Thanks. It was a basket case a few weeks ago. Some one bought it and took it apart then lost interest. Then they wern't sure how to put it back together. It's a town laundal. This verson was only built in 1966. It was the only one with out a rear quarter window. The motor numbers match. It has the police interceptor. The car has 90,000 miles on it. I just need to weld on the lower quarter panel on the passenger side. I haven't put the interior back in yet. but it is perfect except for the carpet. It's missing. The car runs and drives good. It will lay rubber all the way down the street. It has power steering, power breaks, and disc brakes. I have wanted to build one for over 25 years. but never found the right deal. I got it for $1000.00.

love the chrome louvers actually color an all of it!.I'm just not very smart on cars mid 40's and earlier.Late 50's and up i can hold my own .Anything you have is out of my league larry old betty buick is about as good as it will get for me not complaining tho i know a lot of guys would be glad to have a car like it,good enough for me want a decent solid old driver i wouldn't have the nerves or patience to keep up with a show car.Shoot i sold the motomower i just restored because i didn't want to hassle with worrying about covering it up and getting it scratched up lol.easier to sell it and move on.

here is a recent pic paint sucks (i didnt paint it ) masking tape showing you my idea on stripes hope to be red with silver stripes barracuda louvers stripes will be wider at the bottom than shown stripes are made to curve like the front of the louvers if my idea's ever pan out it should look good,actually the color of the motomower I just done is the same paint that was supposed to turn out on the buick not even close!!,,,,,,,KW
