  1. Ah, and it is red too. Welcome to the greatest of the 50s. Dan in Colorado
  2. Not sure, but if I remember, there was a mid-year that required cooling features, It may have also been more output.
  3. The pulleys for the water pump are missing. They are different than the '57 in that the '58 A/C job had a much heavier water pump bearing and is about 1/2 inch longer to accommodate the double drive belt design. Possibly the '59 pulleys may interchange. Attached photos are of a '57. Your photo appears to me to be a correct factory job.
  4. Adam: As far as the battery is concerned, I have a reproduction Delco battery (attached photos)sans electrolite which I am willing to make available to you. Also I have a fan clutch that was NOS one thousand miles back. Dan (Caballero2)
  5. If you attended this meet, thank you for being counted among the great turnout. The weather was hot in the upper 90s but the dealer showroom was well attended and air conditioned. Otherwise a beautiful day in Loveland, Colorado.

  6. Actually, the meet was held in Loveland, CO. But the link below of photos do indicate what a beautiful day in Colorado was like. click on the large thumbnail on the top-left and use the right & left arrows.

  7. Today's temperature is 92 degrees now. Temperature on the highway is dead center on the 'N'.
  8. Installed a thermal lock-up clutch on my Roadmaster today. I will test it before the Saturday Club Show. Temps this week will be in the lower 90s.
  9. Aslo under Haulin' Buicks.
  10. I have seen origional cars with Black, Tangerine, Blue, and Green. It is my understanding that the tangerine was part of the optional tangerine wheels, and on red bodied cars.
  11. I used DuPont 35252A, Car: Rover, code 204, Color Pimento
  12. Westbounders from the Buick National are welcome. June 29th at King Buick, Loveland, Colordo. Location: at the intersection of I-25 & Crossroads Blvd. Colorado and Wyoming have never been more beautiful, peaks in both states are snow capped and the valleys are like green meadows.

  14. Could it be? "keep your mitts off my '65 Riv, or I will light up your eyes like they were neon".
