ESCC presents a great opportunity to join the classic car collecting world with this 1954 Buick Special. Buick’s entry-level Special was all-new for 1954, with a wider and lower stance, a less pronounced rear fender hump, blunt tailfins, new steering linkage, and better power steering. The mid-size model was the best-selling Buick, and was offered at a two-door sedan, a two-door Riviera hardtop (itself the best-selling Special for the year), a four-door sedan, a four-door station wagon, and a six-passenger convertible. Hardtops and convertibles had rounded rear wheel arches while the sedan and wagon had them squared off. All body styles had trim over the top of the arch, as well as three ventiports and a striking waterfall grille. Under the hood, the Special was powered by a new 264-cid V-8 engine that generated 146 hp when paired to a three-speed manual transmission, and 150 hp when mated to the Dynaflow automatic shifter. Buick Specials are solid collector cars, with a good turn of speed, handsome colors, and available trim packages. From a collector standpoint, parts, and trim in particular, are easier to find. As with any older car, buy the best car available, as it invariably costs more to fix a rough one. Here is my take on this example. It needs just a little TLC to be a perfect Sunday show car. Not uncommon with this model and years it could use some attention on the floor boards. There is some bubbling in the paint here and there. The interior is in surprisingly good shape. The car is priced to reflect those thoughts. If you are in the market for a classic that requires a minimal amount of work to reach the next level, look no further. The car is located in central NJ.
