Well, after much thought (and discussion with my wife :() I have decided to sell this ol feller. I bought it fresh out of the barn where it sat since the early 80"s. It was trucked out (early 80"s) from Nebraska where it was originally purchased to here in Texas. It was last registered in 1966 and has 66,000 original miles on it. I plan on getting it running because people have asked me if the motor is froze up or any good. I will get the motor fired up sometime this week.... I hope, that is all Im going to do to it. I have not even washed the dirt and dust off of it. The rust appears to be surface rust only with the bumpers showing signs of some pretty good pitting. Need more pictures, let me know.

Thanks

Rob

It's not a Special. It has Airfoil styling so it must be a Super or a Roadmaster. Airfoil styling is what Buick called the continuous fender line from front to back through the doors.

Specials had the front fender end before the front doors.

Oil could very well be 1966, the original owner passed in 1966 and it sat. It was trucked to Texas in the early 80's ( where the son lived who inherited it) and was drove around the neighborhood breifly then parked, again. He passed and I bought it.

Brakes are shot, tires are shot but hold air nicely since I put new tubes in em. Interior is original I think, needs redone. I never messed with the tank, just disconnected the fuel line at the carb and ran a temporary fuel supply. Oil pressure is around 35 at idle. Both front glasses are cracked, the only ones.

Ask away...

I would suggest putting it on Craigslist locally and also in some big cities like Dallas and Houston. It's free and you won't have to deal with people thousands of miles away. Just use a different email address with each ad. Good luck....

well, this is the last shot at selling it here before doing something different. Have some people wanting to do a rat rod thing, I was hoping somebody here would save it, I guess not. (cant believe its to much money, i guess I should have asked 500 bucks)

Thanks for you for your time, you have a good forum.

later
