  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. For the next person who has no idea how to do this: take the bulb out and pull, comes right off.
  4. I'll check my parts cars. What engine size may be our best shot?
  5. As many of you know, I am parting out 8 41-49 Buicks and I am working on saving some dash parts for one of our members - he needs the Map Light assembly and the Blower Motor switch out of the dash, along with many brackets behind them. Now, for the life of me, I cannot get the map light switch separated from the chrome pull on the outside of the dash. I don't want to break anything - can anyone steer me in the right direction with these two items?
  6. Dashboard. The pull out switch. I am going to err on the cautious side and make a new post over in the post war subforum...don't want Mr. Earl to still be on the wrong side of me when he sees this post again. 🙂
  7. I'm trying to remove the map light switch from a 49 and cannot for the life of me figure it out. Not wanting to break the bakelite ... anyone with any tips?
  8. This car is complete and would be a great parts car or restored.
  9. I'll only sell you the top one as it is for the Riviera. Just Kidding! I would like $50 for the panel just for my time. That will include the bracket if it exists. This literally bolts to the bottom of the dash all the way to the left. Interestingly, the Riviera fuse block was mounted above the ashtray in the center of the car. The panels are identical and the terminal markings are near perfect on the one I'm sending you.
  10. The top unit is from the Riviera. The bottom one is from the Sedanette.
  11. I have yet to find a bracket beyond the one on the board itself.
  12. Pulling tonight. Been getting slammed here. I will have photos of the parts for you tomorrow.
  13. Pete: They are removed from the car and I need to pack them up. One of the quarter pieces was cracked at the screw. I have all the studs that were loose as well. Scott
  14. Oddly enough, the woman selling the car has made the statement that 'it is not worth much' to the friend she showed it to. She has also remarked several times that her kids feel it is worth a mint. According to the person introducing us, she disregards their notions. The kids are the thorns in my side when it comes to the bonded title I must secure. I don't want to buy the car only to end up with a dispute down the road. I will get more photos and see what we can find out about the car, the condition of the floors, engine, and all of the other aspects of the car. Rumor has it that it lived in California until '72 and was not driven here in the winter for certain. Thanks to all who have chimed in, I appreciate it.
  15. I had a client in town last night. I am going to pull these after work today. I will find the bracket - both of my other 49's are complete and as they were parked 40 years ago. They both have glass in them. Scott
