You're looking at a very rare 1932 Buick Victoria (this is the smaller 50 series - 114" wheelbase). Only 2,194 of these were built. That is only quarter of the production of a 1932 Ford Victoria - not including the 1,000's of fiberglass Fords! Not only is it much rarer that a Ford, but it is also about a foot longer and includes an openable trunk. Stand out in a crowd of duece Fords with something different!
So, about this car in particular. I bought it a few years ago from a master craftsman hot rod builder in Washington state who was building it for himself before his untimely passing. It is clear that he was building a truly quality resto-rod, as the workmanship is fantastic! The bodywork is 95% complete, and very well done (the doors were not fitted before his passing, so they will need to be shimmed and fitted once to the assembly stage). The chassis is also 95% complete, including the stainless fuel tank, custom driveshaft and even brake plumbing. The steering is also complete. It still needs exhaust (past the headers), and of course disassembly for paint color of choice. The LS motor (truck) and automatic transmission are in place, and include a custom A/C compressor, exhaust manifolds and reprogrammed computer. Includes extentive new chrome work (headlights, front decor, etc), new wood (where not replaced with metal), and a great custom dash complete with new Classic Instruments, and a hidden A/C panel below the smoothed metal dash. Power window switches are controlled by original style handles on the doors. A new tilt column, Lokar floor shifter, custom e-brake are just a few more of the many details already in place. So much has been completed, yet there is much more to do. Please note that the wire wheels seen in a few of the photos are NOT included. The car is on shop roller wheels, ready for a custom set of wheels of your choice.
If you are looking for a quality start of a rarely seen car, you won't find another one like it! I've attached a number of photos for your review but would really encourage you to come see the car in person if you can.
I have also included a few photos of finished 1932-1933 Buicks to give an example of what this car will look like finished. Want to see more pictures? Email me for a photobucket link with 50+ images of THIS car.
I am selling the car with a clear PA ownership certificate, signed off (undated) and ready for a new registration. I will also include a copy of the bill of sale of when I purchased the car in 2013, as well as a new bill of sale for you.
The car is located in Paso Robles, CA - exactly 1/2 way between Los Angeles and San Francisco - on CA Hwy 101. More specifically, I'm 200 miles to greater LA or SF, and only 110 miles to either Bakersfield or Fresno (either/or....same either way).
