  1. Has anyone here had experience with an A/C on a 320 straight-eight? I have seen an after-market A/C installed in at least one Roadmaster before but have never heard how it worked. I would think it would be a heavy load on the motor and might not cool very well while overheating the engine. There is room for it under the hood apparently. I live in Houston and the A/C is much needed.
  2. Having left Abington in MG red, the TC presented here now wears a distinctive Kelly Green with light brown top, and brown interior. An older restoration, the paint is not without blemishs however one has to be close to notice any imperfections. At first glance, you may not notice the horizontal radiator shutters done in a very subtle dark maroon, complimenting the body color. Grill has no dents and combined with bright work is in very nice condition, as are the polished “knock offs”, while the painted wire wheels makes tedious polishing a non-worry. The right headlight suffers one dent, a common occurrence while closing the bonnet on T series cars. The foldable windscreen is in very nice condition, as is the brooklands aeroscreen for those days when the mood takes you to fold down the windscreen, to reach your optimal speed. Under the bonnet, the engine bay is very tidy with a polished valve cover sitting on top of a nicely re-painted block, with all rubber fittings appearing to be in good condition. Toolboxes built into the body come equipped with jack and hammer necessary to remove “knock off” should one suffer a flat aside the road. Doors close nicely as they should with no door sag. Door checks are intact, as we see many lesser quality cars with them missing or broken. Upon entering the vehicle, one notices the machine turned doorsills before settling into the comfortable cockpit. The brown upholstery shows small signs of wear, only matching the exterior of the car. The wood grain dashboard could stand a re-veneering, however we would probably leave it alone. All switches as well as choke and starter pulls are marked, alleviating any confusion while operating. Grey faced gauges play nicely, matching the steering column, all correct for the TC model. The top is in nice condition, sporting a light patina which blends well with a restoration of this age. Largely untouched cosmetically, upon arriving on the east coast, this TC has underwent a great deal of sorting all of which is documented in a personal logs, in addition to the file full of parts receipts. This TC runs and idles very nicely, however digging into the receipts files, it is noted the current tires and tubes were purchased in January of 2003; thus we would encourage new rubber all round for increased safety and comfort. Combined with a thorough going through of the braking system, this TC will be ready to venture any great distance. Underneath the car is rust free, with chassis in excellent condition – we noted there is not pitting or other signs of corrosion in the past. Depending ones level of meticulousness, this TC could stand a lot from a carpet kit, and brake lever boot. We can see it being just fine as is for fun motoring or seasonal touring. Topped off with a period correct owners manual and brooklands steering wheel, vintage turn indicators in the rear add a level safety for driving in modern traffic, while the fronts are discreetly incorporated into your parking lights. This TC also comes equipped with a Marchal driving light in very nice condition, accompanied by a vintage New England MG T Series register badge, which helps complete the pre-war sports car look. Complete with all weather gear and tonneau, the side curtains are stored neatly in their compartment built into the rear of the body. While it is not concour fresh, it will be gladly welcomed at any local show. This TC has just the right amount of patina to be enjoyed as a weekend driver, classic to run around town in, or for others may be a perfect candidate for a light cosmetic restoration. It is an example that one can be proud of, yet not afraid to drive. An ideal tour vehicle and would be welcomed by any number of clubs, including the Vintage Sports Car Club of America.

  3. Hi everyone, I just bought my first old car this weekend and so far so good, but I'm trying to learn as much as possible before I have problems. I picked up a 1949 Dodge Wayfarer Business Coupe with the fluid drive trans and flathead 6. I Don't know much about these old Dodge's but I'm dying to learn. Looking forward to everyone's input! From reading some posts I noticed that everyone is recommending 30W or 20/50 in the motor and 10wtND for the fluid drive trans. Any disagreements there? Does anyone know where I can get a repair manual for the car? Wiring Diagrams? Thanks everyone! Steve
  4. I need a decent straight lid to replace lid on my convertible - I believe the fourdoor or Riviera lid will work too. I am located in Texas.
  5. There she goes. Being towed off to the shop for the major phases of the restoration that will take until February or March next year to complete. I've been working on this project since October 2006. My plan has always been to do as much of the disassembly as I could with my limited facilities at home while pressing forward with restoration of component parts. Much is finished but much is left to go and most of that is now in much more capable hands than mine. What I thought I would do here is share some of my photos from the work of the past six years while at the same time, posting updates with photos as the work progresses at the shop. The car is a 1949 Super 4dr. Allendale Green. I first saw it sitting for sale at a car repair shop located along my route to work. I drove by it for one whole month and finally the urge was not resistible any longer. I stopped once, twice and brought money on the third visit. Thinking back, I can't believe I waited so long to pull the trigger. The car is a complete, original survivor with factory original paint. The original upholstery was covered with seat covers that bore 1954 manufacturing tags when we got around to the disassembly at the upholstery phase. We drove the car locally and enjoyed it for four years before the restoration was started. I have hundreds of photos and videos taken during the disassembly of this vehicle. Some I will share here to compare the original with the restored. If anyone out there is working on a similar car and you need any reference photos, let me know. Dan
  6. Hello all. First time on the forum. I just bought a 1949 Chrysler Windsor 2 door. Looks like it needs a new gas tank but I'm having trouble finding a decently priced one online. Anyone know where I can find one or where to find a tank from another car that wouod fit it? Thanks.
  7. This is a native Colorado car with a solid body and virtually no rust. The car is mostly complete, has never been restored. It has a straight eight engine that ran, I am told, a few years ago. It turns by hand but I have not tried to start her. It has a radiator problem, I am told and the car comes with 2 radiators. Thisis a really nice project car$2000

