I’ve decided to sell the Buick. I’ve enjoyed it for the past few years, but honestly I just don’t have the time, knowledge, or money to do this car justice. I have my ’60 Impala flat-top restoration project to finish, which is what I’ll do with the funds I get from selling the Buick.
The starter issue that was plaguing me is “fixed” finally… I ended up re-building a starter from parts of the original and the new re-manufactured one. Never did figure out what the problem was, but.. it works now. Of course the starter does have a tendency to grind on a semi regular basis, just like it had been since day one. I guess I’ll leave this one for the next guy to figure out!
I have a brand new exhaust system that the next owner can install. Also have the bottom pan and accumulator seals for the tranny that need to go in. I just don’t have the time or desire to do these things myself.
Note: Some photos on this blog show the seat being equipped with factory 6-way power setup. This was non-functional (broken transmission). It has been replaced with manual seat tracks and appropriate aluminum trim. The power setup will not be included with the sale of the car. I’m saving it in hopes of finding repair parts, then using it in the restoration of my ’60 Impala Convertible (someday).
The Buick is currently listed for sale on eBay.
