  1. You all have missed your chance. This Buick is no longer for sale. Bill Madden
  2. I wouldn't buy anything from someone as dirty as that....specially since I know how dirty your mind is!
  3. Pretty rare item. I presume you are talking about the seat skirt.... Some advice.. you can always spray paint color you need. It is a vinyl spray paint in a can. I have seen them on eBay, but not too often. Put your need on this forum in Parts for sale or buy.
  4. Thanks Joe. Be glad to help with any advice. Bill
  5. I know my eye sight is bad, but that ain't taller. My threats must have scared you, huh Tim. BEAUTIFUL CAR and a beautiful restoration job!! Bill
  6. Almost makes me cry to review this and read the comments. I am proud of the end result, but I still can't believe I was largely responsible. I never want to take full credit though because I had so much help and was also lucky to pick the right people to do the 'heavy lifting', such as Bob Richter for media blasting and primer, Jack White, Jack White Restorations, for alignment, painting, etc., Howard McKee for all soft parts like top, interior, trunk, and Harold Jenkins' Harold's Automotive for engine and tranny rebuild. These people have become friends, but my personal friends such as Tim Brown, Dick Ponsi, and Dick Sweeney, and Brian Essam will always deserve being the ones who compensated for my becoming almost an invalid at the end. Love my Buick, and the people who made it possible!!!file:///Users/Owner/Desktop/DSC_0236.jpgfile:///Users/Owner/Desktop/DSC_0236.jpg
  7. I have a pair of PS hoses which are perfect and pretty much new, but are no where close to looking original. All fittings hook up perfectly but are of new design. One of them have the step-down feature as it should, Hoses are BRIGHT BLUE. I used them for about 25 miles. Shipping and price ? Bill Madden
  8. You do know I am Irish..... Bill
  9. You know I have a '53 Super convertible. I am the second owner and restorer. If it were me, I would not be so convinced there ever was under hood insulation in a '53. From the factory that is...... Bill
  10. Everyone sh'd congratulate Tim, Buickconvert53, for getting that RM running again. Getting closer to paint and interior. I know I will be jealous that there will be another Osage Cream, or creme, convertible alive I will just be the first to point at each little flaw......
  11. "they won't go and they really are not quick enough to get ruined by a teen messing with the car." I would like to beg your pardon..... If you have a buddy who has a '53 Olds 98 Holiday you get really tired of not being able to keep up. So, put it in Neutral, rev it up tight, whip the shifter to Park. Darn, it only works a few times and then guess what.... And that's the end of my story of my first '53 Buick Super convertible.
  12. Harold's Automotive in La Mesa, CA rebuilt my engine and Dynaflow. Find him on the web. I highly recommend him. He has done Buicks for many years. 1-619 463-0387. Bill
  13. I have two pretty important questions..... #1 Will I outlive this thread??? #2 Why does no one know a Buick Dynaflow is supposed to leak. You guys all have too much time on your hands.
  14. Still waiting for someone to come up with an excellent Power Steering horn button............. STILL NEED A NEAR PERFECT POWER STEERING HORN BUTTON.
  15. Did you ever call this number????
  16. I still need a 'Power Steering' horn button which is commiserate with the quality of my convertible. No crazing or other defect. I'll be waiting...... Bill
  17. call 52O - 51O - 4284 $350 Bill
  18. Or you can click over to 'Me and my Buick' and look at my Super.....
