1950 Buick Special Custom description
A seriously sinister appearance that's backed up by a modern fuel-injected V8. That's what people notice about this 1950 Buick Special Series 40. Of course, you don't have to tell them this is also a comfortable coupe with an air ride suspension, overdrive transmission, and even air conditioning.
This coupe just gets cooler the longer you look at it. For example, you'd expect the matte black paint to be lackluster, but this one has a subtle shine that really highlights the classic curves in the sheetmetal. So the first impression is as aggressively elegant as a heavyweight boxer in a finely tailored suit. And while it's more mean than sophisticated, we all love the portholes in the hood, whitewall tires, and the artful grille and bumper integrated combination that was exclusive to this year. Plus, there are custom touches like the upper grille, iron cross side mirrors, frenched lights, and shaved door handles. And the air ride suspension means you get to create the perfect custom look as you drop this one to the ground everywhere it's parked.
The custom and vintage mixture of the outside is continued on the inside. The red and white on the seats, doors, carpeting, and fully finished trunk have a classic appearance, but they have a fresh and bold feeling that lets you know there was plenty invested here. And the tops of the doors have been smoothed over for a terrific custom look. Plus, with modern R134a air conditioning, you have the ability to stay cool even during the warmest summer breeze. And this one is truly built for cruising. The driver gets a Grant sports steering wheel with a black and chrome presentation that coordinates with the dash. Plus, you have the comfort of a tilt wheel and power steering. Beyond that is a full set of Classic Instruments gauges that all hint at something special under the hood even before you twist the key and hear this classic street machine roar.
While this looks like an old-school custom on the outside, it's pure modern joy under the hood. This one proudly displays the 5.7-liter LS1 V8 borrowed from a C5 Corvette. And while this fuel-injected powerhouse is a great investment, they went further with a Comp Cam, performance air kit, and newer aluminum radiator to add power and reliability. Don't forget to check out the undercarriage photos, too. Not only can you see the full Air Ride Technologies kit, but also you'll spot great upgrades like the Mustang II-style tubular front suspension, thick front sway bar, and a four-link rear. Add in the 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive and front disc brakes, and soon you realize this custom coupe is easy to take near or far.
Complete with build receipts and maintenance records, this Buick Special is truly something special. And it's amazing such a standout custom build is also so affordable. So don't miss this one, call today!
