Note: I have had some feedback since listed,
some say it's not all original others said
it's too much just a project car.
What I can tell you is I have been involved
in this car since my dad started it. I can
assure anyone that all details of restoring
this car have been taken with great
appreciation to keeping it year dated and
stock original. (With exception
on the color) my dad bought 2 other same
model Buicks just for parts to ensure
original part's stayed on this car. If we
couldn't restore a part, we had it sent out
and had it re-done professionally. Some body
work done as well as the fenders were all
lead sweated and/or had sheet steel used to
repair it all done by a (30+ year auto body
specialist). Some smaller parts may have
spots of filler used to repair it but that
would be very minimal. The engine was done by
a certified machinist and put
back together following all GM book specs
down to the proper torque. I can provide some
helpful guidance and information if needed as
long as I'm available. If you need
other pictures, please let me know I will
provide you with them. 10/1/23, 5/15/24
updated description, added some additional
pics. 2/23/24 added more pics of fenders to
go on car and extra (spare parts fenders,
front doors, hood, bumpers) last 4 or 5 pics.
Not pictured also included, transmission,
engine parts Camshaft, Cam, Head, block, body
trim and more.
