Here are a few pic's I had of the interior for those who asked. I take it that you guys don't think there's much of a chance of my finding someone who's restoring another '63 special that would want to take the whole thing off my hands just for the sake of the engine and/or tranny in addition to all of the usable parts? ~Dave
Thanks everybody for the sympathy, information, and support. I wish I would have discovered this board sooner. It seems like a really neat community and I'm glad to be a part of it. The engine is the "fireball" V-6. Not the aluminum one. Both the engine and the transmission should be in good running order as far as I can determine. That's why I was hoping that it would still be worth more than the $300 that a scrapyard would give me for it. The interior is that light blue. I believe the original color of the car was a silver or grey. If anyone has a use for any of the parts, go ahead
Well I'm looking to sell what's left of my 1963 Buick Special. I bought it at a local consignment auction in the summer of 2011 for what I thought was an amazing deal, $2,000. It was in really good drivable condition and, since I have never owned a vehicle purely for fun, I was thrilled to be able to tool around in it as it was. It suited me right down to the ground. It had this goofy flat black after market paint job with red wheels and details that I felt fit me and my personality perfectly. It brought me and the people I ran into when I was out and about driving it an awful lot of joy.
