1954 Buick Special in Tucson, AZ


Recommended Posts

Hi, first time Buick owner and thought I would introduce the car.


1954 Special bought from a local pest control company that used cars as advertising around town. I bought it expecting a non running car but the 264 is alive and well. Brakes are good, all lights work so my last task is to get the 3 on the tree to shift properly and it will be enjoyed often.



Some quick pics:


The Thunderbird hubcaps have been replaced with Buick wheel covers for that year. Since the cars were always unlocked when displayed around town a few parts are missing: wiper motor, some dash knobs (can't find those items anywhere) and the front seat will need to be re-upholstered ASAP.


Shifting is almost impossible at the moment, I think I will need to adjust the linkage on the steering column inside the engine bay.

It is mostly complete. I'm not too worried about the missing wiper motor or heater that's disconnected. Neither is really needed in the desert.


I currently have reverse and 1st gear only. So my goal is to free up 2nd and 3rd soon, that arm is completely stuck.
