1932 BUICK 56S - SPORTS COUPE - ONLY 23K ORIGINAL MILES - “STRAIGHT 8”, 3 SPEED ON THE FLOOR, RUMBLE SEAT, GOLF BAG DOOR, ETC - COMPLETELY ORIGINAL & RUNNING WITH AN OPTIONAL ZERO-HOUR MOTOR & TRANS! THE PICS OF THE CAR WITHOUT HOOD/FENDERS IS JUST TO SHOW THE ACTUAL OPTIONAL MOTOR/TRANS, NOT THE ACTUAL CAR FOR SALE.

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION, I AM LISTING THIS FANTASTIC, RUNNING CONDITION ANTIQUE, GREAT DEPRESSION ERA BUICK 56S FOR SALE FOR A FAMILY FRIEND OF MINE.

HAVE YOU BEEN LOOKING FOR AN ANTIQUE ERA VEHICLE IN WHICH YOU AND YOUR SON CAN LOVINGLY RESTORE!? ARE YOU THE TYPE OF PERSON WHO ENJOYS VINTAGE PATINA? ARE YOU TIRED OF SHOWING UP TO THE CAR SHOW AND SEEING FIVE OTHER CARS JUST LIKE YOURS!? HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO PURCHASE AN EXTREMELY RARE TIME CAPSULE!

RECENT SPECIFIC HISTORY: THE OWNER OF THIS CAR PURCHASED IT ABOUT 7 YEARS AGO DUE TO IT’S ORIGINALITY. HE ALSO PURCHASED AN EXACT TWIN TO IT (EVEN DOWN TO THE COLOR SCHEME) THAT WAS NOT-QUITE-SO-ORIGINAL. HE DECIDED TO RESTORE THE NOT-SO-ORIGINAL TWIN BECAUSE HE WANTED TO MAKE SOME MODIFICATIONS AND JUST COULDN’T FORCE HIMSELF TO DO THAT TO THE ORIGINAL CONDITION EXAMPLE FOR SALE HERE. AFTER STARTING THIS RESTORATION/MODIFICATION PROJECT AND HAVING THE STRAIGHT 8 ENGINE AND TRANS COMPLETELY REBUILT/REINSTALLED IN THE CAR, HE HAS DECIDED TO GO A DIFFERENT ROUTE….HE IS NOW GOING TO CHOP THE ROOF, TUB THE REAR AND INSTALL AN 800+HP 540 BIG BLOCK. NEEDLESS TO SAY, HE WILL NO LONGER NEED THE BRAND NEW STRAIGHT 8 MOTOR/TRANS AND IS WILLING TO SELL IT TO THE NEW OWNER FOR AN ADDITIONAL $2500. HE WILL ALSO NOT NEED THE BRAND NEW TIRES ON THE RESTORATION PROJECT AND IF OFFERED THE RIGHT PURCHASE PRICE, HE WILL HAVE THEM MOUNTED ON THE CAR FOR SALE HERE AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE, IN PLACE OF THE OLDER TIRES THAT ARE FLAT IN THE PICS (BUT THEY DO HOLD AIR FOR A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME). BASICALLY, THE CAR FOR SALE HERE IS A PRIME CANDIDATE FOR RESTORATION AND NEEDS TO FIND A NEW HOME. THE OWNER HAS TOO MANY TIME-CONSUMING PROJECTS AND HE DOESN’T WANT TO SEE THIS ONE SIT UNTOUCHED ANY LONGER.

SOME OF THIS BUICK’S FEATURES:

- COMPLETELY ORIGINAL

- THIS IS THE 2ND YEAR BUICK PRODUCED THE 85HP 230CID LONG BLOCK STRAIGHT 8 CYLINDER MOTOR THAT WILL RUN (LAST RAN ABOUT 3 YRS AGO, BEFORE COMPLETELY DRAINING FUEL AND WINTERIZING) - OWNER WILL BUY A NEW 6V BATTERY, PUT GAS IN TANK AND GET RUNNING FOR A SERIOUS POTENTIAL BUYER.

- 3 SPEED W/REVERSE SYNCHRONIZED MANUAL TRANS

- 6 POSITION MECHANICAL SHOCKS (YOU HAVE 6 CHOICES TO ADJUST THE RIDE FIRMNESS, RIGHT FROM A STALK NEXT TO YOUR STEERING COLUMN – NOW THAT’S HIGH TECH FOR THE DAY!

-RUMBLE SEAT!

- GOLF DOOR – SIDE ACCESS TO THE RUMBLE SEAT FLOOR AREA/TRUNK

- ORIGINAL REAR WINDOW SHADE/CURTAIN – HEY, WHEN THERE WASN’T AIR CONDITIONING, YOU HAD TO KEEP THE LITTLE LADY COOL SOMEHOW!

