1956 Buick Special customized 2dr hardtopBeautifully customized Buick with all modern upgrades. A one of a kind that was built by a master craftsman. No short cuts. Virtually every thing is new and improved. This car has won many awards.The body is a 1956 Buick special with nearly every panel modified. Lets start with the front . The front fenders have had the park lights frenched into them and the bottom section extended, the headlights are original. The grill and the surround were completely custom made. The bumper has had the bolt holes filled in and the dagmars removed then modified to fit the custom grill surround. The hood has had the center emblem section filled in and smoothed with all new metal. The doors are as original. The rear fenders have been extended at the taillights about 4 inches to accept the 56 Packard taillight lenses. The sides and wheel opening are as original. The trunk has had a center scoop added for the addition of the license plate holder and light. The top has had a scoop added for the addition of a 3rd brake light. This is all hand formed metal. The rear bumper has had the bolt holes filled and smoothed. All this took hundreds of hours. There is no rust anywhere. All stainless was professionally repaired and polished. All chrome was redone. The body is finished in a high quality base coat clear coat paint and then wet sanded and polished to perfection.The frame started as the original Buick. It was partly boxed then the front suspension was cut off and a 1978 Camaro front clip was added. This provides for disc brakes and much better handling and ride.The frame was also smoothed where the new suspension was added and the whole frame was sealed and painted gloss black.. All the suspension is new including coil springs ball joints etc. The brakes are of course all new rotors, calipers, bearings, and brake lines . All the brake lines are stainless steel front to back. The rear suspension is coil springs from 1985 buick estate wagon with air shocks. The floors were replaced with all new metal with the front raised about 1 inch to accommodate the new running gear. Wheels are 8 inches wide in back and 6 inches in the front with radial tires.The spinner hub caps are new. Under the hood the firewall has been smoothed and the inner fenders modified for the new suspension. Notice the custom air shroud and air cleaner and how every thing is painted to match the exterior. The engine and transmission is Cadillac. The engine is a 500 cu that stock put out 297 h.p. and over 800 pounds of torque. It was completely rebuilt with all new internals and balanced . The intake was replaced with an Edelbrock highrise and carb.The distributor is a new high performance h.e.i. The starter , alternator, power steering etc are of course all new.The radiator is a recored Buick that works great.New chrome power brake booster. Air conditioning and heat are new Southern air. The transmission is a turbo 400 that was rebuilt with all new high performance parts and a shift kit added. The exhaust is Stock Cadillac manifolds with aluminized pipe mufflers. The rear end is from a 1985 Buick estate wagon that has 233 gears. All new seals and bearings, brakes etc.. The wiring is of course all new from Painless wiring.The beautiful interior is all leather and ultra suede. The seats are from Cadillac the front is a 60-40 split 6 way power seat. The rear was modified for exact fit. The side panels and headliner are ultra suede and match the seats. The package tray is leather as well and has the Buick logo in the center. The carpet is the best available. The interior work cost over $10,000.00 . Front windows are now power.The beautiful Buick dash is original with original gauges that work fine.The custom steering wheel is leather and sits on a tilt column. Notice the custom console. The new Southern air conditioning and heat work great. The stereo is an am/fm cd with 4 speakers. The glass is near perfect with the excellent chrome. It does have a new windshield. The doors open and shut as they should. All the weather strips are new.Overall this is a car that was built to show and drive. It has won awards at almost every show it has been to. The winning bidder will also. It was finished 7 years ago and has been driven 14,900 miles. It does have a few small chips in paint from driving. The car needs nothing. It runs and drives like a new car. It took hundreds of hours to build this one of a kind show car. It would cost over a $100,000.00 to build this car. This is your chance to buy it for a fraction of the cost. I do have many more pictures.We are located 60 miles from the Boise Idaho airport. Personal inspections are welcome by appointment only.
