Vehicle Description

Only 265 miles on a body off frame, rotisserie restoration. Documented with a photo album of the process. It was born these fabulous colors!

EXTERIOR: Gorgeous! The body was stripped to a bare metal shell. It is laser straight and fits right. No rust, damage, bubbles, or poor body work. Repainted its original Tahiti Coral and Dover white. It didn't look this good new; it is polished like glass. Every piece of chrome was replated. The stainless is polished like new. All new weatherstrips and seals. All new glass. Restored power top frame, weatherstrips replaced and a new white top. Upgraded with a beautiful set of wire wheels with Buick spinners and Coker Classic radial white walls.

INTERIOR: Beautiful color matched interior was completely restored. Reupholstered seats and door panels. New padded dash. The dash area is in excellent shape. Seatbelts were added. It's nice including the chrome, glovebox, handles, pedals etc.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Completely restored to look factory new. The 322-220 hp motor runs as smooth as silk. All stock manifolds, valve covers and air cleaner. It features power steering and brakes. It also has windshield washers. Every component looks properly installed. It has the correct insulated choke tube, hose clamps, radiator cap, hood insulation etc. The wiring looks new. The metal surfaces are meticulously painted.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Under the trunk lid and jamb are painted slick. It has a correct liner kit. The spare has a matching white wall and it has the jack assembly. New well liner and weatherstrip.

UNDERSIDE: The body was removed from the frame; every component was taken apart and restored. The chassis is smooth, not pitted metal painted satin black. The floors, braces and rockers are bone dry metal painted red oxide primer. The steering and suspension were completely rebuilt. The brakes were completely rebuilt. The fuel system was replaced. It has a factory correct dual exhaust with exhaust ports in the bumper. Looking up at the motor it is squeaky clean. Restored Dynaflow automatic trans.

SERVICE: We inspected the car and rebuilt the wiper motor, tightened visors, rebuilt the gauges, replaced fuel sending unit, adjusted glovebox latch, removed and lubed control arms, and repositioned tailpipe.

I'm in love! This car is beautiful sitting in our showroom. It stands out even amongst the other beautiful cars. This restoration would start at $125,000 today. It's done right, the new owner will be very happy!

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.
