  1. Hey hey.. here is a short video I took of my 1949 Buick Roadmaster 4door that I have recently purchased about a month ago. I am currently trying to bring her up back to par engine/electrical-wise.. I am planning on keeping this vehicle stock, and true to form (no modern "updates.")... I'm sure some of you have been following my madness through my posts. This video was shot right after I had cleaned all my ground connections within the engine area, and recharged my battery. Just a little something fun to watch! Here is the link to YouTube.. 1949 Buick Roadmaster - YouTube Jerry 1949 Buick Roadmaster 4 Door
  2. :)Hello! I have posted some threads in the past about my 49 Chrysler, and I am happy to say that I have successfully been able to tear down and re-build the original 251 Flathead straight 6. Unfortunately, however, now that everything is reassembled, I am not getting any spark to the plugs. I pulled the distrubutor cap and checked the points while turning them over, and I am not seeing spark there. I installed a new ignition coil, still nothing. I also ran all new leads to the coil and distributor according to the original shop manual. Any ideas?:confused: Thanks everybody in advance!
  3. I think I may have figured out my clock problem on my '49 roadmaster.. While looking under my dashboard and gazing at all of my connections, I noticed that on the back of my clock there is a little "stud" sticking out, and under it written GRN. I'm assuming this is the ground location. If it is, then I am missing a wire and a ground connection. What could I use to ground this clock, and where do I ground it to? I am pretty sure I have a New Haven clock in my vehicle.. Any help is appreciated! I don't see any info on the ground location in my manual. Jerry 1949 Roadmaster
  4. Hello. Been reading for the past few months a whole lot about classic Buicks on this site.. I just recently (last saturday) purchased my first car (I've only owned trucks my whole life), and my first car is a 1949 Buick Roadmaster (4 Door, Black exterior)!! I was hoping that perhaps someone on this site may have history about my vehicle.. I purchased my Buick from a consignment dealer in San Juan Capistrano California. Apparently the owner stated that he bought the vehicle about 3 years ago from the original owner in the mid-west. Pretty clean car, just need some minor work. I am in love with my Buick and I want to find out anything I can about it's past! My vin on the door pillar is 55259761 (the "1" looks more like the letter "I" though). Fisher plate states style# 49-4769, Body# BW3528, Trim# 70, Paint# 01 (not sure about this paint number since my vehicle is black and on all the paint codes for '49, I don't see black listed).. there is also the letters "acc" under the paint#. My dashboard is a two-tone dark green/greyish color (I thought the dash colors didn't really make sense with the Black exterior. Well, if anyone knew this car or it's owner before, do tell! Currently needing to replace heater, vent/heater hoses, and repair my Sonamatic! Planning on restoring it to it's original glory!
  5. Anyone out there know how to get a 1949 clock and Sonamatic Am Radio in working order? I noticed on the back of my clock that a prior owner has removed the wire from it's port. Not sure why. I located a lone wire and assumed it was for the clock so I plugged it in.. clock still doesn't work. Fuses are all good on the fuse panel- I replaced them. The light for the clock is working.. all my dash lights work. As far as the radio goes, the only thing I can think of is perhaps there is a bad tube or tubes since it doesn't even turn on.. I would be happy if I can get the clock and radio to work. Jerry 1949 Buick Roadmaster 4 Door
  6. Dumb question but I need to know where to fill/add oil into my '49 roadmaster engine.. I also need to know where to fill/add transmission fluid. My manual says the transmission fluid dipstick is located under the floor mat of the front passenger area.. I don't want to rip up anything. I also found a dipstick located in front of the passenger firewall (could this be for the transmission fluid??), and it is bone dry. Any help is very appreciated! Jerry
  7. I have been spraying the shaft on my manifold heat valve for two days with PB Blaster to "unfreeze" it, tapping it with a hammer, and still no luck. Here's my dilemma now.. Last night I broke off the "weight" end of the heat valve near the retractable spring by my constant attempts at freeing up the frozen shaft.. The square object/weight is now going to be permanently frozen. It is stuck pointing near (sitting right next to) the manifold.. My question is, will this be a major problem for my engine?? I can not find a manifold heat valve to purchase anywhere for replacement. Can this valve be bypassed? Is mine stuck in the "BAD" position??? Since I live in Southern California, the lowest temps we get are usually only in the low 40's. I am hoping to hear back from somebody to help ease my worries! Jerry 1949 Roadmaster

  11. Hello! I have a 1949 Chrysler Windsor with the original flathead 6 and fluid drive transmission. Unfortunately, the engine is toasted, and even with the head off, I cannot get it to turn over. I was wondering if anybody knew of a way to mount up a later model v8 to the original transmission. Even some ideas as to what to do in order to get the original engine turned over would be appreciated! Thanks a lot!
  12. I'm having a hard time figuring out how to remove the trunk handle off of a 49 Chrysler. It has a single post that goes through the trunk bracket and then through the trunk lid. It looks like there is a solid black ring and then some type of cap on the post. Neither one will budge. Ideas?
  13. Does anyone know if Hudson offered a set list of finishes for their wheels in 1949? I've checked all the online sales material and color charts but there is no mention of the available colors for wheels. Thanks!
  14. Hello, I am trying to sell a 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe. It has 77k. It is green with a white interior and was in pristine condition needing only a starter until about 3 1/2 years ago when it was left in the grass to rot away. The moister and mice have caused a lot of damage to the interior upholstery and the exterior is rusting. It has all original parts and the glass is in good shape. Here is the link to the website where I am trying to sell it for $1500: Classic Cars For Sale - Plymouth : 1949 Plymouth Special DeLuxe I don't know anything about these old cars (I'm selling this for a friend who just wants it out of her yard) and am clueless as to what I should expect to sell it for. Any suggestions? Thanks, Eric
