  1. First I hope this doesn't post seven times...anyway brought the right side to a local chrome guy today,he says that when he strips it,the pits will reduce almost flush. I hope so,anyway he says the Black and grey around the outside is paint. Will try and match that when I get it back. This guy comes recommmended,he says that when I paint it will look fine. Will know by mid August. Mark Lewis BCA#41402 65&70 Wildcats
  2. I picked up a NOS left side grille for my 70 Wildcat over the winter. No luck finding the right side,so I was thinking about having the old right side restored. The question I have is this. On the NOS grille there is a flat Black finish on the top of the horizontal sections. Is this paint or some other type of finish. Im bringing the grille and the NOS piece to a chrome shop next week for their opinion. Thanks. Mark Lewis BCA#41402 65&70 Wildcats

  8. Other than that issue,how do you like that 77. There is a 77 Limited two door in my area that is for sale,50,000 miles,seller says it was his mother in laws. He got it at 27k and drove it until it hit 50,been sitting for a year,he sent me a few pictures....don't really have the room,girlfriend has given me the double secret probation we don't have enough room in the driveway,you don't need another Buick,you would be in big trouble look,but somehow am interested,Black over Red. Looks like the paint is a bit faded on the hood,he says has a few small rust areas starting on one of the rockers..
  9. Was talking with my friend Charlie yesterday(65 Wildcat) and he told me there is a standard shift 70 Wildcat in our area,it needs restoration but is complete. The owner told him it had some connection to the Rockefeller family. Supposedly been sitting in a garage for awhile,Charlie saw it some time ago and thinks it maybe a convertible.

  10. I'm sorry to hear that,he treated me well. Mark Lewis BCA#41402 65&70 Wildcats
  11. The heater core could be handled by your local radiator shop,I had no problem there,the scripts show up on e-bay frequently,Buick Farm also would be a possibility. The Tri-shield on the front bumper is scarce and when you find one expect for pay over $500.00. Jim Schilf who posts on this forum makes a nice polycarbonate reproduction which I have on my car. Good luck with it. Mark Lewis BCA#41402 65&70 Wildcats.
  12. Wanted to buy NOS right side grille for 70 Wildcat. Thanks in advance. Mark Lewis BCA#41402 65&70 Wildcats.
  13. Good luck on that,will really be something when it's finished. Just to show you what a small world it is.....I met a gentleman last summer at a gas station I hang out at. He's a parts salesman,really a Ford guy,but we got to talking and he told me that he had picked up a 64 Wildcat convertible but really didn't drive it much,said his sons weren't into it etc. I think he was thinking of selling it but hadn't made up his mind. Hadn't seen him since. So yesterday for some reason I thought of him and was talking to a friend about him and the car. Went to get gas and there he was on a sales c
  14. Been with BCA for a little over a year. Brought my 70 Wildcat to the Northeast Regional on Saturday. First time I had done something like that. Registered the car for display. Found a nice shade tree,put my chair under it,had a nice lunch,ventured out several times to look at all the great Buicks,took alot of pictures,talked to quite a few people and thought it was just about the best way to spend a nice summer day. Car ran great,all 160 miles of the trip. I've been involved in other hobbys and I just do what interests me while respecting that others may have different areas that interes
  15. Far as I know it's still there. Spoke with the owner in early July. Too much for me right now. I had left you a voice mail at that time. If your interested I'll call him. Mark Lewis BCA#41402
