  1. This is the week the 49's come out for sale apparently. This one is definitely purple. The engine compartment looks half-baked and sloppy. The interior was done pretty well for a custom - they stuck with the spirit of the design but cheaped-out on the upholstery. Lot's of flash, big engine, execution, meh. It looks like a fun car you could drive and not worry too much about road muck but let's see what this goes for. https://www.ebay.com/itm/284495604815
  2. No, no reply to my request for more photos or extra parts.
  3. For a little contrast to the Roadmaster Sedanet on eBay now for $4500. https://www.ebay.com/itm/334166362315
  4. Here's one on eBay. Just one photo though. I did ask him to post more pictures this morning. https://www.ebay.com/itm/274951141134
  5. I got a set of nice reproduction radiator & heater hose clamps and put them on my rebuilt 320 with a newly repainted engine compartment. Filled it with antifreeze and water and cranked it up. All the clamps were just a leeeeetal too big and leaked. So we cut them off and put on modern ones. Anyone have a source for correct looking and fitting clamps for a '49 Buick? BTW - the heater hose clamps were from CARS, Inc. (thru Bob's). I do not recall the source of the radiator clamps.
  6. I am in Texas. I travel between Houston and Waco area every other week.
  7. I searched for a replacement for my '49 Roadmaster (with dynaflow of course) and could not find any new ones being built or that came close. I had mine rebuilt with a new core, etc. The rebuilder "did me a favor" and made the body thicker so the fan would no longer fit. We cut down the spacer and it works now. Radiator work is expensive now - about $900 for mine.
  8. If it's like 1949 Roadmaster it would be a wool carpet. I am not sure of colors used in 1950. NOTE: I thought my carpet was dark palm green for years. I lifted up the little carpet "skirt" that curls under the back of the front seat for my color example. BUT I had a surprise when we took the front seat apart and looked under the metal trim that had been screwed in place since coming from the factory, I saw it was originally dark gray.
  9. I posted the below info the Helpful Sites area of this website regarding carpet. I can't find a kit for my '49 and don't think there are any out there of worth buying. You can get the carpet by the yard at Global and have it made. Measure from door sill to door sill. I think it will take you three or four "runs" of it depending on your Buick and the width of the carpet you choose. I am going with Wilton wool and their price is much less than other suppliers like Kanter and Hirsch. I think Global supplies them. I was told by a worker at SMS that Kanter supplies SMS Fabric's Wilton wool carpet. Good luck!

  10. Mine is pretty beat up so I need a nice tank without many dents in the bottom. Let me know what you have and your price please. I tried one of the ones from TANKS but it requires a lot of modification,
  11. Wheelnut - you are correct - mine too only turns from 6 to 3 CCW. My mistake. And the key does not remove while unlocked. I got mine all back together and noticed this.
