  1. I have a 60 Invicta convertible that I am trying to save. The car needs and entire bottom. It's been sitting on its belly for 25+ years. I have a good 4 door hardtop frame I would like to use but I know the frames were different. Does anyone know how they were different? Is there extra bracing that I can transfer from the convert frame to the good frame? If it can be used I would like to start the restoration of the donor frame and weld in the factory reinforcments. I don't want to get this thing torn down yet unless I know I can do something with it.
  2. I am looking for any 1960 Buick hearses, ambulances, limozines, combinations, service cars, squad cars or taxi's. Any coach builder or condition. If you know of any email me at rlt60lesabre@aol.com
  3. I have to many to do them all so I will pick my most heavily optioned and expensive car. 1960 Flxible Buick Premier Ambulance. 2 tone paint Casino Cream and Copper metallic The lower color Casino Cream was extra cost due to the extra body prep.

  4. That won't be easy. They made fewer than a 1000 sticks in 1960. What body style do you have? I have a 2 door hardtop stick and a friend of mine has a Wagon with a stick and I know of 1 convertible and one 4 door sedan that were factory 3 speeds. Thats it. It has become very rare car.
  5. Good Deal! I'm glad to see some more Buicks in there. They did mine in May and I don't think I have seen another Buick since. Beautiful car.....I'm surprized I didn't think of getting bikini girls on my car but its a hearse so finding willing souls would be near impossible.
  6. My Transmiision in my 1960 Flxible Buick has been extremily well maintanied and has 96,000 easy miles. The problem is I started to here a noise in the torque converter area. It sounded like the inspection cover was rubbing the converter. I had to get home so I drove easy and then I noticed my pink fluid had turned black. I pulled the pan last night and there is a 3/16 inch coating of metal on the bottom of the pan. I don't know the inner workings of a Dynaflow....yet. Does anyone here have any transmission experience that could give me ideas of what happened before I start pulling the transmis
  7. Do you have any extra Fury parts? I have a 57 Fury and a 58 Belvedere Sport coupe I am restoring. I do have a 58 Savoy 2 door parts car it may have some odd ball parts you need but I have stripped it pretty clean.
  8. I have a few 60 Flxibles and a bunch of factory photos of all Flxible models and years. I have a bunch with 51's, maybe some interior shots. I can bet that the 51 attaches the same as the 60. Flxible kept things simple and even though the bodystyle is different the curtains should attach the same.
  9. I have had a relative in Mississippi recall that the state patrol used 60 Buicks. Can anyone else back this up? I have only been able to locate photos of Chevrolets. Memories get foggy after 40 years and they do look similar. Does anyone know of other states that may have used the Buick in 60?
  10. Thats a nice looking car. You don't see to many Invicta coupes around my way, or at all I have only run across 1 and it was in Daytona Fl. You will have fun with it, you have something not seen everyday and the haul ass too.
  11. In deed I have. But like any collection you want to complete it. I am not complaining about the car I just don't do business like that and back down when someone else wants a car unless its a 60. The car on Ebay was offered to me again, for 5000. It was 6000 last year. I don't have the money and if I did it would not be worth more than 3 at the absolute most to me.
  12. It just pisses me off that I realy want the car and it keeps going to people that only want to profit from owning it, then raise the price again and offer it to me like its the deal of the century.
  13. I have known about this Flxette for several years. I can't seem to buy it for some reason. Lets go back a couple years. The car was running well and the owner blew the (the head gasket) motor. The car that was not for sale was sold but he didn't call me. The people that bought it only bought it to resell. The car was put on Ebay about May last year. I saw the car and then told them I wanted it. I did as asked and got a cashers check and was about to mail it the next morning UPS NDA and called to confirm the address was right. No answer. Sent repeated emails, no answer. called the cell number,
  14. THANKS FOR THE INFO!!! I live 10 minutes from little 5, and have over 30 antiques on my property. Not to menchion that They are visable from the road and I am known as the one to see for an antique.
