  1. Thank you !! a 2dr Blue door panel and trim would make my year
  2. Hello all, Im looking for a few parts for a 58 Buick Limited 2 dr. - passenger side door panel. Blue, but would take any color in any condition. Roadmaster or Limited will work. - door sill plates - both sides - limited only rear 1/4 trim. I attached a picture and circled ones needed. - both front fender headlight eyebrows - any other 2 dr Limited only side trim I may also be interested in. I may also buy 4 dr limited rear side trim and splice together if anyone has that. thank you ryan@nutsaboutcars.com
  3. Thanks for the info. I called Wallace Wade tire in Texas. He said his book showed BF Goodrich only for the 58 Olds. And for my car being AC equiped it was a BF Goodrich 900-14 Silvertown. That jives with my original spare which makes me happy. Uniroyal is interesting. I hadnt heard this but worth some research. Thank you.
  4. Thanks for the info on Fusick. Lots of good stuff there !
  5. I have a 1958 Oldsmobile 98 2 door. Im curious as to what the original brand and size was. The spare looks original and its a 900-14 BF Goodrich Silvertown. Just curious as Im going to need a new set and wanted to stay original. Thank you, Ryan

  10. Hello, A good friend of mine is trying to figure out what this Mopar shifter goes to. It was in a bunch of parts he recently aquired and all he knows is it's Mopar and has a part number on it ( 2643898 ). Anybody have any clue what this might go to ? Thanks, Ryan Celina,TX
  11. Hey BJM, I hear what your saying, but it's not like I said they made a 64 Electra that was Electric powered in 64... hee hee You seemed firey for someone that doesn't know 100% that they didn't make one. I'm 100% with Matt, never say never. I started this posting looking for accurate answers. Looking for help from the Buick gurus. I told Matt about this car a few years ago when the current owner found it in Cali. He's super picky on documentation like Matt is. I could type a book on how odd this guy is, but won't bother boring you all to death. The story on this car was the first owner wanted the Electra, but had a boat and wanted a manual shift to pull it around Cali. As far as the seat situation, the one he has is a bench seat car with console plate on the floor. It looks just like the one I've seen in Matt's 63 Lesabre 4 speed car I found for him in Colorado when I lived there. I'm not sure if it's 100% like that one. But it's a flat chrome shifter plate on the floor with the buick tri-shield emblem on it. I don't know if Matt ever followed up with the Pontiac guy in Cali I gave him the number to, but he had verified the car that got crushed in San Diego, was a bucket seat car. So one of each existed. The bench seat car I saw "live" was legit, but the bucket seat car I've never seen 'live' I took the guys word for it. He told me it was original and numbers matching. I met this guy looking for 61-64 4 speed Bonnevilles.... searching for myself and Matt. So in my small world I only know the bench seat car is factory built, but can't give any data on the bucket seat car. That non-crushed car is over in Sweden now, so no chance on getting my eyes on it without a plane trip. Bench seat car is still here in the US. Matt is probably best suited to answer the floor question for sure....I think he's got one of everything at his place... Ryan
  12. Hey Matt, Thanks for all the detail. I remember telling the guy on the phone about that Galaxie... They never never never did make a tri-power 427 car, and I ate crow when he produced the build sheet. Still to this day it was the only one I've ever seen. Ford guys still think I'm full of it, but I held the sheet in my hand and looked at all the VINs and paperwork. The crazy thing about that car is it was an R coded car, but it said Special order on the form from the dealer for the 3x2 setup. On the Buick, you are the almighty intel guy on 4 speeds these days for sure. I know that was early on about the 425 example, and I'm with you completely on never say never. My gut says they probably made a handful, and the guy with this car has many 4 speed cars and has been around doing this since I was born. He's only seen two, and he bought both. I'm also taking the guys word for it on the one in Cali, but the other two I've seen. The one in Cali was also looked over by a guy into the rarest of the rare Pontiacs and he knows his stuff. He claims he had ran all the #'s and it was legit. Well, I hope it pans out. The car is not cheap, so trust me that I'll use a fine tooth comb.
  13. Hey there, I assure you they made these cars, and if I do get a chance to purchase it, I will be glad to scan in the build sheet and take pics. These cars were special ordered and I would assume only a few were made. The one in California was hit in the 1/4 hard and ended up getting crushed due to being so wrecked. I was also told once they didn't make 63 Wildcat 425 4 speed cars and found one of those for a non-believer. I only like the rare stuff. My old buddy Matt Menges in Wichita knows I find the rarest of the rare and he doubted me on 425s being offered in 63 until I found one... Oh, I'm a Ford guy also and someone told me they never made a 63 427 Galaxie with a tri-power ( only single or dual 4's ), well, a guy that had one special ordered still has that car in Denver Colorado with build sheet. No book ever said they made that drivetrain setup. But, he has window sticker, build sheet and speical order ticket to prove it. Anyway, if anyone has any good data I would appreciate it. Thanks, Ryan
