    have not posted in a few months on buick progress so here is the final pics of completed car. still looking for a few minor parts but it drives and runs great for a car that sat for 41yrs in a barn.

  6. John, my 1950 41D is more or less done. Always something, though. Have done a couple things that are not HAMB friendly. So do not talk about it much here . wanting to do a 263 "hop up" if finances would cooperate.

    I too know about the money thing, I would like to add a 2 duce carb setup to my 263 and split exaust, my car will never be a stock show car, the other site did not seem to like the direction I was going so I kind of quit checking in.could have just been me.

    Thats a dandy looking Buick! I like the simple additions that make it stand out. It looks like the oem 53 Buick wire hubcaps, what did you use for centers? I like em!!

    Good job, John ! Buicks are always cool...and a split manifold on the 263 will sound spot-on !!
