RARE PERFECT CONDITION 1941 Buick Super 50 Phaeton 4 door Convertible FOR SALE
http://www.flemingsultimategarage.com/1941-buick-super-50-phaeton-4-door-co nvertible-c-1946.htm 1941 Buick Super 50 Phaeton convertible sedan, the first opportunity in 70 years to own the #1 judged Buick in the world! It's believed to be the first Phaeton built as well as 1 of only 467 U.S cars built that year, less than 1% of the 377,428 cars Buick produced in '41! 5 year, no expense spared, photo chronicled with 1600 photos, 1000's of receipts totaling a documented $220,000! Restoration was done by the #1 Buick authority in the world Bill Anderson and the entire process is authenticated by noted Buick historian Terry Dunham. Judged one time, scoring a 394 points out of a possible score of 400 (99%) by known authorities Buick club of America and the AACA (Antique Automobile Club of America). This Buick also garnered both Gold and Senior AACA awards, almost unheard of for any automobile. Talk about show detailed driveline components, painted grey for the first production cars ( later they became red) Freshly rebuilt 248cid "fireball" Dynaflash inline 8 cylinder with twin down draft carburetors, rebuilt super smooth 3 speed manual transmission, freshly rebuilt and detailed rear differential. Original color coded wiring, still retaining the Generator equipped electrical system, its engine compartment detailing is world class. Mirror finished in its correct Carlsbad black paint, show waxed and detailed, great looking red (pre distressed) leather interior with seating for 6.

Color matched correct 16" wheels w/ pinstripes, wide whitewall tires and polished center caps. All the descriptions of the most spectacular restoration in the world are still second to how this car feels and the smiles it evokes when she rolls down the road. Great acceleration, super tight chassis, rattle and squeak, its grace is recognized by every passerby with a thumbs up. This is really the way to buy a collector car, the restoration funded by someone else and then own it for just about half price. These are considered the next "Duesenberg "in the terms of cars to appreciate quickly, it was also the last 4 door convertible built by GM. Also keep in mind that World War II was the next year and vehicle production virtually ceased, again just another notch of rarity. Get yourself not only a great investment, but a great car to show or just drive. http://www.flemingsultimategarage.com/ 301.816.1000

134023 / 1970 Buick GSX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cweedua In 1970 Buick introduced the GSX as their answer to Pontiac's GTO Judge and Chevrolet's Chevelle SS454. Modestly rated at 360hp and 510 ft./lb. of torque, the GSX Stage 1 was described as a more luxurious HEMI 'Cuda because of its lighter weight and amazing power. In 2002, this particular example won a Senior Award from the Buick Club of America and the 'A' Body of The Year award at the Buick Nationals. In 2010 it racked up Concours Gold awards at both the Buick Performance Group Nationals and GS Nationals. Literally every nut and bolt on this GSX Stage 1 has been replaced to factory standards and showroom shine to ensure that it gets the most points possible from any discerning judge. Every weld and gap is perfect making for excellent panel fit and functionality giving this Buick a menacing, yet luxurious appearance. Chrome bumpers, door handles and window trim add an element of class and luxury. The combination of black, white and chrome is complemented by small splashes of color like the rear GSX decals and red pin stripping around the GSX side stripe. Red, white and blue Buick tri-shield center caps are bolted to GSX specific chrome trimmed 15 inch Rallye wheels. Those stylish Rallye wheels are wrapped in reproduction Super Wide Oval tires as if the car had just left the factory. Buick's mighty 455 big block V8 was one of the first motors to utilize thin wall casting and as a result is lighter than a comparable Chevrolet 454. Take one look under the hood at the numbers matching 455 and you'll see why this GSX is a gold winning car. Everything from the battery to the decals has been restored to showroom quality and nothing less than best of show. This particular GSX was up fitted from the factory with the Stage 1 performance package which added a hotter cam, bigger valves, low restriction Exhaust and revised jets in the Rochester Quadra-Jet carburetor. The result is an unpublished rating of 425hp and a ride that you'll never forget. This GSX also features Buick's Rallye Ride Control Package which includes a rear stabilizer bar, firmer front and rear shocks, rear firm ride springs and rear lower control arm assemblies. Connecting that massive power with this enhanced driving system is a factory option, numbers matching close-ratio 4-speed transmission. Equipped in only 188 Buick GSX's for 1970, that transmission sends the torque to the ground via 3.64 gears in a numbers matching high performance Buick Posi-Traction rear axle. At the front corners, factory power assisted discs and at the rear corners, factory power assisted drums bring everything to a stop. The guys at Then and Now topped off the restoration with a new fuel tank, new fuel lines, new brake lines, new body mounts and a fresh GM black undercoating. This sale includes documentation from the GSX Historic Society showing the car to be GSX number 622 of 678 produced for 1970. Also included are Concours gold plaques from the GS Nationals and Buick Performance Group Nationals as well as the Buick Club of America gold medal, affixed to the grille of the car, signifying senior award status. The car features a numbers matching 455 V8, a numbers matching 4 speed close ratio transmission and a numbers matching 3.64 high performance rear end. It is one of 178 Apollo White cars produced and one of 188 cars equipped with the manual transmission. Even after 40 years the interior of the GSX still feels luxurious and comfortable. The gauge cluster consists of a clock and brightwork set against wood grain texture. The seats and door panels feature upgraded vinyl, adding to the fresh feeling created by the nicer GSX dash. This gorgeous GSX has the hardware to satisfy your wants and the class to fulfill your needs. It has enough power under its hood, luxury behind its doors and trophies under its belt to make any car guy happy. The sale includes concours gold plaques from the GS Nationals and Buick Performance Group Nationals and documentation from the GSX Historic Society. Call today for a chance to own this award winning car!





Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Harry Fisher In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice" car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well... above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the baddest hot-rods around.
