  3. 1953 Lincoln Capri – won the Mexican road race and setting records The engine an all-new 205HP, 317.5CI OHV, V-8, and new dual-range Hydra-Matic transmission. In the October, 1952 issue of Popular Mechanics, a Lincoln Capri was tested. 0-60 mph time was 14.8 seconds, while the quarter-mile was 21.3 seconds. At 40 mph, fuel economy was recorded at 21mpg.
  4. Now that we've had the first decent day without any rain or cold and I've finally gotten the brakes done over the winter, I'm wanting to take her around the block. The 'ol girl starts right up without any problem. However she'll idle for a few seconds and then die. When I manage to shift her into Low gear to drive her, she seems to have no power. When I give her gas, there's some pops and hesitations. There seems to be no difference in her sluggishness when I put the pedal closer to the floor. I'm terrified that I'm doing damage to her. I realize this could be a lot of things, but I'd appreciate any advice on where to begin my troubleshooting. Professionally rebuilt engine, rebuilt carburetor, new plugs/wires, new exhaust, Pertronix electronic ignition, new fuel tank and lines. Lamar, wanna come over sometime? I can get some Fat Tire for ya!

  11. 1-29-14 I am writing an illustrated history of the evolution of factory air conditioning and am currently seeking 1953-1960 Oldsmobile press releases, owner's manuals, fact book information and other pertinent ephemera which includes the initial road testing, introduction and updating of the air conditioning systems. With this exercise, the legacy of the air conditioning literature will be utilized and recorded. In a much larger context, I have collected multi-make AC literature and am in the process of writing about AC evolution through illustrations not only of Oldsmobile, but of all car makes, 1953-1960, plus the 1940-1942 time period. I will appreciate your response and I will ensure that your contributions will be credited in the publication. Thank you, Archiveman2977 Allen B. Simons
  12. 11-23-13 Please provide the turning radius for the 1953 Buick Roadmaster vs. 1953 Chrysler New Yorker. Thanks, Archiveman2977
  13. Hey My 53 Riviera has a set of aftermarket Skylark wire spoke rims on it. I just got my new Diamond back tires and was in the process of cleaning up the wheels and resealing the spokes. Here is my problem, I have one wheel with two broken spokes and one with six broken spokes, argh!! Seems to me from my limited research that spoke rims are a constant maintenance concern, needing tightening and trueing every so often. I would like to get some information on repair and re trueing them. So does any one have any suggestions on who'd they use for this? If this turns out to be over the top expensive I may just take it back to the original look of the steel wheels and wire Buick caps. This brings up another question, what kind of steel wheels would I use? Will the Buick caps mount to any 15", 5 on 5? I am assuming I would just need to match it to the same offset and bolt pattern? Seeking knowledge and enlightenment Rick
  14. Looking for a frame for my 53 super Riviera 56R two door hard top. I posted this before but got no serious responses. Any help would be appreciated. Rick
  15. I have a 1953 Buick Super that has power brakes. I am having a difficult time finding a rebuild kit for the master cylinder as well as the booster. does anyone have any ideas? The unit is a Delco-Moraine and I think it was also used on the 1954 model. Any help would be appreciated. :eek:
  16. Wanted 1953 buick bombsight hood ornament. Please see photos for the specific hood ornament I am looking for. If you have one, please email me with an image and asking price. Thank you. aimeedare@yahoo.com
  17. What position should the hinges be in for installation of the hood? The hood is the alligator style. Should they be in the closed or open position? Also does anybody have any tips on this process? The '53 manual doesn't seem to cover this. Thanks!
  18. Howdy ya'll! It's been a while, but I've been working so hard and I'm finally finished painting. I'm starting to install trim and such back on. However I've run into a snag. The original moulding clip retainers for the rocker panel trim and the reveal moulding around the back glass (located near the rear quarter windows) was so badly rusted that parts of the pieces practically crumbled in my hand or was ripped off and still attatched to said moulding when trying to remove it (I was gentle, I promise!) So I'm wondering if anybody happens to know of a supplier or any alternatives to obtain this seemingly obscure part. I searched here on the forums and through the standard Buick supplier website but came up empty handed. It seems that they might be fairly simple to fabricate, but metal forging is not my forte. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. This being said, looks like spring is gonna be the official maiden voyage!

    HyDrive linkage help

    I bought a semi restored 1953 Cranbrook, the linkage was in the trunk and I cant get them to line up. The rod that goes to the back selector (towards the driveshaft ) is there but my problem is the front one. It goes to an elbow that then goes up to the column. Could someone post a picture of theirs or describe how the rods run and connect to the transmission ? Thanks for any help or guidance !! :confused:

  23. I'm trying to sell my 1953 GMC tow truck. Thing is in amazing condition, always garaged, taken well care of and tastefully restored! The interior is great on this truck and hasn't had animals or anything like that in it, no smokers. The exhaust has been turned into custom dual exhaust, which gives it that nice burly sound. It has 86,XXX original miles on it, has a 270 engine in it and a manual 4 speed transmission. Everything on the truck works. The pics don't lie this truck is very clean and well taken care of and never abused! I'm asking 23,000 for it but of course O.B.O. I just want this truck to go to a good home and to be well taken care of, it used to be shown in California and won 1st or 2nd in it's class, was recently this summer at the local classic truck show in Donald. Sadly, tough times and not enough time causes me to sell. Please e-mail me for any questions, info, more photos anything!
