    Default 62 LeSabre

    Here is my 1962 Buick LeSabre. It has 51K original miles. It has a 401 Nailhead. I have added Jamco springs and shocks and Billet Specialties High Boy wheels.

    Thanks for the compliments! The front wheels are 18x8 with a 4.75 backspace. The rear wheels are 20x10 with a 5.5 backspace. I don't remember the front tire size but I'm thinking it ias 225/40/18. The rear tire size is 275/35/20. The rear clearance is so close! You may want to go with a 20x8.5 in the back. The Buick's have a large center bore of 88mm. Check to see if the Boss wheels can accomodate that.

    Ok Woody and Louie,

    Should this 60k mile Invicta be lowered with wheels or left alone?

    Thanks John. Got it home last night and drove to work today. Runs good, but the damn speed alert is stuck at 60, that buzzing sound is annoying, going to have to unhook that asap!

    Thanks for the advice Lou, I may lower it, but not bag it, I already have one like that. I would want to keep the dollars spent lower. Have a local guy who says he wants to buy it, only needs to come up with the money, lol.
