1950 Buick Roadmaster
Buick Roadmaster Flxible combination (hearse/Ambulance). I consider this as a "Ratrod" style Hearse. Although it retains most of it's original parts, except the interior. Interior needs finished. It has had the front floors repaired and 8' 4"x4" treated wood posts now serve as rocker panels, no other rust other than undercarriage surface. Also has had three side windows professionaly filled. Same owner for 37 years. Stored inside since 1990, has not seen rain or snow since. Complete modern power brake system with all lines and hoses/wheel cylinders having been replaced.Engine gaskets replaced too. The Dynaflow transmission and torque tube have the usual fluid leaks but have not gotten worse in the last 37 years. Just add a little fluid once or twice a year.Needs painted up the way you want, or drive as is with the flat black epoxy primer. Buick LeSabre power seats (they work) and GM minivan rear seats. All leather. Electric cooling fan, and windshield wipers. Side windows and rear windows are heavy plexiglass. Windshield is original and good shape. One small chip that has not changed since 1983. New High torque mini starter fires up the inline 8 easily.Newer 4 barrel carb ( on 2 to 4 barrel adapter )with manual choke.New gas tank.Mileage is accurate. Shows on title as "30,000 actual miles" ( That is from 1983. I have run it up to 53,500 in 37 years.) Tires have excellent tread.Some NOS and rechromed bumper/grill parts. A lot of it except the main bumpers. They are pretty nice for 70 years old.12 volt electrics. Electric fuel pump too.New heavy cast manifolds installed 25 years ago, and they still have not cracked! ( as all the original, thinner walled 3 piece manilfolds (exhaust) did. Dual exhaust ( straight pipe split into two tailpipes ).Drives fine down the highway at 55-65 mph.Lights and gauges work ( not original gauges)Has been sitting almost a year now but I will have it ready to drive on to a trailer. With 5 Gallons of fresh fuel, it is almost empty now. Should make it fine a few hundred miles on her own but would trailer any farther than that ( as with any 70 year old car.)This is not something you can put back to original. The parts are simply not out there, or reproduced. It is just something to put your own style, or touch to.I have extra parts, like some chrome and old brake parts and whatnot. All that goes with her too.Her name is The Black Pearl.I have listed her before but thought I would give it a shot again. If she does not sell I may try again in a few years. I'm not too old, yet.Any payment method must clear before you can take the hearse, or get the title.You Can leave here indefinately, if paid in full, awaiting pickup.Mannequin goes with her.It would mean a lot to me for her to go to a good home, so I would appreciate photos of her progress if you will.Thanks for reading all this. If you want to have this shipped, I can drive to Lebanon or Frankfort Indiana for a transport to pick up. All payments fir shipping need to be handled by buyer. Also, this Hearse needs to have been paid in full ( cashier check or other must have cleared. ) I may be interested in a '70-'72 Chevelle project or parts. 2 door coupe only.
