  1. We want the 1954 Buick Forum to be a place where folks gather to not only talk about their cars but also to get to know each other and build long lasting friendships. To that end, we feel it is important to learn a little about who you are. So please tell us about yourself, your family, where you are, what you do when not playing with your 54, and where, why and when did you fall in love with the ’54 Buick. When posting in the Introductions Forum for the first time, please include in the Subject line what country or state you are from. This will help newcomers see if there is anyone near the

Power steering main mount bracket and the 8 inch angle iron brace that bolts to the engine. Buick Green 6 Power steering pump - Black * The correct de
  3. Well here goes. This here is a take off of a thread I started sometime back over on the BCA Forum called "GIRLS ON BUICKS". It was a big hit and has been imMENsely enjoyed. http://forums.aaca.org/ubbthreads.php/ubb/showflat/Number/318819/Searchpage/12/Main/76783/Words/%22Girls+on+Buicks%22/Search/true/Girls_on_Buicks#Post318819 * I have had several requests off and on line to carry it over to here. So with no further ado, here it goes. PLEASE feel free to add your own "Girls on '54 BUICKS" Remembering of course that this is a family oriented site and to keep your comments gentlemanly (and lad
  4. The 1954 BUICK Highway Adventures in Roadmaster Aluminum Brakes Historical Note: I drove a ’54 Special on a daily basis from high school through grad school, and know well what brake fade is. On the fast freeways of SoCal, the old gal, “Louise” was good for the first quick stop, barely OK for the second, and frightening for the third. No matter how well I kept them adjusted, and that does make a big difference, you had to be careful until the drums cooled down. If a new car can stop on a dime, I old Buick needed two bucks and change. Even in the day, Buicks
  5. This is my 54 Buick we won it on ebay a few years ago. The car was stock 264 with 3 on the tree. My husband and I drove it until the trany gave out. My husband tried to find someone to fix it but had no luck. So he decided to hot rod it. He is still working on it and I will try to post some pic's.
  6. Here are a couple of Craigs List links I use while cruisin the internet for 54's for sale. This one just pulls up "all" 54 Buicks on Google. Type this into Google - 1954 buick site:craigslist.org or http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&aq=t&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4ADBF_enUS247US248&q=1954+buick+site%3acraigslist%2eorg You may need to refresh
  7. A bit of background music seems appropriate.... click, then click back here A couple of weeks ago I got an email from my good friend Bob Coker, owner of the 1954 Buick Landau Concept Car. He reported that he had found a buyer for the Landau and it would be heading to a private museum in Louisiana within a week or two. As a lot of you probably know, ever since Bob purchased the car at a RM auction at Amelia Island back in March of 2010, he has most graciously allowed me to participate in helping to carry it to shows and act as chauffeur and custodian to display and reveal it to the
  8. Facebook is a great way to connect people. So why not connect 1954 Buick people and lead them to our forum family? http://www.facebook.com/pages/1954-Buick/114854015194421?sk=wall
  9. I am ready to order a set of bias ply tires for my '54 Special 2 dr. HT and want to be sure that I get the correct whitewall width and also the correct (as original) size tire. I guess I will need a crossover size from the original size? At present I have a good set of whitewall radials, but for judging want to go for a set of the bias tires (and tubes), if correct. Also any vendor recommendations after I get the correct size and whitewall width? I saw a spare tire that Steve from I Motors had in his '54 Skylark and it had what appeared to be an original label attached to the tire, except t

  14. I have owned many cars being in the hobby for over 20 years, I have owned Hotrods, Kustoms, Roadsters, Gassers, Lowriders, and more. Currently I own a 64 Impala ss, 62 f100 patina shop truck, and a BONE STOCK 54 Buick Special 2 Dr post. Just picked it up and it is very original. 264 3 speed Black on Black. Very nice car..... My intent is to go the mild custom route. Give it a stance, kustom Watson style flame job etc. Etc. My problem is I'm conflicted. I'm not a stock guy, I get too bored with a stock car. But this car is as original as it gets and has only 40k or 140k miles. I have
  15. Howdy folks! After almost four years, my harddrives are full of Buick stuff. Too much to continue scanning for a couple of months. That gave me the opportunity to study which way would be the best to provide you - the 54 Buick Highwayers - all manuals, books and guides I have. Or if you all aren't interested in it. I tried many different technologies over the past weeks. One thing is absolutely sure: There isn't a perfect way to provide our type of literature. So every solution has advantages and disadvantages. I want to present you a way that has - in my eyes - many advantages: http://www.
  16. Ok....a much smaller idea to my other brain buster of listing all restoration parts and their finish. I want to start assembling together what needs to be done so I can have it done. Help me make a list of all the parts on a 1954 Buick that should be plated. First off, the hardware....should all the bolts be plated? Break Backing Plates Brake booster Carb links Pulleys/Gen fan Is this a matter of if not Chassis Black then its plated? Maybe I should approach it a different way... Just take a pic of every part in my "Pulled Part" inventory and indicate how its to be refinished......yeas
  17. Hi Everyone from Down Under, I purchased my 1954 2 door Century h/t last year in November, a friend of mine found the car on Ebay and as soon as saw it my wife and I fell in love with it. I was previously a Chevy owner, but after a 10 year gap with no car we decided to look for a family cruiser and came across this one. The next day after first seeing it I drove home a happy owner. It is running all original gear still, 322 Nailhead, Dynaflow Trans, factory power steering and power windows still work, but the power seats don't work at the moment. It has good patina to it and that's how I
  18. had some questions about doing a dual master on a 54 buick. It is a pain under the car but here are a few shots. The specific question was the orientation of the master and yes, the plastic filler lines do come in the side
  19. Hi all, new to the forum, but have had a 54 super convertible for awhile now. To help with the rebuild on the convertible I just picked up a 54 super 4 door that I am driving back to Texas from Oregon. Will be under the car fixing the leak from letting a local oil change place do an oil change and figured I would replace the front shocks while there. I saw the old threads with the reference to two Monroe part numbers and a Napa part number (Monroe 2003 or 5002; also NAPA 5032B), but contacting the stores and talking to Monroe they said those weren't correct. I saw several online options,
  20. Hopefully you have already introduced your self up in the INTRODUCTION forum. This is where to show off YOUR '54 Buick. Show and tell us about your car(s) history, how did you find it, what have you done to it and what are your future plans for it. Please enter the cars description or name, and model in the subject line to help make it easier to find and for others "searching" for it in the future. Example- "Buttercup-4 DR Roadmaster/72R" Also for the sake of continuity please keep all posts about each car in its own thread
  21. I was working on My '54 Century, and noticed that it did not have side view mirrors on the doors, or fenders. Were these optional equipment on the model 61 series??
  22. Hi, when I bought my Buick last year the trunk didn´t have either mat or divider against back seat. It still haven´t. I have tried many manufacturers but none of them have these parts for this particular model. Do anyone know a place where I can get these parts? Thanks!
  23. Is there supposed to be a grommet/seal where the accelerator linkage that connects to the pedal goes through the toe board/firewall? Right now I just have a hole about the size of a quarter with nothing in there at all. I know there's a bellows that is currently missing and I intend to replace it, but is there another seal below it? I've looked through the catalogs from Bob's and Old Buick Parts, but can't find one that is called out specifically for this hole. I just put a new carb on and would like to get the linkage squared away at the other end as well.
  24. Besides the '54 Buick Special I also own a 1964 Ford Mustang Convertible and a 1982 Chevrolet Corvette Collector Edition, all of them good examples of American car history!
