  1. Hello, I need to know where the frame VIN is located on a 58 Olds. I am trying to title one, but they'll most likely need to look at the frame VIN at the time of inspection. Any help is appreciated.
  2. Anyone out there have a turn signal lever for a 51-era Nash Rambler? It is the one that makes the 90 degree turn and goes into the dash. I also need the turn signal switch if you have that too. Thank you

  4. Thank you for the lead, but unfortunately the car HAS to be a 4 door sedan or hardtop. For some reason finding a nice original is kind of tough.
  5. Just note of caution, I think the LeSabre's inner fenders are different than the Wildcat's, unless your LeSabre is a wagon. The LeSabre non-wagons did not come with the 401, and the battery is on the passenger side inner fender, whereas the Wildcat/Electra/Estate wagon has the battery on the driver's side. The LeSabre wagons came with the 401s, and the front inner structure is the same as the upper series cars. The LeSabre's inner fenders are also built a little different than the W/E/Wagon's as well.
  6. Hello, I am looking for a nice original rust-free (or as near as possible) 57 Fairlane 500 4 door sedan or hardtop. I do not want a 2 door, and it HAS to be a Fairlane 500. Color doesn't matter as much as originality, but I really like them in green or yellow. I would really like a nice running/driving original car, but not a super low mile high dollar car, just a reasonably priced decent clean original with original interior. I absolutely love the looks of these cars in a 4 door, and just want one for a daily commuter.
  7. Hello, I am really, REALLY, wanting to find a couple NOS diecast moldings for a stick-shift 64 Wildcat coupe I am restoring. Other than these few items, the all of the exterior trim of my car is NOS, so I am basically begging for some help. What I need are: 1. Left door lower diecast ribbed molding 2. Right door lower diecast ribbed molding 3. Left Quarter lower diecast ribbed molding, in front of the wheel arch 4. (5) fender Ventiports. I have one, but need a total of 6. Is there anyone out there that can help? I have been looking for these parts for a few years now, and sadly nothing has come up yet. Any leads are GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.
  8. I wouldn't part it. Looks too solid and complete. If you sell it, let me know, I'd be interested in it. I love the 60 Buicks.
  9. My 87 Electra estate had a factory CB, but the mic is missing. I keep looking on eBay, but just have not seen the correct one yet. It is the mic that has 'GM' on it, with the digital readout. I think it is the same one that Cadillac's had also. Thank you, Matt
  10. Thanks a ton, Bill! Much appreciated. I knew the windshield was an older one due to the logo and the thickness, but just was curious as to how old. Yes, there is an old beater 53 Roadmaster estate lurking in the barn, which I have had for about 10 years. Found it in a warehouse under an inch of dust two (2!) blocks from my shop. It came with two truckloads of NOS and good used 53 parts - windshield included, parts books, manuals, another complete and nice original 53 Roadmaster sedan, 2 sets of Skylark wires, and an awesome vintage Jacobs longboard. Thanks again! Matt
  11. I have a NOS windshield for my 53 Roadmaster Estate wagon, and I would like to know if anyone is familiar with the date coding on OEM glass. It has the etched 'Shaded' and 'Safety Plate' with the LOF diagonal in the box and the date code is AS-1-EB. I am sure it is not a 53-produced windshield, but am just curious as to how old it is. Any help is appreciated Matt
  12. This one's easy for me. I have always said the 63-64 Buick Electra 63-64 Oldsmobile 98 are very underrated. I am not saying this is a bad thing, though, as you can find a very nice unrestored fully operational loaded one of these for under $5000, sometimes they are almost give-away priced. I love the way these two cars drive down the highway, and have personally put over 120,000 miles on a 64 Electra coupe with no, and I am serious, no major mechanical problems other than needing some brake pads and general tune-up stuff. These cars look great in convertibles, coupes, and 4 doors. The 64 98 and 64 Electra 4 door 4 window hardtop is a great and sporty looking car. 1960 Edsels are also underrated to me. Yes, I know, it is a 60 Ford with a goofy grille and stretched 60 Pontiac taillights, but unless it is a convertible, their prices don't reflect their obscenely low production numbers. There are definitely more, but these are the two that first jump to mind.
  13. I also have a 69 XKE 4.2 Roadster for sale, but is not a project. It is a very nice road-ready car with both tops. If interested, let me know. I can send pictures to you. Matt Wichita
  14. I am looking for a set of 50 98 fender skirts for my 98 sedanette. If anyone has a nice set, please let me know. Thank you.
  15. Tod, what are you asking for the Olds? I am interested. Matt Wichita
