  1. Not even 24 hours into the auction, it has met the reserve!
  2. 74-75 changes dramatically... Here is a picture of a 71-72 bezel. Note the chrome trim around the woodgrain. 73 doesn't have this - the woodgrain goes all the way to the edge. Both my 71's also have red/orange needles Might have been a bezel swap at some time....71-73 dashes are all the same and all the parts interchange.. Interesting you found this in a 73....it's hard to mistake those bumpers
  3. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2443619498
  4. Here are 3 shots of Faithful Pursuit! More to come later...
  5. Those aren't 73 dash bezels 71 or 72 had that type. 73 had nothing but a woodgrain look to them....no chrome trim. That piece looks beautiful though! Too bad it doesn't have the rear defog option.
  6. The VIN will tell you if it's a GS or not.
  7. Well let's see.... Try this one on for size comparison on color
  8. If you need assistance in posting multiple pictures, feel free to email me anything you would like to see posted and I'll do it. adamm@buickpartsdirectory.com
  9. Another twilight turqouise car!!??? Where!?? To this day, I have never seen another car but my LeSabre in that color. And it's one of the more attractive greens
  10. I have a 73 Riv for sale here for $1000 if you're interested!
  11. Pics?? Sounds way cool...would love to see it
  12. Bummer that Sloan doesn't have invoices for the 71's. We might have been able to find that black 71 Yeah, the previous owner of the Riv was going for the "stealth" look as he was painting all the trim black....including the stainless pieces around the windows. On a lighter note, it has a stock rebuilt 455 in it....pretty lame though. Needs lots of work. I would kill to see a picture of a 3spd setup in the Centurion. How weird would that look?
  13. The swap in action:::: http://www.v8buick.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=29692&highlight=hey+smartin
  14. Good eye Brian! Yes, I have in my hands a ROUGH 73 Riv GS Stage1. I bought it as a donor for my posi rear end. This past Sunday, I swapped the rears and now it's back up for sale locally. There are some big problems with the car that I'm not willing to tackle myself, so that's why I'm letting it go. Pictures....let's see.... Pics can be seen here: http://www.v8buick.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=29264&highlight=hey+smartin It looks 1000% better in the pictures than in real life. You should see the roof up close....yikes!
  15. 1971 B bodies had a wheel base of 124". (LeSabre, Centurion) 1971 C bodies had a wheel base of 127". (Electra)
  16. I'm willing to bet there are a few folks on the board here that have an extra one or 2 of these tubes. Also, check the v8buick board. This part was a common between most of the models.
  17. I think what you're referring to are the Aluminum rockers? There is a guy giving aluminum and steel assemblies away on the v8buick board... http://www.v8buick.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=27495
  18. Did this come from St. Louis?? Check these sites out for parts: http://www.oldbuickparts.com/ http://www.buickpartsdirectory.com/salvage.htm
  19. contact: bill@buickstreet.com He just converted his 66 to a dual quad setup. You can see the picture of it on www.buickstreet.com It is the top picture!
  20. I have a buddy with a 62 225 ragtop....and he was able to find the right stuff to replace the old. It was kindof a houndstooth pattern foamy fabric. About 1/8" thick padding. His name is Hank Deglman. I can try to find out who he wnet to for the fabric/cardboard trunk liner. It sounds like Jerry pulled the original stuff out, but it was painted black at some time in the past.
  21. I got mine yesterday! It's a great read.... Good stuff <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />
