  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. I'm looking for a front left fender for a very close friend's immaculate 1992 Buick Century Custom Coupe. Unfortunately a deer did (thankfully) minor damage and I am having trouble locating a fender - NOS or aftermarket (not particular) that I can shoot for paint. It's a beautiful 40,000 mile car, treasured by its owner and very close friend. Any leads are most appreciated; many thanks in advanced. I can be reached at: 860-782-1554 or Private Messaged.
  3. I need the aluminum trim piece that wraps the speedometer, clock, radio. Has to come out of 56 Century. I don't think it was on the Special dash, but if it were, that will work too.
  4. 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
  5. Hello All! Elise here. I have a very basic working knowledge of cars, picked up from friends along the way, but I am diving right in with my lovely lady. We had a wonderful ride last Saturday, and then again a couple of days ago... but that is when she revealed to me that she needed some assistance. Water everywhere upon stopping, and then after starting once, refused and sent fuel running from the carb. (I do suspect that the gent who put the water in the radiator for me may have simply flooded her, but I have been advised I should rebuild the carb). She did finally start again after a few taps to the carb, and I rushed her home...where she dumped water all over the street again, poor girl. A friend from a local custom shop stopped by and pointed out that the water seemed to be coming from the pump and that I should begin looking for a replacement. She is now safely in my back yard and Im now looking to learn all I can and find the appropriate parts to get her fixed up and running about again. I am located in Las Vegas and was hoping that I might be able to find some kind gents out there who I could ask questions of. I would like to know my girl and how she operates, rather than just take her to a mechanic and have them fix her up for me, so any assistance anyone would be willing to help with would be much appreciated! :-) I will be taking some more photos tomorrow of the engine compartment... as Ive been looking through the internet Ive seen something in photos that seem to be in another place in my car... lol ... could be I just do not know enough and am mistaken... but I hope someone out there will be able to assist, or suggest other sites that could be helpful. 'Looking forward to learning more, and already enjoying the existing posts here on the site. Many thanks for the interesting reading thus far, and in advance for future ones! Miss E (Elise)
  6. This is a solid convertible that has been in my garage for the past 16 years, only 5558 produced. The engine is complete and turns over, the transmission was apart when I bought the car but I have a '56 Super dynaflow that goes with the car. The engine and transmission are now in the car (new torque ball kit installed and new front motor mounts). Body is pretty solid needs drivers floor pan, included and floor patched under rear seat. Doors are rust free (Passenger door has had dents pulled out). Driver’s front fender is rust free and Passenger fender has small amount at headlight chrome. Trunk and Trunk lid are rust free. Frame and body mounts look good (have pictures that I can send). The front header bow is rusted and the convertible seats and rear arm rests were gone when I bought the car. I have original driver’s door panel and rear quarter panels, hardtop seats and panels go with car. Send me a PM and I will be able to give more Photos of the car and any items that I know are missing.
  7. Hi guys, can anyone out there help me please. I suspect my fuel sender unit is faulty as the gauge intermittently tells me it's either empty or full and nowhere in between, which is not very useful. Can I get at the unit without dropping the tank ? I'm not sure where to look.

  12. I have a large collection of parts from a 1955 Buick Century Estate Wagon that came from a parts car. Includes 4 doors, rear window, two sets of interior trim, air cleaner, spark plug wire covers, dashboard, Dynaflow transmission, rear end, gauges, and many more small parts. It would take two 1/2 ton trucks to carry it all away. I would prefer to sell all the parts to one good home, but if there is something specific you need we can negociate a good price.

  14. Hello! New to the forum and trying to sell my 55' 4 door, red and white Buick Century! V8 322 nail head rebuilt carburetor Aprox 87,000 miles but the engine may have been rebuilt at some point runs GREAT It was newly painted about 8 years ago and has been mostly garaged since. It runs great, I've never had any issues with it, besides the usual Buick problems. I'll be honest, the interior is trashed except the headliner, was when I bought it but I just don't have the money to make it the way I'd like. I wanted to keep it original so it was repainted the original color Cherokee Red and White. I paid a lot for the paint job! Too much. So naturally I would like to make some sort of profit. Right now I'm asking $10,000 which I realize is probably pretty ambitious but I'll take best offer. If I had the money I'd love to keep it and make it the way I want but I just had a baby and well, priorities change and we need the money so I need to get rid of it fast. Please message me if you're interested. Alicia Denver CO 720-917-5052

  16. I see no evidence from period photographs or any of the 1954 color charts that Buick offered their Century convertible with a two-tone paint scheme (divided by the sweep spear). They all appear to be monotone. Can any Buick experts confirm this? Thanks.
  17. Hi! I am looking for a 1957 Buick Special or Century Two Door Hardtop for my next project. If possible it should be a complete car, and I prefer one in reasonable - to good condition. Project cars will also be considered. I am also interessted in information about cars, that could lead to a possible deal. A tip that lead to a deal will be rewarded. The car will be shipped to Tempe AZ, where it will be rebuilt. Buick - Power and Silence
