Classic Car Overview

1938 Buick Coupe It seems like a car folks wont do without is the headline to what this writer considers a very passive way to get a point across. Almost proclaiming defiantly with trepidation! Better Buy Buick...one has to love the 30s Huh? Like the internet of today, if it says it, and its on there it has to be true.. A tastefully done hot rod with plenty of custom bodywork, a fresh interior, and a 350 Chevrolet crate engine with custom exhaust, low profile tires and snazzy aluminum wheels. Bathe it in deep blue and you have a touch of Buick class that goes like the wind and slips neatly into the modern era of motoring. Exterior As the consigner states this car was shaved, frenched, has a mild chop and all the seams were filled. We are left with a beautiful pontoon fender style torpedo back end 2-Door Coupe that presents itself in a category I would not put many hot rods into...a tasteful racer if you will. From the large bullet style headlight casings that now have halogen headlights with built in signals, to the wonderfully designed wrap around V style split in the middle grille were rockkin the look. Throw on a front hinged clamshell hood, and smooth the venting on the cowls, and this car is the definition of slip stream. So much so the I think the air is afraid to touch it! The remaining chrome on this car is mirror-like and near perfect. On all corners we see custom American Rims in aluminum 18 inches for the fronts and 20 inches for the rears. These are wrapped in low profile tires, and since Im a sucker for these, Im all in...Let it ride.... Interior A swing of the door (all be it with the remote) we are met with yards of broadcloth in a muted gold color. An outer panel on the door is a fuzzy broadcloth, and the inner panel and the door pull is covered with a small square tweed and has a stitched embroidered opposing palmetto palm patterns in it. The front bucket seats present this same way with the embroidered tweed inserts, and smooth bolsters both in broadcloth. In back we can see what appears to be a large storage area, but 2 jump seats fold down to the rescue. Upfront a custom deep blue metal dash with actual burl wood insert houses several gauges, knobs, and A/C, as well as a CD player. Fronting the dash is a tilt column chrome banjo style steering wheel. Seats are power, and so are the windows. Carpet is lush gold and headliner is nice and tight looking like mohair. Drivetrain A 350ci Chevrolet engine fired with HEI ignition, snakelike headers and a custom exhaust sits within a pristine engine bay. Fresh ignition wires, new plugs and an oil change have just been performed prior to dropping her off at the mall. A Muncie 4-speed manual transmission actuated with a hydraulic slave cylinder clutch is behind the healthy mill. Plenty of chrome plating to go around for all the bolt ons stuck to this engine. Undercarriage Due to this car being a frame off restoration, several liberties were taken including a boxed frame that was finished with a hammer type powder coated finish. A Mustang II rack and pinion steering setup, and a 4 link rear suspension are seen in this very clean rust free totally restored undercarriage environment. Drive-Ability Hopping into this car I felt like an art patron viewing a masterpiece only I was actually interacting with it. The seats are plush and all is perfectly ergonomically placed. This car lit right up, and I was off for the test track. It cruised smoothly, accelerated on my demand, and shifted effortlessly. The low stance led to great handling despite being in a large coupe. All that broad cloth and padding I could barely hear the engine running. Just a wonderful, nicely performed, tasteful restoration/modification. Buick provided the basics with the pontoon fenders and torpedo rear, but all that frenching, shaving and chopping make it a work of rolling art, on low profile tires none the less!
