  1. Not mine. Harrison # 3123757 These radiators are hard to come by so I thought I would post this from Craiglist (http://buffalo.craigslist.org/pts/4832192761.html) The sellers name is Ray. Can be reached at: 716-783-1572
  2. Hi there! We have been looking for this part a while now, asked someone and get forwarded to this site. We are currently in search for a new moustache (upper grill bar) for our 1951 Special. We hope we can finally get lucky here, and find this part (after years)! Thanks in advance!
  3. Saw this on Phoenix c-list last week (but not on the Tucson list, and it's in Tucson). Unfortunately I don't recall the price they had listed... Guess they really want to move it. Claims that "all" the trim is there - but not in the photos. Ask them...not mine. http://www.ebay.com/itm/251658732592 (incorrectly listed as a Special, it's a 56R)
  4. I have tried searching the different forums (fori??), as I am sure that this topic has come up before. Unfortunately the search tool is not sophisticated and brings up a lot non-relevant data. So apologies if I am asking something already answered elsewhere. What oil is the best to use in my 1951 Olds 88 rocket V-8, e.g. high-mileage, synthetic vs non-synthetic? I have posed this in the general Technical section as I expect that the make is not important, but the year could have an impact on your answers. Also, are there any additives that I should think about using, e.g. oil stabilizer. I a
  5. As an immigrant, with no history of American cars in my youth I never thought I would get bitten by the bug.... We had just moved back to north of Atlanta, after 14 years in Central Florida. On a road near our house, someone was selling a red late 40's car. turned out to be a resto-mod Dodge 48 or 49. Looked at it but it was noisy (hot rod) and pricey. But then something was itching. Started looking on-line at ATClassics & ClassicCars.com. Found a '50 Plymouth(?) south of Atlanta, but it was more a street rod too (no chrome trim, black bumper and modern engine). Sales guy said easier t
  6. Looking for an 'M' (lost) and 2 'I's (damaged, so less important, could be repaired). I believe that 1952 trunk letters are the same. Can anyone in the community help? Thanks in advance Stefan
  7. Specifically looking for an 'M', with interest in one or two 'I's (I do have 'I's but they have lost one of the mounting pegs)
  8. The interchange book I have isn't so great. I need to invest in one of the "good" ones. But for those of you with a good one, can you tell me if the headliner bows for the 1951 76R (2-door hardtop) will interchange with those from the 1952 Super 2-door hardtop? Same question - for the stainless trim that is visible inside the headliner at each bow? Thanks!
  9. The car did arrive. Nice to have finally found one more or less local. I think this one was about 60 miles up the road, maybe 70. The owner had to come to Tucson for the title, so he just brought the car as well! It was an original Tucson car - spent first 30 years or so around here. The guy I got it from bought it about 30 years ago and had it in Nogales, AZ (Mexican border). He's to the point where he couldn't see getting around to fixing this one up, and his preference is Lincolns, so this Buick needed to go. Given my situation with the other cars, the plan is this will probably be on
  10. With any luck, the car attached to this data plate will be in my garage tomorrow... If so, there will be another "Me & My" thread...
