Rare 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible Lot #25SH

You are bidding on a RARE 1953 Buick Skylark convertible. 17046513. We are working to match titles and will update. I did find the firewall or cowel plate. The VIN tag is complete in the door jam. This rare car was a family car. In the 1960’s the family told me that they had a garage fire and the car was in there. I appears to have been repainted. The hood ornament still looks a bit funky like heat. I have the wire spoked rims and they will go with the car. The car is a Rocket 88 V8 and 3 speed on the column manual transmission. Does not run. There is no air cleaner. There are 64,846 miles on the odometer. The car has rust in the body. It has been inside, but with raccoons. It is on the hubs. The body has rust in the lower body. Rust in the floors, on the frame, quarters, rockers, and in the fenders. There is some trim that is missing from the car. The car appears to have been a red car with black convertible top. It had a matching red and white leather interior. The interior is rough. There is some damage on the body. This rare car will be a beauty and treasure and is for restore. Believe it or not this is the second one we have sold this year. Good Luck! This is part of the Brown Estate in SE Wisc. This is a timed On-LINE ONLY AUCTION. ALL SALES ARE AS IS AND ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO EXCEPTIONS. SERIOUS BIDDERS ONLY. Money Wire or Verified Funds for ALL Purchases. NO CC accepted.

Due to the location, safety, and family privacy, no preview available at this time. The vehicles, Most all do not roll, have flat or no tires. They all do not run. These cars are for restore. Winning Bidders will be given the location and times for pickup/arrangements. The family will be happy to tell winning bidders about their Father/Father-in-Law. The location is easily accessible and the cars are easily accessible and load if you have a winch, trailer, and pickup. The location will not let a SEMI transport to drive in. You would need a roll back and then off-load onto the truck on the road. I am having an expert review the cars and will add those comments after his inspections. This is a very fun collection of Rare and hard to find cars and you will be the talk of the town with these barn finds. Happy bidding and rememeber serious bidders, Please.
