close ,but no dice.
Ps- It's 64 Caddy fins on a modified Chevy trk bed. You were sharp to get the fins right.
Don Oh yea.....the original 48 fenders were narrowed & welded on.

Don...looks like '64 Caddy qtr panels modified and Chevy fenders added to them, as in using the Cad qtrs as bed sides. Yes?
Forward hood, seems like lots of good info already here. I like the Buick idea myself.

Forward tilt hoods are a typical BMW feature, maybe get some ideas there as well.

GMWillys - The fins are tail light fins from a early Caddiac. If you can get help in sending pictures you can send them diectly to me at......firstname.lastname@example.org
If you can get someone with a digital camera to take a picture it is easy to sent to me. If they have a digital camera they probably no how to send it.

Only Buick Park Avenues ....'85--'90
Only Buick LeSabres ....'86--'91
Also ,check with NoLimit Engineering (www.nolimit.net)Rob may have a kit that fits your application .
For old Fords check out Sacramento Vintage Ford (www.vintage-ford.com)
even AutoLoc (www.autothisworld.com) may have a universal type kit .
Hope this helps .

To see those fins, click on the attached thumbnail picture to open a larger picture in a new window. It looks like 59 Dodge (?) fins and tail-lights have been expertly "grafted" onto the upper edge of the pickup box sheet-metal.
As far as sending pictures goes ... you'll need to digitize them first (scanner), save them as a file on your PC, then include that file as an attachment to your message. See the [Manage Attachments] button under the reply window

forward hood hinges
I have pictures, but don"t know how to get them to you except by mail. [ I'm conputer illiterate], and as you can see, I don't know if this thread is going to the right person. How do I respond to an individual when there are many threads? I guess I'm missing something here.
As for the years, I'm not sure, but all Park Avenues with that same body style will be the same. Probably late 80's to min 90's. Don't know about other GM name plates, as I've been out of the compamy and retired since the mid 80's.
While I'm here. What are FINS??
|08-26-2005 02:21 PM|
Those FINS are awesome!

re: forward tilt
I did a forward tilt on a 38 Chev PU- after welding all the sheetmetal, I made a frame from square tubing, got some large heim joints, bolted them to a piece of angle iron in the front, and used convertible top rams over the framerails to tilt the front end forward with the push of a button. Was simple to do and worked great. Bill

Great advice.......I know I can find one of those in the salvage yard.Do you have a picture of your installation?
|08-25-2005 09:26 PM|
If your a do-it-yourselfer, an 89ish Buick Park Avenue is just the ticket. Its on my 48 ford pick-up, and going on my 48 Chevy suburban.
|08-25-2005 09:10 PM|
Good info...I'll check the Saabs out if I can find one.
Any other ideas?
