  5. Not sure if this is the best place for this question, but here it is. I have been in the process of doing a total re-wood of a 1930 Buick four door sedan, the big one, for many (too many) years. As I near the end of the process, a nagging question comes back to me. Should a person "screw and glue" the connections and joints throughout the body, or just screw them together and leave it at that?? The Fisher Body Service manual says that joints are "screwed and glued" throughout the book, almost every time a joint is described. However, my local restoration shop and others never glue their joints and say not to. The pros for "screwing and gluing" are maximum strength and less chance of squeaks. The pros of screwing without gluing are ease and the ability to readily replace bad or damaged pieces of wood in the future. What is the current school of thought on this? Also, what is the best treatment for the wood when done, other than the asphalt-based coating Fisher Body used?
  6. Looking to buy wholesale lots of New NOS GM, A-C/Delco parts at the Hershey show. Even if you don't know what they fit bring them along and most likely I will buy as long as they have part #'s. Please e-mail description of what you have, name and space #. I will be arriving Wednesday. Thanks, Bill
  7. I have a 1973 Buick Century GS 455 Stage 1 w/Muncie 4 speed, all #'s matching. It is 1 of only 7 straight from the factory that year with this engine & transmission package. Does anyone have info on this rare combo. I have only found 1 of the other 6 which was featured in a car mag years ago. Any info is greatly appreciated!
  8. First time poster, little knowledge about this older Buick coupe I have. I inherited this beautiful '86 LeSabre Sesquicentennial a few years ago. Less than 75,000 miles, rebuilt engine with less than 10,000 miles on it, garaged, everything except the heat worked. Unfortunately it got tagged in a parking lot and the right side door is now inoperable. I'm now looking to part it out if at all possible, really hoping that there may be some restoration interest somewhere. I have zero experience parting out a car and would love any tips or feedback ya'll can provide. Thanks!
  9. The Estate Wagon is coming along nicely. The rear wheel tubs were nicely covered by Trevor Brown Upholstery in Edmonton (yes, they kept patterns). Now the main cargo area. Does anyone have any experience in gluing down the rubber matting to the various cargo and seat areas? I tried weather-strip glue but it would not stick. Thoughts? Cheers. Michael.

  13. Hi, My indicator stalk in the 64 Riviera has stopped working (doesn't "click" up or down).........resulted in the stalk breaking, which I have removed and can fix. Anyone had this issue before? I have pulled the wheel but can't seem to get the top of the column off to see what's inside.....or does the entire column need to come out to look at it all....? Thanks in Advance Mai Ki-Ki

  15. I bought this beautiful car from my friend's mother when her husband died at 92 years of age. He was a major car guy, and this was his driver (My friend swears his father parked it in the garage and covered it daily.) Nobody in the family was interested in owning it or taking the time to sell it, and the local Buick dealer had made a low-ball offer for it. Just to show how little the dealer was offering, I said I'd pay twice the amount, and the next thing I knew, I owned it. I'm not a collector or a mechanic, so while the Reatta is drop-dead beautiful and runs like a new car, I have it covered in the garage, unused, while I drive my rusted 95 Wrangler. Before I put it on eBay or craigslist, I thought I'd put it here in the hope that someone who really appreciates it might want to own it. I'll probably upset some of you with this, but the non-stock 17 inch chrome wheels on this car make it the best looking Reatta I've seen! I am asking $5000, and the car is in Green Bay, WI. Thanks for looking. Added: I can't seem to figure out how to attach either the form I've filled or a photo, so I'm posting it without the attachments. You can contact me at and I'll email you pics and the form. 1. Year:___1990____ Coupe: __x__ Conv:____ Mileage:__119,332________ Considered Correct?

  16. We are in the process of working on a 1937 Buick Roadmaster Series 80 trying to get it road ready so we can enjoy it. I am having problems finding parts anywhere for something this old. We would would prefer OEM parts that look original on this car. From what we know everything on the car is factory. There are a couple things missing, nothing major. As we drive the car we will need certain things to keep it on the road. I posted some images of the car in my profile gallery. Some of the things that appear to be missing like the carburetor and bumpers are not. The bumpers were removed and chromed recently. The carburetor has been removed so we can rebuild it. Any suggestions or information would be helpful. All the places that I have found that have classic Buick parts only go back to 1946.

  18. Hi, I became the happy owner of both a 50 and 60 series Victoria coupes recently. The 50 is in pieces and boxes and has no running gear, the 60 is complete but a bit rough and will need major work all over. Both cars are in different states currently many hundreds of miles from here. The 50 is really solid, little rust . Is there anyone that knows if the bodies of the 2 cars are the same exact size and could be interchangeable on the frames. Also, does anyone know what the differences in the sheetmetal are? Are the grilles the same, and the bumpers etc? Also, does anyone know of a great place for reproduction 34/35 Buick parts is ? I'd like to eventually have both cars up and running in the future, but the 50 series on the 60 frame could really speed things up, I think. Any thoughts and info on this is greatly appreciated, Thanks, in advance.

