Made another trip to the junkyard


Recommended Posts

I’ve been going to this junkyard for odds and ends for my ‘52 and ‘53 Specials. There are still some good parts on these ‘50s era Buicks. A shame to see them going to waste.

Those ‘53 convertibles are Roadmaster and Special. Unfortunately the driver side door from the Special wasn’t usable for my coupe, too far gone. The top bows are there with the exception of the leading edge of sheet metal.

Rusty Heaps, grab that '58 upper grille bar extension! Those are impossible to find in undamaged condition. If you don't want it, I do!

As hard to come by as ‘ 53 Special upper grill bars? I’m happy to look and scavenge for parts whenever I go. If I can help fellow old car nuts when I’m trying to rescue my own, then so much the better. I’ll grab what I can, just let me know.

Grab the center grill and badge bar off the 57 Buick before some hick kicks the nice chrome teeth in and it has a good windshield as well.  Also, the bumper assembly on those 53 Buicks are all there and intact as well.  Edit: Oh if the owner is very reasonable you could always flip the parts either here or on sneeze bay for extra cash.  Stock up - Cash out.
