  1. I have a chance to get a 1955 Chrysler New Yorker engine & transmission in order to have a spare but would it bolt up the same way in my 1954 New Yorker? Any differrences?
  2. Thanks Carl. Good days and some not so good.
  3. thanks joe.. Everything in the light department works on my car. The Latch handles don't lock down. They stay loose. I'll have to get back to it and look a little closer for just why it isn't tight.
  4. This is a picture of my tail gate support and locking meck.. I'm missing a small bolt or something next to the large bolt where the locking handle pivots. What type of small bolt or fixed item should be in this .. The previous owner's had a loose small bolt just stuck in it so the handle would do it's job.. I want what is right. Anyone have the answer?
  5. I would like to see a picture of the motor from both sides.
  6. So many side line experts with a empty wallet or too tight to buy.
  7. I was given a vin number for a 54 I'm looking at. Can anyone give me the read-out? K82A5639
  8. still working on getting it. I'll let you know when I know more.. thanks
  9. time for a bump then I will delete ad
  10. Thanks for all the input. I'm considering to purchase a 1954 star chief but I just like to more about the early 50's Pontiac's.. I'm not quite comfortable with the inline 8's flat head's and their durability. I'm use to Buicks.
  11. What automatic transmission was used in a 1954 Pontiac Star Chief. After the fire in 1953 they used Chevrolet automatic's but when did they go back to their own or did they just continue using the Chevrolet until the V8's came out.
  12. Larry, I notice your vintage Buick line up. Impressive.. Me and my father mostly leaned toward Buick's. The oldest I had was a 1909 Roadster. The rarest was a 1935 96C .. That is now all in the past but we had fun. Buick's was always a dependable vehicle.
  13. Bottom price: $18,000 If you want one of the best original's of the ROARING 1920's ERA. My 1928 Buick Mater Town Brougham. Had several offers of trade-ins but I don't need projects now at my age and physical condition.. The history of this car is unique. I have documentation and names of people that knew the car. This car wasn't sold when it was new but finally got into a private owner's hands about 13 years ago. I've had it now for 3 + years. NO rust or wood rot. Original Factory interior nor rips or tares, original top, Original Body paint but is thin in areas. Big Master Six engine was professionally rebuilt at a cost of $5K. So Much much more ... Title, insurance and license is in my name. Come and see it . I'm located in Southern IL.. Call me at 618 889 6855... No Texting..
