Its lavish exterior instantly evokes images of a time when prohibition was just being lifted and the World\'s Fair in Chicago was celebrating A Century of Progress. This 1933 Buick Series 57 Streetrod is a looker all right, and it also features smooth running power under its lengthy hood, as well as a nice collection of features you won\'t often find on cars in its niche. And, having logged just a little over 8,000 miles since its build, it offers the promise of plenty of future fun filled miles.
This generously proportioned \'30s classic sports a great looking paint job, with its silver cabin complemented by the gray running along its sweeping fenders and floorboards. It features a sturdily constructed steel body, so there\'ll be no worries about the stress cracks that can occur with its fiberglass-clad counterparts. There are plenty of great details to admire here - the overall fit and finish of this car looks great and you\'ll find full size spares with matching wheels mounted on both front fenders. In front, a pair of fog lights sit below the prominently-sized headlights on a fresh-looking, table straight bumper while in back, the thoroughly vintage look of the chrome luggage rack with its vinyl lined storage trunk joins a third brake light molded into the body for added visibility and safety in real world driving. Every other additional piece of chrome on display also looks to be in top form.
The custom-built gray interior shows a lot of workmanship and is very well-appointed and comfortable, with a pair of tweed covered front buckets that have yet to develop any discoloration from use. Both the snug fitting headliner above and the plush carpet lining the floor are nice finishing details, as is the added console that houses an assortment of well-placed switches to operate a number of the interior functions. Along with all of its timeless vintage charm, there are some really welcome comfort and convenience features on board that make frequent driving a pleasure, including a tilt column, power windows and door locks, power bucket seats, and air conditioning that\'s blowing strong and cold. You\'ll have no shortage of audio options, the AM/FM/CD stereo offers a USB port to connect an outside source and is also compatible with satellite radio. There\'s a collection of aftermarket gauges mounted inside a billet bezel on the dash to keep tabs on vital motoring functions.
This classic Buick offers a great driving experience. The 350 cubic inch V8 fitted into its tapered engine compartment runs very smoothly - it was rebuilt not long ago and is equipped with a 4-barrel Edelbrock carb, a Holley aluminum intake, aftermarket headers and an HEI ignition to up its performance, as well as a number of chrome-finished components for added eye candy. Just behind it is a 4-speed automatic 700r4 transmission whose overdrive gear makes for engine-sparing, low revs at highway speeds. The added Mustang II front end provides a wealth of benefits, including power disc brakes, responsive and precise power rack and pinion steering and a nice smooth ride. 15 wire wheels at all four corners that wear BF Goodrich T/A radials complete the look of this magnetic classic.