  12. I have for sale a Convertible Top Switch for the 1949 and 1950 Chrysler products (I believe) with 6V electric folding tops. It is the same basic switch as for the 1951 1952 1953 and 1954 however the toggle stem is a different length. The rectangular lke portion of the stem is 7/16" long. The threaded portion is 3/8" long. The toggle stem is 1/2" long. This was in a box of NOS switches that had become separated from their boxes. I believe this would be part number 1302996. I have checked it with an Ohm meter and it functions properly. The handle returns to center nicely after being rotated right or left. The threads look new and no indication a toggle handle was on it before. I had this one as a backup but once I found a correct spare one for my car, I no longer need this one. A deal at $249.

  21. Ok guys.. I know a few of you have been following my antics with my 1949 Roadmaster... well, I noticed today, that when I hooked up my battery to the 'ol car, the voltage regulator got hot, and the generator was getting warm! Now this was happening with the car OFF and the ignition in the OFF position! I have noticed some sparks coming from the negative battery terminal whenever I hook up the battery, so I was looking everything over today and was about to open up the voltage regulator when I noticed it was hot... I remember some of the guys mentioning this in one of my previous posts, so perhaps I might be able to fix this problem by messing around with the points on the regulator?? I'm actually thinking this IS the problem of why my battery drains when the car is off overnight. Jerry 1949 Buick Roadmaster 4 Door

  23. Alright.. almost can't believe it was this easy and simple..but if anyone has been following my posts, my 1949 Roadmaster was having problems starting/battery draining. Well, I ordered NEW battery cables from YNZ, and..... VOILA! Not sure if it was my positive cable, or my braided negative cable, but the ol' lady fired right up with absolutely NO hesitation!!! Now that I have a brand new braided negative cable, I can actually see how bad/old my old one was.. wow. In the meantime while waiting for the cables to arrive, I had also removed as many ground locations I could find/think of, and cleaned them up. I CAN NOT express how important it is to have CLEAN grounding locations, and good/proper battery cables! I know this from trial and error now! Ok.. Now, since the new battery cables did their jobs, when I fired her up I noticed something really weird. I am not sure if it is because she is getting all the juices she needs from the battery, but now I have a weird "HISSING" sound emanating from underneath her dash. It seems to be coming from near the steering column area, under the dash. I have absolutely NO idea what this is. Can it possibly be the defrost??? All of my push/pull levers are in the "off" position.. So, does ANYONE know what this "hissing" noise could be??? Is this a really BAD thing? Or is this something that can be fixed as simple as putting in my new battery cables were? Has anyone ever had this happen to their cars?? ANY input is welcome!

  24. It's a long shot, but I thought I would give it a shot.. I am looking to make contact with the prior owner or original owner (original owner contact would be great!), of my newly acquired 1949 Buick Roadmaster 4 Door. On the vehicle title, the prior owner's name is Richard Nelson. Supposedly, the prior owner had purchased the Buick from the Original owner around 2010 in the midwest.. Through my investigations on the web, I had come across a website that had a prior bid of vehicle transportation for my 1949 Roadmaster. I am pretty sure that it is my car since I purchased it in San Juan Capistrano California.. The transportation bid was to transport a 1949 Roadmaster 4 Door from York Pennsylvania, to San Juan Capistrano California. Only thing is, this bid was dated 2006, AND, was from York Pennsylvania- NOT the midwest. I bought my Buick on a consignment lot in San Juan Capistrano so I was unfortunately unable to speak withe the owner of the vehicle.. There is absolutely nothing that I am upset about with my Roadmaster.. I am only looking to make contact because I would like to perhaps acquire old photos, or any kind of stories or history of the car. I absolutely LOVE my 1949 Roadmaster, and this is why I am I guess "obsessed" with this vehicle. It would also help to find out what and where the last owner left off with repairs or refurbishing. My '49 Roadmaster is a 4 Door, with black paint for the exterior, and a darker green with lighter green for the dash. All of my paint/trim codes match for my car, but I wouldn't know if the numbers plate is original since I have not spoken with any prior owner! I do not mind if it is not original.. just curious.. Comments are welcome, and appreciated! But I do ask, if anyone does know of the above mentioned person, please send me info in a private message. Thank you guys! Jerry 1949 Buick Roadmaster 4Door.
  25. Going to look at a 49 Pontiac this weekend, was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some good parts sites/places for her? Also was wondering about production numbers. Thanks
