    Whay is the Year nad Model of YOUR Classic Buick

    I own a 56 Buick Special 46R, with a 322 Nailhead. Red and White.
    There are not very many enthusiests that have worked on older buicks. Thank God a Guy I work with was employed as a Mechanic for 14 years at a Buick Dealership in the 60's. And of course a Service Manual. No Computers, NO Emissions, NO Metric Fasteners. Problems were a lot easier to determine and reair back then. Just basic car stuff, without the other complications.

    1956 Buick Special 2 DR HT

    Hi Howard,

    I am also an owner of a 56 Bucik Special 2DR HT. Red with a White Roof in need of Paint. All Origional with 38, 084 documented origional miles. However It does need some body work especially the Rear Quarter Panels. What Problems have YOU experienced concerning YOUR Body Restoration. My 56 has been sitting in storage since 1970. and now I can watch the rust growing day by day. Have YOU experienced Similar Problems? If so, What did YOU do to correct it? OR what recomendations do YOU have. Did YOU have to replace Body Panel Sections? Where did YOU obtain REPLACEMENT parts. Any and All help or Suggestions, no matter how Insignificant will be of GREAT Help.

    My car was subjected to the weather the entire time of its resting. The previous owner didn't know alot about fixiing sheet metal he just relied upon bond. Both of the rear quaters directly below the drip rail where rusted through, also the passenger side rocker panel and the extension frpm the door to the rear wheel well on both sides, the trunck was rusted through and the floor pans were rusted out. Most of the metal replacements were done with peices I fabricated but I plan on using classicfabrications.com for the floor pan. I'm going to do some measurements of a friends 57' Belair trunck to see if the panels are the same, if so I'll order them from Danchuck. As to rust, just remove it and get an encapsulator to help stop it.

    I own a 1962 Buick Invicta four door hardtop with the 325hp
    4bbl 401, with single exshost. Interior is Fawn cloth/vinyl, and
    exterior is a pretty cool two tone finish. Lower color is Cameo
    Cream, and the roof color is Arctic White. Just out of curiousity,
    how many of the 62 Buick's have you guys seen with that combo?
    Because, I have not seen another one with that color combo, in
    any model in 62 except mine. Well, talk to you all later.

    Hope to have back on the road for spring! Have all the parts we need for replacement except, ball joints. Dad is working on the floor pans and we still haven't agreed on the paint.
    Still haven't named her yet either!

    I'm still trying to figure out the poll!:error:

    It obviously looks like a missed intention. Should have been a "year" of car we were polling on. :Dou:

    Oh well. I'm bored. :3gears: :spank: :sleep: :rant: :af: :beer :pp :Brow: :moonu: :ball: :beer
