1952 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon 79R Woodie
RARE RARE RARE 1 of 359 Ever Built
Straight 8 engine with DynoFlow Automatic Transmission
Runs and Drives Great! Daily Driver Condition!
Re-listing due to unresponsive buyer - Serious bidders only please!
This is a beautiful car, fun to drive and gets a lot of attention.
Mechanically SOLID, Body is SOLID, Wood needs some help.
Steers smoothly, shifts smoothly, brakes great, it simply glides down the road.
Here are some youtube videos of it driving and walk around (add " in front of each link)
Lights work, All Gauges work, even the clock works! Even the fan under the seat works. Radio is out of the car, I was able to get the lights to turn on but it only picks up static. Newly upholstered seats, windshield is good, side windows have small cracks but they are not missing any pieces so any glass guy can remake them.
Original 6 volt system, wiring looks good, even under the dash is the way it should be. No signs of anyone hacking/ splicing the wiring up. Has a new battery and it does not drain the battery, fires up on the first try even after its been sitting a while. The Victory Maroon paint is not the original but cleans up nice. This isnt a trailer queen but definitely car show worthy. No rust issues, the only signs of possible rust are a few bubbles under the paint on the driver side rocker panel. Everything underneath is solid. It does have surfuce rust on the frame but can easily be cleaned up. Wheel wells, inside of the quarter panels and fenders are clean. I cant see any signs of patches, dents or filler. Paint has a few chips and blemishes (nothing serious) but in my opinion its better to have a car you can drive and enjoy instead of having to keep it locked up. The wood does need help, unfortunately it wasnt properly sealed and so a good portion of it rotted, it still has strength but is cracked and black in some spots. I had someone test a piece of veneer applied to see how it would look as an option to fix the wood, another option could be filling the cracks and airbrushing some grain effect, but now that ive decided to sell it, ill leave it up to the new owner to decide what path to take on the wood. I have tons small parts to go with it. I have the original battery warranty with the original buyer's information. I have a lot more pictures on photobucket of the underbody, interior, radio, extra parts 123 pictures to be exact. (Add " in front of the link)
