Vehicle Original VIN : 4C4004315

Our Chicago showroom is very excited to present this very special 1956 Buick Special. Known as "Nailed" this car was a true barn find and we have the pictures to prove it. The vehicle was discovered by accident when the original owner was searching to have her barn demolished. This was discovered by accident by the current owner who really saw this as a diamond in the rough. By looking at the photos of when the car was discovered I'm sure nobody realized what this awesome car was about to become. This '56 is positively mesmerizing to look at from any angle but what is really fascinating is its understated beauty that transforms into an over-the-top experience as you get close to the car.
Before we get into what was done on the outside lets take a moment to discuss what was done under the hood. Rad Rides by Troy is known for some of the highest quality builds and "Nailed" is no exception. Under the hood you will see a 401 Nailhead that again looks simple enough from afar but as you get close you will notice this isn't your normal Nailhead. The firing order was changed from the standard 12784563 to 15634278 to provide a more efficient and reliable set up. This twin turbo (yes you are reading that right) 6-stage dry sump lubricated V8 has been transformed from something ordinary to something truly unique and exotic. At over 800 horsepower this rolling work of art is also a blast to drive and sounds great as it breathes through the custom dual exhaust coming out of the rear bumper. This car features an Art Morrison Chassis, Corvette C6 suspension with Ride Tech coil overs supporting the custom manufactured wheels surrounded by Michelin Pilot SuperSport whitewall tires. The Bowler 4L80E transmission shifts precisely on point making this car as comfortable to drive as you could ever imagine.
The exterior of this car is finished in Reventon Metallic carefully sprayed using SATA sprayers and then cleared. The paint reflects not only gray and silver but also violet and gold and looks stunning in contrast with the brushed nickel and black nickel finish of the chrome and side trim. A hand-painted pinstripe in copper finishes off the exterior and goes along with the copper porthole inserts and completes the set of unique metals on this sinister Buick.
Moving onto the interior you will again be amazed that no stone was left unturned. To start the dash is kept rather stock looking and thanks to a very nice and neat design from Buick not much was changed in the shape of the gauges but they were all reverse painted now showing 160 MPH....why not? All of the gauges are clear glass and have a gray diamond background. The original styled Sonomatic radio and all knobs and handles are finished in the same black nickel finish as the interior trim. The seats are distressed muted black leather again courtesy of Rad Rides by Troy. The spoked leather wrapped steering wheel with horn ring ads to the vintage styling of the interior and was hand stitched in copper thread. From any angle this car is jaw dropping and has already received an overwhelming amount of attention in our showroom. [ omitted ]. [ omitted ].
