    I'd drive the wheels off this thing. I think it would make a great spring - fall daily driver.

    If I only had the space.....and cash....

    You and me both:). As I said, I wouldn't have even posted the lead. It'd already be a done deal.

    Nice
    I’d put my Chevelle drive train with the raised fiberglass Gs hood. Leave body as is. Rough n ready.
    Full cage n run 10.0 index or faster.

    I suspect the seller is getting a lot of interest and realizing he might be able to squeeze out a few more bucks. An in-person cash offer from a local buyer will probably end the bidding. Cash talks.

    this was my reply


    Thank you for your interest in our Buick. Right now we are collecting bids but will be able to show it next week. There is no rust but we will post pics of the underside and trunk on the website this week. We have the owner's manual and original car keys in their original leather case. The car belonged to my mom and next week I can go to my mom's safety deposit box and look for the original invoice and any other paperwork. She was the only owner and custom ordered it from Buick. I can give you a call next week to set up an appointment if you're still interested.

    Looks like mom was banging into a lot of things. The rear bumper is also pushed in if you look closely.

    They were just daily driven cars. It’s what was available. And you could order a car. Not settle for a lot model. Some beaten hard and left soaking wet or just abandoned. Bottom to top shelf.

    It’s a car. These cars were cross bred out here in the metro streets. Built for action. You never knew who cross bred what except to know who the owner was and what his preference of power was.
    I know some pretty quick cross bred cars still lurking the streets.
    It’s a car, do as you please.
    The rare ones are being preserved. The rest need to keep rolling. Lot of modern racers we have to keep in line, lol.

    I could be wrong,, but as cool as the car is, even the $12k initial asking price was/is about top $ for it IMHO. There are a few exceptions but '71-2 350 hardtops just don't tend to bring a lot.

    I agree with you, Dan. If the owner is taking bids, I hope cooler heads don't exceed his original asking price.

    Yes, you (& Bob w/his Limemist bench seat car) know all too well the market limitations on '71-2 hardtops. Still amazes me how long it took both of you to sell those cars and Bob's initially sold for sub $10k on eBay to it's PO and is very comparable this one but was arguably in better & just as orig. condition & yours had buckets/console and was in great orig. cond. I'd have been proud to own either one.

    Hey guys he might be willing to trade the car for a few sheets of plywood and a bundle of 2"x4" studs. They have about the same value these days.
