For Sale: 1957 Buick Century in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

Wouldn't you really rather have a Buick? A 1957 Buick Century is far from a common sight. But when it's been upgraded to Pro Touring status, and at a very high level at that, it's really something special. Buick purists - and indeed anyone who appreciates vintage automobiles - will recognize the full worth of a 425 Nailhead as the engine of choice. It's big and torquey, and just right for this build. Furthermore, it's been freshened and balanced, and on top two Carter AFB carbs on an aluminum Offenhauser manifold lend an air of hot rod sophistication. Another great choice is the Turbo 400 automatic for its ability to handle lots of torque in a large vehicle. With a 122 inch wheelbase and a curb weight of over 4400 pounds, the big Buick was no lightweight. That means six can ride in comfort in an elegant custom interior. The character of the original dash is retained but the interior is nicely enhanced with striking white upholstery and red carpeting, door trim, and piping on the seats. The effect is modern and classic at the same time, which can be said of the entire build. Finish work extends to the headliner and the trunk as well. Two stage Viper red paint with all-new chrome make an eye-catching combination. Staggered 22-inch Eagle billet wheels bring the visual dimensions up to date and finish off the modern/classic theme. The build is so fresh, the stickers are still on the tires. For something a cut above the norm, this 1957 Buick Century Pro Touring is an ideal choice.
