I have a very nice 1955 Buick Special 46R Riviera that I've decided to sell. I am believed to be the 2nd owner. I have the original paperwork and the original receipt from when it was bought new. It is all original. except for the modern headlight upgrades and an electric fuel pump(the electric pump is only used to prime the fuel system after the car has been in storage-saves cranking time).
This car runs and drives very nice. The 322 Nailhead V8 doesn't smoke or knock and the dynaflow transmission moves this big car down the highway easily(the dynaflow doesn't shift). There are NO issues with the reverse gear(a weak link of a dynaflow). I have taken this car on many long roadtrips and it has never let me down. The Coker radial tires are like new with no uneven wear and lots of tread.
This is a base car so no power windows. A/C. brakes. or steering. Although all of those could be added without problem. The speedometer went haywire in the middle of a long trip and quite working so the actual miles are unknown. The gas gauge goes straight to full so I'm guessing that it's there's a grounded wire somewhere. The gas tank is new. All other gauges work as they should. Floor heater under the front seat works good but the dash blower doesn't come on(it has 2 heaters).
Paint and a poor body repair was done over 25 years ago and needs to be redone. The paint looks good in the pics but is cracked. faded. and stained. I have purchased NEW patch panels to repair the rusted areas(cost $500!). There is NO rust anywhere else in the car that isn't pictured. The floors. trunk. rockers. headlight buckets. and frame are all rust free. The chrome has normal slight pitting and the front bumper has peeling in a couple spots(see pics).
I would consider this to be a very nice 'driver quality' car that is fun to take to car shows and drive on weekends. With the new panels installed and new paint. this would be a show car.
I do not have the car listed locally for sale and will entertain trade offers for running/driving vehicles.  Call or text if you have any questions. 816-986-9078
