  1. This is a 2 for one project. I was planning on making one original car and one street rod. To make the one original one you need parts off both... One has a good frame one doesn`t. one has overdrive one doesn`t, one has seats one doesn`t there is enough trim to for one. there are enough original wheels for one etc.. Don`t hesitate to ask for details... One I got in Northern Alberta one came up from California... Both are located in Northern Alberta now. I need $4000.00 US for the pair... If you only want one it is the same price as both. The engine was running in one when I got it.. The other should run but I have never tried it... both are 4 cylinder. You need to consider this to need a complete restoration... the parts that have been done ( not by me) will need to be redone This vehicle was only made as a 2 wheel driver in 1947. This is the first or perhaps the second year of production for this vehicle.
  2. I've looked around and heard that while not as powerful as a Buick straight 8, the Pontiac straight 8 is quite reliable. But I've heard a couple of people tell 'horror' stories about pistons splitting in two on the 268 of the 1950s. But is this a common problem with the Pontiac 248 straight 8 as well? Are there any problems that the 248 is prone to having? Thanks in advance.
  3. Hey all, I am in the middle of restoring a 1932 Buick 67 and the plates that are on it are CA 1947. I would love to have a pair of CA 1932 plates to go with it, and seeing how I don't need the '47 plates, I would like to make a trade or a deal with anyone who has '32 plates. Thanks!
  4. I'm passing this information along for anyone interested in completing a restoration. The owner has owned this car for over 30 years and has completely restored the chassis and power train with all new or rebuilt items. Engine completely rebuilt, as well as transmission, suspension, brakes, etc. He has all the parts from the car to make the car complete, with much new material such as new original upholstery, all new glass, radiator, floor mats, even the paint. Chrome bumpers and guards have been re-plated. Some of the body work has been completed with new metal, but some rust areas remain. He started the restoration several years ago, but health problems prevent him from finishing it. The car is located in Livonia, Michigan (a little northwest of Detroit). I looked at the car a couple of days ago, and it's well worth completing, everything is there, and the work that has been done is good. He'd like to see someone finish it, and is asking $4500 or best offer. His name is Ken Vadnais and can be reached at 734-748-6557.
  5. The car is located in the Central Lakes area of Minnesota. Ready to be restored. I have more pics if needed. No title. Has the engine in it. I'm sure its froze. Bring your trailer. Ready to sell it. Don't have the time to put into it. It's taking up space at this point.
  6. Includes the original carburetor, air cleaner, water pump, distributor, porcelain intake manifold, heads, crank, rods, cam, valves, etc., etc. Nothing has been disassembled other than to remove the original Hydramatic transmission from engine. Needs complete rebuild, but it's all there. Just the thing you need if you want to install a Hydramatic in a car that didn't originally have one ...or if yours is beyond rebuilding. Located in Southern California. Complete assembly $975 OBO. (661) 212-2559. Email jefarrar2@yahoo.com
  7. Hello All, I'm hunting a Sportsman! I'm helping my buddies wife surprise him with a 30th anniversary present in May, so time is of the essence. Hopefully it is not pheasant red or monsoon maroon. I need a fully restored car or really solid survivor. I found one in CA, but the guy just isn't moving fast enough. I'm located in State College PA and am willing to travel anywhere for the right color and am realistic on the pricing. If you know of one , please contact me at 570-220-2276 or at eric@greenvalleymotors.com. Thanks, Eric Allen
  8. Hi, The Chief of the 8th Battalion operated this beauty. I believe that it is a 1946-48 Chevrolet but I'm hoping someone can give me an exact year and perhaps a model? Thanks!! Steve
  9. Have a question: I moved to Milwaukee for work. Shipped my 1947 Super from TX and it arrived with a dead battery. The truck driver offloaded it and then he jumped it with a 12 volt charger. I wasn't happy about it, but couldn't leave it on the side of the road in the area I'm living until we close on a house. The battery died again as soon as I got it into the garage. Bought a charger, the charger broke down before charging the battery. Bought a new battery, put it in and now the car doesn't seem to fire. Starter sound okay, but no start. Could the 12 volt jump screwed up anything that I should think about replacing? Another thought. I believe the 40s buicks had a safety feature that routed the generator through the ingnition. If the brushes were worn down, the car would not start. Could this be the issue with the dead battery and now the failure to start?
