  1. PRICED REDUCED TO $75, plus the shipping. This is a very nice '79 BUICK Dealer's Album. John

  3. I believe all of the '39 BUICK Tech Review copies are now spoken for. John
  4. Thanks for checking in, Bob. The chrome steering wheel trim pieces for the '49 Buick have been sold (about two weeks ago). Forgot to update that posting. On the '39 Buick Tech Review: I'll send you a PM in a moment with the details. John
  5. My pleasure, Clarke-Ruff. We have a 1939 Buick, 40 series in our family, too. A nice car around town, or on the highway. I'll check on the shipping cost to Australia....shouldn't be much extra. Will get back to you via PM here on the forum. Thanks. John
  6. This is a freebie for 1939 BUICK owners (like me). I discovered three copies of this 1939 BUICK Technical Review among my things. These are single-sided photocopies of a very helpful, 8-page publication from Barron Motor, Inc., Cedar Rapids, Iowa and Compco Shortway Repair Manuals, Oakland California. This technical review overs all series of '39 Buick. Pages for motor, clutch, tune-up, carb, transmission, brakes, and rear end are included. I find this aftermarket publication has repair info suited for the general (not dealership) mechanic. A lot of the information and the procedures are quite practical. NOTE: The information and illustrations are quite easy to read, even though the photos of the pages might not look all that great here. There's no charge for the 8-page publication. I will ship it flat, so it's easy to use, once you receive it. All I'm asking is $3 to cover the cost of a new catalog envelope, and the U.S.P.S. First Class Mail shipping. Again, I have three copies available, with one to a person, please. Post here that you want one, and then PM me for the remittance information. Thanks for looking.
  7. These metal service department poster frames (two) came from off the wall of a small town MOPAR and GM dealer here in Wisconsin. They were used to showcase factory posters, promoting dealer service specials. The overall size is 37-3/4" high by 25-3/4" wide. The poster opening in the frame is 35-3/8" high by 23-1/4" wide. Each frame has a removable, clear plastic "lens" to protect the poster. Heavy-duty construction. In very good condition, with no rust or dents. The second photo shows the rear of the frame, and the solid, heavy black plastic area that supports the back of the poster.. The price is $35 for the PAIR of frames. Shipping is additional. Thanks for looking.

  9. keiser31, you are a wizard (a helpful wizard, at that!). How did you ever come up with that '39 Buick photo so quickly? Nice going....and thank you very much for your time, and the additional help. It's interesting to see how the two factory bumper guards have been moved further outboard, to accommodate the aftermarket grille guard. You know, this style of accessory grille guard is particularly suited to the 1939 Buick. The car's vertical stainless steel trim, separating the grille halves, is particularly venerable. In my nearly 50 years of enjoying '39 Buicks, I believe I've only seen one that had an undented grille center trim before restoration. John
  10. Thanks for checking in keiser31. I haven't ever heard that term. Educational! And, a very interesting comment from you, Billy I have two 1939 Buicks, and may have purchased this grille guard from another Buick guy years ago for eventual use on one of my cars. I looked at the contour of the guard's mounting area on the bumper before doing my initial post. But, from memory, thought it was too "tall" to be right for the '39 Buick. But now, I'm going to go to my stored '39 tomorrow, and do a direct comparison. Will let you all know. Thanks again to all for helping. John
  11. Thanks for all the good information, guys. And Roy, thank you very much for taking the time to post the photos. My guard certainly looks a lot like the one at the bottom of the second ad (except three bars, rather than two). John
  12. I can't seem to get the ol' gray matter engaged on this one. Back in the day, I thought this type of aftermarket accessory bumper guard has named for its manufacturer. You know, like a "Fulton Sun Visor" or a "Smittys Glasspack Muffler". Can anyone shed some light on this.....or perhaps my memory is playing tricks on me (quite possible). Thanks for any input. John
  13. Thank you, Hans1, I'll see what I can come up with close to your suggested name. And, thanks also to you, Curti. I did look for the "What is it" forum before posting, but didn't see it. I must need stronger "readers". I'll check again more closely. John
