Roadmaster75

1958 Roadmaster 75 - all original - 40,000 mi.

Recommended Posts

With great regret, illness dictates that I must sell my old friend of 28 years.  I've been a BCA member since Spring of 1973.  #2954.

My preference is to sell this lovely car to a BCA member that will appreciate its originality and become the steward for it

for the next 20-30 years!  Not advertising it anywhere else at this time.

 

I acquired the car from the original owning family in 1989.  It had sat in their garage under a cover

for 17 years.  It had 31,800 on it when I picked it up.  The car is dead original and totally rust free.

It has one of the original tires for a spare in the trunk (8.00x15)

I have not touched it up anywhere; including under the hood. The car is "Silver Mist" in color with matching silver gray interior.

Paint is getting thin in spots on the front fenders.

The engine compartment is NOT detailed.  The car runs beautifully with its Flight Pitch Dynaflow.  The dash is perfect including

the pads.  It still has the customer instruction sticker on the clock!  I didn't want to remove it during all these years.  I have

most of the dealer delivery papers/tags that were on the car when new.  The power windows all work fine, the power seat works fine,

the speedo operates perfectly as does the "Speedminder" accessory.  The radio works fine.

 

I have many new and excellent used parts for the car that I have collected over the years; incl. NOS headlight sw., NOS hood eyebrow molding,

NOS windshield wiper control assembly, rebuilt master/power booster, one rebuilt Rochester 4GC and another awaiting a rebuild.  The car

has a Buick AFB on it, incl. the correct accelerator start switch.  I also have an entire differential with torque tube.  Two near perfect

aluminum 58 front brake drums go with it.  Lots of other little goodies go with the sale.

 

I recently put new rear springs on it from Detroit Eaton.  These put the car at its correct ride height.

I am asking $22,500 / with all the parts acquired.

I can send more pics upon request.  Just ask.  Contact me thru the forum here or at 630-567-2507.

Thanks for looking!

Mike

HI Marty

 

I'll try to post pics of the interior and engine tomorrow.

It has 40,000 miles.

It does not have factory air.

 

Thanks

Mike

For those asking.....

Here's some shots of the interior and engine.

The original glass fuel bowl is off for now.

 

The driver's armrest and rear driver's side armrest will need to be 

repaired/re-stuffed; otherwise the door panels are nice.

The headliner is not tattered & torn but is stained.  Somebody said to spray with Oxi-Solve, but

I'm too chicken!

It has the full set of "BUICK" logo floor mats.  Steering wheel plastic is perfect.

Thanks,

Mike

Thanks for all the good wishes, guys.

After 43 years in the BCA I can say it's  given me

a lot beyond the cost of dues over time.......!

Ultra-Nice and the non existent rarer than rare factory Buick floor mats are a real super bonus.

Forgot to mention that I have spare starter, generator, water pump for peace of mind on

those long road trips!  (Never had to use them!)

 

Also, have two spare tail lamp housings and 2 repairable rear bumper ends.

The ones on the car are somewhat pitted, but solid with no rust out.

 

Thanks for looking

Mike
