With proper V8 power, detailed classic style, and an awesome sealed-in patina, this 1955 Buick Special is a terrific and unique vintage cruiser.

The paint is what makes this Buick Special truly special. It looks like this could have been the original application, and it has been allowed to show its age with what appears to be a true patina. But while this wears the erosion of time, it's actually now frozen in time. That's because there's a clearcoat protecting the whole car now. So it has sealed in this unique and well-earned style. These have some noteworthy brightwork, and this one is clean and complete. Areas like the big intricate bumpers have a bright shine to go well with the clearcoat, but it's not overdone, so they fit in with the classic patina attitude. The hood ornament, white roof, factory wheel covers, tailfins, and wraparound glass both front & rear is all about a detailed package that makes a Buick desirable.

The interior is the right mix of preservation and investments. The seat and side panels have been updated later in life. They give you better completeness without taking away from the vintage style. And the durable rubber floor means you won't be nervous when the whole family wants to go for a ride. You'll enjoy slipping into the driver's seat, because the classic steering wheel looks great, right down to the Buick center cap. The smooth dash, clean gauges, and bright detail give the right quality classic car vibes.

If you love the look of authenticity, then you'll love the style under the hood. It's a classic Buick nailhead V8. It has the right aged-in look to go with the rest of the car, and there are all the right details, including the big air grabber and Delco-Remy generator. The V8 continues to have a strong-running nature. The column-shifted three-speed manual transmission gives you proper control while keeping the vintage feeling. So it keeps a good cruiser attitude, especially because these Buicks are known for a good ride. Plus, those tires are actually modern radials disguised as classic whitewalls. So you get improved ride and handling while still coordinating with the white roof.

This is the affordable classic with a ton of distinction, so don't miss this super Buick Special. Call today!!!
