    Looking for a Repo Fuel tank for 1926 Buick

    We recently went through looking for a used tank for our ‘27 and decided building a new one was the way to go, test fit last night after installing filler neck, fuel gauge neck and pick up bung. Fit was perfect, now off to powder coat this week and then for added insurance I am going to line the tank as well..... good protecting inside and out! I am hoping the new tank outlives me and my kids!! good luck w the search for a good one....
  2. Wow that’s amazing, it is beautiful!!!
  3. Thanks Gary W! Did you replace them yourself or have someone do it? If you did them yourself, any tips?
  4. So all the rubber window molding is cracked up and I mean Windshield, Quarter Glass, and Rear Window...... all of it! Anyone know the availability and/ or have a link or info on it? Any tips on replacing it? I have a friend that owns a glass company but highly doubt they’ve ever worked on anything quite this vintage! Any help is as always greatly appreciated!! Most importantly, I hope everyone has a safe and prosperous New Year! William- Crazyfamily

    Locking door handle

    Good luck w the lock/key! Not meaning to high jack your post but just curious on these Briggs Stratton Cylinders!! i have a locksmith friend who has been trying to assist me w my transmission lock, we found out it’s not a Yale lock cylinder but also a Briggs and Stratton Co cylinder (BASCO) as well! He cut a Yale key before determining its a BASCO cylinder, I guess BASCO cylinders take diff key blanks than Yale correct? Hugh has be. An enormous help on this with me..... THANKS HUGH!!!!
  6. All great info and exactly what I was looking for!!! Very interesting!

    Vacuum Pump Fuel Shutoff

    THanks Brian, I took a look at their catalog and don’t see one like this one but I’ll give them a call tomorrow and see what I can find out. i greatly appreciate you and everyone else who are helping me not only understand these cars but also field my repeated berage of question after question and assisting me in locating the parts I am in need of! i really really appreciate it, and as I said from my first introduction “I hope to one day give more confrontations than I take from the group!”

    Vacuum Pump Fuel Shutoff

    Ok so now I see why people say “old cars fight you along the way” so im restoring the original SW Vacuum Fuel Pump and this fuel valve broke right off. Does anyone have one available or know where I can purchase it from?

    Interior kits?

    Ok I know and love the saying “It’s only original once!” However as much as I do like the fact that our ‘27 Buick Standard has its original interior, I am thinking I’d like to be prepared and go ahead and purchase a new interior! Does anyone make a ready made replacement interior kit for these cars? I am am not sure what the interior color was called for our car but it’s a dark blue color mohair I’m told? If anyone knows of a kit for the interior and can point me in the right direction I’d be most appreciative! thanks so much....and Happy Holidays! William Crazyfamily
  11. Just curious if there is a list someone has composed of the differences Or changes made from each model year to the next for Buick’s? Would be nice to know what the major differences were for each model year vs the previous! Would certainly be an interesting read for someone new to these cars.... like me!

    Pines Manufacturing Company “The Winterfront”

    I think this 91+ year old “technology “ is pretty darn cool myself! ^Not that I’ll ever actually install it on our car! However I wouldn’t part w it as you never know lol!! Where we live we wouldn’t worry about driving it when it’s that cold out!
  13. As some of your know I posted some pictures of my Winterfront that was given to me, along with a bunch of spares, for our 1927 Buick Model 27 “Standard” a few months ago by the previous owner of the car. Well tonight I decided to get it out again, wipe it off real quick and ask the Mrs if I could borrow her hairdryer! Well, the Mrs said yes and the “Winterfront” with it’s 90 plus year old technology still works just fine! It didn’t take long at all with the hairdryer on low to start opening the louviers of The Winterfront! I just wanted to share my excitement with my fellow car fanatics!

    I can replace the rubbers, mine are pretty hard but then again I don’t know how much “squish” they should have?
