* 1955 buick special 2dr sedan coupe *
beautiful solid nice show quality condition original car, freshly imported into the uk in febuary this year from texas usa.
mileage is reading 117,000 miles, there is a sinclair service sticker on the inside of the drivers door showing the date 18.06.1975 where a service was recorded at 76,085 miles, so i'd say the mileage shown on the odometer is genuine.
the car feels very solid to drive, no wondering all over the road, or play in the steering, if you press the gas peddle to the floor, the car will kick down the gears to give a boost in accleration.
brakes are very good and responsive (they are still standard factory original).
i have decoded the car from its cowl vin plate to find this information below
paint code is bcc, roof is dover white, and the lower of the car is cameo beige.
paint code b = dover white and paint code c = cameo beige, which you see on the car now.
interior trim code is 443a- seat material is green pattern nylon with bolster material dark green cordaveen, which is exactly what the cars interior is now.
lovely running smooth original buick 264cui 4.3ltr v8 nailhead engine starts first time at push of the gas peddel (yes it’s that original the starter is still operated by the floor gas peddle) the engine still has its original stormberg aerotype 2bbl carburettor that is auto choke operated
original column shift 2 speed dynaflow automatic gearbox that shifts very smoothly through all gears
car cruises lovely at 50-60 mph and pulls hard through the gears (yes the speedo works well / seems to read accurately, and does not jump all over the clock or rattle away whilst driving.
all electrics and gauges work just as they should.
oil pressure gauge reads high when engine is running, regulator gauge shows charging and temp gauge never gets above normal, even when running, sitting in direct sunlight for over an hour.
the car still has its original factory sound deadening fabric pad fitted to the underside of the bonnet.
the car has its lovely original style trim colour interior, and dash is still painted in its factory colours to match the interior seat / door card colours.
interior trim and floor carpet are in lovely condition, as is all the dash paint and chrome instrument cluster to.
glass is in great condition, windows all go up and down really nicely and smoothly.
the chrome and stainless are in lovely condition, this really complements the beautiful quality factory dove white / cameo beige paint and bodywork the car has.
pannel gaps / trims and factory lines all seem to line up lovely, and bodywork is very straight.
nice condition radial whitewall tyres are on all 4 corners with nice condition original wheel trims.
paintwork is stunnning (yes it does have the odd stone chip but its a 65 year old used car, and its been used for its intended purpose)
all in all this car is in lovely shape and solid. Be under no illusion that its a complete trailer queen car... its not
its in very nice show quality condition for a 65 year old vehicle! It will certainly stand proud and wont embarrass at shows, a real time capsule car from the mid 50’s era when gm cars were at there best.
i find these mid 50's buicks are great value against the chevy equivalent, and are also harder to find, due to the lower numbers of them left, so you wont be taking it to a show to find 4 or 5 others there.
these smaller body buicks (special and century models) will fit in a standard garage, they are 16ft long.
you can call me on the details below if you have any questions, i will be very happy to chat.
