  1. 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 hold for a while...
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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 and red. Tonight, while messing around I decided to fire her up for a while. Bad leak still.. but I did notice another location leaking tranny fluid as well.. I saw it in the engine compartment towards the firewall where the block butts up against the tranny right above the starter. Seems to be pumping out from the seam between the block and tranny right next to an angle shaped plate!! I attached a photo of this area... Also, if anyone knows of an ol timer or one who could help me out around the Inland Empire area / Southern California it would be MUCH appreciated (shops e.t.c...). Jerrys 49
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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 remain. He started the restoration several years ago, but health problems prevent him from finishing it. The car is located in Livonia, Michigan (a little northwest of Detroit). I looked at the car a couple of days ago, and it's well worth completing, everything is there, and the work that has been done is good. He'd like to see someone finish it, and is asking $4500 or best offer. His name is Ken Vadnais and can be reached at 734-748-6557.

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
  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 separately. All of what I have for the air cleaner / silencer. Something holds this air cleaner element to the silencer (what covers that big hole in the bottom). View up inside the silencer part - expect long bolt goes through small hole. The air cleaner part. Hole in center looks like a lip to accept some sort of cap. Bracket on the intake manifold, bottom looking up, forwards to the left. Air cleaner sits on top of this.
  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 kits for the carburetor but no where can we find the upper portion to replace it. The current carb we have is complete just not fully functioning. If anyone has one for sale or knows someone who does it would be appreciated. I am totally out of ideas. We want to keep the car as original as possible. The Model is an A-22 or 22-A from what info I can find on it.
  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 removed and chromed recently. The carburetor has been removed so we can rebuild it. Any suggestions or information would be helpful. All the places that I have found that have classic Buick parts only go back to 1946.

  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 shifted it from underneath the car while running. It would not go into reverse at any position I put it in. I'm baffle! Please Help. Thanks
  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

  24. [h=3]This Little British car with a BBB has been on the road for a little over a year now and is currently in NC. I'd like to find a nice 1972 Buick Roadmaster to photograph along with our MG Roadmaster. Next week it will be in WV then continue a cross country tour over the summer. Below is a little info about this car. I know it's a stretch to post this on this message board but some of you may find it an interesting build. BritishV8 Enthusiasts Come Together to Complete a Magnificent Group Project[/h]The Roadmaster Project has largely been coordinated via a running thread on the BritishV8 message board. You can review the project's history and the car's continuing development here: "BritishV8 Forum / MG Sports Cars / MGB Roadmaster". The Roadmaster is currently on tour! You can monitor its progress from this message board thread: "BritishV8 Forum / MG Sports Cars / Roadmaster Events List". For further background information, here are two early articles about the Roadmaster Project: Roadmaster Status Report One and Roadmaster Status Report Two The photos in this "photo gallery" page were taken at or around Road Atlanta during "The Mitty" vintage car race over the April 27-29, 2012 weekend. High resolution originals of these photos are available for use in magazine articles and for other promotional purposes. Many additional detail and in-process photos are also available. Please note that ALL photos appearing on the BritishV8 website and message board are copyright protected unless specifically noted otherwise, so it's important that you contact us before publication. (It will only take a moment.) Please contact Curtis Jacobson via the "Contact" button at the top of this page for more information. MGB GT V8 - Roadmaster Project (explanatory side window decals) Towards the end of production the MG factory at Abingdon made available in the European market a V8 engine option for the MGB. To do so they used the smallest V8 engine ever produced by Buick, later sold to Rover, an all aluminum motor of 215 cu.in. or 3.5 liters. In keeping with that and American traditions, we of the British V8 community formed a Charitable Organization and built this car, taking the Buick/MG connection full circle by installing the largest Buick V8 engine ever produced, the mighty 455 Big Block. The cars final weight (under 2500 lbs) is 200 lbs more than average, half of that contributed by the engine. A front air ride suspension, custom bolt-in Jaguar IRS rear suspension and T5 transmission complete the drivetrain. Engine output is moderate at 500 hp and 500 ft/lbs, giving a horsepower to weight ratio of 5. The car displays the fine handling characteristics that the MGB was justly famous for, simply adding massive power to the mix, and by doing so epitomizes the GT or Grand Touring class. It is truly a master of the roads. The car is owned by the British American Deviant Automotive Sportscar Society, LLC (B.A.D.A.S.S.), which currently has upwards of 50 members, all of whom have contributed to this build. The project has been completed entirely by voluntary donations of time, components, supplies, parts, and money. It took under 5 years to complete. It will appear at the annual BritishV8 meets where rides can be taken. Between meets it will be on rotation amoung the contributors all around the country where it will be displayed at local schools, car meets, and other activities. Please feel free to look the car over. It has many nice custom touches not seen on regular production MGBs but remains true to the original concept, which is to take an established production model and increase performance and sporting potential.
