  1. Thanks for the input ply33. I also owned a 1934 Dodge sedan in the past. This crossmember also resembles the one on that vehicle. John
  2. This is kind of a potluck post. I uncovered this rear engine crossmember among my goodies the other day. I believe it's from a mid-1930's DODGE 1/2 ton truck, but may also fit other MOPAR models of this vintage. This crossmember measures 27-1/2" wide. It is solid. The price is just $25, plus the shipping.

  5. This 1939 BUICK crossmember mounts at the engine rear. It is from a '39 Special, but may also fit a Century. I haven't looked at the parts book. This crossmember measures 26-1/2" across. The price is just $25, plus the shipping
  6. Thanks for checking in with that good information, Bloo. I just looked at the 1938 BUICK shop manual, and the 1939 supplement shop manual again, and now see the written reference about use of the hypoid gear adapter you mentioned. However, the adapter is not pictured. It would be interesting to see what this adapter looks like. Perhaps it could be easily made, which would extend the useful year range of the BUICK pinion depth setting tool I'm selling. John
  7. This is an late-1930's to 1940's BUICK dealer promotional thermometer. This neat thermometer is from the same BUICK series of dealer promotional items as the BUICK miniature road construction sign ashtray that you may have seen. This excellent condition thermometer reads “BUICK” below the mercury tube. The Bakelite base is embossed “It’s Hot. Better Buy BUICK”. Measures 3” high. I’ve seen a number of this particular BUICK dealer thermometer over the years, and It would be hard to find a better example of this thermometer these days. NOTE: Please pardon all the dust on the Bakelite base. I didn't notice that before taking the photos. It's clean now! The price is $85, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking.

  9. Hi, Lamar! I found another one of these nifty BUICK advertising thermometers in my stash. This is an late-1930's to 1940's BUICK dealer promotional thermometer.

  10. Thanks for chiming in with some good info old-tank. And Lamar, instead of all of this "like" stuff you've been doing.....why don't you step up and buy something I'm selling?!!! A happy Fourth of July to all. John
  11. FIRST OFF: It's really hard to take photos of shiny hubcaps. Please disregard all of the reflections you see in my pictures. These are not dents or blemishes, but rather are reflections of me and the trees around where I was taking these photos. I'm selling a set of FIVE very nice 1955 Chrysler Windsor hubcaps. I personally removed four of these from a 17,000 mile Windsor convertible in 1978. These four are very nice....although I can't call them "perfect". The fifth hubcap will make a good spare. It is very presentable, but not quite as nice as the other four. These '55 Chrysler Windsor hubcaps have been stored inside for over 40 years. They are in much better condition than most of the 65-year-old hubcaps showing up at swap meets these days. The price is $130 for the set of five, plus shipping.

  13. Nice work, Bob. Your rear end jack looks super. Glad you're enjoying your purchase. John
  14. NOTE: These hubcaps are very bright and reflective. What you're seeing in the photos are NOT blemishes, scrapes, or dents. You're seeing reflections of me, and trees from around where I took the pictures. This is a set of four 14" 1966-1967 DODGE CHARGER hubcaps that I've had in storage since 1978. They are in wonderful condition overall. These are NOT the kind of beat-up Charger spinner hubcaps you're likely to see at swap meets these days. This set I'm selling was put on my shelves over 40 years ago...back when you could still find these with undented outer rims and spinners without pits. One look at the BACK of these hubcaps (no or very little rust) will tell you they have been out of service for ages. I would rate three of these Charger hubcaps "excellent", with wonderful chrome on the spinners and the "spiders", good black paint, and super nice outer stainless steel rims. The fourth hubcap is "very good", but does have slight pitting on one blade of the spinner where it joins the center, and a very minor (in my opinion) dent in the stainless rim. The price for this set of four 1966-67 DODGE CHARGER hubcaps is $195, plus the shipping.

  16. This is an original BUICK Dealership Service Tool for rear end work. It enables the mechanic to set the depth that the pinion engages the ring gear. This is BUICK service tool #J-681-A. It uses a built-in micrometer to gauge the setting. Very well-built. This tool has a brass plate on it covering the specs for 1931 to 1936 BUICK's. However, I looked in a few late 1930's BUICK shop manuals I have, and the same tool was shown in the rear end section. The depth specs were covered. So, this tool should be usable on a wide range of BUICK years. I spotted a very similar-looking tool online that was being used on a 1953 BUICK. I've included a photo from the 1938 BUICK shop manual showing this exact same tool. This original BUICK pinion depth setting tool looks to be complete, and in useable condition. However, because of its age, it is being sold "as-is". The price is $125, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking. John
  17. This is an original, in-box, AC PF 7 oil filter. It has the nut on the top (or bottom, I guess), that some guys like on their high point restorations. It has that very period look, compared to a non-nut PF 7. For 1959 to 1965 BUICK, OLDSMOBILE, PONTIAC, and CADILLAC. This filter is in very good condition, with no paint issues. The price is $80, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking. John
  18. This will be a great memorabilia item for any OPEL owner. I purchased this unusual BUICK OPEL porcelain sign from Ralph Crisp many years ago. As some of you know, Ralph was a long-time BUICK factory service rep., who had great expertise and recall for most things BUICK technical from the late 1930's to the 1970's. Ralph worked out of the BUICK Kansas City zone office toward the end of his career. Ralph told me this BUICK OPEL sign was displayed outside that make's dealer support office door in the zone building. I believe Ralph may have "acquired" this sign, when BUICK stopped selling OPEL's through its North American dealerships. This is likely a very limited production sign, made for BUICK corporate use only. High quality porcelain. Two-sided. Just a few tiny nicks on the edges, as shown in the photos. Measures 9" high by 9-3/8" wide. You just don't see much in OPEL porcelain signs. The photos show both side of the sign. The price is $195, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking.

  20. Thanks for posting, Bob. I'm glad that you're happy with your purchase. Nothing like those Kent-Moore BUICK factory tools, is there? In response to your question....the second rear end jack is STILL AVAILABLE. It was a pleasure doing business with you, Bob. John
  21. This interesting poster was issued by BUICK in 1996. It commemorates 60 years of the BUICK Roadmaster model....1936-1996. Measures 18" by 24". In NOS condition, never hung. Disregard any glare seen in the black edges of this poster. That's just a camera thing. The price is $18, INCLUDING shipping in the U.S. Thanks for looking. John
  22. This BUICK-issued poster showcases the cars and the people that influenced BUICK motor car design and production over the years. This quality poster was issued by BUICK in 1993, to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the company. Lots of well-done illustrations of BUICK people and cars, plus excellent color. Good-sized, measuring 24" by 36". NOS condition, never hung. I only have one to sell. The price is $23, INCLUDING the shipping in the U.S. Thanks for looking. John
