1953 Buick Other
Ibought this car from a huge car collector and he had it stored away for 20 years or more in a barn.. The VIN# is 47224714.It is one of the most solid53 Buick 2 door hardtopsout there and has a good straight body other then a little dent above the rear fender on the drivers side above the tire and little dent on passenger front fender by the light, but I would not touch them. Everyone loves the way this car aged and for 66 years old, it is amazing!It's still ingreat shape and runs great.
It still has the Straight 8 in it with a automatic transmission. I put a new 6 volt battery in it and a electric fuel pump on it and dropped the tank and found a few holes so I just ran a jug under the hood to get it going and it works fine. I drove it down the highway--the brakes still work and the tranny shifts fine and all the lights, blinkers, horn wipers,cigarette lighter and etcstill works.The odometer only shows 59,573 and considering the seats, door panels and steering wheel are so clean (where usually there would be worn out), I think the miles are correct because it was stored so long. The gauges are nice and the original floor mat is still in it.The originalseats would look fine if they could be sewn back where they split. Original headliner still intact. The door panels look good and with some simple green and a brush they would look even better. The rockers are extremely clean and solid.The floors are great only 1 patch on the rear driver side everything else looks good. Needs a wind shield and the side glass, the rear is good,1 of the vent windows and small rear window is good as well. Some kids broke them out years back. Original hubcaps minus 1 is on it and the owner put new tires on it when he parked it--they areolder but look good. Needs a new gas tank.
I drive it around my place and it's a good car. If someone would just do glass and replace the old hoses and belts and do the basic tune up, tires tank etc this would make a awesome driver. Its a smooth running car and looks great with the original patina and being a hardtop. now just needs some big whitewalls. This would be a easy little quick project since its in such good shape and is already going down the road. CLEAN TEXAS TITLE