  11. Since I've been delayed a bit on the engine, I'm going back around to another non-functional item: horns. When I first put the battery in, there was power at the horn relay when the horn ring was pressed. The relay itself was bad. I replaced the relay, and now there's not power on the line from the horn ring. The horns will sound when I jumper hot to the small contact on the relay. So the relay & horns are good. Trying to figure out the rest of it. This setup seems to work by providing hot to the relay. Is the wire off the left side of the steering column above the steering box &
  12. Hello everyone! I found this gem on Craigslist this past weekend and just couldn’t pass it up. I’ve always liked the look of the 50’s Buicks and the asking price seemed reasonable enough. Here are a few photos: http://s778.photobucket.com/user/josephlong757/slideshow/1951%20Buick%20Super So, I’m guessing that you’d all enjoy a little background! She was purchased new by a local funeral home here in Georgia and was used in funeral processions and driven by the family up until the mid 1970’s. The car then passed to an amateur collector who drove her on occasion and frequented car shows up until
  13. Hey all, I own a 1951 Buick Special equipped with the dreaded "Dynaslow", "Dynaslush", or however you prefer to call it. It's honestly not that bad, granted I've only driven it for about a month. But, I was wondering, how much wear would it put on the transmission if I started off in low gear and then proceeded to switch to drive at around 30? You've probably got this question plenty of times at this point, but I couldn't find any other threads regarding this topic. Thanks for your time. Sincerely, Jacob
  14. Hello, I'm pretty excited as this is the first time I'm posting a thread on this forum. Unfortunately, my first post is marred by tragedy(A financial tragedy, at least). The story begins when I nabbed my license approximately a year ago, as I turned sixteen. I have been collecting and restoring vintage radios, televisions, and phonographs for the past ten years so I am mechanically inclined, and my uncle owns a garage where he assured me I would have access to the resources I needed to fulfill my dream. That dream? To own a classic car and employ it as my daily driver. Foolish I know, but at t
  15. MrEarl recommended that I post a link to my restoration website and blog: http://www.bessythebuick.com/ Really excited about this project! So far, I've had good luck locating needed parts and received excellent guidance from the Buick community locally (Colorado) as well as nationally. Good folks all around:) Thanks, Jeff
  16. Rechromed '51 taillight spears for 2-door Ford. With installation hardware. $335 for the pair plus shipping.
  17. Somewhere in the forum I found a post that listed the exact part number for the radiator for the 1951 40-series with Dynaflow, and what other years interchanged. I wrote it down, then lost what I wrote & can't find the post again. Anyone have that info? I believe it's a common part across 1950-52, but want to check. My '51 does not have the original radiator & rather than restore/recore this mystery part, I need to start over with the right radiator.
  18. Good day everybody, I am really happy that I discovered this group. I have been following a number of threads, and have learned a lot. Some of the journeys that these vehicles have traveled to get where they are is truly inspiring. Unfortunately, I am a stone cold rookie, so I won't be able to offer much in the way of new wisdom. I hope it is okay with you folks, but for a while at least, I will be asking for help much more than I will be able to offer any. My story starts with my first purchase of a 1951 Buick Special off Ebay. The seller turned out to be a great car guy, and I ended up with
  19. Y'all probably remember this one from the buy & sell forum. I said it would take a while, but it's finally arrived, after a roll-back, an 18-wheeler, and another roll-back. Now safely tucked away inside my garage. Roy's description was accurate but for one thing - while it was up on the transporter I looked underneath, and it looked even better than I expected. Darned phone was re-booting at that moment, so no photos. A couple of hornet's nests were found (and I don't mean just a figure of speech - real hornets). For now, my kids have named this one "Mater" for the patina. My daughter even
  21. Want to Buy a 1951 Chrysler New Yorker station wagon. This would be the 331" Hemi motor on the 131.5" wheelbase chassis (shared with Imperial). Condition from very good restorable to older restoration or "what have you?". NOT interested in '52-54 similar wagons as those are all shorter wheelbase. NOT interested in 1951 Saratoga with Hemi on shorter wheelbase. MUST be the New Yorker on the 131.5 wheelbase. Thank you.
  22. I have a used, but in fantastic condition, Radiator from a 1951 Chrysler Windsor Deluxe. This will also fit 1952 6 cylinder Chryslers. May also work with other Mopars. I was going through a boneyard when a new arrival, a 1951 Chrysler Windosr Deluxe caught my eye. I would swear the car was driven there. (what a shame) The car was in good condition minus a few pieces now. It looked like someones treasure and pleasure before the inheritance. I pulled a few smaller parts when the radiator caught my eye. It was in such great condition on the outside, almost perfect. Then when I removed the cap,
  23. Have a '51 Roadmaster 4 door with a broken front stabilizer. Looking for a decent used one. Can also use the two "U" shaped mounting brackets (one of mine is mangled). I know this part is common with a couple other years but don't remember off hand. Tim minoxphogorapher@yahoo.com
  24. :cool:EMAIL ME @. July_93704@yahoo.com if you can help. Thanks.
