  1. Sorry it took so long to upload the thermometer picture, we had a lot of hurricane,flood damage, no power, etc. Enjoy
  2. Yes, the car is located in New Jersey
  3. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p> </o:p> This 1939 Buick Special is special; this well maintained solid vehicle, with only 53,140 miles, has been under a constant restoration process over time as it is also being driven to shows and cruise’s. The inline 8 cylinder engine runs excellently, powering this attractive sedan quietly down the road with its 3 speed manual transmission.<o:p></o:p> This car has a lot of firsts to it; first year for column shift, first year for factory directional’s and the only year for its very distinctive grill design. Also; there is a very rare accessory, the side view mirror with thermometer as part of stanchion. This is a get in and drive car, improve as you go at your leisure. <o:p></o:p> The pluses and minuses are: Interior was completely reupholstered in the mid 1990’s, the entire car was repainted in its original Black color in 2000, vehicle was always mechanically maintained as the priority, the motor and transmission mounts were replaced in 2001 as well as having the shock absorbers rebuilt. Car has always been garaged. Except for some rust on the rear roll pan there is no other rust or rot on the car, the underneath is rust free, albeit dirty with a coating of oil and grease. No oil leaks, just the normal weeping as is expected. The original door weather stripping is in place but could be replaced if you wish it to be weather tight. All the glass is good shape with some delamination starting, but not in any field of driving vision. All the windows operate as they should including the rear sliding quarter windows. The horn button will need restoration, all the parts are included, but not on the steering wheel, which is aged cracked, there is an additional horn button installed at present. The gauges work and are in excellent condition. The wide white wall tires add to the distinctive look and have plenty of tread life left, for miles you will eventually drive. The brakes stop the car straight and true.<o:p></o:p> Included with the car is the original owner’s bill of sale from the dealership, warranty card and brochure, all the instructional attachment cards, sales brochures, and show information boards about the car.<o:p></o:p> This car is very presentable to show at the local level without embarrassment; you won’t be disappointed with this gem of fun. You will find this car described honestly and is priced accordingly. Contact: RicksKlassics@aol.com 732=890=0084<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Asking: $13,500.oo<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p>

  5. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p> </o:p> This excellently running and operating car is an older restoration. There are no rips or tears in the elegant brown leather upholstery. The body wood is excellent, no rot nor metal rust on the body cladding. Body is tight, no door sag or looseness, even the original flooring is in excellent condition. The Green and Black paint still shines, but is cracked and crazed in spots, as aged Nitrocellulose Lacquer paint has a tendency to do. The top is slightly worn, no rips, tears, or holes, the rear isinglass is excellent. Studebaker used nickel plating for their trim work, all in excellent condition.<o:p></o:p> The 35 HP 4 cylinder engine runs perfectly, 1913 is the first year for the Electric Starter/ Generator, just recently gone through internally. Engine is coupled through the leather cone clutch, excellent shape, to the 3 speed transaxle, which was overhauled in 1997. The 2 wheel brakes work properly, relined.<o:p></o:p> This car is very stabile at speed, meaning that the bearings, kingpins, and steering are maintained and serviced. The wheels and felloes are tight and straight.<o:p></o:p> Other features of this car include; correct Holley carburetor, pre-heater, and linkage, correct Wagner starter/ generator (properly functioning), Stewart speedometer (fully functioning), 8 day Clock ( works for 48-72 Hours, then sticks, could use a cleaning), All functioning head lights, parking lights, dash board light, and tail light and stop light added for safety, functioning oil sight glass flow monitor – great oil flow, oil level gauge, correct Splitdorf Coil/Switch and Distributor/Magneto, correct Rexo-II electric horn with steering wheel button, Rubes bulb horn w/ <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:metricconverter w:st="on" ProductID="4 ft">4 ft</st1:metricconverter> conduit dual turn trumpet, dual spare tire mount w/ 2 rims and tires, Rear trunk, storage under the rear seat, removable swivel jump seats.<o:p></o:p> Also included; Owners manual and parts manual, Wagner starter/generator service manual, a folder of miscellaneous information, hand crank and hub cap wrench.<o:p></o:p> This car is tour ready for you to have a lot of fun.

  6. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p> </o:p> The perfect starter car for the new collector car hobbyist. This 1941 Buick Super, Series 50, which has been sitting idle in a garage for several years, now running, is a complete original car that has had the interior reupholstered in Cream Beige, and a repaint, Buick Green. This is a rot/ rust free car, body and floor in excellent condition, all stainless and chrome pieces are there, some of the pot metal pieces are showing the pits from age. The 248 ci. inline 8 cylinder engine runs good, no smoke. The 3 speed manual column shift transmission has a growl in 2<SUP>nd</SUP> gear, but no noise when in 3<SUP>rd</SUP> and cruising, clutch is fine, brakes work good, the lever action hydraulic shocks are a little spongy from sitting, the car rides decent considering the bias ply tires, recommend replacement as there are some cracks on the inside sidewalls. The lights work, the radio, and heater do not work at present. The weather stripping is well worn and will need replacement to make the car weather tight, no broken glass. One of the most interesting features of this car is the side opening hood, that can be opened from either side or completely removed.Vehicle is very presentable as is.<o:p></o:p> This car is great for someone who wants to enter the old car hobby inexpensively, but is able to drive it and finish off the restoration at a leisurely pace. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p>Asking: $ 3999.oo Contact: RicksKlassics@aol.com 732-890-0084
  7. For your consideration we have an excellent example of why the world famous statement; “Built Like a Cadillac” exists. Cadillac was the standard of the world at the time. And, this 1941 Cadillac Model 63 is proof: the model 63 was built for only 2 years, 1941 and 1942, taking its sleek fastback design from the coupe and crossing it over to this sedan. This restored, AACA National Winner (1995), with <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:metricconverter w:st="on" ProductID="97,000 miles">97,000 miles</st1:metricconverter>, was an impeccable car to start with, as it has been a well maintained vehicle, no rust, the Gray Broadcloth seats are original as well as headliner and wood grained dash. New carpeting and door panels were installed at that time. The Tutone Light Blue with Silver Blue Roof is an older repaint, still in excellent condition. It’s 346 ci. V8 engine is quite powerful, 150 HP, coupled with the 4 speed Hydrostatic Automatic Transmission, (first year for automatic transmission). This car was built for touring, excellent ride quality and good handling, considering its weight and size. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> Everything functions and works as it should, including the original Radio. This car reeks of elegance and status, draws a crowd every time it is driven.<o:p></o:p> Make this car yours; you won’t be disappointed. Shop manuals, original literature, original dealer key fob, and other miscellaneous items are included. <o:p>Asking: $32,500.oo More Pictures: www.memoriesdreams.com </o:p> <o:p>Contact: RicksKlassics@aol.com 732-890-0084</o:p> <o:p> </o:p>
