"An honest car with a powerful engine in good working condition."

Description

Engine: 6.6 liter Buick Nailhead 401 with original Power-pack. Automatic, electric windows, and other features are available. A previous owner who purchased the car brand new in Hollywood on October 3, 1962. When the car was new, the convertible top was folded down only once. The owner was "kidnapped" at some traffic lights (a stranger jumped into the car and put a knife to her neck and forced her to drive him.) She never dared to lower the roof again after that. The hood fabric was replaced in the early 1980s, the car was repainted in its original color. This was done at a Buick workshop, according to the owner's son (90 years old). Throughout its lifetime, the car was serviced on a regular basis and otherwise competely untouched

The car was parked for about 35 years in a garage in Passadena, California.

In 2018, the current owner purchased it directly from the owner's son, and it was imported to Sweden, where it was registered and inspected/MOT without any issues. The current owner has carried out the following work: “White walls” tires have been added to the mix. New brake shoes, all wheel cylinders, brake hoses, and fluid, master cylinder replaced (in USA) Cab cylinders that have been restored Oils were changed, and the exhaust system was partially replaced. The cardan's support bearing has been replaced. Except for the fuel tank gauges (which work occasionally) and the radio, everything works.."
