FULL LISTING at 1953 BUICK SPECIAL, Built into a One-of-a-kind BIG BLOCK RestoMod that literally be driven every day, or saved for Sunday car shows. It is loud, fast, brash, and just stupid fun for the money. DO NOT BUY THIS CAR IF YOU ARE is the ultimate head turner, so be prepared to make new friends. This car gets respect and appreciation from a diverse cast of automotive enthusiasts, gear-heads and bikers. This is a One of a Kind Harley-Davidson inspired RestoRod with an Interesting Recent Past. About 10 years ago the last owner found the car in essentially all original condition. He engaged multiple professional restoration shops to rebuild the car into a useable resto-rod with a bad attitude. It was built to be driven every day if desired. In the decade following the original transformation, the car had undergone ongoing improvements, all aimed at keeping the car a reliable piece of rolling automotive art. The 455 cubic inch Buick big block roars to life every time, the suspension quickly pumps its air suspension to driving level, all in preparation for your smokey tire-burning exit from the local burger hop. For full effect, I suggest adding exhaust flame throwers so you can enjoy the sheer terror on the faces of timid onlookers! This car is meant to be a little and keep her moving! The car was originally equipped with a very large Buick Straight 8 Cylinder engine. The Owner was not happy with the performance, so he installed a very healthy 455 Cubic Inch beast sourced from a 1971 Buick Riviera...a very nice choice! Power is pumped through a three-speed automatic transmission that is simple to operate. -The air suspension operates from a compressor hidden in the trunk of the car. Each corner can be individually adjusted if desired using the handheld controller inside the car. A gauge set is mounted in the car to report front, rear, and compressor tank pressures. The tires are restoration white wall radials, that look the part but are also safe and reliable modern rubber. The condition of the bodywork, paint, trim and brightwork is consistent with a 10 year old restoration that looks respectable, but is not perfect. The door handles have been shaved, contributing to the badass vibe of this car. The car can be enjoyed just like it is, or taken to another level if you desire. If you expect condition consistent with a $100k restoration, then find and spend that amount on another car. -The interior door panels and seats were rebuilt and re-upholstered, and the carpet and headliner were replaced and look great. The dashboard retains its original patina and a modern audio head unit has been mounted in the glovebox. Functional modern gauges include the essentials; oil pressure, water temp and voltmeter. The glass appears to be original, however the driver side window is cracked, as is one corner of the right rear quarter window. Another area needing attention is the spare compartment in the trunk. -Clear PA Title as Shown with mileage "Exempt" as required for vintage vehicles. -Stack of restoration photos, receipts, manuals and a box of some original parts is included.
