1956 Buick Century ConvertibleShe needs new glass, I driver her most weekends. New interior with cream leather and Texas Longhorn hair on hide accents. new carpet throughout including trunk. Car had all new sheet metal on floors when built. Turbo 400 transmission and late model Impala rear axle with custom suspension linkage. Paint is a suede or flat finish and of course the car is a 50's Custom. Lowered front spindles and front coil springs were reduced by 2 coils. Drum brakes all away around - I include the disc brake conversion kit from Scarebird that utilizes Chevy Astro Van discs. Convertible top is new and was performed by Stitches of West Houston. I have driven her from Houston to Austin and back more than once without issue. Engine is from a 1963 Buick and is by serial number high performance for its day. Car does not run hot. Power steering needs work.
This car has been great fun for our family and needs a new home. I have many pics and will take any others requested. For sale locally as well.
