  1. I have a couple 36 transmissions but not sure how to tell the special from the Century. If you can help with that I may be able to help you. Tony tdiamantine@comcast.net
  2. Thanks for the replys so far. I have a 54 special and the radiator is smaller by 5". The 55 Century is about 22 1/2" wide and my 54 special is about 17 1/2" wide. I sent progoofoff an e-mail about his and I can only hope it is good. otherwise I'm still looking for one. Thanks everyone! Tony
  3. Anyone have any idea where to find a radiator for my 55 Century? I can't find one. Also need someone to rebuild or exchange the rear shocks. Thanks! Tony
  4. This is a 1937 Buick nose. It is dent free and still holds the radiator,splash pan at the bottom and support rods.This must be picked up in the San francisco bay area or I can deliver it to the Turlock Swap meet this weekend Jan 27th. $150 Call Tony 707-793-9929 or Cell 510-410-3039
  5. Mark, I checked the hoses and the spring inside is present and I have played with the timing without much luck. I'm just lost. Thank you! Tony
  6. My 36 Buick coupe is over heating but it is very gradual. I drove it about 60 miles south of here and it starts out at about 170 deg and very slowly creeps up. at about 25 miles it's up to about 190 then at about 50 or so miles it at about 205. If you get off the highway it will shoot way up to 220 or higher unless you keep the RPMs up to keep the fan going fast enough to keep it cooler. I have an after market gauge on it to keep track of the problem. Then she likes to boil over when you shut her down. On the other hand, I can run around town even jump on the highway for 10 miles and not have
  7. Hey Thanks Dave for the info on the Wheel Resto and Ron for the info on the tires. I'm going to Powdercoat and restripe my wheels so I think I will run the redials but I was thinking of using the Coker tire because they promise to look like the original tire. How does the B.F. Goodrich look? Ron your car looks great thanks for the photo. Tony
  8. As some of you know I have been looking for a 36 Buick Coupe for a very long time. At last I found one. I'm looking for a few things and need some help. First off, I have nice extra banjo wheel that I'd like to have restored. The one on the car has 2 broken spokes. Who do I call to restore my wheel? The car has a working radio but I'd like to have it serviced and I need the correct knobs for the radio.Any help would be much appreciated. I also would like to get the instrument cover and glove box tiger striped (Wood grained). Anyone still doing this? Last, the car has a almost new set of WWW bi

  11. Looking for a 1936 buick. Will look at any model in good running condition. Would consider a solid long time stored non running. NO RUST (Would really like a 2 door coupe). Thanks! Tony tdiamantine@comcast.net
  12. E-Bay Scam crew did there job and he is no longer listed as a seller. ( For now )
  13. Well MrEarl, I have a running 54 special parts car with 3 on the tree and I'm sure you know what a pain the old Dynaflo can be. So I thought if I found a good Special I could put that great 3 speed in it and have a fun driver. Do you know if the 264 3 speed will work on the Centurys 322? A 54 Century would be ideal. As far as the Super/Roadmaster I like them both but there's the trans problem again. My first car was a 54 Super and the trans went out then I had a 54 Special I did a full resto on and had the Dynaflo done by a (pro) that lasted 750 miles and had it done by a diffr
  14. Just a friendly note MrEarl. You don't have to bid on a Item to tag it. You can put it on your watch list or write down the E-Bay number and still pull it up a month after the auction it over. P.S. Did you see the nice 54 Super on E-bay? White w/Red and black int. vtwintony
  15. Yes as per an earler post I have 5- 6" and 5- 6 1/2" Buick wires and someone kindly gave me some history on the wheels and said the 6 1/2" was a 53 wheel. you can read what he wrote on a post from last week with my username. I was trying to find out if I can use the 6 1/2" on a 54 or will they give me problems? Thanks again! Tony
