what was changed? In this case, what changed was the metal stitching job. Is there any possibility that the metal stitching job somehow resulted in one of the water passages becoming blocked? As Buff says, checking for that would be a good idea.
  4. I believe that this car still has the M6 "semi-automatic" (hence the "safety clutch"), but they changed the gear selector to look more like a fully automatic transmission. Maybe someone else can chime in here to resolve this question. I don't believe Chrysler had a fully-automatic transmission until the introduction of "PowerFlite" in 1954.
  5. Thank you, George. That must be why the owner/seller thinks it's a "cruise control." Kind of indicates that the seller is not an old car person. Sure looks like a great car, however!
  6. Looks like a great original, as others have commented. But what about the seller's claim that everything works "including the cruise control."? What could he be talking about? A pull-out hand throttle on the dash?
  7. Wow, another great MoPar deal. This is a lot of car for the money, and looks to be in very fine condition.
  8. Our local BCA chapter was invited to attend a town car show in Los Altos Hills yesterday. Buicks were well-represented.
  9. Apart from the title problem, this appears to be a solid car at a reasonable price. Is it possible that there's some other number (on the frame?) that matches the number on the title?
  10. Matt, I'm reading this and thinking about the progress you have made. So it turned out that there was more that needed to be done to this car than you realized -- the important thing is that you are finding out what else needs to be done and doing it. Not making the Lincoln meet must be a disappointment, but I'm sure it's a relief at some level as well. You've worked your butt off and deserve to take a break. Then proceed at a more leisurely pace and before long, you will have achieved your goal of having a beautiful, reliable car.
  11. Thanks, everyone, for your suggestions. I removed the cut-off switch and I will just have to wait and see if the problem reoccurs.
  12. Can you spell that out a bit? I'm not understanding it, but I'm not well-educated on the electrical system.
  13. Thanks, Ed. I will explore that avenue as soon as I get some help on how to do it. (I know from another thread that you are in the pool, so I don't want to disturb you.) 😄 Well, as a matter of fact, I have that exact cutoff switch. The first suggestion I got when this happened the first time back in April was that the cutoff switch was the culprit. But I took it apart and made sure it was clean, and I couldn't figure out how it could possibly cause an intermittent problem like this. But getting rid of it is certainly a very simple thing to do! Thank you for the help.
