  1. Looking for the divider garnish the rear view mirror attaches to for my 1947 Buick Super Convertible. Let me know, thank you.
  2. Yup, I just found that out... aftermarket. Thanks guys!
  3. Wow, ok, I appreciate the help. That explains it. I couldn’t find a part number anywhere!
  4. Hi everyone, I got this hood ornament for my 1947 Buick Super and then realized it’s not for my car. I want to sell it as it’s in great condition but I don’t want someone to get burned because I mislabeled it. Can anyone tell me what car this is from? it’s a bombsight like my Buick, but it’s a standalone bolt on, not part of a longer trim.... anyone know?

  6. That’s what I was afraid of. But good info, I’m not using hydraulic so I’ll look for earlier seats. Thanks man!
  7. Hi guys, my 1947 Buick 2 door was missing seats when I got the car. I don’t think just and bench with flippers will do as the original seats look to be thin and swoopy on the tops like this picture. The originals had room for the backseat peoples feet and were thinner to help with the room for the backseat passenger I suppose. I was at a swap a few months ago and a guy was selling 1947 Cadillac seats out of a four-door in the backseats seem to work out but the front seat is a hard bench, no flip. I thought about modifying this front seat and parts from a newer seat, but that seems like a terrible amount of work. but the base looks just like the base of the original Buick seats foot room and all. question is did any other GM vehicles have thin and swooping seat backs or is this going to be impossible to find now or an arm and a leg if I do find it? anyone have this problem before and found a way around it? Any suggestions? Thanks
  8. Dude! You got that for free??? Badass little convertible! Thank God you saved it, no reason for that thing to become 3 Honda’s
  9. Hi all, my 47 convertible super was in 2 halves when I got the car and now I am rebuilding the floor pan and the rocker panels, but as you know sheet metal for these cars are very limited., leaving me to fabricate lots of it. I have lots of it worked out already but I am unsure of a few angles and want to make sure I am building it right and the doors will shut and the door seams will look correct. is anyone willing to take some detailed pics of your rocker panels with the door open so I can get a visual of what I need to replicate? Specifically the area I am showing in this attached picture. any help is greatly appreciated.
  10. I’ll take one of those please! 👍🏽
  11. Hi, I just bought some parts from @Killshot169 and his brother Ed for my 1947 Buick Super. They were honest, very descriptive in how the parts looked, sent me detailed photos, were extremely fair with pricing and on top of all that are just great people to talk to and deal with. I’d like to help them with their sales for being so cool to me so I’m posting this. (Just don’t take the parts I still need… JK) 😂 I don’t post other peoples phone numbers so you’ll need to get a hold of Killshot169 to ask for parts, but you won’t be disappointed. Thank you AACA for allowing me a home to meet such great guys. Happy new year all. MG
  12. Hey I just saw this and texted that number even though I know it’s really late it’s 10:30 at night here in California. I just didn’t want to miss this. Thank you for this!
  13. I’d defer to the Buick studs on this forum but from what I understand the vent windows on all GM convertibles from 42 to 48 are the same.
  14. Hey, I just called Dougs number and he answered... it’s 7 PM in CA, this guy is still working in his shop in Ohio lol. He said he can help me! You guys rock, thank you! MCHinson, that car in your thumbnail is baddass man
  15. Thanks guys, I did get some info from a cool member who showed me years and models that fit, and when I talk to yards I start with “I’m looking for any 1942 to 1948 GM convertible right side vent window”. That same guy told me about Doug but I need the broken parts in hand. I have only the broken bottom, no other parts. Here’s a pic.
  16. Hi again, I’m grateful to have a group of professionals who’ve been at this antique car game for a long time and have run into my problems before. I am at my wits end on this damn ‘47 Buick Super passenger vent window frame. I have called yards from New York, to Oklahoma, Idaho, Tennessee, Montana, Philadelphia, etc. etc. since I got this car in July. I bought a 1950 vent window frame off eBay thinking I could message it in some how. (you all know how that turned out). I’m starting to come to the sinking feeling I’m not going to find an original. what do you concours guys do when you run into this problem??? And before you answer, I’m far from rich lol. What are my options here? Thank you for looking at this post.
  17. I bought this grill from a guy saying it was from a 1947 Buick super but this can’t be because when I got it the teeth are wider than my original grill teeth. My Buick Super is a 1947 convertible and the teeth are 1 inch wide. I want to post it and sell it but I want to make sure I am listing it as the correct thing. These are 1 1/4 inch wide. Can anyone tell me what Buick this grill is from and possibly what I should ask for pricing? Not sure if I over paid or not. Thank you
  18. I have a 47 Super convertible. That’s dope man, congrats!
  19. Hi, any chance I can get the passenger side vent window and frame?
  20. It is, the guy I bought the car from did that... I have to fix it. I wish he wouldn’t have.
