Corner stone of any collection. One of only 2935 built - mostly hand assembled, survival rate of 4.6% (estimated by Town and Country chapter) Approximately 150 are left to enjoy.
I am representing the estate of the recently passed collector, who had an eclectictaste for automobiles. From military jeeps to dual-ghias. If he liked something he bought it, without regard to cost. This car was only in his collection for two years before his unfortunate passing. Restored by William F Buckley of Massachusetts for his personal collection.

No expenses spared in refurbishing to exact specifications. All the sheet metal is original never rusted or damaged. Virgin car to start with retains is original born with drivetrain. Eight cylinder 323.5 c.u. engine - 135 h.p. - 204 ft.lbs. of torque. Built on New Yorker 127.5 wheelbase chassis overall length 217”

Presented in the best color combination of Newport blue - trimmed in bedford cloth and premium blue leather interior. Runs-Drives-shifts properly-dependable-starts right up (hot or cold). All gauges function. Good road manners runs at 180 Degrees all day in south Florida weather.

The car commands attention every time its driven. Used sparingly during our ownership, maintained frequently. You are purchasing directly from the estate, my position is a repair shop owner, repairing and servicing hi line European models and collector cars on a day to day basis. This gentleman was my customer and friend for over 20 years. We have no reason to tell any stories. Just giving you the facts. I have documents to support all of our claims, come see for yourself. Take a road test! Inspect the car thoroughly. no disappointments. If your looking for this type of car - look no further. Priced well below any average for a car in this condition - research available for inspection. Other sellers are asking 150k-200k for a car in similar condition. The heirs would like to get cars of the books and move forward, but they know the true value and just want a reasonable sales price. This is a huge estate so the last dime doesn't matter.

The next car will be a 1954 Oldsmobile starfire convertible - a knockout in every way. Also available - 1962 Cadillac DeVille convertible factory bucket seat car - spectacular.
