  1. John, That's unreal. Everything on that car is perfect.
  2. I'm with Dave....LOVE the 58's!! One of my dream cars is a 58 Limited convertible. oh the drooling....
  3. That's right... I knew it was one way or the other...thanks for the clarification!!
  4. Correct, but there were sedans and hardtops (pillars, no pillars). I know of some 4 door sedans, but have not ever seen a 4 door hardtop.
  5. I don't know that they made any 4 door hardtops...I could be mistaken though. (Centurion models only)
  6. Have you ever rebuilt a carb before? Sounds like the idle circuits are clogging. Open it up, clean the parts and all the passages. Blow them out with compressed air and reassemble it. If anything, it will confirm that your problem lies there or somewhere else, depending on if it works or not.
  7. Have you tried www.v8buick.com yet? Lots of 67 guys and gals on there selling parts!
  8. Ok boys and girls.... A few pics, and then a link to the video you're all anxiously awaiting to see!!! Right click on the link below and click on "Save Target As" then save it to your computer to view it when it is finished downloading... http://www.buickpartsdirectory.com/fpursuit/alive.mov

  10. I just saw it!!!! They definitely made Buick sound like one of the most "plain Jane" stamp-out cars ever. I think people are missing the mark when they declare something like that...especially when there's so much more to the history they nobody sees. I agree with Dave.....what a stupid comment.
  11. heh! That's good Reminds me of my family asking me if I was sane when I bought the 71 LeSabre.....and then the 71 Centurion.
  12. Or wait for the new 455 iron blocks to come out...
  13. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Adam- The car did not meet the reserve and the auction has closed. I am asking $7500 for the car. I have put over $2500 into it (new top, gaskets, carbuerator etc). Please let me know if you're interested.

  14. I can't help you on the seat trim, but I see you have a 72 parts car... Do you by chance have the trunk lip moulding on that car?
  15. FINALLY got this reply:: <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">We are not disclosing the reserve. The color is Twilight Turquoise. It is the original color and it was repainted several years ago. The paint job is really beautiful. I'm sorry, I don't know what the cowl tag information is! Can you explain? </div></div>
  16. Rebuild the quadrajet...you'll be very happy with it when it is properly tuned. Might want to give John Osborne a call... 270-737-4467 JOP455@AOL.COM
  17. Ya know, that color looks AWFULLY close to this 72 GS350...
  18. Absolutely I bookmarked the auction the first day it came out... I'm very anxious to see how much it goes for. I REALLY love the color combo on this car. It is very stunning. Sometimes I wish I had some play money to snatch this thing up...and to get my old LeSabre back. Man oh man...maybe someday I'll be able to clone my LeSabre with another as solid as it was. CURSED HAIL DAMAGE!!!!! Doing a side-by-side of the 2 green cars...
  19. Ouch!!! Where are you located? That's a 71 LeSabre, BTW
