  1. Just saw another one on market place in Raleigh, NC. 11000
  2. I have seen at least two advertised on the marketplace in Florida. My search is for area code 34601. This has been in the past month.
  3. Beautiful car, more photos, location and price might help create interest.
  4. I found a 1936 cabriolet less than two hours from my house. Older restoration that shows little to none of its age. Has period correct speed equipment.
  5. Several chipped teeth on second gear. I think the gear is available, need to find a rebuilder in my area.
  6. What models of Buick have the same transmission as a roadmaster. Also what other years would be the same as a 1940. Thanks in advance Lou
  7. Thanks all, I been there will 20 thousand in cash, like the wire or cashier check better.
  8. Anyone from NC to NJ with a nice 1935-1937 Ford coupe, convertible coupe of phaeton for sale. I do not want a trailer queen nor do I need anymore projects. Older restoration of clean original would be considered. Must be good mechanically. I love body work, I had mechanical work. Let me know what you have. Heading out to Hershey if nothing shows up within a reasonable distance. Lou
  9. I went to Hershey for many yrs and stopped about 10 yrs ago. Family issues prevented me from going. I plan to go this year and I will be looking for a 1935-1937 Ford Coupe, possibly a convertible coupe, maybe even a phaeton. My question regards money. In the old days I just took thousands in cash, don't want to do that any longer. My bank is Wells Fargo, are there places where you can go with a potential buyer and transfer funds or validate funds. Times have changed. Lou
  10. I have a 9000 lb warn winch, pulled a 40 Buick roadmaster with two locked wheels on trailer with no problem.
  11. 30,000 is very reasonable. I am currently restoring a 1940 76S that is Monterey blue and silver French grey, very similar color combo. Everything for these cars are expensive. Cloth alone for the interior was 1700. They are beautiful driving cars. I have only seen two other 1940 roadmaster coupes in all the shows I have gone to in the last forty years. Buy it and enjoy.
  12. Still trying to find a 1940 Buick Transmission that is in good condition. Car is a Roadmaster coupe, but I assume any big motor 1940 Trans will fit, anyone know what other years are compatible.
  13. I have had seven tire trailers with trailers in my years of towing. All seven were deemed defective and all seven were Goodyear tires. I am not a fan.
  14. I just took the top of the transmission case off and one gear is in bad shape. I believe it is 2nd gear. Does anyone have a good trans available. I live near South Boston, VA, but travel to South Jersey nearly every month. I do see that this gear is readily available, but I have no experience rebuilding a transmission. I am currently in Brooksville Florida for the winter. Lou
  15. Does anyone produce the plastic inserts that go on the door/window moulding. They fit into the chrome. Looking for inserts for a roadmaster coupe. Thanks
  16. I am working on a 76S right now in the same color combo. Nice car.
  17. Most likely lacquer, but acrylic enamel was coming into favor also.
  18. I spoke to the guy about the car about a month ago. He has had the car a long time, stopped driving it when gas tank started leaking. He had tank repaired and it is back in car, but he has not started it to my knowledge. Said car ran fine. I made an offer but I guess it was too low.
  19. I am wondering if anyone has a source for the carpet/floormat for these cars. This is a couple. Looks like it was rubber with a carpet section moulded in.
  20. Thanks, I think I have located a used one, waiting for a price. I bought the car 40yrs ago as a rust free, dent free car. Motor had a bad bearing, so it was completely rebuilt, I had chrome done, engine turning done and most of paint work done, then traded it for something else to a friend. Car sat, untouched for 35yrs in his garage. Only thing he did was lose the hood. I bought it back a few months ago and I am ready to start again, got it running the other day, but tank is shot. Located a hood and now it is time to move forward, this time it is getting finished. I will post a few photos when I get a chance.
  21. In VA, you can apply for an abandoned vehicle title. It takes several weeks, because you have to post the car on a website the DMV runs. I have had to use it twice for lost titles and it worked fine. After you follow all their steps you get form that allows you to go in and get a clean title in your name. Legal.
  22. Just discovered the gas tank in my 1940 buick is leaking. It is a roadmaster sport coupe, but I would think that other models would fit. Appears they changed the tanks in 41, since they seem readily available. If anyone has one or has a source let me know. Thanks
