1950 Buick Special Series 40

The Build

This is a gorgeous frame off restoration for a Buick Special. We rebuilt the 248 cubic inch Straight 8 from the block up and gave it a 400 Turbo Trans. We custom fitted a nine inch Currie differential with 355 Posi traction and coil-over 4 link rear suspension. Disc brakes and a dual diaphragm booster and dual master cylinder round out the build. A beautiful two tone, show quality paint and chromed bumpers complete the look.
