HOLY.. that is cool!! Congrats!!
Holy freakin crap!!!!!
Awesome find. I saw the '49 in your photo at a show here in Australia a coupe of years ago and fell in love with it. Cracking car! Loved it so much I ended up inmporting a '49 Caddy Club Coupe,...unfortunately it will be a few years before it looks as good as the one in the picture
pfft, ive seen better..........HAH just kidding, that buick is beee you tee full!!
Nice find, it's screaming mild custom!
Can't go wrong with a Buick!
I see no one has mentioned the critical event in this saga. Namely, your son spotted the car. Bravo, for raising your kid in the state of mind to be on the lookout for these jewels 24/7. When my kid was growing up he could name any car on the road and most times he knew all of the options available on any particular model.
Looks solid! Great score
I love survivors!
I'd wash it and get it roadworthy and other than that wouldn't touch a thing on it.
Looks custom just the way it is, gonna make a sweet ride
That looks like a very solid old car. Quality built too. You can keep that one for life.
Take good care of her.
Very nice score! Congrats!
Very nice score ! Steering wheel looks great too. You'll have fun with this one !!
"When better cars are built, Buick will build them."
Buick seem to have the knack of producing a few great classics.
That, my friend, is one of the best.
Looking forward to seeing it all clean and shiny ..
Man that's a great looking car. Nice to see them still turn up from time to time.
Awesome car. Great job by the kid too.
That's going to be a nice ride!
Now there's a find!
Kudos to you for a great score!
Bigger kudos to your son for having the wherewithal to recognize it and tell you!!! Go buy that boy an ice cream sundae....or just give him the 55! haha
Love that car, especially the steering wheel. Go with veeeery simple mods an it will look even more killer. Just a little lowering, skirts and you are done.
very very Kool find, you bloody americans are lucky buggers.... I took me 12 months to find mine, and it needs a full build, congrats.
Beautiful and black already. Make sure ot stops then goes. Make a nice cruiser! Jack
That's the right one to have. It's crying for some sympathetic kustom touches, but I can't wait to see it all washed up and polished. Good for you and for your son, good lookin out.
3-Speed AND a fastback -- perfect! -- nice score
sweet!! looks like it just needs a good bath and a going over before it is road ready
Damn, that thing is sweet! I've always loved that body style. With all my heart, let me say, You Suck! :-D
