Description:

Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale January 15th – 19th, 2014 at Russo and Steele''s 14th Annual Scottsdale Arizona Auction. Please contact us for more information.The 2-owner car was originally owned by the boss of the consignor’s father and purchased from his estate in 1965 after being stored in a warehouse for 3 years following the original owner''s death in a private plane crash in 1962. The consignor''s father, who was a founding member of the local AACA chapter, bought the car with the intent to restore it someday. It was driven sporadically for 3 years until they started to have some issues with the transmission. The consignor was then told that if he had it fixed, he could have the car. The consignor drove the car through high school and his first year of college, at which time he bought a new car and put the convertible in storage for over 20 years. The car was moved to his place in 1995 and disassembly began. During the restoration process, the consignor attended all the BCA Nationals to research vendors and he volunteered as a judge to learn as much as possible. The car was entirely stripped down to all its miscellaneous parts, with all sheet metal and the frame chemically stripped. All bumper pieces and the brightwork were sent to 2 different platers and all bolts and hinges were sent out for clear cad plating. The stainless trim was straightened and polished. The instruments, radio, antenna, door, window, and seat switches were sent out to be rebuilt. A new front clip was purchased, including factory air conditioning, to replace the rusted sheet metal on the car. The brake canister was sent for rebuilding and plating. The power steering pump and the steering gearbox were done. The air conditioning system was sent to Classic Air. The transmission was redone and the engine was totally rebuilt and balanced. There is not one item on the car that was not redone.After all this, it went to Autokraft for painting and reassembly. At that time, I purchased a 19,000-mile Roadmaster 4-door hardtop to use for reference and as a source for some better quality chrome and parts. All those parts were sent out for plating and the car was reassembled with the matching original convertible parts. The hardtop was sold when the convertible was finished. After reassembly, the car was taken to Iola, Wisconsin, where Vintage Woodworks did the interior and top. The convertible was finished in 2000 and then shown at the Buick Nationals, where it received its Senior Award with 398 out of 400 points. After several improvements, it was shown again the next year and was one of only 7 cars to score a perfect 400 points. The car was then shown at AACA meets where it received its 1st Junior, Senior, Grand National Junior, and finally, in July of 2013, its Grand National Senior Award. The car has only been driven from the trailer to the show site from the time it was finished. It has undergone refreshes every several years and is still as good as or better than any other Roadmaster in the country.
