The Jalopy Journal
I have found everything you need to know, PLUS on V8Buick.com. In fact, I'm now considering other options for my '65 Riv as to do a nailhead...
I probably will end up keeping mine, too. I know this thread is a bit old but was wondering if you ever put shocks on the front of yours. Mine has...
Glad that you're still enjoying the fruits of your labor.
I'm guessing an axle flip in the back, dropped axle front. I like the steelies much better, too.
I'm a little late on this conversation but if you haven't found your manual yet I got mine from books4cars.com/ebay for 39.95 with free shipping....
These are what I used on my first bag system and they've been working fine for 2 1/2 years....
Great catch and it looks like the kids love it too.
I agree with Butch; go to Chevytalk.org. They also have a classified add section just for the '49-54's. I gave my '54 driveline away through that...
In your first batch of photos it still has the leaf springs; did you do bags & leafs?
The bird looks absolutely first rate.
As a helper spring, 5lbs or enough to keep the bag from collapsing would be sufficient.
I guess you guys missed this one from a couple pages back.
I have seen another one also; I will find that photo too.
It had the Olds dash & steering column. I'll see if I can find the photo.
The side trim?
I've been running them on my peekup for 12 years.
You did a great job putting that thing back together and finishing it.
The body on that 'big window' looks to be in pretty good shape. Have you had it long?
You lay down a nice bead, too.
Beautiful car 40LUV.
A couple pics of my most recent project.
Looks fine to me! 'Course it could be a bit lower.
Thanks for the pic's. Some neat stuff to see there. My brother is a volunteer at Marymount and we've been through that together when I was...
I like the hubcaps on the 'vette. I found some (7) for my project and all but 1 need some massaging and chrome. Then I found out that they were...
Glad to see you still have the car, and the desire.
Looks good in it's new suit. Nice work!
Thanx much for the input; great info.
Could you elaborate on that a little? What is a Ford C-series, what year were they produced, etc.,. Pardon my ignorance.
Good to see you making progress again. I just finished putting a new windshield in my '54 sed del; it took me 2 days! And I still have to do the...
I'm suprised that Blackie doesn't have something going on. He says
Fresno is a great place to live. Maybe he's to busy going to the big shows out...
Baumi, you really scored with that one! I looks just like the first one I ever drove back in the early '70's. The amount of work Gert put in it is...
I think mine was also the original rubber; I started cutting it with a dull hook billed knife and it just kept breaking apart but was tuff. I then...
