  1. There is a Buick owner near the N.W. Coast who I correspond with that has a Roadmaster 76R parts car and has been trying to create an account on this Forum for a couple of months with no success. I know that he sold the front seat out of it already. I do not know what he has left or what shape things are in. Just trying to help him out. If anybody is interested in parts or the entire car, shoot me a PM and I will send you his e-mail address. Thanx.
  2. Anybody else wondering what's going on? I've been corresponding with another Buick owner who is trying to create an account here and is having problems and getting no response from Jan after sending him a PM. Hard to believe it's been this long since the last post. Anyone have answers? Thanx.
  3. Here's a shot of the interior showing the column shift lever and lacking the PNDLR transmission speed ratio dial atop the steering column. Al Malachowski • BCA #8965 • "500 Miles West of Flint"
  4. That Skylark was listed for sale back in April 2017 and the write-up also noted it as 1 of 7 built . . . $135K . . . Vancouver, Washington-owner . . . less than 5,000 miles on the clock . . . with a red vinyl interior, black convertible top, and Arctic White paint job. That was a first that I heard of a 1954 Lark with a manual three-speed. If you know the owner's name or contact info, I'd appreciate hearing from you. There is supposedly one 1953 Skylark with a factory-installed manual transmission out there but I don't have an owner's name or production number for it in my 1953-1954 BUICK
  5. What's up with the off-set bumper / bumper guards? It looks like the bumper brackets are flipped/opposite of what they should be . . . if that's possible on a 1954.

  7. Why spend your money on a two-door coupe or four-door sedan? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1954-Buick-Roadmaster-Convertible/312326902076?hash=item48b822513c:g:~0gAAOSwl5Jb8dBA:rk:1:pf:0&vxp=mtr
  8. By studying this pic, one can really get a good idea when and why this was taken . . . - in late-October 1954, in Minnesota (7-digit 1954 license plate), - on a dreary, cold, and damp day (shiny blacktop road; sweaters and coats), and - nobody's smiling (tells you that the 1955 Buicks are due to hit the Showroom in a couple of weeks, on Monday, November 15, 1954, and the Buick Dealership is stuck with all the non-popular 1954 Black and White two and four-door sedans that didn't sell). HURRY. HURRY. HURRY. HAVE WE GOT A DEAL FOR YOU!

  10. I thought I would pass this along. There was a note in the latest '53-'54 SKYLARK CLUB NEWSLETTER that four 1:24 Skylark Models are in the works and pre-orders are being taken now. They are being made by AUTOMODELLO who office in the Chicago, IL area. The four different color choices noted include: Arctic White, Lido Green, Condor Yellow, and a non-standard two-tone (Cavalier Blue over Malibu Blue) combination. Check out the link for more info along with all the other Models they have to offer. http://www.automodello.com/category-s/146.htm
  11. Unless your new boot fastener spacing doesn't line up with your original Buick's screw/stud spacing on the stainless steel belt line molding, wouldn't it be easier to replace your smaller (6mm ø ?) screws/studs (lowest part in picture) rather than replacing the button cap (top part) and the socket (middle part)? A reamer could enlarge the holes in the belt line molding/backing fairly easily if necessary. What am I missing?
  12. I would measure the quantity of gear oil you're getting out of it before you toss it and compare it with the OE specs. If the rear wheel seals along with the gasketed areas fore and aft of the axle housing's center point don't show any signs of leakage, everything appears to be sealed up tight. It would be interesting to know whether you have the later-1954 style rear axle housing (my guess). Thanx.
