So, you're a connoisseur of vintage metal, and now that you've owned tens, maybe even hundreds of classic 50s cars, you want to go all out and find the best of the best. Of course, we ALL know it just doesn't get any better than an Eisenhower-era convertible; and with that in mind, there are a few top-of-the-line cruisers that might qualify as your 'ultimate'. Want the ultimate classic to park at shows or parade down Main Street? This Buick special is the professional restored masterpiece you've been looking for! This 1955 Buick Special Convertible is a beautifully restored, stock example of a luxury 50s cruiser. 1955 was a monumental year for Buick, with the General Motors Division sitting in third place with its sales of nearly three-quarters of a million cars. The '55 Buicks received a major facelift from the previous year's models. The front end was updated to a new oval shaped cut out with textured grille panel and solid chrome horizontal emblem bar across the middle. The front quarter also were redesigned giving the cars a more futuristic look and the iconic venti-ports shifted from an oval shape to circles. At the tail, the rear quarters also got a new, almost wing-like, appearance along with a new tower taillight housing. This particular Buick Special comes to us from a longtime collector who owned the car for the past 25+ years. Under the hood on this '55 Buick Convertible is a 264 Cubic Inch Nailhead V8 paired with a single 2-barrel carburetor that pushed our 188 horsepower in its day. The 264 Nailhead V8 is hooked up to a Dynaflow Automatic Transmission that just about anybody can drive. The chrome and brightwork around the exterior of this '55 Special is in spectacular, ready for the local car show, condition. Riding on wide whitewall radial tires with original 40 spoke wire wheels, this 1955 Convertible has a great look and even better ride. The exterior on this Buick Special has been beautifully refinished in Tapioca yellow and white color scheme. The interior on this '55 Buick is superb! The front and rear bench seats have been reupholstered in beautiful white leather. The matching door panels, steering wheel, and dash are in wonderful shape as well. The dash is equipped with a 140 MPH speedometer, amp gauge, oil pressure gauge, and fuel gauge, as well as an AM/FM converted radio. Ccustom body jack and tools complete the detailed trunk which is finished off with a matching wire spoke spare wheel. * 25+ year prior ownership * Gasoline Alley restoration * 264 Nailhead V8 engine * Dynaflow automatic transmission * Power assist steering * All stainless nuts & washers * All new brake & fuel lines * Tapioca Yellow & White exterior * Custom white leather interior * Custom black cloth convertible top * Custom Dolphin gauges with 140 speedo * All new glass throughout * Molded continental kit with wire wheel * Polished stainless-steel trim * Original 40 spoke wire wheels * 5 wide white wall tires * Custom leather parade boot * Tear drop & peak-a- boo mirrors * AM/FM stereo with power antenna * LED taillights with cyclope brake light * Runs and drives great always a cruiser Whether you're looking to add to your existing GM collection or you're buying your very first classic car, this 1955 Buick Special Convertible would make an excellent choice.
