  1. Ran across this craigslist post, passing it on to anyone who is interested so it doesn't getting rodded; (However, if anyone has any 1924 Master Six parts please look at my previous post and list of parts needed) https://scranton.craigslist.org/ctd/d/gouldsboro-1923-buick-opera-coupe-model/7024231464.html
  2. Wow. All that Nickeling looks great. And a great price.
  3. I had one of the door latches/lever on the window seal of my '24 Master Six broken and bought another but it turned out to be slightly different from the originals. It basically had one hump and mine have two (See pic to understand) Does anyone have an extra 2 hump style? Also below is a list of parts I'm in need of, if you have anything laying around, or double check on that parts car out back, or extra you'll probably never use, can you pass it on my way? I can provide you with pics if you drop me a PM. I'm not looking to restore the car, just keep it with it's original unrestored condition but over the years some parts were removed by past owners and I'm trying to get it back 100% complete, so fair to good condition would be nice, or you had something and then found it in better condition and now have that other one laying around now not being used. 1. Exhaust by pass valve 2. Exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold to the muffler. 3. Original Muffler and tail pipe 4. Clevis pin that goes in the fork of the accelerator bracket which is mounted on the firewall. (Sure, I could buy a new one at the hardware store, but I want an orignal one) 5. Radiator to head water tube. 6. Water pump to starter generator coupling assembly. 7. Two hood hold down latch catches that are attached to the hood, has 3 rivets. (Nickel) 8. The cap that sits on top of the oil breather tube near the rear of the motor towards the firewall. 9. The Outside windshield visor or at least the brackets for the visor. 10. Stirrup (round) door handles. 11. Inside door latch / lever that is on the door window seal. 12. Valve cover wing nuts. 13. Hood rod support brackets that hold the center of the hood rod into the firewall at one end and into the radiator shell at the other end. 14. Splash Aprons for a 128" Master sedan, not sure length measurement of splash aprons. 15. Cover plate that goes on transmission house right where starter generator connects. 16. Springs, Nuts, Bolts etc. or anything connected to assembly of clutch and brake pedal to transmission. Someone disassembled those parts and they got lost over time by last owner. I've since obtained the Clutch and Brake peddle/arms but I need any hardware that is needed to put everything back the way it was. 17. Nickel plated headlight drums. (I have correct year headlights but they are not the Original Nickel) 18. Nickel plated cowl lights or just bezels. I can provide pictures of what these items look like if any of my item descriptions don't make sense. Thank you, Shawn
  4. I have a 1924 Master Six and I'm looking for the same hood latch catches. I've located 2 but still short another 2, and I believe these are riveted onto the hood. Here is a pic of what they look like.
  5. Hugh, Since it's just a one time thing in the evening and not a permanent installation of lights. Just use the regular 12v lights, LED is a good idea since they use less energy and just rig up a full charged 12v battery in a wood case you can sit on the floor board or in the trunk, and run the lights to that battery and just run them off of it, independent of your car's 6volt system. Place an on/off switch on the box, and a regular outlet on the box that runs to the battery. Something like that?
  6. I recently ran across this square Buick logo in a round emblem. Looks to be either for a Radiator or Taillight, probably dumb for me asking but I'm curious what year Buick it is from. If someone can enlighten me, I'll be all the wiser in the future ...lol
  7. Understandable. In the original photo showing the hood up, where it is clearly noticeable the difference in the colors between the black of the radiator hose and the metal of the water tube, It's obvious it wasn't also painted black, and since there is a scarcity of any original water tubes that anyone has that do have any evidence of original nickel plating, I wonder if the factory just left the water tube plain bare metal or even just buffed it out for appearance? That's the only logical guess I can come up with as to why in the picture the water tube has a noticeably shiny metal look to it vs what you'd see if it was painted black?
  8. For Comparison sake, here are close up pictures of the legs on the water tube on my '24 Master Series 51a. The motor has never been touched and the miles are original. I could be wrong, but I do not think they originally had a squared off end to the tube.
  9. Is Roger going to make these tubes out of stainless steele? I know it would be more expensive, however you would never have to worry about water damage to the tube again, not would it need to be plated.
  10. I was reading this entire thread regarding what the color may or may not have been on the water tube. I ran across this original photo of a 1924 Buick Sedan that had been in a wreck. The hood is open and the water tube is clearly visible, it does not look like it is a dark color vs the other colors in the photo. (Like the radiator hose) I'll let everyone draw their own conclusions.
  11. Wait folks, stop the presses. I know what the rear light looks like, I have one on my 1924, the reason I put the Square next to this plate is because of the size of it, and to show how big it is, there is NO way this was used on a car for taillights ...lol. it's almost 9" tall and 6" wide. Because it is so oversized, I dont know what it could have been used for unless maybe an oversize store display for a taillight or something else? This is why I said I am stumped as to what is could be, this thing I's 5 times the size of a taillight plate.
  12. I recently ran across this heavy metal/porcelain plate which appears to be crudely made (meaning the lines are not crisp and well defined) with a porcelain surface on both sides. It's a charcoal grey with blue and white emblem colors. What is it? Any clues? I'm stumped as to what the purpose was? Any thought or ideas. There were two and I picked up this ones for no real good reason ...lol.
  13. Did anyone get you the help you needed yet?
  14. Can't find the website Everett Potter has googling his name, can you post a link?
