1956 Buick Special
Zoom icon


HIGHLIGHTS: Not all '50s cars were created equal, and this 1956 Buick is sure to stand out in a crowd of even its contemporaries! Restored and customized into a mild, 'California style' cruiser, this unique beauty will turn heads anywhere you go! With a 322V8, a set of timeless baby moon wheels, and an extremely tasteful color scheme, this Buick Special is ready to hit the streets!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Buick appears extremely straight, and is said to have come from the dry southwest USA, which really aligns with the apparent body condition. One glance down the side of this Buick tells you that no expense was spared in prepping the body for a slick paint job. If you're in the market for a sweet little turn-key lead sled, this is it!

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Much like the body, the paint was done extremely well and shows great. With a deep gloss, and a bright but subtle metallic sparkle, this Buick just oozes with 1950s coolness! Between the beautiful paint and super sharp chrome, you just about need sunglasses to look at this car outside!

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior was refinished in a tasteful but not quite original style, using modern materials that really clean up the look of the car. The interior is intended to match the exterior, and it does so very nicely as only a high-quality restoration can do. If you thought you liked this car from the outside, just wait until you open the door!

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: This is a turn-key vehicle that is ready to go. Driven regularly in fair weather by the current owner, the Buiick V8 springs to life at a touch of the ignition. The engine bay is in equally good condition to the exterior, with just enough chrome accents to keep things exciting without detracting from the unique look of the car. This is a vehicle that is sure to impress!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The look! This car captures the timeless spirit of lead sleds and street cruisers in a way that is hard to describe.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: This car is equipped with '260 air conditioning,' AKA 2 windows down at 60MPH!

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? Just a new home!

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Hot rodders everywhere we imagine! This is a classic California style sled that has a slick look and is bound to seem familiar to anyone that sees it, even if they've never seen it before.
