  1. I'm in need of a nice front fender for the drivers side of my 53 Skylark. Not expecting to find one, but thought it was worth looking before repairing mine. Glenn gt1059@aol.com
  2. Anyone know who the owner of the 53 Skylark is........ wondering if its my old one? Glenn
  3. Mike, The black top against the blue is contrasting and very sharp. Quite frankly you will find that you will have the top down most of the time. The 53 Skylark is striking with the top down and looks much longer, lower and sleeker that way. Best of luck with your restoration. Glenn
  4. Hi All, Its been quite awhile since I've posted anything about the progress on this 53. She was neglected, put into storage twice and moved to a new home in Maine, but the restoration has been back underway for a few months now.
  5. Atta Boy Bob! At least yours looks to be moving forward, I have been working on mine for two years now and all I keep doing is moving backwards.
  6. DCamm, Where are you in Mass. I am in the northeast corner of CT and own a 55 Century Convertible. You are welcome to come see it anytime.
  7. Rob, I fully understand your comment, trust me I have been battling the crappy panel fit on this car for almost 2 months now. The problem I am faced with currently is differing fits and gaps between the passenger side and drivers side door to fender. I am just rying to figure out which side is correct. Thanks for your remarks.
  8. I am trying to figure out the correct Door to Fender and Hood to Door gaps. Could some of you 53 owners post a picture or two of this area of your car? Appreciate any help.
  9. Thanks for all the responses. Now that I know it was a Buick dealer I guess I will have the script replated and put it back on the car. It's neat to know where the car originated from, I wonder if I could find out who the original owner was. Thanks again.
  10. Hard to believe. 97 Views and not one reply Note the script on the trunk lid, has anyone heard of this dealer?
  11. Is anyone familiar with a Buick dealer in Cohoes,NY by the name of Dunning ? Any history?
  12. Hi Marty, There is one on Ebay now. Search for 1953 Buick and you will see it there.
  13. I have owned three 53 Skylarks, all of which have had the EZEye tinted glass with the Shade bar across the top of the windshield. The first was an all original car which I purchased from the original owner and had the LOF windshield. I busted the windshield removing it during the resto. (12 years ago) and searched for months before finding a replacement. The replacement also was EZEye glass with the shadebar across the top. Replacements seem to be easier to come by today.
  14. I have used Lebron Bonney for several of my projects and have been extremely satisfied with the work they do, the materials they provide and how they conduct business. I have done a 53 Skylark with them in the past and I am currently doing another and have every intention of using them again. I send my seat springs to them and have them install the covers which works great. I am just a hobbyist and have found their kits easy and enjoyable to install. Attached picture is of my first 53 Skylark which they supplied the kit for.
  15. The dust covers on my Tie Rod and Pitman Arm are toast. Does anyone know if they are reproduced and is there a seal of some sort under these covers to keep the grease from oozing out? Thanks for the help.
