Vehicle Description

This is a special treat for anyone that sees a car like this cruising down the road. It's an even bigger treat if you're the driver! Restored very nicely throughout.

EXTERIOR: Very desirable dual side mount convertible. All metal body and fenders. No rust or damage. It's straight and fits right. Beautiful metallic maroon, it has sharp highlights when the light hits it. It's laid out evenly and polished glossy. Overall, the chrome and trim is shiny and straight. It has the optional metal covers over the sidemount tires. The convertible top was replaced with correct Haartz cloth. The wheels are restored and wrapped with big ole whitewalls.

INTERIOR: Overall very nice. The seats, door panels, armrests, visors, and kick panels were reupholstered. Carpet was replaced. Dash area looks great, the gauges look like new. Beautiful steering wheel, it has optional turn signals too. Looking up at the inside of the top its excellent, top frame was restored.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Dynaflash straight 8 motor runs smooth as silk. It is restored and detailed very well. Reproduction cloth wrapped wires, decals, and hose clamps. It has a bit of extra chrome. The components are clean. Battery is properly mounted, it has both horns, correct air cleaner. Optional oil filter. The original body tag is still attached

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It is very neatly with black carpet. Weatherstrip is soft.

UNDERSIDE: Underneath the car looks very clean. It gives me the impression it has been restored. The front end components are not greasy, nuts and bolts are clean, miscellaneous parts look fresh. It has the correct exhaust system. The e-brake is still hooked up. The fuel tank has been replaced. The underside metal looks very clean, it has been prepped and painted semi glass black.

I'm around vintage cars all the time and even I still love it when we get something like this. It really takes you back to an era most people aren't familiar with. If you want to be as special as this Buick Special, here is your chance. This one is a great example.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership.
