1962 Buick Special V6

Recommended Posts

I am looking to sell my 1962 Buick Special. What do you guys think is a fair asking price? I was thinking around $6,000.

I have been lurking in the forums for a while, nothing substantive to add as of yet.

198 V6, runs great...I do not know if it has ever been rebuilt, but, doesn't look like it to me. It doesn't smoke on start-up or when driving. It does have a small coolant leak from the water pump gasket, but, only when cold & sitting.

The body is strait & solid, has a good base/clear paint.....I was told it was done around 10 years ago

It has a little rust under the paint where the sail panels meet the rear fender, but, it isn't bad.

It was built in Southgate, California, sold in California where it remained until a few years ago.

Sequence #959, built in the first week of February

The original color was Willow Mist Metallic and it had/has Fawn Cloth / Vinyl

If you are interested, send an email & I will send a phone #

Old Car Price Guide puts a # 4 Special 2 Dr Coupe is $3500 # 3 is $7,880 - so somewhere in between those numbers - the average of those two is $5,690 - Sounds like he is starting price is not way out of line. Not a high demand car though so it may be a tough sell.

It looks like a great little car to zip around in and get some decent gas mileage while doing it.

As stated above, would make a fantastic car to get you into the hobby.

2 speed auto...I traded a hot rod 82 Chevy truck for it. I'm not in any hurry to sell it. My family likes cruising around in it. If it doesn't sell, I plan to paint the top & sides silver & have Classic Soft Trim do the interior. Either way I'm happy.
