Buick Special convertible 1955 For SaleHere we have my beautiful Very Rare 1955 Buick special convertible, imported from Florida in 2015.
Great Original 264 Nail head V8 and 2 speed power glide auto transmission. Starts on the accelerator as it should. Very good original interior and every thing working, apart from wipers.
I have spent over £6000 in parts alone since her arrival.
I have been driving this car now for 2 years, she starts and runs great, Gear box is strong and very smooth, I have done some long journeys from Somerset to Midlands with no problems.
Ref; convertible top I have replace with new, Bow pads, Well liner, Both pistons, All fluid lines, White convertible top and all frame rubbers, frame was re sprayed.
Other items I have replaced with new are Rear coil springs and insulators, Carpets and all sound proofing on floor, Outer door handles and mirrors, Chrome door sills, Many new parts and replacement parts to get the heaters working including the under seat heating.
New starter solenoid, Fuel pump has been totally rebuilt, 2 bbl Carb and water pump have been rebuilt, lots of freeze plugs replaced etc etc. New Fuel sender, Fuel tank was removed cleaned and sealed before being replaced, Tri bar head lamps and rubbers. Recent wind screen with blue tint.
To many smaller bits n bobs to list.
In the trunk are lots of parts that I purchased but have not fitted including all door and trunk rubbers, All brake shoes and cylinders even though the ones on the car are fine, Kick panels, more chrome door sills, Under bonnet insulation and a box of other stuff.
The radio sounds amazing however I think the internals have been replaced with new. Also comes with a new stereo to take Ipod.
In general the car is now in great shape however it's not mint, you'll need over £70k for one of those. If you can find one. One recently sold at Barret Jackson for $93.500 The paint is about 15 / 20 years old and has some imperfections but still looks very good, the inner sills / rockers need attention due to rust caused by blocked water outlets, the outer ones have been replaced at some stage, however I have imported all new inner and outer sills ready for installation should you wish to do it. All floors are good no patching , a good solid body.
Most of the chrome on the car is in great shape apart from one piece if trim on the rear wing that has some slight damage, a very small amount of peeling near front number plate on two of the bolt holes. the rear tail lamps are very shiny but slightly pitted as is the rear emblem. Steering is all very good but typical of a 50's yank with no power steering.
This car looks amazing with the top up and especially when down, a great cruiser and prize winner.
Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions.