  15. I have a 1959 Ford Fairlane 500 4 door sedan that I need to sell quick. The car has typical rust and could be restored but it is a 4 door so if is better suited for parts. The only item not with the car anymore is the rear axle. I gave 600 for this car but will take 300. If interested I will send pictures. rlt60lesabre@aol.com I am in the Atlanta Georgia area.
  16. I have an aqua green 1957 Pontiac Chiefton 2 door sedan. The car has perfect quarters and rockers but rust in the floors doors and trunk. I gave 800 for this car but need to sell it quick so I will take 400 for it. The drivetrain is complete and it even retains the original dog dish hub caps. If interested I will email pictures rlt60lesabre@aol.com I am in the Atlanta Georgia area.
  17. I have a rough but restorable 1960 Pontiac Bonniville 2 door hardtop that is factory black with red interior and still has the original 389 4 bbl and drive train in place. I also have a 60 Starcheif 4 door hardtop to go with it for parts. I have 1200 in just the Bonniville but need to sell them quick and would take 600 for both cars. If interested I will send pictures. rlt60lesabre@aol.com I am in the Atlanta Georgia area.
  18. I am going to have two sell two vehicles and though I would offer them here first. One is a 1940 Ford Woodie Station Wagon and the other is a 1940 Ford Panel truck. They are very rough but I am going to price them cheap to sell them quick. I gave 3 grand for them a few years ago and will take half that for the pair. I would hate to see them go downhill any more than they are now and I do not have the resources to put into restoring them. If interested I will send pictures. Email me at rlt60lesabre@aol.com. I am in the Atlanta Georgia area.
  19. I just bought a car that sat for 20 years. I just bough a 1957 Plymouth Fury that was in good shape in the 80's when he bought it but has been in the rain ever since. I will get it back up and goiung this year though. It survived complete if you can believe it.
  20. I have done some research on the 47 Flxible. It was built on the 711x Roadmaster Chassis. Only 357 cars were built in 1947. More could have been built but that year a fire gutted part of the factory in January making 47 very rare. To compare 646 cars were built in 48. This car is a model B21-747 Premier funeral car. The base price for this car was $4992.00. The 3 speed manual tranny was standard and the Dynoflow was a 200 dollar option. This car was a very prestigious vehicle in its day being more exspensize than both the Miller and Surperior funeral vehicles. The suicide doors are rare but n
  21. What is the car worth? That is an almost impossible question to answer. Hearses and ambulances are not large production vehicles by any means. So if you are specifically into them you are willing to pay far more than someone that thinks they would look good towing his 2 door to a show. The "holy grail" of hearse is the 59 Cadillac. I have watched incomplete rust buckets bring 6 grand and change. Flxibles generaly don't bring much. The most valuble years for Flxible are the fin years 59 and 60. You will never find a 59 they only made 50 and 1 is known to exist, so that car is very valuble for o
  22. I have seen pictures of this thing somewhere before and it is not a Flxible car. I think it is unlikely that it was ever a flower car. The reason being is the bed is to short to haul a casket. Under that fancy stainless deck that is on flower cars is a set of rollers. I have seen a few with out but the back is designed to haul caskets. The Flxible flower cars of that era would look like an ambulance or hearse with no windows. The fact remains that it is a professional looking job and if we go with the flower car theme it would have come from a small coach builder (there were dozens) and it w
  23. The total of 14 includes the 2 I am buying from you. Go to the "1960 Flxible Buick" post. I described the cars pretty good but you may want to add to it. I even mencioned the air ready option on the Flxette. That is the first time I have seen that option.
  24. That is my car. I will have it in Charlotte this April as well. Not the good side of my car. The side doors back on the passenger side was a crappy repaint that didn't hold up well compared to the original paint. I was supposed to have fresh paint for the show this year but the guy that is doing it has stalled me till it was to late to have it done in time. You will have to stop by one day.
