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.

PETE, the '57 wouldn't happen to have factory AC would it? You probably would have mentioned it if it did. I'm looking for the chromed plastic frame around the centre dash vent. Never hurts to ask.

I have a 1960 buick le sabre and I'm in need for the transmission fluid filler tube. Do you think I can swap it with your 1958? I've searched everywhere for the part and can't seem to find it.

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.

I have several of these control arms, N.O.S., part #1323033. Does it look like what you need? I cannot find the application in my parts book.

Hi Pete,

 

I sent you a PM.

I'm looking for a control knob for the driver side AC vent on my 1957 Roadmaster.
