  1. This is a carburetor off a 1951 263 straight 8. I believe it is a Carter 632 Everything moves freely but it is not in great shape and is probably best for parts, but maybe could be rebuilt. 25$ I'm in Sioux Center Iowa, but I'm going to be in McPherson Kansas on the 22nd and 23rd, and I plan to be going to collage there next year if this hasn't sold by then. Otherwise I can figure out how to ship it. I will be putting this on ebay in a week if nobody on the forum wants it.
  2. I will be in McPherson Kansas on the 22nd and 23rd of January if anyone in that area wants these parts i can bring some of them down.
  3. I got a steering u joint out of a 90's dodge dakota and welded it to the steering box mounting piece.
  4. Here's some of the other stuff I've been up to. I built a giant scooter out of some tube, rebar, a skateboard, and a bike. Racing lawnmower project And my truck has needed some work
  5. I've been busy working on some other projects, but finally stopped staring at my steering box and started working on it. I cut down the original column and put the end of a 67-72 chevy truck column on the end. I need to make a bracket or two for it yet but it's working pretty good. Just need to figure out what crazy u-joint setup i'll need to make it work with the box.
  6. I am looking for a driver's side front door, passenger front fender, and a grille/bumper. I would also potentially be interested in both passenger doors. It can be off of a Super or Roadmaster from 1950-1952, I'm not particular about this car matching. Only condition requirement is that it be better than what I have now, take a look at the attached pictures. If possible I would like to trade all of my engine parts for these body panels. I have an entire 263 I8 from a 51 super, fully disassembled, and a dynaflow transmission. It's not in great condition but there are definitely some usable part
  7. Would this fit a 1951 Super? Where is it located? I may be interested
  8. Finally got around to borrowing a friend's engine hoist and got the engine installed, and fired it up a few times once it was in. Went fairly smoothly, but it sticks pretty high up out of the engine bay, so I'm not sure if the hood will fit. Might need a scoop! Fortunately the shifter works out real nice on the interior, just needs to get bent a little to clear the dash. Next steps will be working out steering and pedals, and engineering my rear radiator plans. I got exposed to Covid at school this week, so without all the in person stuff I'll probably have pl
  9. It's been a while but I've made some progress... I pulled out the 304 that came with the chassis and pulled the pan to find a lot of water and sludge. The bearings were also pretty bad. So I scoured the online classifieds and found a supposedly running 304 within an hours drive. So I fired up my truck and went and bought it. This week I got it running! School has started up again so progress will be even slower than it was before, but I hope to have the engine in the car in a few weeks, and then I can work out steering and pedals and cooling and all that fun stuff.
  10. Still got lots of parts I need to part ways with! I also have a steering column that I don't need, if I can get the steering wheel off, at least.
  11. The 67-72 Chevy truck forum has threads for "Craigslist Finds", and I think a similar thread could potentially clear up the buy/sell page.
  12. Progress on the Buick has been slow, work and my truck has been higher on the list lately. However, soon I will need to be able to easily move the Buick around, and I need to figure out my steering. I'm heading up to a upullit soon and I'm planning to get a steering column to adapt. I would like to keep the original steering wheel. How hard is it to adapt the original wheel to a newer column?
  13. Ok, so what I'm doing to my Buick is obviously already heretical and evil, right. Would it be taking it too far to put a '50 grille on a 51? Which would look better?
  14. Front support from a 51 Super that holds in the radiator and the horns, I don’t need it for my project. Its yours for like, 15$? I’m located near Sioux Center Iowa.
  15. Yup those are my Dad's projects, a 420 and a Model B that my grandpa bought new, and is in it's original condition. And here I am bringing in an International Harvester frame... under a green car!
