We have this very nice steel body somewhat original 38 Buick 8 business coupe. It has been modified to add some of the more creature comforts, such as a/c and power windows, custom interior and a 12 volt electrical system. This is a fun driver. It was not a full restoration, but had just enough upgrades to be a very presentable old classics. The 2 bbl Carter carb was just completely rebuilt by Todd at Dallas Customs and Classics. The car runs great now. Power windows were added and work just fine.
Custom interior was also added. The seats were a bit low since the owner is over 6 feet tall. We added risers, but may still need a bit more lift if you are short. Classic Instrument gauges were installed, but are not working. There is some Bondo on this area of the passenger side door jam. The undercarriage is really in quite good condition. There doesn't seem to be any rust. The frame is very solid. A new electric fuel pump was recently added. There is this one spot of rust showing through. The hood is a bit modifies as well. Just the upper portion of each side raises up. the side panels are attached. There are these 2 stress cracks on each side of the car. This is a great car for someone to finish out and make a great street rod, or just to improve on it as is and have a fun car that really looks great.
