For Sale: 1955 Buick Special in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description


This 1955 Buick Special LS1 Restomod is a masterclass in blending classic style with modern performance. Dressed in a stunning shade of burgundy that seems to shimmer under the sun, this coupe is an instant attention-grabber. The body, with its iconic lines and curves, has been meticulously restored to a driver-plus quality, ensuring that every inch of this beauty is a sight to behold. The polished American Racing salt flat special 15" wheels, wrapped in 205/70R15 tires up front and 255/70R15 at the rear, add a touch of retro-cool while providing a solid connection to the road.

Inside, the custom beige vinyl interior is a testament to craftsmanship and comfort. The bucket seats, accented by a beautifully crafted center console housing a Pioneer DVD player, invite you to settle in and enjoy the ride. The updated dash, featuring Hairline gauges and aftermarket air conditioning controls, seamlessly integrates modern amenities into the classic design. The polished aluminum three-spoke steering wheel, mounted on a tilt column combined with power steering, puts control at your fingertips, while the column shifter adds a touch of old-school cool.

The real excitement lies beneath the hood, where a 5.7L LS1 V8 engine with aluminum block and heads unleashes a thrilling wave of power, paired with a smooth-shifting 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission for the perfect balance of performance and drivability. The well-organized engine compartment features custom manifolds, a unique Buick engine cover, and a dependable serpentine belt drive system. This Buick Special's prowess extends to its masterfully upgraded chassis by Terry Palmer, with an independent front suspension, 4-link rear setup with Ridetech coilovers, four-wheel power disc brakes, and a 9" rear axle, delivering a ride that's smooth, responsive, and effectively channels the LS1's might to the asphalt.
