    1941 Buick with 1500 original miles

    Further to the above points: In the four years of war production, cars were worn to their bones and driven to fairly early graves due to the inavailability of new cars and parts. I doubt very highly that this car would have survived this type of duty/service during the war as it is not a rare or expensive model. This is a Special sedan, not a Roadmaster convertible. I doubt the survivability of such a car. And that radiator tag is NEW. Paper does not maintain that crispness after almost 80 years!! With all of that said, pretty car.

    1948 Buick Roadmaster convertible for sale

    Well crud...if a restored ROADMASTER convertible only brought $21k, I am seriously screwed on my 47 Super!! I still have minor stuff like Interior (every stitch), chrome (all), top (including repainting bows/header), and paint everywhere to get completed! This is after I get the car moving under its own power and servicing the complete hydraulic system for the top, doors, and seat! Ugh.

    1947 Buick 56-C Barn Find!!

    Well, life was in the way most of the weekend. Was SUPPOSED to pick up a 57 Special 2-door hard top parts car...had an accepted offer from the seller and was going to bring it home on Saturday - as I was backing up to my trailer I receive a text and the seller tells me that he has an offer for more money. So I politely told him thanks and no thanks! 😣 I decided to pull the heater parts and flush everything on the 1947 as I needed to replace all of the hoses feeding everything. So I cut the dry rotted hoses off of everything and started pulling stuff out from under the dash. God, the build quality on this car is just so good! I love the simplicity. I found the defroster motor assembly to be dirty and the wire is frayed going into the motor. Can I pop those rivets that hold the blower motor together and disassemble that motor to replace the wire? In fact, I found quite a few brittle wires under there that I will replace. All of that cleaned, I went under the car to pull the heater blower motor off of the frame rail and found the old mouse habitat from the barn. I should really get a picture of the crap that came out of the ducting under the car! It was packed!! Inside it all, and how they arrived there I have no idea...is a pair of pliers that have had to have been there for the better part of a decade! Poor guy who owned it before me went to his grave never knowing where he put those damned pliers!! So, the questions I have for everyone here are the aforementioned wire to the defroster motor and How do I remove the rear seatback?!? Thank you all in advance!
