  1. Yea, I was thinking it was a damn good thing I wasn’t able to get it in gear as I wouldn’t have been able to get it out of gear before crashing into my garage wall! I’ll give myself plenty of room should I suddenly take off. And chocking the wheels is a good idea, thanks MT. 

  2. After sitting for a few weeks I now find I can’t get her in gear, as if the clutch is non-existent. Pumped the clutch pedal several times and nothing but severe grinding when I try to engage. Tried starting it with it in gear and pedal depressed, but it just lurches forward as if there is no clutch. Any ideas? Thanks boys.

  3. Grant, how are you going about getting the engine-turned dash panels? I recently got burned buying what were advertised as Doug Seybold panels but they were pretty bad. Had dents and the panels were chromed which is wrong. So I’m keeping my pretty good old ones starting over…won’t make that mistake again.

    Not many cars are better looking to me, than '41 Buicks, and especially the coupes just have such a nice shape to them, and the first 3 posts are all beauties!

    Im not always the biggest fan of visors, but i have to say it actually looks pretty good on there, but more importantly, doesnt look goofy and out of place, and i think compliments the shape of the car. Great color too!

    How about stars on the doors instead? I tell everyone it's Chester Nimitz's staff car before he transferred to Pearl. Nice that the "elephant ears" have built-in flag holders.

    Touché! Great minds think alike…

  6. I’m a little confused in that my research indicates folks are asking a lot more than this for these cars, remains to be seen if they get what they are asking. This is a friend so I want him to get a decent price for it, particularly given what’s gone into this car. On the other hand, if this is the way it is, I’d buy it and be incredibly happy. Thanks again

  7. After some research, surprisingly and sadly, it seems the very best restored cars only fetch $50K, if that. Many good driver quality cars, barely half that. These are relative steals in my opinion as they are cool, spacious, elegant, powerful cars.
