1950 Buick Special Jetback Sedanette for SALE

1950 Buick Special Jetback Sedanette. $3,000.00. Warren (Detroit Metro), MI. This is a project car. It is a very desirable fastback body. I bought this car basically as it sits 8 years ago with the plans to make it a traditional 50’s custom. Sometimes life gets in the way so now I am offering this car up for someone else to enjoy. The car was disassembled when I purchased it and obviously does NOT run. The front fenders, rear quarter panels and deck lid have been stripped but now have surface rust as you can see. The owner that I purchased this car from had started filling in the trim holes on the fenders and quarters. The steel on this car is very solid with the exception of the floorboards. It looks like they have been patched but there are no huge gaping holes that I can see. The glass has been removed and some of the side glass is cracked but it is flat glass that can be purchased. The windshield and rear glass are the originals and are still useable. The engine is a straight eight with a manual transmission but there are parts missing from the engine. There is no intake/exhaust manifold, distributor or starter and also no generator. The interior is disassembled. The dash has been removed and disassembled and the interior trim pieces have been stripped. The seats are basically just springs but they can be redone. All of the gauges and bumper parts and fasteners that came with the car are in the trunk. This is definitely a project vehicle but not in the sense of major rust repair, just in the work involved to reassemble the car. But if you are looking for a great car to paint and put back together, half of the work has already been done for you. You will definitely need a trailer or a flatbed car hauler to get this home. I would not trust a 2-wheeled car dolly for transport.

This is a very desirable fastback body style and would be perfect for someone looking to do a restoration or a custom car with a different drivetrain. These cars look really great chopped if you have the skills or the money to do that.

Please call with any questions. Call Steve at 586-292-3318. It is best to call first as it may take a day or two to respond to an email. I will do my best to answer any inquiries.

Thanks and please call Steve at 586-292-3318.