- WINDSHIELD CRANKS DOWNWARD AN INCH OR TWO TO ALLOW ADDITIONAL BREEZE IN – THE FASTER YOU GO, THE COOLER YOU ARE….THAT’S YOUR AIR CONDITIONING

- ORIGINAL INTERIOR, GAUGES, LEVERS, UPHOLSTERY, DOOR CARDS, ETC! ABOUT THE ONLY THING NON-ORIGINAL IS THE MINI FAN INSTALLED BEHIND THE STEERING WHEEL – EASILY REMOVED.

- ORIGINAL UPDRAFT CARB, CHOKE CIRCUIT & SEPARATE THROTTLE/IDLE CONTROL

- ORIGINAL PAINT/NO RUST BODY!

- ALL CHROME PIECES ARE THERE AND MANY ARE IN REALLY GOOD SHAPE WITH NO PITTING – HOWEVER, SOME WILL NEED MORE RECONDITIONING THAN OTHERS, OF COURSE.

- LITTLE THINGS, LIKE THE TWO STEPS TO GET INTO THE RUMBLE SEAT ARE STILL THERE!

- TWO-TONED PAINT WITH FAINT SIGNS OF THE ORIGINAL PIN STRIPING!

- ORIGINAL, GIGANTIC HEADLIGHTS

OPTIONAL PURCHASE:

AGAIN, AS THE BUYER OF THIS FINE VEHICLE, YOU WILL HAVE THE $2500 OPTION TO PURCHASE AN ADDITIONAL COMPLETELY REBUILT 1932 STRAIGHT 8 & TRANS THAT THE OWNER HAD PREPARED FOR HIS RESTO-PROJECT, BUT HAS SINCE CHANGED HIS MIND(SEE PICS). THE PACKAGE HAS ZERO-HOURS ON IT AND WILL BE A SIMPLE SWAP. IF YOU HAVE RESTORED A VEHICLE IN THE PAST, YOU KNOW THAT THIS IS AN EXTREMELY FAIR PRICE TO ASK. THE LAST FEW PICS ARE OF THE OWNER’S RESTORATION CAR AND THE ENGINE/TRANS WITHIN THAT HE IS OFFERING TO SELL.

EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED AND/OR OPTIONAL IN THIS SALE TO PROVIDE THE NEXT OWNER WITH A COMPLETELY ORIGINAL AND RARE CAR SHOW PACKAGE! THIS IS NOT A RELATIVELY COMMON FORD MODEL A, CHRYSLER CL OR A CADILLAC SERIES 75. 1930s CLASSICS ARE ALWAYS SPECIAL - AT THE TIME OF PRODUCTION, WE WERE STILL IN THE GREAT DEPRESSION, AND A STYLE LIKE THIS WAS SEEN AS AN EXTRAVAGANCE FEW COULD AFFORD. THERE TRULY IS A TIME-MACHINE FEELING WHEN YOU GRASP THE LARGE, THREE-SPOKE STEERING WHEEL!

THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR SOMEONE TO BECOME THE OWNER OF A VERY RARE PIECE OF HISTORY AT AN ENTRY-LEVEL PRICE! BETTER STILL, EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED AND ATTACHED...THIS IS NOT A BASKET-CASE! WITH A QUICK SEARCH, I HAVE FOUND THESE CARS FOR SALE IN DAILY DRIVER SHAPE TO FULLY RESTORED SHAPE FROM $38K TO OVER $80K.

THE OWNER IS A PROMINENT BUSINESS OWNER, A MAN OF MEANS AND VERY BUSY WITH WORK/PROJECTS. IF YOU KNOW ANTIQUE CARS, YOU KNOW THIS IS A GREAT PRICE AND THAT YOU WILL PLAN TO SPEND MONEY ON RESTORING THIS CAR TO THE CONDITION YOU DEEM CORRECT. THEREFORE, PLEASE RESPECT THE OWNER’S WISHES AND DO NOT CONSIDER OFFERING A LOW-BALL PRICE. THE PRICE IS NEGOTIABLE, HOWEVER, WITHIN REASON.

PLEASE, CASH ONLY. NO CHECKS, NO PAYPAL AND NO PAYMENT PLANS. NOT INTERESTED IN ANY TRADES. IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE FUNDS, PLEASE DON’T CONTACT ME UNTIL YOU DO. AND FINALLY, NO, I WILL NOT SHIP THE VEHICLE TO ZIMBABWE – NO SCAMMERS!

YOU JUST DON’T SEE BUICKS LIKE THIS ANYMORE.
