    Skirts for 67 LeSabre?

    Does anyone know if fender skirts were an option on the 67 Le Sabre? On the options sheet (from this site's Reference page) they are not listed, but maybe part of trim package? Looking around on the web, I found some for the Electra, Riviera, and Skylark, but not for Le Sabre. I was thinking...

    Power window stuck down

    The left rear power window is stuck down in my 67 Le Sabre 4 door. I checked the sash, cam, rollers, and stops for pinch points or jams and I tested the motor with both the existing pigtail and a new wire to 12v + so I know that it is bad. I have the Fisher Body Manual which describes the...

    1966 LeSabre

    I haven't been on here for a while - health issues, anyhow I saw there there is a wanted post for 1966 Le Sabre letters for hood and trunk. There is a 66 on CL in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA for $600. It looked like the rear lettering at least was in fair condition - the car is very dusty in the...

    Pulled fuel pump & found ???? Any Ideas?

    I pulled the fuel pump due to low output and as always, I took a couple pics for reference. It looks like there is something in there like a piece of a gasket or rag. I thought I should run it by you guys before proceeding, might be nothing, but I would rather be cautious. Thanks. Doug

    Question about Brake Reaction Rod replacement rubber @ frame side

    I was hoping that someone could tell me if I can replace the rubber that is between the frame and the domed washer on the front side without removing the entire assembly, and if so, do I need to have the suspension hanging or will it be OK to do this just as it sits. For reference i included...

    Found 3rd Build sheet in F L fender

    I was updating some wiring on my 67 LeSabre (built in KC, KS) the other day, and I found a 3rd build sheet inside of the front left fender near the top. The condition is marginal, but I thought I'd pass on the info. Doug

    1971 Buick Le Sabre Convertible

    RE Lesabre parts I have two 67 LeSabres and they can be difficult to find parts for. I believe that TA performance,, The Buick Farm, CARS, all have a searchable online catalog, and I think has, or at last had a downloadable version. I am on the internet...

    Differences between 67 LeS base (45269) and custom (45469) models other than trim?

    I recently bought another 67 LeSabre. This is a custom (45469) model that I got to cannibalize for my base model (45269). There are obvious differences in the interiors, but there seems to be slight differences in the frame construction as well as the width of the roof - approx. 3" at the top. I...
