  1. I pulled this motor and transmission (3 speed manual) from the truck and am going back in with a different motor. This motor ran and drove prior to pulling it. It will need a new fuel pump and the carb probably deserves a rebuilt, but it is all there, all original. The linkage for the transmission was a bit sloppy and could do with some new bushings. I'd like to get $400 for the pair but am negotiable. It would probably need to be picked up and I'm in Spring TX, just north of Houston. I could probably crate it for shipping, but would have to charge for those materials. For fastest response, use my email in my profile as it comes to my phone. If you answer through this thread or pm, it may take a few days for a response.
  2. The car was sold that this came from and it was a 42 Plymouth sedan. I'm unable to tell if this is an original Fulton visor or an aftermarket visor. It's not the prettiest at this time with a lot of paint loss. There are many dings, but almost all of them on flat surfaces for an easy bump out. All mounting brackets are intact and screw holes are there (not torn out). I'd like to get $250 for this but am negotiable. It just needs a good home and with a bit of bump work and some paint, it will be as good as new. It is aluminum, so light and though large, shipping should not be extravagant. Fastest response is via my email in my profile. It comes to my phone. If you respond here or in pm, it may take a few days for a response as I come here only a couple of times a week.
  3. I have several usable items for a 71/72 cutlass supreme for sale. These were parts that came off of a parts car that is now gone, but I stripped it before I scrapped it. Two doors (both sides) with glass. Neither door has visible rust nor bubbles though the driver door has some paint starring which may be bondo beneath. $100 each plus shipping Two front fenders, both have rust at the rear mounting. They are in good condition besides this but will need repair. $25 each plus shipping Hood, no rust. It is usable as is, but to be excellent there will be quite a bit of work to be done. It looks like someone tapped on it with a ball pean hammer (probably a hail storm) and there are many indentations. These are not severe but became obvious when I used a sanding board on the hood. $100 plus shipping. Complete 350/350 combination, including 2bbl carb. Complete motor and transmission still together. I drove this immediately before pulling the motor. It smokes and will need a rebuild. $300. Front and rear bumpers complete. Both are in good shape though the plastic grill is snapped in half on the front bumper. No obvious bends or dings. $100 each plus shipping. I have some other, less obvious parts from this car so if there's something you are looking for, email me. I have most of the engine bay parts and pieces and trim. Prices are all negotiable. I'm moving out of my shop and I'd rather sell this stuff than take it to the scrap yard. Fastest response will be via my email listed in my profile. I come here once or twice a week, so if you question in the post or pm me, it may be a bit for a response.
  4. Thanks to the forum, the 70 Rivi that I had has gone to a new owner who, I hope, will return her to her former glory. I have the following parts for a 70 Riviera that remain from a parts car Front fenders (both sides) - one side has a small bit of rust at the mounting bracket but very usuable condition. ($100 each plus shipping) One set of skirts - both have some rust but again, an easy enough repair ($50 plus shipping) Front bucket seats, no rips though they do need a good cleaning. these are white. $100 plus shipping Rear seat, white, speaker intact, again needs a good cleaning but very usable. $75 plus shipping Center console with shifter, whole mechanism. White and should be recovered (vinyl). $100 plus shipping Rear window glass, very good condition, no cracks and I'll throw in the trim to go along with it if you need it. $50 plus shipping Two front spear (both sides), these are chrome and unbroken with all the mounting tabs intact. $100 plus shipping Excellent hood with the front trim strip, no rust, white. $50 plus shipping. Low price as the shipping will probably be high. Don't like the price? Make me an offer. I'm even open to trades for interesting stuff. I'd really like to sell this to avoid having to trash/scrap it and some of this stuff isn't found everyday anymore. I do have some other odds and ends from this car. Fastest response will be from my email, you can find it in my profile. I won't put it here due to the normal hazards of listing emails on forums.
