No, this isn't just an old lady's car that she uses to get to the grocery store, the library, and wednesday afternoon Bingo. There's much more to this car - don't let the appearance fool you.
This big hunk of Detroit steel is finished in an understated, factory correct Glacier Blue color (Color Code 24) with an Arctic White Landau Top. The exterior does show its age in a few small places, but overall is in great condition. Trim, bumpers, and lights all show very well.
Under the hood is a 455ci Buick V8 engine mated to a TH400 Transmission. Under our client's ownership, the original engine and transmission were replaced by a professionally rebuilt driveline from a '75 Estate Wagon. Other highlights of the drivetrain are an aluminum radiator, custom exhaust, posi-rear end, and custom finished driveshaft. Power brakes give this car much needed stopping assistance, and classic, chromed wheels wrapped in white stripe tires finish off the look of the exterior.
Take a close look at the paisley seats - they ought to remind you of your grandmother's living room set. All that's missing are a flowery chair, flowery curtains, silk flowers, and a gold framed glass-top table with a small plate of Fig Newtons resting atop it. Regardless of memories of relatives, the interior in this car is in great condition. A shiny B&M shifter has been neatly installed on the floor. Oil Pressure, and engine temperature gauges have been added in a wood panel on the dashboard, and a small tachometer was added to the steering column to help keep tabs on the large displacement Buick V8. All trim, door panels, headliner, and carpet are also in great condition!
Overall this Buick is a great package. If a few people call it a granny's car don't let that bother you, for goodness sakes, this thing has a 455 under the hood!
