  1. HI all, This is the ongoing restoration of my 58 Buick Century Riviera in Sri Lanka. It is the only such car known to be in Sri Lanka. If this car was in USA, it would be considered a scrap car. Not even a parts car. However, we are not allowed to import any vehicle over 2 years old into Sri Lanka, so importing a classic is not possible. All we can do, is restore the cars already existing in Sri Lanka, no matter how bad they are and what it costs. Hope you folks find the restoration interesting. Looking forward to comments.
  2. To Whom It May Concern The owners of a rare 1958 Studebaker Champion are looking to sell the vehicle and were wondering if any members here would be interested or know of anybody who may be? The vehicle is an absolute one-of-a-kind and incomparable with any restored vehicle. It has original factory plastic on the seats and has done just 75 miles - it is a brand new vehicle with an intriguing back story of a jilted lover which led to the vehicle being stored for the past 57 years. If anybody is interested in purchasing this vehicle, or might know of somebody, would you please respond to a
  3. In the course of my business, I found someone who has 4 1957 Lincoln Premieres. They are all hardtops, appear to have been abandoned & would need restoration. They look OK for restoration to me, but I am no authority. Owners daughter suggeted that they could be taken for free. No idea on license status. They belonged to her late father. All are on the same lot, near San Jose, CA. markagoodman@sbcglobal.net

  6. I was out cruising around in my '58 Super and everything was just fine. Got home, backed it into the garage and closed shop. The next day I needed to move it and when I tried to start it it fired up then began to idle rough and finally died. Next try nothing. Just turned over and over. Next day I tried it again and same result, except it would not run at all, just tried for a few seconds and died once. Then nothing. Sprayed starting fluid into the carb and tried again, but no response when I tried to start it again. Checked spark at coil output, fair. Checked for spark at plugs, one short spar
  7. I've found a 58 hardtop project car but the front seat is missing. Is any other Buick/GM front seat frame/spring assembly the same as a 58 Century 4-door hardtop seat? From looking at pictures, I would guess that the 57 Olds and Buick "B" bodies shared a common seat frame, but I'd like to be more certain before I buy a seat. I have searched this forum but can't find an answer; hope someone can help me out. Thanks! JoeT

  9. 1958 Buick Estate Wagon: The motor is back and most everything is going together very nicely. Except the throttle linkages. In the manual it show a "bit" that connects the equalizer shaft going down to the lower lever that connects to the gas pedal. I appear to be missing this piece. Does it bolt to something? Does anyone have any pictures of what the whole hook up looks like? Does anyone have an extra "whatever I'm missing" part? Willing to buy it. I'm also missing the downdraft tube from the engine (was never there). Look forward to any help on this one. Cheers Michael.

  14. I have a 1958 Chevy Del Ray, and I pulled the old 235 L6 out of it because it was locked up, and replaced it with a rebuilt 1969 Chevy 307 out of a '69 El Camino. I am having a hard time understanding how to put the clutch linkage back together. I have to change the bell housing on the transmission. I should also note that I am using the original 3 speed manual transmission that was in the car. The question I have, is will the original clutch linkage work in this application? Any help would be appreciated!
  15. I have a 1958 Chevy Delray that originally came with a 235 straight 6. The old motor was shot when I got the car, pretty much rusted solid. I have a 1969 Chevy 307 V8 that runs great, but now that I am trying to bolt the trans up to the engine, everything seems to line up, but I cannot get the transmission to push up to the engine far enough to bolt it together. I put a new pilot bushing in the crank since the engine was originally set up for an automatic, and did not have one installed. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
  16. This car is complete and is in good restorable condition. Price is $6,000. To view additional photos, go to www.oldcars.fotki.com Delivery is available.
  17. My friend have a buick special -58 that we have tried to fix the main brake cylinder on. We replaced the "piston" and gaskets and made a hening/grinding (don't really know the english word) of the cylinder to get rid of rust and scratches. This all took about a year because of other things coming in the way... So when we finally had got it together again and had put out the air the brakes worked just fine! But as you press the pedal it won't go up itself after you have taken the foot of it. How is it supposed to go up? Can we have missed some part or what have we done wrong? Regards Eddie La
  18. Year: 1958 Make: Plymouth Model: Savoy Price: $2500 Location: Elysburg, PA, USA Contact Information: Scott Kramer, PM if interested Description: I'm putting "Sharona" up for sale. She's a black and white 58 Plymouth Savoy, 4 door sedan, 318 Engine, and has the usual spots of rust (headlights, rockers), but would be a great starting point for someones project car. I've been trying to get her running again after sitting for 15 years in my friends garage, but haven't had any luck. I wanted hear her run again before I sold her, but I don't have the time or expertise to troubleshoot the problem.
