Very nice car. Can you send us some more pics?
Here ya go.
Nice tires. :TU: :beer
Did that car come from Ohio?
That is a sweet car, I like the bellflower tips on it. What engine is in it?
That is a sweet looking ride! :TU: I bet you get a lot of heads turning when you go "Cruzin" with her! What type of suspension are you running? I really like the Tires also But I could never have them,keepin them clean would drive me nuts!
Do you have any Pictures of the interior and the motor?
Thanks for the eye candy! :3gears:
son owns mint condition 1962 buick special, dusty rose, 22,000 original miles. everythink original (even manual) except hoses and belts. was undriven and garage-kept by owners widow for 12 years until we purchased it. continues to be garage-kept. asking 4800.00 obo. northern illinois area.
I've got a 1956 Century. What a looker Original 322 nailhead. Body is straight as a string.
She started out life as "Tropical Coral" but now looks more pink and white. I call her the pink whale.
I've been spending my time going through the critical systems; cooling, electrical and brakes. As I finish these I plan to just cruise around in the 'ol girl a little and enjoy. Hope to repaint as time and money permit. Some rehroming is a must. With all that chrome - wow - got to make it look good!
That's a cool ride...the "PINK" part would make me kinda of uneasy to ride around in her...........BUT I still would!.... ! Good Luck with her! just kidding about the pink (sort of):laugh:

This board has some good stuff...
I'm glad I found it.
It is Quite Apparent Why YOU named Your Buick " Ricochet". The Light and Reflection just Bounces off and Scatteres in Every Direction.
What a Supurb Ride.
You have Yourself a Real Nice 56'. I think the Coral and Dover White is a Great Color for the Era. I have a 56 Special 2 door Hardtop Myself, but the body of My Buick is not in the fine shape Yours is in.
Good Luck with Her. with some work She will be the Talk of the Town and a lot of Fun Crusing
Thank you for the compliment - but I must confess the photos look better than the car at this time. But it is straight, I have the hub caps in the trunk and as this evening, I started to buff out the oxidized paint. Doesn't look too bad... good enough to drive out to have a burger or better!
I need a couple of things right away - noteably a new headlight switch. Any ideas where I might locate one quickly?
SoCal, try these guys in Phoenix: http://www.dvap.com
They are a gold mine for us older Buick guys. I got a factory clock that sits on top of the dash from them for twenty bucks. If you are ever out Phoenix way, this place is a definite stop.
Thanks for the tip - I just sent them an email requesting availability of the part and price. 40 acres - yikes. That's a lot of cars. :laugh:

What constitutes a Buick as Classic? Age, Body Style, Production Numbers? Just curious.
Just bought this condition 4 car from a guy in Havasu City. He has owned it for about 10 years. He got it to primer and ran out of dough.
Still waiting for delivery.
Looking for parts
Can you guys help me out? I'm looking for a good place to locate parts for my '56. I'm in need of small things like switchs, door handle, replacement clock, etc. Any help is appreciated.
This is a great site; glad I found it!
