    Thanks man . I was hoping you would see it and approve. It has some rot in the lower areas, but nothing that can't be repaired with a little time and effort.

    Nice catch.. I didn't even see that one listed. I must have skipped too many days looking. Plus, I am in the middle of one now.
    Good luck on this cool build.
     
  11. Ghost, your A was an inspiration. If this one turns out that good it'll be very cool.

    I have a nice original Buick frame for that car if you need one.

    Very cool project!

    Nice pickup John. If it comes out half as good as the delivery, it will be killer. I vote Buick lights too...

    I would like to see a picture if it.

    It was classified as a roadster but the top didn't fold.

    It was only on there two days when he decided to keep it. I had to track him down after the add was deleted.

    THANKS MAN I remember your post on my thread. Did you ever convert your A.

    Hilborn injected. hmmm. Prolly a little too much for me especially on the street.

    I don't need the frame, but rear fenders and splash aprons would be helpfull.

    This should be a fun build. I sold a body very much like that at a Bandimere swap meet a couple years back. I was 2/3 of a tub, cowl & ft doors & rear part of the tub. My guess was that it was Buick or Packard. Got lots of guesses on the make.

    It will be nice to see a non-Ford with fenders and hood in a sea of fenderless, hoodless Model As and 32 Fords! Looks like it will be a cool little car!

    I had a 26 buick 2 door sedan awhile back, but I never saw or heard of a roadster until this became available.

    Hey Ben. Good to hear from ya, give advise anytime you want to my friend. I am excited about this one.

    A great offbeat project. Love the old Buicks. when I was in high school my buddy Lance's father had a 28 touring car. We rode it to school for a few months. His father bought it new. This was in 1957 when we rode to school in it. Looking forward to following your build.

    Looks like it might have more leg room than a 26/27 T roadster. Even an inch makes a big difference.

    Neat story old cars make you remember cool history.

    I checked out the leg room and there is lots more than the ts, as long as I don't have to mess with the firewall, even my old knees and legs should fold up and then stretch out for a fun filled ride.
     
  26. cool old piece of metal

    Are they rare or something? Seeing how nice that cowl piece is makes me wonder why ive never seen one :)
    Good of you for chosing something diffrent.
     
  29. "NONAME" here on the HAMB had a 20s Buick roadster project back in the 90s...very nice lines.
    I had a pair of old Buick tailights...said Buick in the lens. Sold them at a local swap meet.
