  1. I just bought a '90 (i think) Reatta and among a few problems one is the radio. all the lights work but the antenna doesn't come up and the radio doesn't come on at all. an ideas?:confused: i haven't had a chance to take a look at the wiring, and would like to have an idea where to start to try and fix this. Driving with out radio sucks. Thanks!
  2. I have a 1950 Special Sedanette 4 door, that I have been flirting with selling for years and finally decided to let it go. My desire is that it go to a Buick officianado that won't cut it up or do the standard 350/350 mustang II or Camaro clip. It's a clean, straight, mostly original California car, ready for full restoration, or to cruise with just a little work. The grill is straight with a couple of minor dents and a little bit of light rust scale, basically ready for re-chrome. The body trim is all in good shape, One of the special logos is broken, and it's missing the original headlight rings, and the plastic inserts for the trunk badge. It has a bad 90's gray/silver metallic paint job, but was originally that Buick Robin's Egg Blue color that peeks out in certain spots i.e. the engine compartment and the rims with original white pin stripes. The interior is reasonably clean with the seats covered in a semi-period correct aftermarket blue gray tweed. The dash and interior is painted well with the same metallic gray, all gauges, vents, etc., work, the sonomatic radio does not probably needs to be re-tubed. It has all original running gear and is still 6 volt, with the long deep battery. The car ran superbly up until the last year, it had an engine rebuild in the early 90s, and then when I purchased it a leaky radiator caused a blown head gasket for the previous owner. I had the head done with hardened valve guides and seats by an excellent old school machine shop and had the radiator that caused the problem rebuilt. It was driven occasionally on weekends by my uncle until the last year when he became sick. It's a smooth runner that would require maybe a weekend to throw a new battery in, a carb rebuild, some fresh tires, then cruise. I believe I'm basically the 3rd owner and have a briefcase in the car full of old registration slips original glove box literature (including the manual for the hood release church key) and the shop bible for the year 1950. I have no idea the value because it's such a weird car, but I'm asking $11,000. Thank you, for your consideration. I really hope this car ends up with the right guy!
  3. I got the Buick home from storage in town. Put in the NOS headlight switch, got the rebuilt radio and clock in, they work good, as does the speedometer I had rebuilt last fall. GOt it back in before putting it in storage. Nice to have everything working. BUT the power steering pump was sorta noisy, was low on fluid, so hope that takes care of that. Now if it will just warm up for some crusin'. What happened to 'global warming'? Bypassed Nebraska.

  5. I am looking for a mopar 805 or 810 radio. Not a great one just a core. Not working is fine. Thank you.
  6. HI all, Im hoping one of you guys will have a 46, 47 or 48 radio taken out of a car. Can you please measure the 3 dimensions shown in the attached photo and labeled "A", "B" and "C" and let me know ? I bought a 49 Radio Model 980782 in the USA, had it converted to FM and imported it for my 46 car. The person doing the conversion told me the 49 radio, although it had a different color dial and knobs, would fit in my 46 car. Now I try to fit it and find that shafts where the nuts attach behind the volume control and the tuning control, are too short and do not come out through the chrome plated dash trim enough to be able to attach the nuts. The 46, 47 and 48 cars all used the chrome radio grill but the 49 car did not so I'm guessing the 49 radio may be slightly different. The measurements from a 46 to 48 radio will help me find out. Thank you !!
