1957 Super Coupe - Not Mine

Recommended Posts

Looks like a great restoration project!  Price is high by a factor of as much as 2 I think though.  I suppose it will get there eventually.  It's a most excellent color combination of Dover White on the roof with Gulf Green Metallic (spring color) on the bottom - trim code CUU.

 

Ad says "I feel that my price of $15,000 is very realistic for a classic vehicle like this one with the potential that this vehicle has."  I guess the cost of potential has gone through the roof like many other things.

Vehicle Description

You are looking at a 1957 Buick Super Riviera. This is as solid a car as you will find...automatic transmission and the Buick V8! Previous owner just spent $2,000 on complete brake work and $1,000 on new tires! I feel that my price of $15,000 is very realistic for a classic vehicle like this one with the potential that this vehicle has. We offer a 90 day lay away on many of our vehicles. Just break the cost of the vehicle into 4 equal payments 30 days apart, and then you can take possession of the vehicle. If you need long term financing, contact Debbie at Woodside Credit Union. Her number is 855-202-5148. Just tell her you are looking at a vehicle at Classic Cars of SC. I might consider a possible trade, what do you have? What are you looking for? Lets talk!!!

To paraphrase a comment made on one of my cars, there’s nothing wrong with this car that a $100K +  restoration wouldn’t fix.  Start with $25k in chrome work, $20k body and paint, the list goes on.   I think it’s a mid four figure car, just my opinion.  And even at that, it’d be a labor of love to restore, dollars be damned…

I can't believe that place is still in business.  I used to look at their project cars 20 years ago and they had the same schtick.  They likely get these cars for pennies and then put whatever they want on them.  Since it needs everything, I classify this as a $2,000 to $3,000 car.  There is no way "Debbie" is financing it for you.

Ah not sooo ... fast.  Yes the sales copy is an Info Commercial but the car itself .... The chrome on the car is original and in good shape with that just so patina that only old hexavalent blue can make.  The dash is O.K. yet the interior is rags but the car is very straight and solid.  After all it is really a Roadmaster in Super clothing and badging after all is it not with good eZ eye glass and the stainless looks unmolested as well. Good tires and hub caps and Patch welding in floor spots appears pretty minor as well as things go.  From what we can observe from just a few photos, this is at least a

$ 10k car with solid starting point basis with lots of easy to make potential IF you are doing your own work ... imo.

I would by this in a second if it was $2k, and I don't even have anyplace to put it nor the extra $2k.  It's worth much more than that, but I don't think $10k.  As Buick Man points out, the chrome looks really nice original, body looks pretty straight and solid, and the car doesn't look to have been heavily molested.

Remove the wide whites and incorrect hubcaps and it wouldn't look like much of anything, just another neglected old project that needs about everything done to it. 

The hubcaps match those on my '55 Roadmaster, would look great as spares for it!  Love the spinners, very sharp!
