Getting super frustrated trying to find parts for my 53 Olds. Since buying it I have found that the previous owner had "picked and pulled" quite a few items from the car. The number one aggravating thing is the starter and solenoid that I didn't notice was missing. Turns out, the starter is the first year for 12 Volt, and the last year that the engine had a certain number of teeth on the flywheel so it HAS to be a '53 starter. As for the solenoid, I can't buy anything new with a warranty, I have to buy a "NOS", one that may or may not work, with no recourse when it fails. Anyone have anything like this happen to you? I guess if I wanted an easy project I should have bought a Mustang!