  5. Yeah, the title is a bit wrong. Due to recent divorce and the finances associated with that, I'm being forced to liquidate my shop. As such, I have the following cars for sale. 1960 Chevrolet 2 door post - $600.00 plenty of rust, running driving car with title. 1942 Plymouth 4 door sedan - $500.00 no title, very solid with few, if any, body perforations. Motor and tranny are there and it is said to run (I've never tried it). no interior but a rare car due to the start of WWII. 1970 Buick Riviera - $750 was a grandmothers car who should have quit driving sooner. Some dents and dings but I have another door to replace the damaged one. Currently without glass front and rear (though I have them). Car runs and drives and is titled. Pictures can be seen at www.imagodeoclassics.com under the pictures tab If you are interested in any of them, let me know through PM and I'll provide my contact info. Pictures are available for all of them.
  6. New in box, NAPA brand - $25.00 plus shipping
  7. I have the following original Plymouth parts for sale. These came to me with the car but there was no block or transmission or it would have been restored. intake manifold and carb - these are still together, carb moves - $40 flywheel - $5 starter - some surface rust and has seen better days - $10 voltage regulator -don't know if it works or not - $5 I have the pistons and rods if you are interested, we can talk price (cheap) but the shipping will probably hurt. Shipping is additional based on your prefered vendor and location. Send me a PM with your zip and I'll quote you. JD
  8. I bought a 70 Rivi to use for parts for another that I'm restoring but it turned out to be of little help as the same rusty parts existed on both cars. I have lots of parts and pieces that I would like to sell. Front fenders are good, though one has some small (very small) amount of rust. Good doors. The easiest means is if you just PM me with your needs/wants and I let you know if I have it or not. You will be very happy with the pricing as I'm just trying to move some of these parts to free up space (for other cars parts).<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
  9. I bought a 72 cutlass supreme as a parts car for another identical car. It was rusted badly and had lots of shabby patch work, however, the drivetrain was fine. Stock 350 motor and 350( or TH400) transmission complete, still bolted together. Includes all brackets as from the factory on the motor. This is a 2 BBL motor, not the 4bbl. I do not have the numbers off of it with me but will edit this message tomorrow to include those. Motor did run and drive, transmission shifted very well when it was pulled. The motor, however, will need to be rebuilt as it smoked. Price $600. Buyer handles all shipping arrangements though I can do what I can to help get it crated/palleted for shipment.
  10. I'm making one last attempt to sell this vehicle whole before I part it out. As the title reads, 66 Chrysler 300 2 door. The major problem with the car is that the frame is rusted at the transmission cross member on the drivers side. This is a small problem if you have access to replacement frame and/or parts. There is no motor or transmission. I purchased it with each, but the motor had a bad rod bearing. I have since pulled the motor and disassembled it awaiting funds for a rebuild (that I'll be using in a Plymouth coupe). There is also rust, small bubbling in rear quarters. The most outstanding part of this vehicle is the interior. With the exception of tears on the drivers and passenger front seats, the interior looks to be nearly new. Door panels are great. Rear seat is great. All dash, steering wheel components are great. I'm looking to get $1200 for the car as is. I am willing to negotiate somewhat though I am confident I can part it for much more than that. I priced the replacement frame parts last year at approximately $500 as a kit, but this car is far down on the list of restorations as I have 13 cars in the shop now. So rather than watching it deteriorate further, I wanted to give someone the opportunity to own this beauty. I do have a title for the car. More pictures can be seen at www.holmesautorestorations.com/sale.html The hood is back on the car now (not on in pictures).
  11. I had no keys but the original keycode, took it to the locksmith and he looked up the code and cut the keys. $30.00 and 15 minutes. This was on a 53 Pontiac.
  12. I use two different brands, but the same formula as POR-15. 1. Degrease the area with a good degreaser. Failure to do this will result in peeling. 2. Knock off the surface rust/scale with a wire wheel. 3. At this point, I use a rust converter, particularly, Picklex. I prefer this because it doesn't need water after application. Others require water then full dry. 4. POR-15 or the like over the whole thing. As part of the original post, you stated POR-15 etches the surface. PLease note that it does NOT etch the surface. A smooth surface needs to be roughened with at least a scotchbrite first for more tooth. Once again, metal needs to be completely clean prior to application for effective use.
  13. check ebay, there's a guy advertising on there that is making pans for the 54
  14. check your PM's, I'll know more this weekend. Didn't find a picture and don't remember if I kept that side. All the stuff's stored upstairs in my shop so I'll know either this afternoon or tomorrow.
  15. I've got one, I'll find the pictures and email to you.
