  1. I live near LaBaron Bonney so took my old shades down to them and had new ones made. Did a great job, They are listed in their catalog. good Luck
  2. Rick, We talked the other day on this. My 26 Model 27 has the same gauge as shown. But my 27 Model 27 that was made into a Woodie Wagon in 1927 has a completely different type of gauge as it is up under the Woodie body. sorry I couldn't help you out. I have used Bob's Speedometers for my gauges. good Luck Steve Falmouth, me
  3. I just restored a 27 Buick model 27-27 that was made into a woodie wagon in 1927. I couldn't find the flat bars so bought 31 Model A stainless steel bumpers. Same as my 26-27 Buick with weed Bumpers. They are stainless steel and about 2" shorter than the weed bumpers. if you want I can e-mail pictures. I was lucky to find weed brackets on E-Bay. I also had a friend make the back flat bar at his welding shop. Good Luck
  4. I have a lot of 26 Buick Standard clutch parts,I don't know if some might be the same. what exactly are you looking for? Steve Smith Falmouth, Me
  5. I had both my 26 and 27 standrad clutch rebuilt by Fort Wayne Clutch in Fort Wayne, IN. They did a super job. Steve Falmouth, Me
  6. I'm looking at a EZ-ON top for my 48 Ford Conv. Do they have the same seam as the orginial top? Does anyone have a picture of their top. Have they ever leaked especially in seams? Thanks for any help
  7. Has anyone bought EZ On auto tops? I need to get a new top for my 48 Ford Conv. thanks
  8. I need an exhaust manifold for my 1927 Buick Standard. Just as I drove into South Bend Meet it cracked in half. Thanks for any help.
  9. I'm finally rewiring my 27 Buick woodie. I took the headlights apart 3 years ago and lost the screws that hood the headlight rim onto body. The large screw at bottom. Where Can I find some? Seems to be a srange thread. Thanks for any Help
  10. Tinindian , How did you fit an alternator on your Buick? I only drive maybe 30 miles at night would the gen hold up for that distance with 50/32 Bulbs? Thanks for your help. Steve UOTE=Tinindian;1179559]The top line on this link has 50/32 cp bulbs. They should fit perfectly if your present bulbs are 1000. My car originally had 21/21 cp, I changed them to 32/21 cp which I found better and then I found the 50/32 bulbs. They made a fantastic difference for night driving. However since I was driving 60 to 100 miles at night my old three brush generator wouldn't keep the battery charged so I changed to a 6 volt alternator. Automotive HeadLight Bulbs and Bulb Sockets
  11. I'm rewiring the headlights on my 27 Buick woodie. The shop manual calls for 21 c. p. on both filaments. The bulbs in car are Mazda 1000 32 x 32 c.p. 6-8volt. There doesn't seem to be any difference on high or low beam. Should I use the 32 C. P. or get some 21 C. P. // Thanks for any help.
  12. I have flipped the intake on both my 26 Standard and my 27 Standard Woodie Wagon and used a one barrel Stromberg Carb. They both run super. never even have to use the choke. I used an electric fuel pump by tank and a pressure reg on the firewall. But not be stock but sure runs nice. Good Luck =FLYER15015;1171751]Though I have installed several Jag S.U.'s on old Harly's, I have to go with Mark on this one. When you flip the manifold, there are several GM carbs at your disposal, OR you could try a Stromberg 94 or 97 if you really want to "get out there", but a carter or rochester is probably your best bet, subject to the mounting bolt pattern.

  13. I'm looking for the metal plugs that go in hole on the runningboard apron on my 26 Buick. The hole is 1 3/4" I could use three, two for apron and one to fill hole in firewall where exhaust manifold heater goes through. Restoration Specialties used to carry them but not any more. Thanks for any help.
  14. I'm getting to have my 27 Buick Woodie painted. It is Black and Blue. What color to paint back of hood and should it be gloss, semi-gloss or flat. Also what color to paint back of fenders, and gloss, semi-gloss or falt? Thanks for any help
  15. A bunch of us guys from Maine are going to the Stowe, Vt car show and plan on going to Burington,Vt and cross the lake on Monday the 12th of August. Are there any cruise-ins in that area either that Monday or Tuesday. Thanks
  16. I'm putting my clutch back together on the 26 Buick Standard. Should I use any type of grease on input shaft of trans., the flywheel hub or on the teeth on both out side and inside of clutch discs?? It seems real dry. thanks for any help.
  17. I'm looking for a private secured parking lot in South Bend for a few days before the Buick Meet. we have two trailers which will be coming from Maine. We are going to a meet in Ohio the weekend before and would like to park two trailers with anitque buicks for time while we sightsee in the area. We don't want to have to haul the trailers around the country. Thanks for any Help. Steve Smith Falmouth, Me 207-939-5469
  18. Leif, I had what I figured was the original floor mat which was rubber. I don't know what was under the metal plates around brake-clutch, gas pedal and shift lever. There was a piece of foam rubber type material around gas pedal rod. This is a 27 Buick Standard made into a Woodie Wagon in 1927. Thanks Steve he old orginal
  19. What would be a good material to use around the brake and clutch pedals ?? I have made a new rubber floor mat but still have openings around the petals. Thanks for any help
  20. I replaced muffler on my 27 Buick standard from Waldrens for $100, was too loud, I bought one Advance Auto for around $35-40 sounded just like the old one. If your muffler is like a 27 Buick I'll' get part number from Advance Aauto. Steve [ QUOTE=bigvic;1114345]I have the original muffler from my car. the outside metal was shot so I cut it off and was surprised how good the internal baffles looked. Has any tried to save these by ceramic coating or hot dip galvanizing? If this worked I would recover with a new outer skin. Looking for that original sound....
  21. I used real dry pine boards for my running boards. I bought mat material from Bob's for both my 26 sedan and 27 Woodie. It is very poor quality, I had to junk half of it. I would like to find some good material myself for the 27 Woodie.
  22. To Barney, I have a 1927 Buick woodie wagon which was made in 1927 out of a Model 27-27 Standrard four door sedan. Can you get a custom made cover by measurements?? Thanks for any help. Steve
  23. i'm looking for a tailpipe deflector for my 27 Buick woodie. Right now the exhaust comes back in car with rear side curtain rolled up. What would be correct for a car in middle 20"s ?? thanks for any help
