The convertible willbe sold.The high bidder gets it all. You can buy it or bid. This Buick has patina if you want to cruise it like it is and it has a decent interior for comfort. It has been tucked away for about 13 years in Suwanee, GA. Prior to that it was driven in the spring and summer time. About 5 years ago new dual exhausts(it has a nice growl when you press the gas), brakes, and brake lines were replaced. When we pulled it out and examined it we found everything was ready to go except for the low brake fluid inside of the master cylinder.The old gas was drained and the fluids were checkedand it runs really strong, great response,great shifting, and it pulls really good. The speedometer works properly and the mileage shows31,822 miles. There is no 6th digit so that is probably 131,822miles, but it responds like 31,822 is actual. The interior lights works.The car has power steering and a power antenna. Manual top that goes up and down easily. I am assuming it was manual because there is no evidence of cylinders or a pump ever being on this car. It can easily be converted to power with the addition of cylinders and apump. The top is equipped to handle cylinders. It also has an accessory switch beside the power antenna switch..The top fabric will need replacing. The GS has a power top. It is complete. The engine has plenty of power and there is no blow by smokecoming from the engine. It starts easily.It has good compression. The transmission shifts just the way it should shift with no slipping. The tires have been on theBuick for awhile. I have driven theWildcat around and I am impressed with the power. I haven't detected any flat spots in the tires, but I have not driven over 55mph or got on the expressway. I really did want to stretch it out on the highway though and see what that Nailhead would do with the 4 barrelcarb opened up. The tires look good, but please consider the fact that the tireshave been on the car for at least5 years before you try and drive it over1-2 hours on a hot day. One of you can drive it as is, race your buddies, or start restoringit.It's up to you because I have a very nice starting point for you to consider.Please look at the photos.There are areas that will require some fabrication or repairif you want to keep all of the original body panels. There are rusted through areas that you could cut out and repair with good steel. That will be your call, but if you media blast these areas they will be fairly simple to repair with a basic mig or tig welder. You can grind the welds and make a good repair. The floor pans, trunk pan, outerrockersbeneath the back of the lower door, lower rear of the fenders, and lower quarter panels. The back of the frame has some rust at the bottom of the frame underneath the trunk on both sides. That is right behind the rear wheels. Please see the photos. The rest of the frame is perfect. These areas can becut out and repaired to factory specs with the most basic welding skills. Any experienced restorer will make a good unnoticeable repair. However, if you want to use the GS as a parts car it has a perfect frame.This is an unmolested vehicle ready for you and your families enjoyment or it is ready for your vision. They will need some restoration. I will assist you or your transporter at pickup. If you need to make two trips that will be fine also. I will work with you.
