  1. OK, if you're looking for a response, here's one from someone that's been down the same road as you. There is no market for used flat glass, it will be impossible to sell and it's not worth storing. And if none of it is identified. that's even worse. I would throw it away and not lose any sleep over it. Whatever you decide to do with it, I wish you all the best, just one man's opinion.
  2. Center pillar moulding.....goes on the side of the car between the front & rear doors about halfway up, 1950 Buick is a guess.
  3. The whole big round assembly is called a Headlamp Shell with Seat. The part number is 1626512. They're the same on all 1955 Chryslers, Dodges and Desotos & 1955 and 1956 Plymouths according to the parts books. Any old salvage yards or U-Pull-Its in your neck of the woods?
  4. More like driver quality than investment quality. An investment quality vehicle shouldn't require wheel chocks, display visible rust bubbles, have cracked weather stripping, and leave drops of water on the console after a wash job.
  5. Judging by the pictures, if those moldings are 12 1/2" long, they appear to be very skinny like maybe only about 3/8"-1/2" wide anyway so my guess is way off.
  6. Yes, something like that.
  7. Reminds me of the trim used on the lower part of the interior door garnish mouldings that fit around the windows of the 1946-1948 Chryslers........if it's only 12 1/2" long though it might go under the rearward quarter windows of a 4-door sedan. Just a guess, how wide is it?
  8. A base model 88 four door sedan with 157,000 miles on it that has no power options and needing considerable interior work will be a tough sell at that asking price. IMO a late 50s Olds with a stick is certainly unusual but not unheard of. There should be a number of J-2 equipped standard shift 1957 Oldsmobiles still in existence that either came from the factory that way or were converted by gearhead restorers over the years. I think this particular car will only appeal to a more mature audience and those folks will prefer a car with an automatic and more options that's easier to drive and enjoy.
  9. Anyone interested seeing more of this very same automobile can watch a YouTube video entitled "MWK #1278, 1941 Studebaker Commander, Gateway Classic Cars of Milwaukee". So maybe this current Facebook ad is a scam attempt by someone that doesn't know one make of antique car from another?
  10. Someone's got their wires crossed there......Or maybe it's a Studebaker Ambassador.
  11. I really wasn't 100% sure what it was. Whenever a part that looks like it belongs to a sealed beam conversion kit shows up the first thing I think of is a 1939 Plymouth.
  12. Maybe a bezel for some kind of a 1939 Plymouth sealed beam conversion judging by the shape.
  13. The aftermarket mirror you have pictured is called a Yankee Tri Bar mirror according to some current Ebay listings.
  14. The mirror that was in your trunk is an aftermarket accessory mirror. TerryB's sales brochure picture shows the correct 1955 Dodge mirror. I believe all Chrysler products used the same outside mirror in 1955.
