    Thumbs up 1961 Buick LeSabre 2dr Bubbletop Kentucky project car

    *******************************************S*O*L*D*********************************************


    1961 Buick LeSabre 2dr Bubbletop, 364/dynaflow auto, non A.C. car with power steering/brakes
    Painted back in the mid 1980's with base/clear, showing age in spots.
    Car is complete, and solid with only minor rust repair needed(blister and bubbles down low)
    Needs interior work, seats were recovered back in the mid 80's.
    364 Nailhead is condensation siezed. It will turn partial revolution each direction, but I haven't got it to go all the way around yet. Been spraying PB Blaster in the plug holes and working it back and forth. No valves are stuck. engine oil was clean, and previous owner said the car ran and drove great before being stored.

    I started getting rid of the rock guard on the lower portions of the driver side, and block sanded the door. I also installed new hinge bushings.Bubbletop Buick 006.jpg
    There was some rear wheel lip work done in the past that needs to be looked at again.

    Cool Re: 1961 Buick LeSabre 2dr Bubbletop Kentucky project car

    Thanks Ro.

    Not a fire sale, just seeing if there's interest, due to my interest's in the automotive world changing/evolving.

    Too bad it doesn't run. If so I would be interested.

    That's my new rule...........whatever I buy must run. Doesn't have to run good but just needs to run.

    Bring a trailer, and a serious CASH offer.
    Door and fender are back on the car, hood goes on tomorrow, and I'll be ready to help load it on your trailer.

    I've found a couple cars I want, but this needs to go first.

    Tom,

    Super cool car but if it isn't running I'm out. I won't allow myself to push another car around here currently.


    If it doesn't sell and you get it running let me know. I would be in.

    I know now!! Run with my gut feeling.


    I'm sure this one or another will come up for sale. By then I'll have more time than money I'm sure.

    Made it home with the bubble top. It was a 10 hour drive from Michigan City to home pulling the full trailer. Also Dan and I had a good time hanging out with you and your dad at the shop Saterday. And thanks again for everything.
