    This is Rose, hence the hand painted rose on the gas door. Powder Blue 1963 Buick LeSabre 4-Door Sedan. Smooth running and church-quiet 364 cubic inch "Nailhead" V8 with perfect shifting automatic transmission. No significant drips on my garage floor. One finger power steering and power brakes. Rose has always been cared for and maintained to daily driver standards. Which means, EVERYTHING WORKS. All lights, gauges, idiots lights, wipers, heater, radio and horn function properly. Even the license plate light works. Serviced and repaired as needed. List of current service and upgrades documented below. Capable of driving to Florida today. Interior and exterior are both in very nice condition. Repainted approximately 25 years ago. The finish shines and the cars presents well. The trunk lid has oxidized slightly but a power buffer or mild wet-sanding would rectify that. Original chrome and exterior trim are in good shape. All glass is nice. She's straight as an arrow looking down the sides. No evidence of shoddy previous body work. No waviness or washboard effect. All body panels have excellent fitment. Doors, hood and trunk open easily. Rock-solid car. Some tiny paint blisters in a few isolated areas but very minor. Overall impressive appearance. Original undersides, floors and trunk are bone dry and Mint. The interior is extremely nice. 3 cracks on the dash pad is the only flaw to mention. Seats, carpet, door panels and headliner are gorgeous. All 4 windows roll up and down perfectly. The original tissue dispenser is still there. Three sets of seatbelts front and rear. And, 3 ashtrays for those times you just can't wait to get home before lighting up. Ah, those were the days with my parents in the 70's. Wasn't everybody in the car actually smoking that cigarette? Thanks mom, thanks dad. Anyway, this is a wonderful old car in every way. Recent work done and upgrades performed:
    *New wheels and tires (Les Schwab)
    *New brakes (Les Schwab)
    *New shocks and a couple of steering components (Les Schwab)
    *New cooling system, original radiator restored
    *Interior heating gone through, new heater core installed
    *New sound system with Bluetooth and media capabilities
    The above list constitutes about $3,500 invested within the last 1,000 miles
    Again, this car is truly "Turn-Key" Just toss the keys to anyone and say go. No lesson required. Rose starts, runs, drives and handles like she should. Drives like glass at 75mph. Such a sweetheart. Compliments all the time. Hoping to find a family that will use the seatbelts and attend classic vehicle events. She can hold her head high at car shows and cruise-in's. Beautiful and wonderful old car that's ready to be enjoyed. We live on Lake Tapps in the Bonney Lake area. Clean title, multiple sets of keys and some extra's will be included. Genuine buyers only please. $5200 Direct calls preferred. Yes, I have the latest iPhone. Brief text communication is okay. At 53 years old I don't enjoy full conversations via instant messaging. 253-279-o2o7

    OK V8 Buick People: Truth be told. I put a HELLUVA lotta credence in this car. The price is decent. It's appearing very tidy and seems very serviceable. Purchase, drive, enjoy! A good look, test drive and get it up in the air and it's a done deal !! Hurry or ot it's legit
    it'll be long gone !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mitch

    And it's a 63 with a 401 open Dynaflow not a 64 WITH A 300.

    This is cheap.. Last time I saw a car priced at $5200, you had to replace everything twice to get it where it has the same condition as this Buick..
