  1. Hello all. I am looking to find a good 3.23 limited slip third member for my 1965 Riviera. Does anyone out there in the community have a line on one of these? I am located in Santa Rosa, CA. Thanks, Ryan
  2. Wow! Those are some fabulous parts, quite the find.
  3. This is great! Thank you. This will help my search for sure.
  4. Thanks for the enthusiasm & encouragement everyone. The engines will be a sizable project on their own, but I feel confident. Luckily for me, I am the machine shop & engine builder. The place I work does all sorts of oddball engine, machine, & fabrication jobs for various rare & obscure old cars, so I will have excellent resources on hand. I have considered starting a thread for my project, but was worried about it going stale by not updating regularly enough. Certainly all the photos & data collected will be compiled & available to anyone who is interested however. @kings32 Where was your engine rebuilt? Were the cylinder head decks on the block cut during rebuild? @58L-Y8Thanks for sharing your Oakland experiences. I too remember the first one I encountered. Been hooked ever since. My extra time at home this year has allowed me to take that existing interest & try to do something with it. I'll call that a success already. @lumpI am taking lots of pictures along the way (including the crankshaft) & would be happy to share them. Good idea about the HAMB. I placed an ad there months ago, but had forgotten about it. So time to revive that I'd say.
  5. @58L-Y8 I picked them up in early October. A Conversation with M-mman allowed me to make contact with the man running the yard where they were located in Kansas. I live in California, so it was a bit of a trek, but we rolled it into a road trip we were taking to try to get the hell out of the house for a while. My goal is to find a 1930 or 1931 Oakland coupe to acquire. This has proven difficult so far, even with making contact with the various clubs and members. I have been interested in these engines for many years now, so this seemed like a cheap way to get some exposure. The plan is to disassemble them both to see what I've got, and hopefully build up one viable engine. I have the more complete one fully disassembled at this point and am about to start on the second one. So far, I am pretty pleased with how things are looking all things considered.
  6. Thanks to @m-mmanfor helping me make the connection.
  7. I have messaged you several times about Oakland cars & parts with no reply. You must not want to move this stuff that bad...
  8. Hello, I am interested in finding a 1930 or 1931 Oakland Coupe to acquire. Any assistance the community can provide would be greatly appreciated. I have checked with the various Pontiac/Oakland clubs and many other resources I could come up with, without much luck so far. My contact Information can be provided to anyone who thinks they might be able to help. I am located in Santa Rosa, California. Thanks, Ryan
  9. Still interested in finding one of these cars to acquire. I have checked all leads that have been suggested & have made many connections on my own. Any further resources or contacts anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Ryan
  10. Charles, I have reached out to the club. Thanks for the suggestion!
  11. Hi Andy, My preference would be a driver. Ideally, I would like to find a standard coupe with trunk rather than a rumble seat coupe. I am quite capable of most any mechanical repair, much less so with body related issues. I definitely am not looking for a show car. Ryan
