Classic Car Facts

If you’re looking for a 1950s cruiser with plenty of eye appeal, look no further than this gorgeous 1956 Buick Special.

Finished in a handsome combination of Burgundy and Silver, this car’s fresh finish has a beautiful luster that is further enhanced by an abundance of chrome.  Virtually all of the exterior chrome was refinished when its cosmetic restoration was completed in 2013, and the result is a mirror-like appearance from bumper to bumper.   Dummy spotlights, new American Racing wheels, and a dual exhaust complete the look.

The striking colors of the exterior are echoed in the car’s newly completed interior, which is finished in two-tone Burgundy and Gray vinyl.  The door panels, carpeting, and dash pad were also recently completed, and show very nicely.  The steering wheel and dash board are also in good condition, exhibiting some minor patina.  You will also appreciate this car’s 6-way power seats, updated FM radio, and power antenna.

Under the hood you will find a 322 CID Nailhead V-8 mated to an automatic transmission.  Recent mechanical upgrades include the following:

  • New intake
  • New Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor & choke
  • New fuel lines
  • New electric and mechanical fuel pumps
  • New fuel filter
  • New gas tank
  • Rebuilt generator & regulator
  • New electric windshield wipers
  • New hoses & belts
  • New front disc brakes
  • New tires
  • New wheels

Having just 64,700 original miles, this car runs and drives as well as it looks.

One item of note is that the clock is not currently functioning.  In addition, although the radio functions, it needs to be permanently wired into the car.  The original shop manual will be included with sale.

If a well running and driving 1950s classic in a great color combination is what you desire, this 1956 Buick Special is the one for you!
