  1. Needing to do some repairs on the power windows on my 1955 Super Convertible. Require lower sash ( bottom channel which glass fits into ) and rollers. Any suggestions where I may source these parts. This is the type part https://www.ebay.com/itm/1955-1957-Pontiac-Safari-Window-Lower-Sash-Channel-Left-Hand-24-C4658474R/262841107133?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  2. O Heading off to the Australian Buick National Meet back in 2008 - Perth ( West Coast ) to Brisbane ( Queensland - East Coast ) back in 2008.
  3. I was impressed with his selection for The Greatest of Them All
  4. Not sure why the text isn't coming up - try again. As you move forward to the next photo the relevent text appears below the photo with a scroll down panel The short list also gives some forgettables!! https://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/g994/12-cars-that-define-buick-at-age-110/
  5. While researching some material on line I stumbled across the following article - written 7 years ago now but appeared in the popular mechanics magazine. https://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/g994/12-cars-that-define-buick-at-age-110/
  6. Over the years I have noticed a couple of subtle differences. Wheels for instance are 15" X 6.50"L ( same as 70 Series ) while 40 Series are 15" X 6.00"L. Workshop manual lists the overall width at widest point as 80" ( again same as the 70 Series ) while the 40 Series is only 79.4". Production listed as only 10,697. And here's a link to show just how usable this model Buick is https://forums.aaca.org/topic/194624-australian-buick-national-meet-and-tour/?tab=comments#comment-987150
  7. Greg, I think you will have to attach the surround to the main radiator brackets as original otherwise things will be a bit loose. I actually used these stainless rivet head bolts which you can get from Bobs Automobilia. https://bobsautomobilia.com/hardware/rivet-head-bolt-10-32-x-1-2-long-1924-30-.-rb-10/ You can see them in this photo of my car before the front fenders were fitted.
  8. Greg, you are missing the radiator mounting bracket. This is the bracket that holds the radiator core and mounts the whole radiator/grill unit to the chassis. The outer shell ( in your photograph ) is riveted to it using the 2 holes you have filled and painted over. The 3 holes in the missing bracket are the fender bracket mounting points. The whole unit ( shell riveted to radiator mounting bracket ) as shown in Tim's photos bolts to the front cross member by a single central bolt. I have attached some photos of my old 1934 Series 40 while under restoration which may help. You may find the missing bracket still has the radiator attached to it!
  9. Judging by the passenger reactions this 1934 Series 40 Roadster looks like it is travelling at warp speed!!
  10. What can I say, hate throwing oldies away!
  11. Parked next to a 1950 Jetback Coupe.
  12. Mate - thanks for keeping us all on the straight and narrow! The next Australian Nationals will be held in 2020 and the Victorian Club are vested with running it. SO, I guess we can expect you and Rita to head on down now you will have some free time!!
  13. Bill, This link to a 1936 Roadmaster includes many photos which may help https://rmsothebys.com/hf15/hershey/lots/1936-buick-roadmaster-convertible-phaeton/1077489
