Seller's notes: "Cosmetically, it is a beauty from 4 inches up on the body. Above 4 inches from the bottom, it is outstanding. Below, it will need some work due to storage. There are holes and rust as shown. The good news is that it was rust proofed when new and parts of the car are outstanding. The underbody does have some rust, but it is also fairly solid. There are holes in the front nose pan under the battery.Mechanically, the car sat for too long and the engine is stuck. These can many times be freed up with automatic transmission fluid down the cylinder. We did not try anything. Also, the automatic transmission linkage was disconnected years ago. We are unsure why but the rods are there. It probably will also need brakes and fuel/ brake lines. When we connected a battery up, everything but the headlights worked. The radio, heater, wipers, directionals, hazards, dash lights, and the interior light.This should be considered a project. Please look carefully at all the photos before bidding."

Description

You are looking at a Barn Find Vintage 1973 Buick Opel GT Survivor. 39. 92 original mile project. This barn find has had what we believe to be two owners and has been fairly well taken care of.

Please scroll down and enjoy the 250+ photos. If you cannot view all the photos. please click here.  

This vehicle was purchased by the 2nd owner out of an estate. The first owner bought it new. and was picked up from the address on the original title. While the interior is outstanding and the body looks nice. it is a project and needs to be reconditioned.

Cosmetically. it is a beauty from 4 inches up on the body. Above 4 inches from the bottom. it is outstanding. Below. it will need some work due to storage. There are holes and rust as shown. The good news is that it was rust proofed when new and parts of the car are outstanding.

The underbody does have some rust. but it is also fairly solid. There are holes in the front nose pan under the battery. The passenger's door is fairly rusty with holes at the very bottom in the middle as shown. The rest of the door is surprisingly solid. Parts of the car were repainted years ago. The undercoating shown is from Ziebart rustproofing when the car was new.

Mechanically. the car sat for too long and the engine is stuck. These can many times be freed up with automatic transmission fluid down the cylinder. We did not try anything. Also. the automatic transmission linkage was disconnected years ago. We are unsure why but the rods are there. It probably will also need brakes and fuel/ brake lines.  

The good news is when we connected a battery up. everything but the headlights worked. The horn. radio. heater. wipers. directionals. hazards. dash lights. and even the interior light. The keys and locks are all present as well.

As nice as it looks. this should be considered a project and needs to be reconditioned. Please look carefully at all the photos to gauge condition before bidding.

Please call our store at (414) 727-0600 for additional information on this vehicle. Best of all. we are selling this beauty with NO RESERVE. but do reserve the right to end the auction early as it is for sale locally. Good luck in the auction.
