The present keeper has retained this delightfully original-looking righthand drive straight-eight Saloon for the last 20 years. It is finished in the stately shade of Midnight Blue and trimmed in Brown leather. Apparently very well maintained, 'WUD 935' was resprayed 18 years ago and the electrical system converted from six to 12 volts. The classic Buick has recently benefited from a replacement radiator, exhaust system, brake shoes, tyres and window rubbers. Additionally, the petrol tank, master cylinders, and brake slave cylinders have all been refurbished and the brightwork rechromed. According to the vendor, this splendid item of Canadian-built Americana 'is on the button, runs as sweet as a nut, floats along and is as comfy as a Rolls-Royce'. The odometer currently registers a plausible 88,502 miles and the car comes complete with all MOTs to date, plus an advisory-free one valid to July 6 next year. Great style at an affordable price.
