Dan if you really decide to go with another fender...PM me and i can get it for you.
nice car !cant wait to see what you do to it.
Love those cars with a passion.
There is a guy in mid america who only works on 40 and 41 Buicks, and has tons of parts. I got parts for a 1940 Roadmaster from him.
I will get his number at the shop tomorrow and post it.
nice buick, be nice to hide a 425 nailhead in it, make a good sleeper
Yeah Robert, I remember and Im sure too that Dan will treat her right.
That car is killer!!!! I hope to have a 41 Sedanette one day.
hey Orn I think I've seen pics of your buick with cragars on it and a fulton visor?....cool deal man, I have some friends in Sweden with old cars and bikes, I guess you guys have lots of downtime to work on them over the winters huh? Thanks for the leads any of you can give me in advance, mine, my wifes Century needs lots of small parts replaced. All the plastic on hers is nasty.
Can't wait to see what you do with it Dan. I have really liked all of your builds. They keep getting better!
Thats right Dan; we have some of that white shit over here as you can see on the pics. Good luck with your 41 and please post some photos along the way.
heey Orn, how is your buick lowered?
Dan, I have airbags all around and a 77 Caprice rear axle with tri 4link. The Caprice rear is a perfect match concerning the width.
Dan. How many more times are you going to make me hate you???? I guess I will be seeing this in Bob's parking lot come this Friday. I have the day off coming up and you better be there with it so I can shed a tear over it. KNUX!
Minor setback on the fender I'd say...
If I'd let a car roll out of my driveway, with my luck it'd probably T-bone the truck that's always parked across from my drive and simultaneously get T-boned itself by a trash truck, or something like that.
Now, don't go unhooking both side hood latches at the same time and go for a "test drive"..
Dan, if not that, then drive Tiff's car...hehe! KNUX!
Love those fastbacks. Bring it to the Buick Show in Glendale CA on May 3rd. More info at www.OLDPL8S.com
I LOVE THESE CARS!!
I tried to trade my '29 tub for a white one many years ago at The James Dean Run. The guy was tempted but I couldn't get him to commit.
Lee Pratt's Buick is a gem.
Keep us posted on your progress.

Ah , That's one Cool ride. If the stock engine ever gives out you could swap in a really-cool look'n 'Nailhead'.
nice car my dad a a 4 door fastback with the fireball dual carb engine. i loved that thing it rode sooo smooth
'41 Buick sedanettes are on my short list. LOVE them. If it was mine, I'd lower it and make it as cherry as I could -- stock hubcaps, no skirts.
i'd bomb the shit of that
I've never see one like that! It's so cool...................
I'm with you, '41's rock
this is kinda the vibe I'm goin for.....
Looks great. I had the thought a while back that skirts and fastbacks were kinda developed together. They came into existence around the same time, and while there are coupes and convertibles that look pretty good with skirts, I think they look their best on fastbacks.
Looks real slick with the skirts. I have a set of of '47 Buick Skirts, but not the '47 Buick Fast Back Super 8 that came with them...
Nice buy! Your gonna love it. That's easy for me to say though... I've owned about a dozen Buicks through the years.
is it true Mr. Badwrench is back together?
haha, way to de-rail the thread Evel! we have a reunion show may 1st at Safari Sams, but no plans after that yet....
