Streetside Classics-Dallas/Fort Worth

Its lavish exterior instantly evokes images of a time when prohibition was just being lifted and the World's Fair in Chicago was celebrating "A Century of Progress." This 1933 Buick Series 57 Streetrod is a looker all right, and it also features smooth running power under its lengthy hood, as well as a nice collection of features you won't often find on cars in its niche. And, having logged just a little over 8,500 miles since its build (and less than 200 miles on the new 350 Crate V8 that includes a 4-year warranty), it offers the promise of plenty of future, fun-filled miles.
This generously proportioned '30s classic sports a great looking paint job, with its Silver cabin complemented by the Graphite Gray Metallic running along its sweeping fenders and floorboards. It features a sturdily constructed steel body (and yes, even the fenders and running boards are steel!), so there'll be no worries about the stress cracks that can occur with its fiberglass-clad counterparts. There are plenty of great details to admire here - the overall fit and finish of this car looks great and you'll find full size spares with matching wheels mounted on both front fenders. In front, a pair of fog lights sit below the prominently-sized headlights on the fresh, straight bumper while in back, the thoroughly vintage look of the chrome luggage rack with its vinyl lined storage trunk joins a third brake light molded into the body for added visibility and safety in real world driving. Every other additional piece of chrome on display also looks to be in top form.
The custom-built gray interior shows a lot of workmanship and is very well-appointed and comfortable, with a pair of tweed covered front buckets that have yet to develop any discoloration from use. Both the snug fitting headliner above and the plush carpet lining the floor are nice finishing details, as is the added console that houses an assortment of well-placed switches to operate a number of the interior functions. Along with all of its timeless vintage charm, there are some really welcome comfort and convenience features on board that make frequent driving a pleasure, including a tilt column, power windows and door locks, power bucket seats, and air conditioning that's blowing nice and cold. You'll have no shortage of audio options, the Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo offers AUX/USB ports to connect an outside source and is also compatible with satellite radio. There's a collection of SS White Industrial gauges mounted inside a billet bezel on the dash to keep tabs on vital motoring functions, and the LeCarra steering mounted on a tilt column provides plenty of room in the cockpit. The rear bench seat matches the front buckets with room for 3, while out back the rear steam trunk was lined with carpet inside and can carry light luggage.
This classic Buick offers a great driving experience. The 350 cubic inch V8 crate motor fitted into its tapered engine compartment runs very smoothly - it was installed less than 200 miles ago (when the odometer read 8,394 miles) and is equipped with a 4-barrel Edelbrock carb, an aluminum intake, long-tube headers and an HEI ignition to up its performance, as well as a number of chrome-finished components for added eye candy. Just behind it is a 4-speed automatic 700R4 transmission whose overdrive gear makes for engine-sparing, low revs at highway speeds. The added Mustang II front end provides a wealth of benefits, including power front disc brakes, a responsive and precise power rack and pinion steering, a rear sway bar, and a nice smooth ride thanks to the heavy-duty frame and suspension. 15" wire wheels at all four corners wearing 235/60/15 front and 255/70/15 rear BF Goodrich T/A radials complete the look of this magnetic classic.
It's not often that you come across the combination of stylistic flair and strong drivability offered by this 1933 Buick Series 57 Streetrod. Call today!
