  1. The case of the missing serial plate on my 1955 Buick Super is solved. I was looking at the wrong location on the drivers door frame. The VIN plate , although painted over, is exactly where it should be. In spite of 60 plus years of involvement with antique motor vehicles, at 86 years of age I seem to know less and less.
  2. The serial number plate on my 1955 Buick Super is missing. It was removed for painting and was misplaced by the paint shop. Does anyone know where I can acquire a blank reproduction plate? Thank You 55Bfred1752
  3. Your reply relative to the location of the oil fillers on the early and later 1955 engines answers my question. Many Thanks.
  4. 😂Having recently purchased a 1955 Buick Model 52 Super, I am confused by the location of the engine oil filter caps. I have seen 322 ci engines with the oil filler caps on top of each side valve cover, and other 322 ci engines with a single oil filler cap on the passenger side of the valve gallery cover. It appears the valve covers and the valve gallery covers are inter changeable. Thank you in advance for your response to my post.

  6. I have a NOS heater valve for my 1955 Buick Super. Any pointers I can get for removing the old valve and installing the new valve will be appreciated. I could not find any instructions in the shop manual for this job. It doesn't appear to be a difficult removal and installation but it is always helpful to get some first hand experience. 55Bfred1752
  7. I recently joined the BCA and am not familiar with the workings of the forum. How do I go about searching "ranco valve" ? 55Bfred1752
  8. The heater control valve on my 1955 buick Super is inoperative and needs to be replaced. If any BCA member has replaced this valve and can give me any pointers before I attempt the replacement, it will be most appreciated. 55Bfred1752
  9. All the responses I received regarding the use of premium fuel in my 1955 Buick Super are appreciated. The consensus supports the use of ethanol free fuel for the older cars. If it is available with an octane rating of 90 that may also be sufficient to answer the use of the premium fuel question. Many Thanks. !!! 55Bfred1752
  10. The owners manual for my recently acquired 1955 Buick with the 322 cu. in. engine recommends the use of premium fuel. How do the octane ratings of fuel sold today compare to the octane ratings in 1955? What octane fuel should I use in my Buick?
  11. My 1955 Buick Super 4-Door Sedan has the black horn button. 55Bfred1752
  12. Many thanks for the response to my L78-15 tire pressure post. Apparently 32 psi is the recommended tire pressure for L78-15 tires. however, I plan to experiment with 30 psi, and perhaps 28 psi to see if the ride and handling is any better. 55Bfred1752
  13. ?Can anyone tell me if the front hand brake lever cable on the 1954-55 Olds 98 is the same as that installed on the 1954-55 Buick Super & Roadmaster ? Thank You !!!
  14. my recently purchased 1955 Buick Super Model 52 is equipped with L78-15 tires. What is the recommended tire pressure for these tires?
