Regarding your tire question: I went with Coker 820 X 15 US Royal 2 3/4 White Wall which was the closest I could find with the correct white wall width and a "brand name" that was available .

A friend of mine bought the US Royals for his '57 Caddy convertible and there's something I couldn't understand. The tread design is not correct for the Safety 800. That design is for the Safety 8. I wonder why they did this? Copyright??

I'm guessing no one is reproducing the parking lamp lenses. Mirko if there is enough demand for reproduction lenses, you might be able to fund the restoration of your car by making them for others.

Good morning, i'm looking for a correct carburetor, 59-60 Carter afb. Can we help me?

Thanks Mirko

 

Miko,

 

According to this website, your car uses a Carter AFB, #2840.  Jon, the owner, also lists this number for sale from his inventory.

 

Love your work and your posts.  I'd say something but your work leaves me speechless.

 

Here's the link to the Carburetor Shop in Eldon, Missouri, USA.  Jon Hardgrove is the owner.  He's a great guy to work with.  This link is to the carburetors he's listing for sale.  His contact information is on the home page. Good luck.

Mr Tom, if my car is fabulous is merit of his guide patience and courtesy for having responded to my every mail in which i asked her questions. I don't know if I can never thank her in person but i will always be in debt with you.

Thanks Mirko.

Mirko,

You need to post the "before" picture of this car to really show the difference and your wonderful skills as a true craftsman and fabricator extraordinaire! Thanks for sharing the progress of the restoration -- I hope another Buick is in your future!
