  1. I have several parts to a 1953 buick roadmaster many will also fit a buick skylark, I have two hoods, two trunk, two pairs of fenders, doors, bumpers, entire dash board including instrument clusters. Hood ornaments are sold seperately from hoods, multiple trim pieces, all are used not NOS but in very good shape slight surface rust no rot or pit on pieces. Also have many parts for a 1938 buick coupe special 40, contact me for more information on coupe
  2. The car did arrive. Nice to have finally found one more or less local. I think this one was about 60 miles up the road, maybe 70. The owner had to come to Tucson for the title, so he just brought the car as well! It was an original Tucson car - spent first 30 years or so around here. The guy I got it from bought it about 30 years ago and had it in Nogales, AZ (Mexican border). He's to the point where he couldn't see getting around to fixing this one up, and his preference is Lincolns, so this Buick needed to go. Given my situation with the other cars, the plan is this will probably be on
  3. Has anyone here had experience with an A/C on a 320 straight-eight? I have seen an after-market A/C installed in at least one Roadmaster before but have never heard how it worked. I would think it would be a heavy load on the motor and might not cool very well while overheating the engine. There is room for it under the hood apparently. I live in Houston and the A/C is much needed.
  4. Good morning, My 96 Roadmaster Estate is missing her ambient temp sensor. So the HVAC is out of whack. These ambient temp sensors are very hard to find. GM is out, so is Rock Auto etc. etc. Do you have any idea where I might find one? thanks for your help. Bob Judd
  5. My new 96 Roadmaster Estate (63,000 miles) arrived with a couple of electrical problems. The courtesy lights will not turn off. The speedometer does not work (the odo works fine) Any tips or suggestions much appreciated.
  6. Ok. So my '49 roadmaster has been fine and real fun to drive. I now have an excessive transmission leak though. Sucks! It happened when I accidentally shifted into low gear at around 30MPH. Once I got home I noticed the massive amount of bleeding coming from the transmission. It seems to be leaking from the front (I know.. bad news) of the tranny and you can see the fluid spewing out from the bellhousing cover. I removed the cover and the inspection plate, checked my drain plugs on the torque converter and they seem nice and snug. Red tranny fluid noticeable on the flywheel.. The fluid is nice
  7. In september last year MattZ. Started a thread about eventually buying à 1950 Buick Roadmaster Convertible. Does anyone Know how to get in toutch with him? Im Searching for à car like that.
  8. Not mine. Harrison # 3123757 These radiators are hard to come by so I thought I would post this from Craiglist (http://buffalo.craigslist.org/pts/4832192761.html) The sellers name is Ray. Can be reached at: 716-783-1572
  9. I'm passing this information along for anyone interested in completing a restoration. The owner has owned this car for over 30 years and has completely restored the chassis and power train with all new or rebuilt items. Engine completely rebuilt, as well as transmission, suspension, brakes, etc. He has all the parts from the car to make the car complete, with much new material such as new original upholstery, all new glass, radiator, floor mats, even the paint. Chrome bumpers and guards have been re-plated. Some of the body work has been completed with new metal, but some rust areas remai
  10. The silencer / air cleaner on my '51 76R is missing something. Probably some sort of isolator between the manifold bracket and the bottom of the air cleaner element, and some sort of "cap" for the bottom of the air cleaner element (or maybe this missing thing is all-in-one), and the long bolt that goes through it all. Anyone have photos of this? Anyone have one of these that you could part with? I put '50-'51 in the subject because that's what the parts book shows for the silencer. I wouldn't be surprised if this "cap" and bolt are across many years, but I couldn't find those listed out
  11. I am looking for a Stromberg Aerotype Carburetor for a 1937 Buick Roadmaster Series 80. It has the Fireball 320 ci Inline 8. My grandpa and I have looked everywhere to find parts for this thing and are not having any luck. The car was parked 12 years ago because the carburetor is to blame for it not running very good. The previous owner bypassed the auto-choke by bending the lever that connects the mechanism to that part of the carburetor. He installed a manual choke in order to get it to run. We wish to return it to factory original. We have found a couple of places that sell rebuild k
  12. We are in the process of working on a 1937 Buick Roadmaster Series 80 trying to get it road ready so we can enjoy it. I am having problems finding parts anywhere for something this old. We would would prefer OEM parts that look original on this car. From what we know everything on the car is factory. There are a couple things missing, nothing major. As we drive the car we will need certain things to keep it on the road. I posted some images of the car in my profile gallery. Some of the things that appear to be missing like the carburetor and bumpers are not. The bumpers were re

  14. The interchange book I have isn't so great. I need to invest in one of the "good" ones. But for those of you with a good one, can you tell me if the headliner bows for the 1951 76R (2-door hardtop) will interchange with those from the 1952 Super 2-door hardtop? Same question - for the stainless trim that is visible inside the headliner at each bow? Thanks!
  15. With any luck, the car attached to this data plate will be in my garage tomorrow... If so, there will be another "Me & My" thread...
  16. Seeking 1953 Roadmaster 2dr front fenders (Left #1318899 and Right #1318898)
  17. Hey folks, I have a 1953 Buick Roadmaster that will not go into reverse. It was having trouble locking into Park. I found that the linkage was bent. As part of the service, I drained the fluid, dropped the pan and cleaned it and the screen. I did not drain the torque converter but I did let the transmission drip into a pan for a week or so, flipping the shift lever from time to time to release more fluid from the valve. I replaced the pan and fluid and set the linkage as per the manual. I now have Park, Drive and Low only. I disconnected the linkage, started the car on the lift and shift
  18. MrEarl recommended that I post a link to my restoration website and blog: http://www.bessythebuick.com/ Really excited about this project! So far, I've had good luck locating needed parts and received excellent guidance from the Buick community locally (Colorado) as well as nationally. Good folks all around:) Thanks, Jeff
