Gorgeous.  Not mine, but wish it were.  That interior alone would be more than $12,000 to duplicate.

Cool thing about finding these kinds of cars is thinking about adding a couple to the collection for south of $20,000.  Because that 52 Roadmaster likely did not sell, you should be able to dangle $8500 in front of him and shake hands.  This one I think - if on ebay - would get that $12,000.  Sure, not a convertible, but it has working A/C and the windows go down and it's just gorgeous.

That is a nice one for the money.  Not much that looks like that can be bought for 12G.

Just wondering about the absence of spark plug covers in this car.  Is that correct for this year?  If so, what was the last year that nailheads covered up their plugs?

Nothing to do with this particular car, but I always thought that the 64-67 Buicks had exceptionally nice grills and front end treatment.

I think this one has been on CL for a while.  May see some results with time of year and the exposure here.

That does not necessarily mean that the car was sold.

We have seen that with other cars for sale.

One man removed his Craig's List listing when

he offered the car on Ebay, for example.
