    Its a full size car. Window regulators are missing but it looks to be manual windows which would make it a series 62 and its for sure a 53. I have all the 53 chrome/stainless, some of which has been re plated.

    The February 1993 No.45 of American Rodder magazine had a article on how to turn a 1952 Buick into a folding top convertible and it looked pretty simple. It said that the body from the beltline down was the same. They used a 1970 Cadillac as a donor for the top and parts. I would guess that the Cadillac and Buick were similar in using convertible and hardtop from Beltline down.
