Description for Buick Other 1955

This is a 1955 Buick customized in 1999 and now has about 35,000 miles on it since then. The actual miles driven is unknown, but the odometer reads 75442. All the chrome and bright work was done during the build. All the running gear was new or rebuilt and all glass except the rear window was new. This is not a perfect car and is now showing it's age. There are a couple areas of concern that is shown in 3 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 area on passenger side rear quarter next to the rear side window and (4) the passenger side door bottom. Also, 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. Itwillget you where you want to go.
