1955 Buick Riviera Special

This is the most solid and original car from the 50s I have ever experienced. The original owner's grandson sold me the car a couple years ago having never driven it in 30yrs. Mileage is correct! It has been fixed up to drive as if it would never be sold; yet, it must. Please check out the photos and description to appreciate the coolness of this very desirable body style, color combo, and condition with just the right patina.

It's an incredible car. However, there are some blems from age and use (paint chips/dings/scratches, slight pitting on a few pieces of chrome, driver's armrest deformed, cracked paint on tops of doors)
I have this listed locally and in Hemmings (where there are more photos). Therefore, I reserve the right to delete this listing.
