1948 Buick Super 8 2 Door Sedanette. Three speed. 61,000 origional miles.

Lots of new or nos parts. Runs and drives great. An exceptional origional car.

Been in dry storage since 1974. One owner Texas car. Very sound

solid. For info call Charlie 512-331-6500. $9,000.

I don't want to sound like a know it all but I would consider just putting it on ebay. It looks like a sound project car. IMO, $7900 is still too much in this soft market for restoration projects, even low mileage ones like yours.

Paint and body work on that car will be $10,000 unless a person does it themselves. Interior another $5000-$6000.

A restored #2 Buick sedanette is a $15,000 to $24,000 car but then the market shrinks considerably.

ebay will reach a pretty wide audience, even hot rodders who may want a low mileage Texas car to start with. With ebay (not my favorite marketplace) a person can start high and toggle it down each auction if not sold. Each auction presentation will add somebody that missed the car earlier....
