This very rare Buick is a largely original Texas / Arizona car with some selective restoration. The car is exceptionally solid and was never a neglected car. 95% of the wood is original with the only replacement in the area below the tailgate. Much of the chrome has been re-plated with the exception of the outside door handles that are pitted.

The car starts easily and drives beautifully at highway speeds. The intake / exhaust manifolds were recently resurfaced and the gaskets renewed. The Buick has been used regularly on weekends and exhibited at local car shows.

The Delco front and rear lever action shock absorbers were recently rebuilt professionally and the car drives and handles very nicely.
