    Not too bad; - if I was closer and able to cross the border I'd go look at it. I wouldn't mind one like I currently have with a roof and possibly some A/C, it'd be a great cruiser.

    It says no test drive on the paper in the window. Really?

    Yeah, I thought that was kind of weird too...

    The car has been sitting there (outside a body shop) for quite a while... heck, give them a call.

    That's not a Buick guy, 445 is the torque rating of the 401 Nailhead.

    Asking $7,000, but: no test drive....:eek:
    Looks like he was asking $7,700.

    Love the '64-'66 boats. Great lines without the heavy look coming in later years. Six body trunk, cool tail light designs. And gotta love a nailhead.

    $7K is a deal but after sitting this long on his lot wonder how much he'd take in in cold cashish...

    Considering the “Rona” economy and how long it’s been sitting... cash talks

    I'd buy it without a test drive. His area's local customer base is probably just full of joy riders and tire kickers. That said, would not buy without a ride-along and putting it on a lift.

    It's sorely tempting, but with the exchange rate, shipping and all of that it'll be $10-12K before it's standing in my driveway and I even have a chance to see if it runs or drives, so no, hard pass for me.

    No test drive!? Is cool a custom coupe with the fused rear window! My first Buick and first car was a 66 225 coupe!

    OK V8 Buick People: Listen to Mitch. Look at it carefully, give it a good stiff test drive and get it wayyyyy up in the air. Also be prepared to walk if it ain't what you want. Mitch

    You roll up in his lot with a trailer and cash, he’ll be a fool not to allow a test drive. I think that’s on there to weed out folks who barely understand ‘no’. He’s probably had his fill of them.

    Perhaps the “445” motor doesn’t run? “17,000+ miles...” Maybe 117,000 or even 217,000? Almost as if the current owner doesn’t know much about the vehicle... I think I’ll call to get the background.
