Thread: Patina

  1. #1

    Patina

    Came across this a few weeks ago and decided I had to own it. 23K original miles (records back from -55 when a lady bought it in PA) and the interior is all original except for the front seat and carpet. No, all those weird dashboard ornaments are not mine !! Patina is amazing and while I will build a new engine and drive line, the body will be left exactly as is. Cant beat what it took mother nature to create over 66 years.......

    Surface rust only. The floor, trunk and frame are all solid

    55 Buick Century. This was their 'hot rod'. Smaller body (Special and Century) with the bigger engine they offered. 322cu Nail head

    Very cool to find one with such low original miles! The patina looks great and I hope you enjoy it!

    The only thing I would do is air suspension and that's it.

    I didn’t mention that but absolutely agree. I have a bagged 59 Caddy and also doing a 59 Buick flat top this winter. I really like what these cars look like when on the ground

    You got the 4 port holes, indicating the bigger engine. Smaller engine Buick's got 3.
