1955, 1957, and 1958 parts cars--what do you need?


Recommended Posts

Got a '55 model 66-R parts car yesterday, to add to the '57 and the '58. The '55 has a good body but no doors, no glass, a stuck 322 V-8, Dynaflow, power brakes, no interior other than the dashboard. Let me know if you need anything.

There are about 5 or 6 different back glasses and windshield for 1957 Buicks. Can't help you until you tell me what series and what body style you have. Mine is a 57 Super 4-dr. hardtop with the one piece back glass. I have some '57 Special/Century rear corners, and have a good one-piece back glass on the '58 Special 4-dr. hardtop.

What four door hardtop the 58' is? I'm looking for the chrome piece that is on the top of the left rear wheelwell.It is the piece that continues the chrome strip from the...Ahh...Picture says more than a million words (near the rear wheel you can see one small chrome piece missing):

I'm looking for that chrome piece and I know that the Roadmaster and Super had the same.

 

With best regards,

The '57 transmission filler tube attaches to the middle of the pass. side exhaust manifold, where there is a threaded bolt hole. I don't think it would work on your '60 very well unless you wired it to the exhaust manifold, which would look bad.

I have two dash lights, with wiring, bulbs, connectors, and the dashboard switch, $20 plus postage. When you say "upper wishbone" I assume you mean the upper control arm on the front suspension? The car has that, but I won't be able to move or steer the car after that is gone. I can give you the name of a salvage yard that has one. I may have a new old stock one at home-- will look tonight.

Mr Phillips,

I am in need of a complete differential carrier with serviceable gears  from a 1955 automatic. It is for use in my 1941 Roadmaster.

Thanks Stig Rusten

Update : I have got hold of a differential from a 54 , so the problem is solved! Thanks!
