would it be too much to ask if you could possibly take some basic measurements of this subframe to give me a starting point to work from? It looks really nice!

NZ Buick,

Building a new wood frame is a major undertaking.    If Morgan is prepared to part with that frame he has, it could save you years of work.  The E49 body is a bit longer than the five seater,  but it could be adapted.  Otherwise,  the best way is to tacweld the body together to get the correct shape and then make lots of ply pattens of all the parts.

Thankyou very much for all of these photos! It gives me an idea of what I’m in for. I’m not trying to set any speed records with this restoration so am not really concerned that it will take me a great deal of time to piece something together it’s all part of the adventure in my opinion. Plus I don’t think it is a viable option to attempt to ship such a bulky item out to NZ and expect it to survive the journey.

Which panels are you after? I may have some that are salvageable.

Shipping odd shaped bits from USA can be horrendously expensive

Have not used them, but these guys have been used by others in NZ

Just to make sure my hood fits yours, I looked it up, and all E-H-K hoods for 6 cylinder are the same part number.
