You couldn’t build it for less.A sharp car. I’m not crazy about the color, but it’s certainly well done.

This is the true statement.  Everyone considering a restoration project with all of it's headaches and twists and turns can justify this purchase.  A bit high perhaps, but with negotiation $20,000 doesn't seem unreasonable for an 8 cylinder early 50s collector car.

Yes, and let’s not disparage the Specials. They’re fine cars in their own right. And solidly Buick even if they don’t share the same body size as the other series, plural.


There is something special about a Special.  I love the smaller body Specials over the larger series. The Special's proportions work better in my mind.
