1955 Buick Century Convertible - $10,000 obo


Recommended Posts

This is a solid convertible that has been in my garage for the past 16 years, only 5558 produced. The engine is complete and turns over, the transmission was apart when I bought the car but I have a '56 Super dynaflow that goes with the car. The engine and transmission are now in the car (new torque ball kit installed and new front motor mounts). Body is pretty solid needs drivers floor pan, included and floor patched under rear seat. Doors are rust free (Passenger door has had dents pulled out). Driver’s front fender is rust free and Passenger fender has small amount at headlight chrome. Trunk and Trunk lid are rust free. Frame and body mounts look good (have pictures that I can send). The front header bow is rusted and the convertible seats and rear arm rests were gone when I bought the car. I have original driver’s door panel and rear quarter panels, hardtop seats and panels go with car. Send me a PM and I will be able to give more Photos of the car and any items that I know are missing.

Rarely seen solid project car. Price of admission to a desirable 50's Buick convertible, here you go. Thanks for posting. How has the hunting gone for the header bow? In other words, are they available?

Shoooot, Mikey at Middleton Antique Auto Restoration could make that like new in a New York Minute....

(A New York minute is an instant. Or as Johnny Carson once said, it's the interval between a Manhattan traffic light turning green and the guy behind you honking his horn)

Interesting, maybe we can pin down what OBO means. I know it is or best offer, but I never found out the terms. Does the seller collect offers over a certain time period and let the best offer have the car, or is something else implied? Is there a time limit to take offers? Is the a minimum offer allowed? I've never used the term myself.
