Note: I have had some feedback since listed,
some say it's not currently 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 as possible. (With exception
on the color) my dad bought 2 other Buicks
just for parts to ensure original parts
stayed on this car. If we couldn't restore a
part, we had it sent out and had it re-done
right. 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 it. The engine was done
by a certified machinist and put back
together following all specs down to the
proper torque. I can provide some helpful
guidance and information if needed as long as
I'm around or available. If you need other
pictures, please let me know I will provide
you with them.
