1951 Buick 41D Special Deluxe SedanThis beautiful ride belonged to a local physician from 1951 to 2009. While the car was still considered a good driver, the 2nd owner all but did a frame off restoration on the car.
He pulled the motor and transmission and had the motor completely rebuilt, and the transmission was torn down and all components gone through and replaced what needed and otherwise completely serviced the transmission. A new 12v starter was installed, brakes serviced, & new exhaust front to back. He has completely redone the interior, minus the headliner which is still the original, and is in great condition. As there was no rust in floor pan and trunk areas he resealed and placed the new carpet, and had the entire car repainted as well. Floors and trunk are all solid. Every light, signal etc works on the car, even the factory AM Radio works, and it is currently inspected and ready to hit the road!
Gas tank was also replaced, and the car was converted to 12v. Every gauge works with the exception of the clock and the odometer. It was said to be working prior to the transmission rebuild, cannot verify that or the mileage to be a fact. However from the overall condition of the car, and knowing it has been here local all of it's life it's very possible. I do know the 2nd owner has not driven the car even 100 miles, and it has been garage kept. I drove the car about 30 miles to my home when I purchased it and it drove absolutely perfect! And yes the old girl gets some looks for sure! **If you see some small 'black dots' in some of the photos, and then not in some, I had to take photos while fighting off what we call here in East Texas as 'Love Bugs.' With all the rain we have been getting they are bad. So please if you have questions about any photos, I can send more!
This Deluxe Special is just a cool old car. It is exactly as described and runs perfect. Whether you already own classics or are looking to get into one at an affordable price, this is going to make someone a great first collector car or a great addition to someones collection. If you desire any photos of any specific areas at all I will be glad to provide! There is absolutely nothing to hide on this old ride. Yeah, it's a 4 door, so what... it's still cool, and you can put your groceries in the back! And again, I will be glad to answer any specific questions and provide as many additional photos of the car as you would like. I am also going to do a short video of the car starting/running this coming weekend. It honestly runs amazing. While I have not sold many classics on ebay, what I have sold are all exactly as described, and I have received 100% positive ratings from the new owners, and that's the way I intend to keep it.
