  2. Today I logged on and fonts for posts are in italics. Is this a forum thing or is this something I need to address in my own settings (Chrome) Thanks, Ted
  3. I'll be at the Buick Bash at Quaker this year, same time as OKC.
  4. I have several 65 cores in Cincinnati if you have any way of picking up. $150 each. 65 Super Turbine 400 with converter.
  5. I am looking for 65 Wildcat Bucket Seat tracks- driver side. Long shot- power seat track part that bolts to floor @ inside - I have a nice power seat assembly missing this track. Thank you!
  6. I’ve got some 😎 i will attempt to get pictures and post.
  7. I know this image is around the interwebs, but this one was from the Spalding (maternal grandfather) archives. From Hock's Buick in Cincinnati. My grandfather had several Buicks- a 62 LeSabre and a 68 LeSabre were the ones I remember. He also had the greatest nickname i@ MIT - Dymo (short for Dynamo :)) He was also known as Skip... I do not think anybody called him by his given name Francis Wheeler Spalding. He would always draw locomotives for me when we came for Christmas. I got married too late to have kids, but I though "Rusty Wheeler Nagel" would be hilarious ... Nagel is German for nail Merry Christmas Buick People!
  8. OK, 1966 Wildcat Convertibles break down. From Daily Car Report! 46467 2690 built. Wildcat Convertible A 7 425 cid Q-Jet 62 built A 8 425 cid dual quad -1 built (GS option) A 9 425 cid Q-Jet 40 built (GS option) 46667 2790 built. Wildcat Custom Convertible A 7 425 cid Q-Jet 114 built A 8 425 cid dual quad -3 built (GS option) A 9 425 cid Q-Jet 195 built (GS option) So there are 425 cid Wildcats that were not Wildcat GS. But unlike prior years, they were equipped with the Q-Jet carb.
  9. Good year for business but not so great for miles on Buicks! 2019/2019 challenge... how about 2019 miles in various Buicks in 2019? I've written down the mileage in most of them, and it surprises me that some have mileage so close. 63000 +/- 500
  10. We watch Perry Mason on MeTV, the local oldies station. One episode I swear I saw a 65 Wildcat for a flash. Cathi was not as amused as I was since the show starts at 11 pm and she was half asleep when I saw it
  11. I have the short side behind front wheel. I've parted out 10 65's and the passenger rear molding is the one that is banged up the most for some reason. Ted
  12. I was trying to see if there was a tire pressure decal somewhere. I found one for 1954 that recommended 24 cold and 27 hot. IMHO bias ply paradigm is lower pressure and will give better ride at recommended pressures. Corvair tire pressure for front was 15 psi. Many handling problems with the corvair were from front tire pressure being too high. I do like to increase pressure if in storage - my attempt at lowering chance of flat spots.
  13. If I were restamping you know they would be in a straight line and neat as I could get it. I say its legit
  14. Please let us know where you are. Maybe somebody local can help, or if shipping is needed how much that might be. Ted
