1948 BUICK SPECIAL CUSTOM C-704 This stunning 1948 Buick Special, otherwise known as a Model 46-S, has been restored to beautiful condition with numerous custom touches. It is a pre-war B-body that is considered a 2-Door Sedanette. The top has been chopped, and the car has been painted in a beautiful two-tone maroon and silver finish. An exterior sun visor and exterior spot lights have been added to complete the custom look. The interior has been fully upholstered in a matching beautiful cloth color scheme of maroon with silver colored inserts. The headliner and trunk have also been re-done to match the eye-catching color scheme. Underneath the classic double side-opening hood, sits a GM 350ci V-8 engine. Mated to an TH400 automatic transmission, this Buick has plenty of power to cruise down the road with ease. Fuel management is handled by an Edelbrock Performer 4-barrel carburetor, sitting atop a matching Edelbrock Performer intake manifold. An aluminum radiator has been installed with an additional auxiliary radiator and electric fan, so overheating will not be a problem. It does have power steering and power brakes (Front: disc; Rear: drum). Independent front suspension with an added sway bar give this car more control over the road. Not to mention, it sits on an airbag suspension system for added versatility/comfort or to drop it to the ground at a car show. Although this car is a custom, it retains an original stance with whitewall tires, original style hubcaps, and rear wheel skirts. Some custom touches and creature comforts include: billet steering wheel and column, A/C, heater, power windows, power door locks, 8-way adjustable power seats (driver & passenger), and an updated instrument panel w/ Dolphin gauges. The conversion to a 12V charging system has already been completed, which makes working on the electrical system a breeze. This beautiful Buick is sure to look good in any car collection. ***If you are viewing this on Facebook Marketplace, be sure go to our website to view all photos.
