1970 Buick Other estate
This is a 1970 Buick Estate station wago, ith what my uncle thought was the original mileage 46,637 mile on the odomete, y uncle said this car ran and drove good when he parked it 30 years ago in a old farm barn of his so it is a true barn find car . He had thoughts of restoring it and just never got to i, t was last on the road in 1979 . The north Carolina sticker is still on the window from when he bought i, e has since lost the paper work for it so we don't have the registration for it . The whole car in complete as it was back in the day unmolested unaltered right down to the factory Buick 8 Track player . Also it has the 455 -4 370hp buick engine that produced 510 ft lb. of torque and has the 400 turbo transmission . Back in the day this car was have said when they were factory new to turn the quarter mile in 16.2 sec. 0-60 in 7.6 seconds 0-100 in 8.9 seconds and it got 12.7 milesper gallon highway miles and 10.5 mpg city which in this big car is pretty good all the way around . The car has options like Factory installed 8 track player that says Buick across the fron, m/fm factory radi, ir conditioning A, ower windows/ locks , ower brake, power steerin, isc brake, limate control temperature contro, ear tail gate that opens both down and side way, and has the famouse way back fold up seat that folds down into the back floor and when folded up faces out the back window . For the most part the car is in great shape for its ag, he rocker panels are soli, here are some rust spots . The spare tire half round on the bottom is rusted out somewhat . The front floors are rusted out in toward the middl, he back floors have a couple of rust spots but not real bad . The drivers fender is rusted out behind the front tir, he battery box is rusted out . The bottoms of the doors are still pretty solid and all the doors close nice with out even closing them hard . The interior is in great shape for its ag, ll complete right down to the ash trays knobes and dash switchs . All the door panels are nice and complet, he front driver seat lower is ripped and torn the rest look to be nice . The inside panel is off the rear tail gate and is laying in the back . pictured are a pile of parts my uncle had bought to begin restoring the car . The front lower supports that go toward the front bumper look like they have been rewelded , y uncle thought the car was in a front end accident at some point and the car was fixed and repaired before he got it . We did put a battery in it and got it to turn ove, ut we have not started it . The dome lights came on and the dash lit up like it would run if tinkered with a little more . Again we don't have the paper work for it . Would make a great Project car is solid enough or would make a great rat rod project the 455 would make a great hot rod engine .This is Truly like the Family Truckster That theGriswalds took on there trip to wally world right down to the wood grain sides trim .
