1955 Buick Century 60 RivieraHere is a great opportunity for someone to get asuper project car with the utmost cool factor! This is a Barn Find if there ever was one. Stored in a heated shop for many years since the owner passed away unexpectedly. I am acting on behalf of his widow to liquidate a huge collection of cars and trucks. The owner bought the car with the current drivetrain in it in 1999 and had the upholstery completely redone in its original 2 tone green colors recently. Originally the exterior colors were a wild 3 tone scheme (code CBU) of Cameo Beige, Dover White, and Condor Yellow! The original 322 Nailhead was long gone when he bought the car so he installed the drivetrain from a 1970 Buick Riviera with the mighty 455 engine and THM 400. The steering column and wheel was also changed to a later style and the original is nowhere to be found. There was an obvious intention to make this a hot rod; so a spindle drop was done, big Centerline wheels were installed with newer tires, a brand new aluminum radiator was installed, and a column mounted tach with shift light was installed. There is a clearance issue with the drop spindle setup as the steering box is in the way, so a knuckle would have to be made. The original spindles are included and the antenna is included.The original jack and some parts that were in the trunk are included as shown. There is no carburetor or air cleaner with the car. The heater box was removed for engine installation and I am not sure if there was a clearance issue or whether he just didn't get it reinstalled. There is an extra heater box assembly included as shown. There is an extra glove box door included that is the same color with no dents or rust in it. The hood does not close all of the way so there is a hinge issue possibly. All of the chrome and trim seem to be on or with the car including an extracomplete and nice hood ornament and beautifultrunk lid ornament. There is one small ding in the side molding that will easily straighten. There is one 1/4 inch diameter spot of rust on the RH rocker panel. NO other rust anywhere. The trunk and frame are spotless. The car is very straight with only one minor dent that is so shallow I don't think it shows in the pictures but is located above the LH rear wheel opening. The passenger side door glass is cracked. The windshield has a wiper mark in it. All other glass is very nice. The doors and trunk all lock nicely. The chrome on this car is not pitted. Tail lights and headlights are not broken. Only dings in the chrome are on both front bullet noses. All in all a GREAT project that could easily be put back to original configuration if desired. NADA LOW retail is $11,000! Clear CO title. Car is located in Arvada, Colorado so you will need to arrange transport from that zip code.
