Newstalgia Motors Presents Car No. 00258:

1956 Buick Century 2 Door Hard Top

1956 Buick Century 2 Door Hard Top


- Hard to find, rare, numbers matching, and un-restored example of a true unmolested California car preserved in its original condition
- Only 84,000 original miles
- A fun-to-drive show winner that gets "thumbs up" wherever driven
- Enjoy as-is or a great candidate for a restoration!

Original factory Tahiti Coral (Code N) and Dover White (Code C) paint. The body is solid, rust-free, and with no signs of accident damage. There are several places near the bottom of each door that have had rust repair and are primered. All original chrome and stainless trim is in place and in very presentable condition.

The well-appointed 2-tone black and white Cordaveen (leather like patterned nylon) interior is presentable, but showing some signs of wear. The headliner and carpet are in good condition. The dash stainless trim, chrome, and dash pad, and door and kick panels are in remarkable condition. The steering wheel and horn ring, instruments and factory knobs, lamps and switches are all in their original condition and all electrical indicators are operable. An auxiliary gauge set in mounted below the dash. Options include power front disc brakes, power windows, and power steering. A rare, vintage, Sears Allstate "WORKING" Mini-Floor Swamp Cooler is included for those hot cruise days.
