WTB Stainless on Passenger rear qtr on 55 Buick Special 2drHT

Recommended Posts

I desperately need a nice restorable curved stainless piece over the wheel well for the passenger side rear quarter on a 1955 Special 2drHT 46R. I believe the same piece is on any 54-56 Special/Century 2drHT/Convertible, any 55-56 Special/Century 2dr Sedan, or any 55-56 Special/Century 4drHT.

I am also looking for the two bolts for the gas tank on the same models.

Thanks for any help on either of these items.

I have had to make the gas tank bolts in the past, and did so by taking a 5-6 inch long bolt, put it in a vise, heat it up with a torch, and bend the top of it into a hook that will fit in the slot under the car. Works perfectly, and no one knows the difference.

Thanks Pete. That should work. I appreciate your feedback. I just wish the stainless piece I am looking for was as easy to fabricate.

Have a great day. Tom

Ebay usually has these at pretty decent prices.

Thanks for the recommendation MrEarl. Believe me, I have been searching eBay night and day for the past month and have not found one for the passenger side for a Special/Century 2drHT/Convertible. I have found several for the driver side in various conditions and did manage to get a decent one. Thanks again and have a great day. Tom
