  1. Kevin , auctions are certainly fun to attend .. Matt's post is "dead on " and excellent advice for the novice buyer . The 1970 Buick GS listed appears to be a base model GS 350 .. A very well documented one BTW. I've bought and sold at auction , set a price record or two in the process ... lost a bunch of money as well ! Use all your senses ! Eyes, ears, nose.. and most of all use common sense ! Know what you are looking at. Good cars do bring good money , they don't need any help getting "real money" Bid what you think its worth... All in home.. (fees, transport , misc.) Every car needs something when you get it home.. that's a guarantee .. I like this Buick .. It should generate a few real bids.. Dealers will not overpay for a GS350 coupe . Lack of a/c hurts ,steering wheel cover certainly doesn't help either and I'll bet its loaded with under coating. I own a GS ... Love it .. Great driving car.. Good luck at the Sale..........
  2. I have a few regrets as well! Both Cadillac convertibles . My black over red "48 and my near perfect 1962 . I really miss the '62 the most, It was the best car riding and handling big car I ever owned !!! If anyone has either or and is interested in trading towards my Buick, I'm all ears ! The suggestion about the photography is duly noted .. I have contacted a highly skilled friend who also said I should throw my camera in the trash ! Thank's again; Frank.......
  3. https://www.ebay.com/itm/123811481865?ViewItem=&item=123811481865&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:MOTORS:1123 Life gets in the way sometimes .... I never registered for the Hershey auction.. To late to get a decent number now, so, I'll give e-bay a shot. I truly do not expect to sell it there (especially with my terrible photography) but I thought you may enjoy the story associated with my Buick. Best Regards , Frank..
  4. To all , I thank you and this forum for both your time and the free ad. The Buick received an invitation from Hemming's for the concours.. It's a great show, I enjoyed it when we displayed there in the past. The car will then be consigned to the Hershey auction in Oct. Thanks Again, Frank
  5. Up for offer is my 1941 Buick super convertible ... This 1998 AACA grand national champion is not only stunning , it performs as well . Fully restored by Ralph Baldwin , Its arrow straight with flawless paint. The interior, top, steering wheel ,chrome was all handled by Jenkins restoration. 22 years later, it still could win every award again! Fully detailed under carriage shows as well the exterior.. All receipts are available and were in excess of 70k Asking $77,500.00 ..;' I researched the market ,compared mine to the car currently on E-Bay priced higher . Look at his then look at mine , There is a difference especially in the engine compartment and under carriage. Please accept my apologies for the photos (raining very hard here) The upholstery is perfect ,so please disregard the towel on the front seat.. Located In Roxbury Connecticut, Better photos soon...

  11. I still have the '34 Chevy. I really would like to sell this for the estate, so I've reduced the price to $21,000. This car is really cool in a shabby chic sort of way. Absolutely rust free, with excellent wood. I honestly believe the paint is original. This car, unfortunately, doesn't fit into my collection, but I will accept trades, up or down, to settle this estate. I always like wagons, pickups, or convertibles. Let me know what you've got. If you know anybody who wants this car, I will gladly pay a commission. Please see pictures in post #2. My contact information is right there too. Best regards -- Frank
  12. Sold: '39 Buick, '65 442. and Hurst Olds. 1934 Chevy is still available. Regards --Frank.
  13. Hey folks. Thanks for the replies. Although they didn't result in any sales, I appreciate them. The 1934 Chevrolet was scratched from the auction. I decided that Carlisle was probably the wrong venue. I substituted a very nice 1972 Hurst Olds with a power sun roof. A very rare car, indeed. On the '34 Chevy, if anyone has any serious interest, I will also entertain trades. The other cars will be sold on Thursday, 4/26, probably around 5:00 or 6:00 p.m. If anybody's around, stop and say hello. Best regards -- Frank
  14. These cars are probably going to the Carlisle auction in two weeks. The 1934 Chevy Roadster and the 1939 Century belonged to a very good friend of mine who passed away a few years ago. I am selling these for the Estate. The '34 Roadster is actually an Australian version assembled by Holden, and converted back to left-hand drive. It has mostly original paint in outstanding condition. Original leather, still nice. Top in very poor condition. I'd like to obtain $29,000 for this car. The Buick Century is a black 4-door in what I would consider to be condition 3+. Black in color, twin side mount, excellent running vehicle. Asking $22,500. The 1965 442 hard top, red with red interior, white painted roof. Bucket seat, column shift, automatic. Factory A/C. Mostly original paint. Absolutely the best running Oldsmobile I have ever driven. This car belongs to my shop foreman. Asking a very reasonable $13,750. I will try to add some pictures tomorrow, but would appreciate serious callers. I prefer to sell these cars via private treaty, but if not, all cars will be sold at the auction. Please call for details and viewing.
