1957 Buick Roadmaster Sedan
1957 Buick Roadmaster Sedan
Roadmaster! The very name conjures up images of a big, powerful highway locomotive -- which is just what Buick intended. And that's just what the Buick Roadmaster really was from 1936-1958 -- and again to a considerable degree, for 1991 and 1992.
For consignment and looking for the person who has vision and loves cars. This '57 Roadmaster needs lots of TLC, some frame straightening and strengthening then you can get to the real work on the body. The positive side, you will then be the new owner of a real classic, considered one of the nicest offering from any of the Big 3 for this year.
A long time ago some bodywork was attempted and abandoned but during that time the vents on the front quarter, and sections of the body were worked, in that they were stripped and sprayed with primer. This work did not play out on the either side as invasive rust has taken over on the doors, and the lower part of the rear door. Chrome is mostly there save for the rear quarter swoop spear on the passenger's side. The front bumper resides in the passenger compartment, and all chrome will need a thorough re-plating.
Again, your creative mind will be left to run wild in here. The original pallet was shades of green used in broadcloth, and sprayed metal, plastic and felt fabric forms. Dual benches stretch from door to door, the dash is original and appears to have all knobs and switches intact.
A 364ci V8 with a single 4-barrel atop and a 2-speed Dynaflow automatic transmission has been installed. A 3.07 axle is on the back. It is unknown if it is the original powertrain that came with this car from the factory. NOTED this engine did not start or crank so we can classify it as inoperable.
A look underneath and where that damage is on the doors has also invaded the frame, and the frame was bent in the incident where the passenger front sustained its damage.
An ambitious project, or simply for original parts needed for another restoration, either way pieces frozen in time ready to be rejuvenated and enjoyed again.
