Judged one time, scoring a 394 points out of a possible score of 400 (99%) by known authorities Buick club of America and the AACA (Antique Automobile Club of America).

Vehicle Claims and Descriptions:
Vehicle Descriptions, representations and claims are based on what can be seen by the human eye, documentation, previous professional experience, opinion, factory claims, and, or, information passed on to us by previous owners or restorers. It's to the best of our knowledge that everything we advertise has all indications of being that claim. Please inquire as to what documentation we have on the vehicle you are purchasing. It is with integrity and honesty that we describe our cars, but they are in fact, up to 100 years old, may have had many previous owners, modifications or alterations that are unknown to the sellers, so it's not possible to verify everything about every car.
As always we welcome personal inspections and or independent appraisers prior to the sale.
