This 1953 Buick Super 8 Convertible was built for boulevard
cruising and this one is ready to roll! The Super was Buick's
mid-level model line in 1953, plusher than the Special but less
expensive than the Roadmaster. The '53 Super shared a number of
important features from the upper level Roadmasters including
Buick's brand new V8 engine and the Roadmaster's longer wheelbase.
Of course, from the outside, it is easy to distinguish a Super from
a Roadmaster because the Super has 3 Ventiports (compared to the
Roadmaster's 4). Powering this '53 Buick is a "Nailhead" 322 Cubic
Inch V8 paired with a single 2 barrel carburetor that pushed out
164 horsepower in its day. The 322 Nailhead V8 is mated up to an
automatic transmission which means that anybody can take this
classic Buick for a spin. The engine also features a few minor
upgrades for improved reliability, including an electric fuel pump
and an alternator replacing the generator. Like many Supers in the
day, this particular '53 Super is a well optioned example. With
power steering, getting in and out of tight spaces is much easier.
Bringing this '53 Buick to a stop is also made easier with front
power brakes. The exterior of this '53 Buick Super Convertible has
been refinished in Majestic White which is a nice contrast to the
black canvas convertible top. The bench seat interior on this Buick
Super appears to have been recently reupholstered in Black and Red
Vinyl complementing the exterior look of the car. The dash appears
to be in in its stock configuration, complete with a speedometer,
oil pressure gauge, gas gauge, temperature gauge, amp gauge, clock,
and AM radio. The door panels, carpeting, and steering wheel also
have a fantastic, well-maintained look. If you're looking for a
Super cool convertible to take for a cruise, this 1953 Buick Super
8 Convertible makes an excellent choice. Give us a call today!
