  1. Sorry folks...the car has been moved to the back of my building and had been under a foot of snow for the past few months!! Looks like it is warming up and I can get out there to get stuff off of it again. All doors and an extra door (right front) are complete - interior is rough. Engine is there with intake and exhaust manifolds off of it and in my shop. This had the Buick Compound carb set up with split exhaust manifolds, and has the linkages to the carbs all the way to the pedal. Trans and rear are in it. Dash is rusty on both corners from the windshield seal leaking all those years. Further, the rockers/floors are gone. I have the sarcophugus for the grill and the passenger side grill, as well as a driver's side fender off the car. It has the fender spear on it, though it is rough. Passenger fender is dented on the fender spear. I really need to get the elephant ears off the back of this thing for Den41 (I think). Poor guy has been waiting darn near forever!
  2. My jack works... I'm amazed at the differences. The sedanette was a 76S, and the decal says 1949. Odd.
  3. It is warm out today and I believe I have a jack for you. Came out of the 1949 Sedanette. Still has the remains of the instruction sticker on the foot. Needs restored. Value?
  4. Unfortunately, we have cars that are not often restored when compared to the Chevrolet's of the 50's. There are GREAT uphostery shops out there that can recreate your intierior, you will just need to be patient. I was quoted $10,000+ for a scratch built inteior on the 47 Buick I purchased. I found a decent used interior for half that. Most kits I saw were close to 8k. Good luck.
  5. For many of you this will be easy and I will end up feeling dumb. Or, perhaps we can all feel stumped for a while. I was asked if I had the heater hose bracket for a 49 - which I do. They are all the same I think from '41 on up. Turned out I have one on a 48, and two 49's. HERE is where it gets my noggin going: On the '49 Riviera hardtop, the bracket is identical to the other two EXCEPT there is an added bracket for a third hose. Every car I look at has two hoses. What is the third hose for?!?! The picture shows three brackets. The top one is from the 49 Riviera Hardtop and has the extra bracket which connects under the tab before it latches into the fender and hangs below the bracket.
  6. I have these two. I think I may have another still in the back of one of the cars. Will search tomorrow.
  7. To everyone who followed this thread...I now have a 48 Roadmaster convertible for parts. I honestly do not think this thing is economically feasible for ANYONE to attempt a restoration on. Are we all in agreement?
  8. I believe I have one. Do you have a photo of one to compare to mine?
  9. Good morning everyone. In my 41 Special parts car, I found the jack and what I believe to be a tire stop(?) (Top item in Granpa's pic where they are painted green - what is it called) What are the correct colors for these items? I would like to restore them before offering them for sale. Everything is free and moving. Thanking you all in advance.
  10. Den: Sorry, I've been traveling for work. Cars had to be moved to a secure location to keep things from disappearing. I'm back from all of the travels finally and digging out from all of my back logs. I'm hoping the final cuts to the bumper ends to send you everything completely together. No charge beyond you sending me photos of the end product for your having to wait. Sorry!
  11. For the next person who has no idea how to do this: take the bulb out and pull, comes right off.
  12. I'll check my parts cars. What engine size may be our best shot?
