For Sale: 1955 Buick Special in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Classic Car Addict is excited to present this beautiful 1955 Buick Special 2-door hardtop for sale in our Mesa| AZ showroom. Showcasing an excellent example of a 1955 Buick Special that has been completely restored to high standards. With proper V8 power| detailed classic style| and a beautiful shine| this 1955 Buick Special is a terrific and unique vintage cruiser. Sure| 1955 Chevys are nice| and Cadillacs are flashy| but nobody could compare with Buick's brand of style. The design choices on this car have aged extremely well| and the dramatic look only gets better with the bold black shown here. It was restored a few years ago| so it's not perfect| but you must get up relatively close to find the imperfections and with all that chrome and trim| nobody's going to be looking at the little stuff anyway. These have some noteworthy brightwork| and this one is clean and complete. Areas like the big intricate bumpers have a bright shine to go well with the clearcoat| but it's not overdone. The hood ornament| factory wheel covers| tailfins| and wraparound glass both front & rear is all about a detailed package that makes a Buick desirable. The interior is a little more subtle| but only a little. Two-tone maroon and black upholstery combine a '50s sensibility with bold colors that make it look expensive| which was surely the point. The big steering wheel is thin and almost delicate| especially on such a big brute| but the two-tone color scheme and chrome on the dash is pure genius| with the fine grille for the radio speaker mirroring the grille up front. The original AM radio is still in place but is not working. And as a Buick| it's got a massive trunk that's fully upholstered in black carpet| and it also houses what is likely an original spare. Under the hood is the uber-dependable Buick Nailhead| 264 cubic inches of what is believed to be the original motor for this car. The name of the game was torque| and the undisputed champion in '55 was the Nailhead| so this car moves like it's got Corvette DNA in its veins. Everything looks stock inside the engine bay| and they didn't take many liberties with the hardware| which still uses the original heavy-duty air cleaner and cast-iron exhaust manifolds. There's a reliable and incomparably smooth Dynaflow automatic transmission behind it| and it does take some getting used to but it's pure Buick at its best. The underside isn't detailed for show| but does have a great set of pipes| a big gas tank| and that smooth Buick ride that has to be experienced to understand. Factory steel wheels with flashy chrome hubcaps were popular with Buicks of all shapes and sizes| and it wears proper 7.6-15 whitewall bias-ply tires at each corner. This is the affordable classic with a ton of distinction| so don't miss this super Buick Special. Call Classic Car Addict today| 480-256-1459.