  10. 1948 Packard 8 deluxe, color is Egyptian Sand, model 2262, serial # 226229972, lovingly cared for and remarkably well preserved luxury motor car! It has lovely beige/tan exterior, 288 cubic inch inline 8 cylinder engine, manual transmission, 120 inch wheelbase, and remarkably low mileage, 17890 miles since new. It drives and rides and handles as new. This exceptionally low mileage car is nicely equipped with options: front and rear handsome bumper guards, fender skirts, radio, clock, and backup light. The original jack is in its unopened box in the trunk, original spare tire, owners manual, other papers, and a thick service manual. This handsome car is equipped with wide whitewall 760 X 15 bias ply tires. Paint, upholstery, headliner, and instrument panel are in excellent condition. Very minor blemishes: narrow two inch long chip in paint on edge of hood drivers side, at bottom of passenger side door the stainless molding has been scraped, pictures of these 2 included; also a hairline scrape 6 inches long at bottom of rear door on passenger side; and a couple minor scratches on front of hood below the hood ornament, no pictures included because I doubt it they would show up in a picture. These are not obvious to the average admirer of the car, only to someone inspecting, looking for any flaws. Reduced to $22,500 (U.S. dollars). 336-765-8312, Winston Salem, North Carolina, USA.

  14. I looked at a 1947 Olds 98 Coupe this weekend. Most the chrome is intact with the exception of the grill, hood trim and the rear wheel well covers, if it had them. All the glass is gone, the seats, except what looks to be a rear seat fold down center console are gone. Sheet metal is in really good shape. The guy told me that they only made around 600 or so? I am not normally an olds fan, but after having my heart broke finding out that the 62' f100 unibody shortbox with the wrap around back glass was crushed 3 months ago that I had been planning to build, I went on the prowl. The inline 8 is still under the hood, who knows if it's siezed, it has the Hydra-Matic transmission. He quoted me $7500 for the car, but had "a little" room. My question is, Are these cars that rare & how much of an issue is finding the parts? The dash is just steel, I have seen pics of the wooden dashes & it has a hole in the dash for a clock. Soooo many questions!!! I just really love the lines of the car & wanted to know if it's as rare/unique as the guy said or if I should keep my eyes peeled for a better buy.
  15. Hello AACA & fellow Cadillac enthusiasts- My friend's father owned two of these great classics during his life. This one he kept until he passed away. We are trying to ascertain value for the car and find a way to sell the car. I've done a bit of research and they appear to be fairly rare. Some models look very valuable. It is all original. I don't know when he bought the car, but I know it has sat at his present residence for 43 years. During that time it has not moved. The body is solid overall. The fenders and the step have rust damage and a few dents. The paint appears to be the original coat. It is cracked and beat up. Mileage shows just over 2630, which means it has most certainly rolled over. It has the Hydra-Matic transmission. Small round parking lights, 5-bar grill. Motor appears to be in good condition as does woodwork. Chrome is not badly weathered. I believe it is matching numbers. It has the radio and fender mounted antenna. He started to do some work to the motor and attempted some patch work (in fiberglass - definitely a bad decision, but just on one fender). There are some spare parts, new correct whitewall tires. Apparently it belonged to the Eaton family, who were quite famous in Canada for owning a large chain of department stores. Any advice or comments will be gratefully received. Thank you in advance. I have lots of photos. We are wondering if something like ebay would be best, or private sale and where to? Would you keep it original? I think it deserves a restoration.
  16. Finally got to do some work on my 47 Custom Super Clipper and found both shackles eaten up with rust on one of the two bolts. My big question is should I go out and buy a new pair off the shelf, that won't look anything like the original or cut off the bad bolt, drill it out and press a new bolt in, keep it looking stock from the factory? I would like to keep it as close as possible to original, but at the same time keeping safety in mind for many years of happy carefree driving. Thanks for any and all help Wes
  17. Hi, please.. can you help me to find the drawing of the body (sheet metal) to my chrysler windsor 1947 2 doors. (maybe the exploded view picture of body parts better)... thank you very much..
  18. I'm looking for two Buick Radio knobs. I believe the style I want comes from a 46-48 vehicle. They are the knobs that look like this --http://www.conceptcarz.com/view/photo/424802,11291,0,0/photo.aspx They are made of bakelite or some other plastic. I'm somewhat flexible on color, but prefer a creme, gold/tan... Thank you for looking!
  19. I'm wondering if this hubcap is from the 1947-1956 Ford F100 and F1s. I was given this cap today by my grandfather who had it in his old garage for awhile. It was from one of his grandparent's vehicles, so the time makes sense. The other caps from this timeframe don't have the red on them, that's what confuses me. Thanks! 1st photo- before polishing 2nd photo- polished 3rd photo- side shot
  20. I'm posting this for a friend here in town, and have it posted in the general ads too. It's spring cleaning time and this ol Stude's days are numbered. He's not a car guy, so this thing will be hitting the big electro-magnet in the sky very soon, unless somebody drags it off. 48 Stude 2 door Commander, no engine or trans in car, but he does have the original tranny and some of the engine. (6cyl/3-speedOD) Rust in the floorboards and trunk floor. Not sure about the frame. The body is solid enough to save but could also be parted out. He just pulled it out of the weeds and set it up on blocks. He also took a bunch more pictures which are posted on the Flikr site below. $ 300 obo Phil http://www.flickr.com/photos/30878003@N06/ Contact me or call him direct: Rick 812-243-9962 or richard.jones at cinergy.com<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
