I looked in my annuals stash, and I got nothing extra for a 1960 Buick.

 

I'll forewarn you for some reason its not unusual for the hood to be missing on that kit,,,,and as such tough to find

I have the front bumper and grille and rear bumper for you Tom.

They came from an old promo that got plenty of "play time" but I believe that they are salvageable.

 

The front bumper is in good condition.

 

The rear bumper has seen a lot of "wheelies" leaving a lot of scratches on the under side, but with some sanding, I think it can be saved.

There is also one of the sharp tips broken off, but that should be repairable as well.

 

If you're interested, I also have a pretty good complete promo interior.

Of course it's made of the same acetate plastic that the bodies were made of then, so there's no telling how warped it is, or will be in the future.

 

 

Just so you know, you're better off replacing the original kit head light lenses anyway.

The originals are pretty horrible, and some modern kit lenses will look infinitely better.

That's what I did with my '60.

 

 

Likewise, you might be able to "fudge" the tail lights as well.

They are not a strange shape or anything.

Just round with a chrome "cross" in the middle.

You might be able to scrounge something from another kit that would work.

 

Anyway, here's what I have.

Let me know what you think and we can have a negotiation. :P

Tom, the taillights are in the '50 Ford convertible kit as custom parts, molded in clear red:

Not a great photo but you get the idea. Should be easy to find.
