68 Buick GS :cool:

Sitting in a barn for 15+ years. 81k original miles. Motor, drivetrain, etc all numbers matching. I know both owners (father/son) of the car. Was ordered brand new from local dealer.


Bottom of the panels are in pretty rough shape all the way around. The whole passenger side is basically junk from sitting next to that wall with windows busted out.

All chrome trim and badges are there. A bunch of it is removed and is inside the car.


I've been dieing for something to wrench on, but this is obviously a much greater project than just screwing around in the garage for a while.

It's got plenty of negatives, but quite a few nice things about it as well. Most importantly, I can get it for next to nothing...possibly nothing. I was hoping it was in at least a little better shape, but it is what it is.


and now for the carnage.....

I've always wanted some old muscle, but never done anything near this much work. I'm torn...

with little to no initial investment, I could just nickel and dime it over the course of a few years. :rofl:
