So I think everyone knows this car.  There's a thread of mine in me and my buick.  I believe there's also a thread from the previous owner. The car starts easy, runs well, and drives like a cloud. A rust-free survivor with just over 13k miles on the clock and it shows. Power steering, power brakes, and power antenna all function well. Factory tinted glass keeps the interior easy on your eyes. Selectronic radio (auto tuning with foot button) stopped working but the car includes 2 parts radios. Gas gauge also stopped, I suspect bad ground.  The interior is gorgeous, there are a couple holes in the carpet and one seam in the seat that need some help. The trunk has the original liner and original spare tire. The windows roll up and down smooth and the doors shut like new. A rear speaker was installed with a period correct cover, speaker switch should be installed for the authentic look (I have a bezel but no switch). She has brand new tires (42 miles on them), all new engine gaskets including head gasket, transmission was rebuilt 10+ years ago and new mounts just done this year. Water pump and fuel pump are freshly rebuilt. New battery, new points, plugs, wires, coil, cap, and condenser. Also have a pertronix unit for the car if you prefer. I bought the car in Georgia (no titles) and have gone through the NC titling process. Titles are delayed due to COVID, but I have the registration and owners card in my name.  Title will come with when it arrives.  Car will idle for 30 minutes plus but then heats up after 15-20 miles of driving and will overheat if you don't stop. Reverse can be finicky (have to slide the shifter in and out of gear a few times).  Heater core is out for replacement (comes with 3) and it's missing the driver side view mirror. Car comes with my building of parts including set of older white wall bias ply tires (for archival showing), 3 extra rims, dog dish caps with trim rings, 2 more 322s, dynaflow transmission, extra radiator, extra carburetor, spare power steering box with column and pump, extra spark plug covers, extra valve covers, extra water pump, 4 extra fuel pumps, and more.  I can't find much to value it on, not even hagerty. Its 66 years old and has some bumps and bruises and still needs some love to make a driver out of it. I figure I best start high, easier to go down than up.  $15k obo. Shocked? Make me an offer....

I am a big fan of this car. If only this were a few months ago, before I added a car to my garage. I hope you find it a good home.

Zero interest so far...  drove it again.  Reverse still doing good.  If you want specific photos or have specific questions please ask.  Remember I'm open to offers. 15k just seemed like a number to throw out there.

Matt,

    Kudos to you for going the distance to honestly represent this car for sale.  👍

I tried but none of us are perfect and we all miss things but the last item I sold on here for the individual felt it was misrepresented I offered them a full refund return shipping or to ship them replacement pieces. Life's too short to make enemies

In all honesty, while I’m sure Matt wants to  honestly represent the car, IMO he may not have really done the car itself justice. The interior of this car really has to be seen in person to be appreciated. Maybe some of these, taken a few days before he picked it up , will help show that.

It looks amazingly dry under there!  Nothing I own looks as leak free as that does...wow!

13,658 miles. Not much chance to leak.

You'd be surprised after extensive work to major components the leaks that can and do develop.  I speak from experience....much to my chargrin.

Have an offer from Washington State but jeez.  Puts a lot of work on me packing parts up for them to pickup the whole mess.  I had really hoped someone on this forum would've thrown out an offer.  I'll let you know how it goes.

Is it a fair offer?  Is it enough beyond your minimum to make it worth screwing with all the parts?

Now that you have it running correctly, don't give it away to the first offer you get.

 

It looks good in your garage or at your work.

Sold. Was a pain through negotiations. When all is tallied I didn't break even, but we reached a deal and I am out of the buick business. The car is being packed up this week (filled with boxes of smalls) and large items like  engines/transmission will be sent on freight pallets separately.  What a TON of work I've made for myself lol. The rear axle I sold to @MrEarl and the transmission I sold to @Pete Phillips will be the only things left in my storage.  Time to focus on the house and retirement savings.  If I find a cheap, drivable old car I might take the bait but not going to focus on that.
