My uncle told me about a 4 door 55 thats mostly complete for $300. We went this morning and sure enough, there it was. I seen the perfect fender tops and how much was there and NOW I OWN IT!!! arty0031: The trunk lid has ZERO rust and it looks pretty straight too! Its still got the motor and trans in it but the rear end is gone. The leafs are still on it. I'm taking a rear end and tires and wheels next saturday to bring it to a buddys house for storage. He said he had a bunch of spare parts in his barn I could go through when I come back next saturday. There still out there guys, ya just got to get out and look.
Hafrod, really happy to see you've found another trifive to save from the heapyard, but I sure hope this doesn't mean your Buick is going to the back burner again, I'd love to see that one when you finish it and look forward to it...
I have so many boxes of parts, I went through most of them yesterday. I found new front and rear brake shoes, front wheel cylinder kits, fairly new front brake hoses, and just lots of little tidbits. I just traded for a set of 14x7 American Racing Outlaws (look like a solid styled Centerline). I have a brand new set of 14 in Firestone tires that I've never found anything to put them on till now! I got my big box of lug nuts out and had a brand new set of chrome lug nuts. I found stuff that I forgot I had. Gonna be another spare parts built car. I think my biggest find was a 210 sterring wheel horn ring and cap. The chrome on the ring is VERY nice.
