My 53 Buick Special

Recommended Posts

My name is Tony, retired Marine after 22 years and new owner of a beautiful 53 Buick Special. I'm not a car guru or overly mechanically inclined so hopefully everyone is ready for an obnoxious amount of questions..lol

Welcome Tony. Very nice car. As for not being overly mechanically inclined, not to worry, you'll get there with the abundance of expertise and help you're going to find here.

Welcome and a nice looking car!  And thank you for your service.  

Autozone will have a few thing but not much.   Good for brakes, ignition, maybe filters.  For the good stuff use Bob's Automobilia and CARS, or ask here...

It looks like seat covers were put on way back then. You might have a well preserved original upholstery under them. Love that dark green they used in that era. I’ve got a buddy that works at NAPA and I’m amazed at how much they have available for my old cars. Try them. I love 53s, have a Super 2dr.