  20. Im looking to purchase 1953 Buick Skylark Kelsey wire wheels. Any help would be very appreciated!
  21. Hi everyone! I had posted this car in a sale thread about a year ago, but decided to hang on to it and see if I could fix some of the minor things that were wrong with it (like the heater and wiper motor). Thankfully, I was able to get the parts needed so I'm very happy to list this again for sale. I have to say, it was really fun working on this with a good friend of mine who knows his way around a car. Sadly, I still have to try to say goodbye and sell it. I just don't have the time to enjoy it, and waaay too many other hobbies! Anyway, it's a 1960 Buick Lesabre 4 door hard-top. It has approximately 78,000 mies on it, and is located in Columbus Ohio (43081). The exterior looks pretty good, with some bubbling/rust on the lower edges of the sides, and signs of an old restoration spot on the passenger side near the front door. The interior carpet and seat upholstery really need to be restored, but the interior is still fine for driving around town. As for some of my remaining "to do" list on it- The parking brake works, but could use a good tightening to the cable. There is also a slight ATF drip. Other than that, I don't tend to drive it that much but it starts up and drives around town just fine! I'm asking $5000 for it, but I'm more than willing to discuss any serious offers. I have the title as well as the Preliminary Chassis Service Manual and the larger Chasis Service Manual. If anyone is interested and would like more info and more pictures, please email me at
  22. Ground up restoration to original color. Good condition. Runs great! Solid car. Always popular at the car shows. 2 door. White top and Aqua color on the bottom. Will email pictures or see at link below. Located in Boise, Idaho

  24. This 1960 Buick LeSabre convertible has been the subject of a no-expense-spared restoration to show standards. It is currently offered for sale by a long-time AACA member and collector of 20 prize-winning vehicles. Originally a well-maintained South Carolina vehicle, this Buick was rust free allowing all original panels to be restored to as new condition. All die-cast was removed and re-plated by Librandi’s Plating of Middletown, Pennsylvania. Concours level paint in Titian Red metallic. Interior, trunk, top and rear window are all new and faithful to the original pattern, material and construction. All interior metal—horn escutcheon, window and door handles, arm rests and A pillar trim—was removed and re-plated as new. The interior also has an NOS Buick accessory tissue dispenser with original box. Highly detailed engine bay and the attention to restoration detail is evident throughout with correct decals and instruction tags placed as per original. The jack and related jack hardware, and even the hood springs, have been meticulously restored to their proper finishes. National First Place and AACA Senior Award 2013 Hershey Fall Meet. This car must be seen to be appreciated! Asking $59,500. I am selling on behalf of a Hershey region owner. Please email for further details: SEE EBAY LISTING
  25. Hi . . . I was taking care of a friend's dog in West Hollywood, so this recent LA transplant took the opportunity to walk along Sunset Boulevard. I found this 1941 Buick in a gas station and had to take a look. Noting the Mexican plates, I took a look inside and saw the speedo was in kilometers. Wow! I chatted with the proprietors and they said it was a friend's and it was a '38 (I corrected them). I then asked them if I could take some pics. They were very willing and I was very thankful for that because, y'know, sometimes people can be weird (as well as people like me having ulterior motives). They told me the same guy owned the 1955 Cadillac on the lot and yes, the speedo was in kmh as well - cool! I sent the pics to my friend (who's a member here), who told me the following: The Century is a bit of a mystery. Officially, it does not seem to be a factory export model, because the body number is too high...only 109 Model 61X four-door sedans were made, while 15,027 non-export were built. The data plate is bent down, concealing the model number, which would be 61X for an export car, 61 for a regular Century. The style number, 41-4609 is correct for the series and model. The GM export situation is rather confusing. There were cars built for export and sold through the export organization, but there were also cars exported that did not for one reason or another go through the export sales company. This must be one of those cars. There were also Canadian Buicks, but they were still produced by GM of Canada and were technically McLaughlin Buicks. (There is a possibility they did not build the large series models, though, so this could still be a car built in the US for the Canadian market.) The kilometer speedometer is incredibly cool! The data plate has the correct rivets, but the serial number strip should be attached differently...not with screws. The number, however, is a 1941 Flint-built Buick number and looks to me like it falls generally in the early months of the model year range, which would be consistent with the body number. The color code 571 is for English Green, which the car apparently remains. He then followed up with this: Just one more thought on the '41 might have been assembled in Mexico. Attached is part of a story from GM World magazine about the GM assembly operation there in 1940. Sub-assemblies and parts were shipped from the US in crates with assembly finished in the plant. These cars may have had regular Fisher Body plates, or not. Almost certainly, the Century was at least ordered through the GM de Mexico operation. However, look at the Cadillac's data plate. Strange, eh? Here's what my friend said: The Cadillac with the blank data plate is also a mystery. It looks like there might be another plate the left of it that might have some addition info? The blank data plate kind of rings a bell...I think I've read about another Cadillac that had such a plate. On the other hand, the rivets are non-standard and one is in the wrong place, making me think the plate may have been added after production. It may be there simply to legally prove the car was produced in the US, with the other info being not relevant. A few Cadillac were still sold new outside of the US at the time. I know an elderly guy who worked for Cadillac as a regional manager for the Caribbean area in this period... Anyone can help with insight beyond my equally enthusiastic friend?
