* 1955 buick century 2dr hardtop pillarless coupe *

beautiful solid nice show quality condition original car, freshly imported into the uk in febuary this year from texas.

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 sbs, roof and lower of the car are cherokee red. And the middle of the car is dover white.

paint code b = dover white and paint code s = cherokee red, which you see on the car now.
interior trim code is 462 - seat material is charcoal pattern nylon with bolster material red cordaveen, which is exactly what the cars interior is now.

lovely running smooth original buick 322cui 5.3ltr 235 bhp v8 nailhead engine starts first time at the push of the button, the engine has a new edelbrock 4bbl carburettor.

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.

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.

after market air con has been fitted and is in great working order + the buick tissue dispenser sits just below the centre air vents.

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 beautiful condition (actually i think the whole lot has been freshly re-chromed) its that nice, this really complements the beautiful quality factory dover white / cherokee red paint and bodywork the car has.

panel gaps and all chrome exterior trims all line up lovely.

new radial wide whitewall tyres are on all 4 corners with nice condition chrome smoothie wheels.

all in all this car is in lovely shape and solid, in very stunning show quality condition for a 65 year old vehicle! It will certainly stand proud and wont embarrass at shows.this car needs nothing other than a loving owner who loves to polish it regularly and show it off driving it around!

i find these mid 50’s buick’s great value for money against the chevy equivalent, and they are harder too, due to the lower numbers of them left, so you wont be turning up to a show to find 4 or 5 others there.

these smaller body buicks (special and centyry 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.
