Available Buick Century Special from the year 1936 registered in 1938 in Spain.

It's a maintained and unrestored unit with 82 years of age, despite which it starts and runs correctly. It has never been restored in depth and is in very good condition for its age, although a periodic service needs to be done for proper operation.

The starter has been recently disassembled and repaired, the brake system oil and engine oil have been replaced.

You can see a video of the current condition in this link:

The bodywork shines, even though it has signs of age. The window crystals are in a la less good condition due to the water filtration over time and its seals need to rehydrate, it does not show visible signs of rust on the outside.

Both the chrome and the other parts are in good overall condition. Between the door and body, rust which has affected paintwork can de found. The rear lights correspond to a Seat/Fiat 1400 B from the 50’s.

Inside everything is maintained in original condition. The internal gauges work properly, an oil pressure gauge has been added but it is integrated into the original design of the time, only a trace of surface rust can be seen under the carpet.

For a pre-war model which has not undergone a complete restoration, we can say its overall condition is good, and as a base for a restoration project, it is an excellent opportunity, it has Spanish documentation and has been standing on trestles and unused in a private garage for the last 10 years, so a full revision is recommended.

The car is located in Madrid, Spain.
