  1. parting out 1955 Ford, (no body panels or seats), 336-627-9142, call 8-10 pm EST.
  2. I am parting out a 1955 Studebaker Commander Coupe 6V V8. I still have many good parts available including many NOS parts I acquired to complete the project. Many of these parts fit 53-55 Loewy coupes and 56-62 Hawks. Here is a partial list, please ask if you need something specifically: front hood release structural panel..some rust replated door handles pair trunk latch hook 6v v8 generator rear bumper (rusted) rear bumper brackets steering wheel w/ horn ring and suicide knob very good used condition dash board sheet metal gauges gauge bezel rechromed NOS cluch and brake pedals accelerator
  3. 1955 Dodge 1/2T Pickup, C3B. Short/lowside box. $3500, Richland, WA. This pickup originally came with the flathead six, but has been replaced by others with a 318 Poly V8. The truck has not run for about 6-7 years -- just sitting, but should run with simple maintenance/startup procedures. It is a four speed on the floor. The body is in good shape. the only major body damage is the rear driver fender, and those are easy to replace/find (or this could be repaired). Floor is solid with surface rust. There is some rust on the bottom of the passenger door, but not too bad. All glass but passenger d
  4. Howdy there, folks! My name is Rich, and I'm new to the forum. I'll start by saying that I'm very far from an expert on classic cars. Other than my '80 MGB, I don't own any project cars. Got it for my 40th birthday in 1992 (it wasn't even a classic then ), basically paid others to fix her up a little over the years. This is completely off my main topic, but I reckon it serves to show what a novice I am. My father recently passed away at age 91, and I guess you can say that I've been in a bit of a nostalgic mood as of late. Growing up, we loved our '55 Ford Country Squire. We neve

  6. Hey Guys, I have recently acquire a 1955 Oldsmobile Super 88 that is in need of restoration. For references sake, the car is located in Canada. I'm starting my initial research into parts availability, vendors, etc. that go with. The plan is that once the car is home, I'll be completing a frame up restoration on it to renew it to it's original condition. Timeline: 5 years. Part of the incentive behind this is that the vehicle was originally my great-grandfathers, so it has some family history behind it. I'm wondering what members recommend for some reading, recommended vendors for part
  7. Hello Everyone: It's Rich again. If anyone read my last forum thread (http://forums.aaca.org/f169/info-needed-55-ford-country-squire-383597.html), I have been searching for my father's 1955 Ford Country Squire. I received some information from a friend of mine who stated that it was common for classic cars to be shipped to Mexico (in the 1960s and '70s), and other nations. Does anyone know anything about this. Does anyone know where to find records of these type of transactions? Thanks!
  8. I received this through WPC Club Email, if anyone is interested please reply to him directly through the Email Link. Ian I have a set of four hubcaps for a 1955 DeSoto in very nice original condition. I would like to sell these at a reasonable price if someone in your group could use them. I was thinking $40.00 for the set plus shipping. I have pictures but they are too big for this format. I can be contacted at this email if there is any interest. Darrell Handley

  10. 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

  14. Hey fellow Buick lovers, Im proud to say I own a 1955 special with 80k on her and im the 3rd owner now. It has been a load of fun learning and working on it. In 1 day I got her running after 25 plus years of being stored in the garage. I did some research on non detergent oil also lead additive for the gas, put a new battery in after fresh fluids and she fired right up. Now after a few times around the block the clutch is slipping really bad. Do they make clutch kits for the 3 speed manual. I find kits but I have no clue the size or exactly what I need. And please feel free to give ti
  15. Dear Buick fans or any classic car lover, I am new to the classic's but knew id own one soon after seeing the special in movies like this boys life and dont tell mom the babysitter is dead. I finally just bought a 1955 Buick special 3 speed on the column with 80k miles on it. Since im in my 20s this older technology on this car is like my grandparents with my ipod, definitely takes reading and just getting under the hood. After not running for 25yrs I changed the battery, drained all fluids, bought new non detergent oil and an oil canister filter, put lead addictive in the gas & she fire
  16. We recently found in a remote site several Hudsons useful for restoration or as donor cars. One of the better ones discovered so far is a 1955 Hudson Hornet 4 dr that runs and drives. Good body but missing some glass. Between 1951 and 55 the Hudson Hornet accounted for 40 NASCAR wins. We hope someone will take this example home and restore it. Pick up in Denver or we can arrange shiipping. $3500.

  21. Hey guys I am new to the forum and just picked up a 1955 Century 4 door hard top. The nailhead is running good, but the transmission is missing so here is my question...... I have located a 56 dynaflow that was attached to a nailhead. Will it swap? I was told there may be a difference in the ATF cooling? Just wondering if it will work, I can get the 56 tranny for a good price. Thanks, Shon Elliott Lubbock, Texas
  22. Hey all! I am a bride-to-be from MA and I have always loved the "classic" cars of the 50's. In particular the 1955 Ford Thunderbird. I wanted to have my wedding photos to including a part of the 50's that I love so much so I wanted to rent a preferably red color exterior. I've been trying to do research and find someone who owns or a limo service that has an antique car for use. However, I cannot find any Ford Thunderbirds. Is there any where you guys would suggest looking or know of how to contact someone who does own one? My wedding is not for another 364 days so I have plenty of time
