You're looking at a very rare 1932 Buick Victoria (this is the smaller 50 series - 114" wheelbase). Only 2,194 of these were built. That is only quarter of the production of a 1932 Ford Victoria - not including the 1,000's of fiberglass Fords! Not only is it much rarer that a Ford, but it is also about a foot longer and includes an openable trunk. Stand out in a crowd of Duece Fords with something different!

So, about this car in particular. I bought it a few years ago from a master craftsman hot rod builder in Washington state who was building it for himself before his untimely passing. It is clear that he was building a truly quality resto-rod, as the workmanship is fantastic! The bodywork is 95% complete, and very well done (the doors were not fitted before his passing, so they will need to be shimmed and fitted once to the assembly stage). The chassis is also 95% complete, including the stainless fuel tank, custom driveshaft and even brake plumbing. The steering is also complete. It still needs exhaust (past the headers), and of course disassembly for paint color of choice. The LS motor (truck) and automatic transmission are in place, and include the A/C compressor, custom exhaust headers and reprogrammed computer. Easy to dress it up with one of the many bolt-on aftermarket intakes for a show car look. Also includes extensive new chrome work (headlights, front decor, etc), new wood (where not replaced with metal), and a great custom dash complete with new Classic Instruments, and a hidden A/C panel nicely tucked below the smoothed metal dash. Power window switches are controlled by original style handles on the doors. A new tilt column, Lokar floor shifter, custom e-brake are just a few more of the many details already in place. So much has been completed, yet there is much more to do. The car is on shop roller wheels, ready for a custom set of wheels of your choice. Please note that the chrome wire wheels seen in a few of the photos are NOT included.

If you are looking for a quality start of a rarely seen car, you won't find another one like it! I've attached a number of photos for your review but would really encourage you to come see the car in person if you can. Please note that the last 4 or 5 images are of a couple of finished 1932 Buick Victorias (and one wild Chevy!) to give an example of what this car will look like finished. Want to see more pictures?

This car is being sold with an undated, clear (PA) ownership certificate, ready for a new registration. I will also include a copy of the bill of sale of when I purchased the car in 2013, as well as a new bill of sale for you. I am asking $28,900 – but I’ll consider all reasonable offers as I am selling to complete a real estate deal and time is of the essence.  The car is located in Paso Robles, CA - which is exactly between San Francisco and Los Angeles, on the CA Hwy 101. We are very easy access via a pleasant drive, or fly-in to nearby San Luis Obispo airport.

Oh, by the name is Scott.
