  4. I have owned this car for 10 years and it is time for a new owner to finish. the interior is mostly done except for the wood. New headliner, carpet, sun visors from Clarks. The front seats, dash and packing tray have been redone. It is a rust free body with several small dents but nothing major. It has a new rear bumper that was replaced with someone hit in rear quarter. Exhaust, brakes, driveline and power steering gear have been gone through. The engine and trans do not leak and have been painted blue and rumored to have been rebuilt. The car is in Nampa Idaho and listed on Craiglist for 10000 which is fair and firm. It has dual fours with correct air cleaner and valve covers. I have correct carb and manifold and air cleaner. Call for details 208 861 0845 Bob http://boise.craigslist.org/cto/5489895567.html

  6. The covers I bought at the Portland Swap meet had three one inch bolts and nuts in the mounting holes. When I started looking to mount them I realized that I only had one stud. The studs were either broken off or cut off. I had never seen any other way of attaching the covers but thought I would ask. I just replaced the plate on the bottom of my intake manifold and the old girl is sure quiet. thanks, Bob
  7. Did the early buick v8's use any other mounting method other than the studs on the heads. I finally found some covers only to find thats three of the of my studs are missing. They could be available for sale. thanks Bob
