It isn't a Buick, it is a Pontiac, very similar car. I know $13,500 is quite a ways from $4,000, but 4k can turn to 13k before you know it.

I have no connection to this car, just showing what can be found.

If so,. I just don't see him wanting 2k if he is the one holding up the deal. I don't know the whole deal; like is it advertized someplace, or word of mouth, or whatever. Seems like if it was advertized, he should have waited till he was able to deal.

I'd explain that I am ready, you are not, call me when you are available....and if I still want it by then, we will deal. AFTER I see it in person.

Just my way of doing things, not advice.

he has Emailed me back saying he would take 3900 with a deposit of 500.00 to take the car off the market. I'm thinking that i could send a postal money order via priority mail requiring a signature. that way if any funny business transpires i can sick the postal inspector on him for mail fraud. they tend to frown on stuff like that.

Tell him you have other cars you are considering to purchase, and you are a serious buyer for his! And by Oct.10th someone else might have your money...

Also, from pics i've seen of other cars from the Pacific Northwest of that vintage, they are so rusty you could hardly identify them as a car! This one looks very solid considering its location....

I'm not really a huge fan of that body style. I just love the prewar cars. I have a 66 Buick gransport nailhead engine that would go real nice in the 37. I can weld and fabricate and have a strong mechanical background so i'm really looking forward to diving in and making a car my own.

Just my 2 cents. I was right where your at 2 years ago. Bought my truck in a little worse condition. Had no real intention of going original....thats why buying it without a drivetrain didnt bother me. It sound like to me that you have a serious interest in the syling of the car...and your a Buick man. I personally dont see where you can go wrong. You've already got plans for a motor....nailhead....so youve got that whipped. I think if you've got a real mind to finish the project....and your family and budget supports your interest....go for it. I paid $3400 for my truck....and I dont regret it at all. By the way, I love the style of that car. That will make a real slick machine. And there are lots of people on this forum to help guide you along. I dont know where I wouldve been at this time without my fellow rodders here on Hotrodders! Everyone has been great! I am a member on a few other sites....but this forum is my favorite and gets 80% of my attention.

Dave

Well
the car popped up again and at a lower price. I'm going to look at it with cash in pocket and hopefully be hauling it home.

There is also a Buick Street Rod Association ni the Web. Probably be a fair place to look for parts Suppliers. Looks like a great resto Rod project
