Exterior: *Condition #3+

This vehicle shows absolutely gorgeous and the body has an absolutely amazing fit and finish and is completely rust-free. When it was restored it was given a very nice paint job finished in its correct factory colors of Tahiti Coral & Dover White. The beautiful paint job has been meticulously detailed to a deep shine, hand-rubbed to a smooth as glass finish, and will satisfy the pickiest of buyers. You can see that everything was correctly taken apart before it was painted. The body has an excellent fit and finish all over with great body lines and does not appear to ever have been hit or hurt and really has looks that just do not quit. Most of the chrome and trim was replaced but you can still see original chrome here and there that is in exceptional condition showing you how nice this vehicle really is. It has crystal clear glass with new weather stripping and all of the chrome, lights and emblems fit exactly as they should. It is sitting on its factory correct chrome wire wheels wrapped in like new BFGoodrich Silvertown wide white wall bias-ply tires. All of the glass is factory correct, crystal clear and is amazing like the rest of the car. Overall, the exterior is very very nice and has looks that just do not quit.

Interior: *Condition #3+

The interior on this Buick is absolutely beautiful finished in two-tone Black & Ivory cordaveen. All of the fabrics have been redone including the correct seat materials and the expensive factory correct carpet. The dash and gauge cluster is all original and looks super clean and is very bright as it should be. The headliner has been replaced as well as all of the rubbers. Everything in the back is very nice including the tailgate, rear glass and has it factory correct wide white wall spare. Everything works in the car including the horn, directionals, gauges, power windows, courtesy lights, and air conditioning. The only things that do not work are the clock and the A/C appears to need charged as it doesn't blow cold but everything is hooked up and it works. It is super clean and correct inside and you'll be hard pressed in finding another as nice as this. Overall the interior is in very nice condition and really needs nothing. This is one of the nicest mid 50's Buick interiors we have had the chance to be in and it won't disappoint.

Interior: *Condition #3+

Mechanically this vehicle is in top notch shape. It runs and drives like a top and starts up on the first step of the gas pedal.. It is one of the smoothest and nicest running and driving 56 Buick's we have ever had the pleasure of driving. It has its original 322ci Nailhead V8 mated to its original Dynaflow automatic transmission. It has factory power steering and power brakes which make it a true pleasure to drive as the car drives and brakes straight, stops on a dime. Under the hood is beautiful and is all correct to factory specs and really looks amazing. You can really see how much time and money went into restoring this beautiful classic. Mechanically this car is sound and ready to go and the only thing we would advise is to put a set of radial tires on it if you plan on going on longer trips but the bias-ply wide white walls that are on it do have plenty of tread life remaining on them.

Under Carriage: *Condition #3+

The under carriage on this vehicle is beautifully detailed and everything appears to be in excellent condition, exactly as it would have been from the factory. This has been a southwest car its whole life so there is zero rust and there doesn't appear to have been any repairs. It appears to have new brakes, new shocks, new exhaust and under coating at one time. You can see that there have been zero repairs on this car and that there has never been any rust at all. The exhaust looks and sounds phenomenal and looks truly as good as the exterior and interior.
