    1970 Buick Electra 225 Convertible

    Update: I did speak to one of the guys who were there when the car was unloaded off the flatbed after purchase. He indicated that the floor and frame looked solid, especially given the age. I can try and confirm that if someone expresses interest in the car. It is not mine so I would have to go over to where it is and try and look around under it.
  2. Really complete 1970 Buick Electra 225 convertible for sale. The car is not mine, operating condition unknown. I do not know much about the car itself pretty much other than what the pictures show. Per the owner.... it is a 455 car complete with engine and transmission. He got the car but did not try and start it as far as I know. He got it out of an estate when someone passed away and it was inside a garage where it had sat and needed to be removed. It has been sitting outside since he picked it up (about 2 months) and the top leaked soaking the rug so it got wet inside with the wet weather we got here in PA but he indicated it was dry when he got it. I did not open the hood (has lip edge rust) as the car was in a private driveway and I did not need issues! It has a clean title and can be transferred per the owner. I noticed the last inspection was NY 2007. Car has a dark brown leather interior, front seat needs work, needs a rug and a new canvass top. Car has power windows and the door switches are in place and look intact. Odometer shows 64,361 but I do not know if it is correct or rolled over. I could not open the trunk so I have no idea about it's condition. There is a car cover stuffed inside currently on the front seat and the owners manual is in the car. Car has complete convertible top assembly, nice dash and pad, road wheels with 3 centers (need polished out) and has it's skirts. Rear quarters are really not bad neither are the skirts. Car needs left front fender for sure, right front needs work at bottom and the lower doors need some work. I could not look at the floors and frame where it sat. I am a Buick guy and frequent this site so he asked me to put it up here for him because of the audience. In drive train and parts alone it is desirable. I in no way guarantee anything and am doing the best I can to describe it. This car is not turn key, has rust and would need to be flatbed or towed. The seller owns a tow and recovery company and he will work with a buyer on transport but that would be up to the buyer to work out with him. I have more pictures and can send them if you contact me and give me an email address to shoot them to. If you are serious about the car, contact me and I will then send the owners personal contact information. He is busy with his business so he asked me to put it out here. He is asking $2500 obo.

    Packard Engine 320?

    Packard engine I found in an old yard. When I looked under the hood of the Hudson it was in I was shocked at how complete the thing was. I am thinking it is a 320? The transmission is there too. It is in a Hudson body probably a 56. I know this was a transition time within the Hudson/Packard . I have no price listed because I have to determine when and if I am going to pull the drivetrain or yank out the whole car. This time of the year up here is difficult with weather. I have to gauge the interest before I move forward and the Packard part of this site does not split for sale/general etc like my Buick guys do.
  4. These centers were black but the paint is all but gone. I have 3 of these caps, 2 pretty nice ones and 1 with more imperfections but still usable.
  5. Was it Poly 318 in 56? I see Poly 318 engines in Mopars up to about 66 or so it seems.
  6. Found this grill stainless in an old yard I frequent. It was laying in the picker bushes for probably 50 years. Car is long crushed. Obviously it has some flaws in the stainless but jeez where you gonna find this? Asking $150. Will ship if I have to at buyers expense or can meet someone if near enough to me in NEPA.
  7. I found what I believe is a 1956 Windsor 4 door in an old junkyard. I wanted to check for an engine but the hood was frozen down tight so I squirted WD to let it sit and maybe free up the release. What were the engine choices for the Windsor? I am a GM guy so I am not so up on those cars. I know Mopar had a hemi V8 at that time and my dad couldn't remember what engine was in his 56 Desoto. My dad had a 56 DeSoto Firedome same vintage that had the fins and the 3 vertical lights in the fins, it light up like a Christmas tree when he stepped on the brake. The Windsor had one big lense in the fin on both sides but the lenses are gone. It has a push button trunk release and the Windsor script is in gold. I took pictures with my phone transferred the zip file to my pictures on my computer it would not attach here. This is a single picture that I uploaded first that I attached. I will pull parts, price and list on this site if there is an interest.
  8. Found an old yard in the woods not far from my home. I pulled some parts of a few cars and found vintage Chrysler and Plymouth caps in a trunk. What vintage are they? I am thinking early 50's for the Plymouth cap with the ship on it. No idea on the Chrysler caps. Found 3 of the Chrysler caps and one Plymouth.

    Found this nice Chrysler Grill

    Thanks, I kind of thought New Yorker. Any idea of value? The lenses are no good but the stainless is really nice for the age.

    Found this nice Chrysler Grill

    Certainly not perfect, some dings but where do you find stuff like this any more? It was just lying on the ground like that. I wish they made stainless trim like that now, lasts forever!
  11. Need help identifying what I believe is an early to mid 50's Chrysler New Yorker or Windsor grill found pretty much intact. Stainless is in nice shape especially given the age. Found it at my honey hole yard last week in a barn. Would like to flip it but need positive identification first. I wish I could find grills this nice for my cars! Mike
  12. What would the CID of the engine be? What would the engine be common in? I gotta think that the engine is not too common any more. Someone might need something?
  13. Yeah, the car is for sure a 1956 and it looks like the 1957 is pretty similar. The engine is pictured, CID were they? The carb is there and the plug wires on it are yellowish see through, you can see the inner wire inside. The car is older than what I collect so it is out of my wheelhouse. The owner of the land is a really nice old guy. I enjoyed talking to him. He has a lot of old trucks out there too, quite a few International pickups, Scouts and Travelall's.
  14. I found this gem in a field. There also are some other Newport/Windsor cars there too. Let me know what you may need, I can look. The owner of the property lets me pull parts and is really a great guy to deal with.
  15. Thanks, I knew it was off an off the wall car. I think the engine is a Rambler piece. While it is not the prettiest design it is pretty complete. Someone looking for parts would benefit I am sure.
