  1. Sorry to revive such an old post - John, did you ever sell these wheels? Email address listed up top no longer works. Thanks! -Derek
  2. Although these guys don't specifically list what you are looking for, it's worth contacting them. They had an engine harness for a slightly different '73 than mine and at my request customized it for an internal voltage regulator alternator and electric choke. It's the little things like that which make a company worth going back to. I was very impressed with the quality and maybe they can help you out. I'm not sure if they will fab stuff up from scratch without an original example, but give them a call anyway. You never know what it might lead to.

  3. I would need to see pictures of the dolly rig. Not sure how I would get this onto my trailer, I just have ramps. I could possibly use something like an engine crane (I can bring my own 2 ton) to lift the nose of the car up onto the trailer, along with my trailer's winch to pull the car forward, then pull the rear wheels up on the ramps like normal.
  4. Hi, I would definitely consider it, I was talking to someone recently about bringing a car from mid-NH to Philly, that would bring me close to central Jersey. The problem is that I have an empty trip home and would have to charge pretty much double the one-way cost to both of you. If you give me approximate milage of the trip I'll figure out how much I would charge you. -Derek
  5. I have a good truck and a strong dual axle open flatbed. I can move my '73 Buick LeSabre with it no problems, so chances are good it will hold whatever you have as long as it rolls... It does have low side rails, so some widths are an issue (I couldn't fit a jacked up pickup with wide swamper tires). I live just north of Boston. Drop me a line if you need a hand moving something around, I'll see if I can help out. Private, not commercial.

  7. Hi all, I have a '73 LeSabre sedan. I am trying to find some various sheetmetal, I don't really care if it's new or old. I need the floor pan underneath the rear seat (pass. side), trunk floor, rear quarters. I checked a few places I thought would have it but apparently the big Buicks are the forgotten ones when it comes to metalwork. I'm sure I could make stuff out of flat sheetmetal stock, but I'd love to find the right stuff if it's available. I am an amateur when it comes to bodywork, I am taking a good evening class at a local voc tech school which has unlimited access to their bodyshop with welding equipment, full paint booth, etc. I have done some minor body repairs and a lot of paint work, but for this level of rust repair I'm pretty green at it. If anyone has some tips on sourcing the metal I need, and/or a nice guide on rust repair, I'd love to see any help you have to offer. Thanks, -Derek Cunningham
  8. Hello all, I am a long time buick nut, and relatively new to this forum (although I signed up years ago through the ROA). I don't have a Riv anymore, but I do finally have my '73 LeSabre back on the road. It's been 11 long years since I drove it last. Now it's got a tired 455 (still better than it's old 350) and I need a few parts to finish it off. Hopefully this forum can help me find what I need!!! -Derek <a href=" " title="Untitled by deekster_caddy, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm7.staticflickr.com/6233/6351764089_3c2d263897.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt=""></a>
