    1958 Roadmaster $19,500 77,000 miles

    It's a compelling car. Top of the line 58 Buick in a conservative color, no white roof is a plus for me. Low mileage and all the checks checked off - chrome OK, grille OK, for under $20,000. Brass Is Best has a 58 Cadillac 60 Fleetwood up top for $110,000 firm. Would be nice to know what Lancemb knows. I do like the length and breadth of the ad. Usually you get one line.

    Twelve Dilapitated Lincolns 1925 to 1938

    I bid $70,000. That's how I know. Thankfully it does not shoot up to your maximum.

    1970 Ford XL Convertible

    What is the super low price? I don't see it. Beautiful non typical car you have for sale. I love them, especially with bucket seats and console.

    1936 Chrysler Airflow on Hemmings

    I can't figure that paint out. It's kind of like the paint on the 48 Chrysler New Yorker for sale that I placed on here. It's original or a good repaint, not bad enough to repaint, but not show car shiny like most folks want.

    1934 Nash Big 6 $4500

    Cable looks correct. Note that there is a machined threaded area in the manifold to accept the 2nd pulley. Not sure why Nash would have set their carb up that way. But it appears factory, maybe not. You are fairly close to the car, you should go get it! Has been on CL and other places for awhile.

    1936 Chrysler Airflow on Hemmings

    I had a 36 C9, so this wheelbase is even longer. Since Airflows are "hot" right now, I think this price is pretty good, and it says negotiable. I don't buy cars to appreciate in value, I purchase for the hobby interest. But it seems like these will appreciate in value over the next few years.

    1934 Nash Big 6 $4500

    This caught my eye because the magazine Collectible Automobile did a feature on these years. I read it carefully. I am a big Airflow fan, especially 35-37. These Nash's were in that styling family and I believe it was considered a bit risky for Nash. It appears they have ruined that grille. How the heck is someone going to find that grille? Nearly impossible. But it is a neat find.

    1948 Chevrolet Other Pickups

    I saw this ad and these are fun trucks to restore because of huge hobby parts support. Iconic appearance, fun and relatively easy to drive. On this one, I paused because it is a 3/4 ton. These are harder to get some parts for, performance is not as good owing to steeper gears. 8 lug wheels v 6 lug.
  9. https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/cto/d/1958-buick-riviera-roadmaster/6756900721.html Not mine. 1958 Buick Roadmaster VIN: 7b7010710 condition: good cylinders: 8 cylinders drive: rwd fuel: gas odometer: 77000 paint color: black title status: clean transmission: automatic type: sedan The King of Chrome! More chrome than any car in history.High-end Buick Roadmaster--not one of the lower end models!Very rare and increasing in value!I am a private owner. Not a dealer or flipper. Clean Illinois title in my name. I am the 3rd owner of this car. Both previous owners lived in Rhode Island where the car was originally purchased. It still has the chrome Hoxie Buick emblem on the trunk lid from where it was purchased in RI. I have a little bit of paperwork from previous owners for some history, although you always wish you had more.ExteriorThe exterior of the car is in excellent condition. No rust. It was restored by the previous owner in 2004 and was done very well. It was repainted the original color. Not a cheap paint job. Really well done. The undercarriage of the car was undercoated at some point in history and because of that it has been preserved better than almost any 58 buick I've ever seen. The previous owner also spent 25K to have all of the lower chrome rechromed. This is more than my asking price. The rear and front bumpers look great. Rear bumpers are almost always rusted out on 58 Buicks. There are a few small door dings in a couple of chrome pieces but nothing too noticeable. All of the typical trouble spots on 58 Buicks look great. The stainless around the windows doesn't look as nice as the lower chrome. It has lost its shine in places. It will need to be buffed out. Expensive wide white wall tires are like new. Matching spare in the trunk. Entire exhaust was redone in the past 3000 miles. Glass is good.InteriorThe interior is all original. For 60 years old, it isn't bad, but it doesn't match the splendor of the exterior. The headliner will need replaced at very minimum. Interior chrome around the windows has some pitting. The driver's seat foam has deteriorated so you feel the springs as you sit. Front seat has some seams pulling apart and a small 1inch tear from the springs. Back seats look good. Door panels are ok, but have a few tears and are pulling up at some seams. The hard-to-find dash pad that goes all the way across is in good shape. That is a typical problem area. The covering that goes between the windshield and the dash pad is pulling up in a couple areas. All in all, the interior is driver quality. It is usable as is, but could be upgraded over time. DrivetrainIt has the original 364 nailhead engine. Numbers match. It was rebuilt in 2004. I also had the carb rebuilt this summer and changed all filters, plugs and wires. It runs well. You can drive it at highway speeds. It has the rare Flight Pitch transmission. Another advantage you don't find in the lower end models of 58 buicks. The transmission shifts smoothly and works great. I spent a lot of money to have the brake booster and master cylinder rebuilt this summer. I still have to press down harder on the brake pedal than I should, so I think it needs some adjustment. It is drivable as is. MechanicalGauges all work, except the speedometer. (They rarely do on 58 buicks). It has the rare Wonderbar radio. It turns on, but doesn't find a station. It may be that there is something wrong with the antenna hook-up? I never bothered trying to figure it out. The car has power windows. The front two windows work great. The back two move, but need some adjustment to go fully up or down. I don't think the windshield wipers work. This is a factory non-AC car. It still has the pedal-start feature from the 58 Buick which can be a little finicky at times, but it does always start for me.International BuyersWilling to work with overseas buyers.QuestionsPlease ask any questions. This would make a great original classic for the right buyer. Probably a great investment for the future as well. I wish I could keep it, but I hope to find someone else who will enjoy it.

    1934 Nash Big 6 $4500

    https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/cto/d/1934-nash-big-6-original-barn/6746388499.html Not Mine. Rare. Too bad it appears the grille is damaged. Not sure where you would find a replacement.
  13. https://desmoines.craigslist.org/cto/d/1959-ford-retractable/6740311076.html Spotted this as well, not mine. I like finding iconic different cars but always thought these retractables were either really nice (i.e. $40,000) or rusted out and too expensive to restore ($7000) This might be a good car for decent money. Been on CL a month, maybe snag it for a few bucks less.

  15. https://desmoines.craigslist.org/cto/d/1940-nash-barn-find-22-years/6766099514.html ** Not Mine ** I thought this was interesting with there being such an emphasis on the cost of cars in the hobby. Here you see a true antique car, a car which carries all the styling cues and curiosities of that time, with what appears like an original interior, and a quality repaint, presentable, runs and drives for the entry fee into the hobby of maybe $7000 or so. 40 Lafayette. Looks like 1941 Willys. Excl cond after 23 years of sitting in dry storage. 55K actual miles. Minimal rust. Very solid. Excl interior and glass. Starts and drives. Heater works. Collector plates. Nice old classic. No scammers 95 two 79 7 36 14 Ken I am not sure about the Lafayette tag. Wasn't that gone by 1940? Maybe I am getting this car confused with the Studebaker entry level car, the Champion.
