    This car has been posted before in FOR SALE in Oct '12. Just click on his name and view prior posts. or click here. http://forums.aaca.org/search.php?searchid=167262 Info previously posted.....'Price negotiable, asking $7900 boydlou5@att.net'
  4. your green and red arrows are all on 1 piece, thats the headlight surround piece. ...Sorry I don't have what you need.
  5. I have a 47 roadmaster grill and 'mustache' bar that fits on the top of the grill frame. If its the same for all 47 models and you can't find one closer to home, let me know.
  6. Actual window frames, I don't have in extra parts.
  7. I am not sure what pieces you are describing... but I have this piece,; its the rear side quarter window chrome ledge piece. I also have this SS strip that wraps around thes side to the rear, starting at this piece location, and I have the hidden 'snap strip', metal piece, that holds the SS strip on to the body. If these are what you are looking for , let me know.
  8. I have some odds and ends left over from my 47 roadmaster convert restoration. What do you need?
  9. seems valve covers are common in spare parts bins? I have a nice clean valve cover from a 47 320ci if there are others that need one.
  10. why do you call it a roadmaster convert.. 'clone' ? have you grafted convert top parts to a 2 dr?
  11. 3 pictures, all of the passenger side... I wonder what the dr side looks like, maybe the interior, and the engine... underneath... could be a rookie listing. Nice car if the entire car is as nice as the passenger side looks!
  12. I think it says make an offer, too on the ebay site? So the buy it now is 21k, one can offer what ever you think its worth to you. maybe 14 or 15k will be the best offer and it will sell. The interior is a bit ragged on the driver seat, and the paint is worn and touched up on the dr rear fender ( from the prior pictures seen on this forum).
  13. the one on ebay now must be Tim McCormack's car ( name from old thread) as it has the same badge and license plate on the front ( from the edge view I see of the license on the old post). and the serial plate sure seems to read the same to me. ... although its not unheard of for a posting for sale to show pictures of a car 'like the one for sale' ... I don't believe that's the case here. Super Nice car.
  14. I have to say it... the original post is over 7 years old...
  15. the pictures are gone now, but I seem to recall seeing a lot of the lower edges of the doors and floors and fenders missing due to rust away. The whole underside is essentially gone. Maybe its still worth 6000+ even in parts, ... so at least you get an assembled collection of parts, now that they are out of the woods so to speak.

    Yes, I too hate to see cars deteriorate, but we had a club member here who never took his restored car out. Another member made an observation that he was 'saving it for the next guy'. What a waste that is too ( if you like to get out and drive like I do). It is true that a car is never as good as the day it rolls out of the shop , finished in new or restored condition. But I also understand that its a shame to see anything worn out in a hurry, due to 'abuse'. We become attached to things and most people like to see them taken care of. In fact I even bought a car because I thought it deserved a better fate than I knew it would have if another guy bought it here. ( save it for restoration vs becoming a parts car).... how dumb is that?
  19. If I knew where to find one I'd get it for you, but I'll certainly be on the look out. Don't see much of Derek at the local club mtgs or events. He is a busy guy! Same here with the full calendar of 'local' car activities, but look forward to travelling back south again, (I know most US'ers consider you to be in the north!) ... maybe next spring... that was a fun trip but that was several years ago already!
  20. Just an observation, but it looks like there is a right and left side arrow. The arrow tip on the broken emblem seems to be on the 'Sil...' side and the intact emblem seems to have the arrow tip on the '... row' side. So that the arrow tip points to the front of the car?? on either side? So I'm going to guess you need a driver side emblem. or if I am overthinking this let me know!! Cheers, and hope you find one.
  21. When I think about it I can't recall seeing a redone interior that was better looking than the factory, when its redone in non original materials and/ or colors... Seems to me that the stylists at the factory style studios either consistently get it 'right' or maybe we are just used to the original and don't like change...
  22. When I see the chrome on top of the rear fenders I see a 52 Buick. I see its posted as 51 Buick . I agree the data plate info will be interesting. I know that dealers often added paint , and maybe trim to cars at the dealership, whether to a customer's order, or maybe in this case to make the 'old' model year, 51 look trendy and current with the new 52s. The next model year often arrived on the showroom floors before all the prior year models were sold... who knows... maybe the dealer installed the rear fender top trim to add some showroom sparkle.
  23. My 38 Buick was used in a movie starring Billy Zane in the Hessen Affair. Went straight to dvd. It was used as a 'star car, by one of the leads in the movie as the gangster's car. The car was treated very well and we instructed the actors in how to drive the car. ( driving lessens). We were also treated well , allowed on set and invited to have meals with the cast and crew. A very positive experience! Maybe its depends on the quality of the production company. Corsan films produced this movie.
