1953 Buick
Up for sale is a 1953 Buick Roadmaster "Barn Find". The car is over-all straight and solid. It does not have a title, and will be sold on a Bill Of Sale only. Ebay wouldn't let me put that in the title area of this listing.
Looks to be original paint with primer showing through in places, giving it the perfect "Patina" look if that's what you like. There are a couple spots on the roof where the paint is peeling and a couple minor dents on top as well. There is a dent or two on the back of the trunk lid and a small crease in the drivers door. All of which are fairly minor and can be seen in the pictures.
The Floor pans have typical rusted out places, but are not completely gone like most cars. Someone had "patched" the front floor pan with a piece of sheet metal and couple of license plates. (See pictures) The rockers, lower fenders, and lower quarters all seem to be real solid. (See pictures) The trunk floor is solid for the most part with the exception of a small area at the back right side that has a little "rust through". (See picture)
The windshield and back glass are not broke. The rest of the glass is either cracked or has typical bubbled places. (See pictures)
All of the stainless trim is on the car and in pretty good shape.
Looks to have the original interior which is in fairly rough shape, yet all there.
322 c.i. 'Nailhead' V8 with 2 spd automatic transmission. Condition of the engine and transmission are unknown. The engine will turn over by hand with a ratchet, but it is tight.
The car will need to be towed. It will roll freely. None of the wheels/ brakes are locked up. I can help with loading onto a trailer. Car is located in Shirley Arkansas.
