Fix the seat, install a new windshield and drive it.  I happen to agree with the seller $14990 is a price that should be firm anything less and he's giving it away.  It's a pretty car!

Still boils down to how many guys are looking for a 59 Buick 4 door sedan with 15000 in their pocket.  Lots of options for lots of cars at 15000. Maybe not a 1959 Buick but probably a very limited number of guys looking for a car just like this.    Probably the reason it's not selling most. It's in nice shape but with 15000 in my pocket I would look at all options and probably buy a different car. There has been alot of great survivor type cars and i think a 63 Caddy coupe that looked really nice for 17? yesterday.  Personally not crazy about the tutone either but that's a personal preference thing.

Not necessarily the case here but when I see tutones like that on any old car my first thought is the lower body has had some rust repair done. Easier for some folks to repaint in a contrasting color than blend the patched areas in so they're not as noticeable.

If this is a factory paint scheme, it's fine and I think attractive.  The darker lower body tends to make the car look longer and lower - later in the 60's several cars used blacked out rockers for this effect.

Nice car, yes that pesky B-pillar does count against it

I don't think it is/was, but I admit that I know little about these cars. This kind of two tone was definitely going out of style at GM by 1960 (...aside from pickup trucks and the big side scallop on Corvettes.) I googled and didn't see any two tone 60 Buicks like this, but I could be wrong. I did see some two tone schemes with the lower area above the rockers in a different color, though. I do have a soft spot 59 and 60 Buicks, and this one looks clean. I'd prefer all white on this one, but that's just my opinion.

 

Edit: OK, I've seen some with different color tops, but not the rear deck. Did see one of the "flat top" roofed cars with a roof/rear deck one color, so I don't know. Also, those rocker area colors I mentioned may actually be a wide brushed trim piece. kind of in the vein of the early sixties Olds Starfires. There was a forum member named "60 Flattop"...I bet he'd know. 😄
