This is a Colorado car that has documented proof its history. The car was purchased by AC Motors from a Colorado native who had owned the car since 1964. From AC Motors it was then sold to and lovingly cared for by the same owner in Colorado for 30 years! Showing only minor imperfections it shows extremely well for a car of this period. The contrasting white top compliment the beautiful burgundy of the exterior. The chrome bumpers are in very good condition with fit and finish above par. The aluminum trim is in great shape as well, with very minor imperfections. The 1950 Specials were divided into two lines. The base model had no body-side moldings, while the Special Deluxe had trim, bright window outlines and “Special” script on the front fenders. Three body styles were available in the Special line, with four in the Special Deluxe. Each had a fastback, or “Jetback,” two-and four-door, as well as a conventional notchback four-door touring sedan. Power came from the 110-hp, 248-cid OHV straight-eight engine, with a three-speed or optional Dynaflow automatic transmission. For 1951, the Buick Special grille was modified to a more conventional waterfall design, and the Special line gained a convertible and a Riviera two-door hardtop. The Jetback style was dropped, to be replaced by a more conventional notchback form. The straight-eight engine was increased to 263 cid and 120 hp, which this car has. Inside, the interior is finished in the original color combination of grey cloth. The seats are in great condition, showing little signs of wear or age. The dashboard, door panels, headliner look period with the colors of the interior. However it should be noted that the temperature and oil pressure gauge are inoperable. Under the hood, you'll find the 263 cid Inline 8 cylinder engine mated to a 3-speed manual transmission. The colored keyed 15 inch OEM wheels are wrapped in American Classic Wide whitewall tires. Also included with the purchase are the sale brochures, service records, receipts, service and shop manuals from this cars long Colorado history. This 50s icon is sure to turn heads no matter where you take it! It would be an excellent addition to any classic car collection or a fabulous Sunday driver. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
