This auction is for my 1955 Buick Super. I bought this car about 4 years ago as the donor for my Century project. I’m selling it because the reality is I'm never going to do anything with it, and the car is too nice to part out. It has not run since it was parked in the early 1970’s. I haven’t tried to start it. Assume everything needs to be rebuilt.

I've just updated the pics to show the condition more accurately. The buy it now price reflects the value of a complete factory air conditioning system (if you had to source all the parts). The ac system is the same Frigidaire system used in the 53-56 Buick, and Cadillac (with minor variances). The car in parts is worth more than the asking price. I know, I had to purchase a bunch of parts for my Century. It's a treasure trove of rust free parts. Only missing taillight lenses, keys, bumper jack, and a battery.

The car still wears all original paint with some really cool patina, and desirable options like power steering, power brakes, factory air conditioning, power seat, Selectronic radio (Buick’s Wonderbar) including the optional foot switch and rear seat speaker, day/night mirror, and tinted glass. It was also ordered with (rare) tri-color paint ADB-1 (A- Carlsbad Black upper, D- Windsor Grey mid, and B- Dover White lower with Red Wheels). Must have been really sharp when new. The odometer reads 90K, and I assume it’s not rolled over.

The car is 95% rust free. Only the driver front floor needs a small patch about the size of your hand. (most Buick's I've worked on had a lot more floor pan rust). Additionally, some repair will be required to the transmission tunnel (not quite sure what happened there), but it appears to have been opened like a soup can. There is no rust anywhere else on the car, and no bondo. The Patina is unique too... usually it's not this even on both sides. Would look great cleared.

There are a few small dents around the car, and the hood has minor damage from being closed w/o lubricating the hinges, however it’s still perfectly straight, and rust free. The trim is in excellent condition both inside, and out. If you want to use the car for parts, almost everything is there to harvest. I resisted the temptation for years, but if nobody wants to save the car I will part it out.

Please look at all the images; they can explain the overall condition much better than I can. The price is fair for what it is. Email me with any questions/offers you have. It would make a cool father/son summer project.

The title is clear, however I never put the car in my name. The document goes back about 50 years with the previous title being recorded in March 1956. I wanted to keep the original lineage for the next owner.

$500 pay-pal deposit required within 24 hours. I may accept the entire amount, but that depends on the fees. The car must be paid for within 7 days, and picked up within 30 days. Car is sold as is where is. I can assist with loading, but the trailer must have a winch (car is non op).
