This is a 1955 Buick customized in 1999 and now has about 35. 00 miles on it since the build. The actual miles driven is unknown. but the odometer reads 75443. All the chrome and bright work was done during the build. All the running gear was new or rebuilt and all glass but the rear window was replaced. This is not a perfect car and is now showing it's age. There are a couple areas of concern that is shown in 4 of the pictures. The areas would be (1) the driver side seat back. (2) the driver side rocker panel just ahead of the rear tire (3) the passenger side door bottom next to the door seal and (4) the passenger side rear seat window at the very top of the fender. The driver side quarter panel has some bondo. Any replacement panel would probably be in worse condition since fresh parts are not available. However. it is a nice car that shows pretty well and a great Saturday night cruiser. It runs well and very stable on highways. It will get you where you want to go. The engine compartment has a Buick 425 c. i. nailhead engine out of a 1964 Riviera with twin 600 c. f. m. Edlebroke carburetors on an original Buick dual quad intake manifold.
