  1. Sorry for the delay getting back. I tried to send a few messages individually just to find out there is a limit. For those that wanted to see the back. See pic. There is no bed in it at this time. Trying to decide if I should build it to tow truck use standards or just for show or just put a wood floor in the bed.
  2. Yes sorry I did not get back to you earier.
  3. Ok, I think I get the picture. When we started this I knew our car will never be worth restoring because it was too far gone. So I figured parts that can help someone else to complete a true restoration would be offered up and maybe their part if in worse shape we would use on ours. But it seems the bumper cores do not have any major value so the plating is the value. I think I'll just fill it and paint it since our car will never be original. After all we are just trying to preserve what we have and not looking for trophies. Thanks for the input.
  4. The bumper on our project looks to be original and surprisingly straight. It is however pitted but not rotted. If the bumpers value is high after chroming and it adds extra value to the project I will make the investment. If not I will fill the pitting and paint to match. So I guess I need to know the value of this bumper chromed properly. Any ideas? Tony
  5. Hello once again. Sorry to say but I think it is time. If any Prewar Buick folks are interested in this project Buick let me know. I cannot give a price at this time because I have not figured what I have invested. I figure any serious buyer would want to come see it first anyway, which would require an appointment. Thanks Tony
  6. Here is mine. Do they usually Crack in the same spots? If so where are the weak spots? I found no cracks but this engine had two bent pushrods in number one. I figured head gasket and hydrolock held the valves so the rods bent.
  7. Thanks Steve. I have enough parts to determine measurementso so I guess I was just looking for an easy way out by buying reproductions in place of making them. Thanks anyway But if you get a chance to post a picture I think it could help. Tony
  8. Our car was a 1932 97 model. Those that had it before us cut out the back doors as some of you may already know. We need to make doors but the issue is the door hinges. The original slots and holes are there but I have no original hinge info or specs. Are there any repro hinges that fit? I see ford stuff. Just not sure what can work. Tony
  9. Sorry goofed up. Thats the car on the rotisserie. Here is the car now. I had it listed here before for I believe 9500.00 changed my mind on that. Dug out my old receipts , it's gonna take 12K . Engine and transmission professionally rebuild.
  10. The car is complete with some minor unfinished tasks. For example the rear bumper probably should have been rechromed when the front was done. The windshield washer pump needs replacing. The new trunk upholstery kit was junk I've seen better. Small stuff like that and not many more. Here are some pictures.
  11. Chas ,I'm new to old Buicks. What typically goes on at this tour event?
  12. I was concerned about the manifold washers but never knew what went there.
  13. Str8 8 Dave I pulled the filter today. Primed the carb. Fired up and ran til I shut it off. The filter seemed clear enough for a newer pump but may just be to much restriction for the old pumps. Unfortunately I did not work with a control and did loosen the top of the carb and tapped it to see if the float was stuck. Tomorrow the filter will go back in and I'll see if the problem returns. If so I will install a larger in line filter back at the tank outlet and eliminate the carb filter. Nice call. Tony
  14. The intake is flipped and I designed an adapter in AutoCAD that was made on a 3D printer. It will allow most 2 barrel Rochesters to fit. I never had enough original components to go all original. Tony
