Customs Bought a 1960 Buick LeSabre!

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by 59IMPALER, Feb 14, 2018.

  1. I actually bought it a year ago. It's a super solid and straight Nevada car, with an old, cheap repaint in original colors of Beige and brown. Not my favorite combo, but the patina is so sweet that I really don't want to repaint it. With original plans to restore it back to stock, I didn't share it on here earlier because Stock doesn't fit the H.A.M.B vibe. Now I want to lower it, and put Supremes and thin WWs on it. Was hoping that a Photoshop Guru could put those wheels and tires on it, so I can see if Supremes and Beige get along, or if it will be like putting lipstick on a pig. ( Mr. Guru, leave the front at that height, but lower the back an inch. It's a static drop, and it's gotta be driveable. THANKS!) DSC04262.JPG DSC04268.JPG DSC04263.JPG IMAG1212.jpg

    Good plan. My cousin scored the same, a 2dr sedan, a few years ago. 14K mi, original down to the tires and clear plastic seat covers. Well preserved time capsule. Neat cars that are rarely seen these days. Congrats, and keep us updated.

  11. Thanks, Jimmy!
    Had the Torque Ball and pinion bearing replaced, and changed the gear lube. We're good to go.