  7. Anyone out there know how to get a 1949 clock and Sonamatic Am Radio in working order? I noticed on the back of my clock that a prior owner has removed the wire from it's port. Not sure why. I located a lone wire and assumed it was for the clock so I plugged it in.. clock still doesn't work. Fuses are all good on the fuse panel- I replaced them. The light for the clock is working.. all my dash lights work. As far as the radio goes, the only thing I can think of is perhaps there is a bad tube or tubes since it doesn't even turn on.. I would be happy if I can get the clock and radio to work. Jerry 1949 Buick Roadmaster 4 Door
  8. My radio doesn't work and I need to replace it. What aftermarket radios would fit and what modifications would have to be made to install? Thanks
  9. I am looking to put the finishing touches on a car my dad restored, first priority for me is a radio Also need the buick emblem on the bottem of the front bumper and in a perfect world I would even replace the top peice of the grill were it says Buick. Any suggestions to other sites or trusted dealers would be great, wish I could say I knew more about the car and how to fix/maintain it but I was pretty young when I put my time into it( hours and hours of sandblasting rusty parts) and didn't pay enough attention when I got older and my dad was still around so now I am a novice with this awsome car and I would really like to learn everthing I can about it so I can see my dads dream of having it fully restored a reality. It runs great, he completed all the engine work and event drove it on several road trips but the body never made it past the primer stage.
  10. I'm looking for two Buick Radio knobs. I believe the style I want comes from a 46-48 vehicle. They are the knobs that look like this --http://www.conceptcarz.com/view/photo/424802,11291,0,0/photo.aspx They are made of bakelite or some other plastic. I'm somewhat flexible on color, but prefer a creme, gold/tan... Thank you for looking!
  11. I am looking for knobs for a 1940 radio. Bobs has 1937 and 1938 knobs, but nothing for 1940. Also, I need information about a radio arial for 1940.
  12. Hey all, I am looking for a new antenna mast for my TC. We have a Chrysler dealership in the family. So, I asked them to check into it to see if I could get a replacement from Chrysler. The antenna no longer goes up and down, but I can hear the motor working fine. So, I'm assuming the teeth inside the mast have broken off from old age. The dealership said Chrysler no longer stocks these for the TC anymore. They do carry the LeBaron's, but they are not the same part number. Anyone know where I could get one relatively inexpensively? I want it to match the original in height and appearance at least, but I don't want to go to the expense of buying a whole new assembly as I only need the mast. Any suggestions?
  13. Forgive me if this is a redundant question, but I was hoping for some clarification... I'm bypassing the audio set-up in my 89 and installing a completely separate system. I'm currently working on wiring the head-unit, but am unsure of which wires to use. I believe I see three different harnesses connected to the module ( one blue, one white, and one black - each with there own set of wires). Basically, I'm looking for help on which are the correct wires to connect to my aftermarket receiver. I'm running patch cables to the amps, so really I'd like input on the power ignition wire, power battery wire, and ground. I see the pin # configurations on the module, but was still unclear. I'd like for the new system to power on when the car starts, and was afraid that if I used a wire from the wrong auxilary without knowing, I might have to hit play on the CRT everytime I want it to work. Thanks in advance, Justin
  14. Since my factory speakers are at the end of their life, I'm on a mission to upgrade the entire audio system in my Reatta. I've purchased new front & rear speakers, and I have a sub-box from a Yukon that was given away via Cash 4 Clunkers (the box can really kick, and I've already got the amps as well). My plan is to throw it in the trunk and remove the "trunk/car access door" and replace it with a wooden frame and the same lining that is already covering the rear speaker grills. I'm pretty excited about the new sound, however, I am looking for some advice for the gurus... Best case scenerio, I'd love to upgrade the source to really take advantage of the audio quality. My Reatta is an 89, so I really want to avoid messing with the dash electronics as much as possible... does anyone have any ideas/ reccomendations/ warnings??? One idea was to see if it was possible to leave all of the climate/diagnostics/etc attached to the CRT screen and have a seperate external/iPod source for audio off of the touch screen. If not, maybe finding a way to mount an aftermarket head unit in addition to the CRT screen. The main objective here is the best quality sound and taking advantage of the equipment I already own. If any help /guidance/ fore-warnings can be given, I'd be grateful. Thanks in advance Justin
  15. The best way to get a "hit" would be to post the model numbers. For instance, my 1962 Studebaker GT Hawk came with an AC Delco AC3305. I suspect people will know model numbers better than pictures.
  16. I need a radio for a 1940 Oldsmobile Series 70 4-Door Sedan, OR any other equivalent. I have searched all over the internet and can't find anything. Much Appreciated, -Fin
