    So I know it's not a b body ,or for that fact even a mopar! But you guys can let it slide right? I've had a thing for these big body g.m. fortress on wheels so I'm going to post my build up .I'm on another site called the Hamb.com it's for 1965 and older cars . It used to be a great site but it doesn't seem like anyone's interested in looking at it anymore. I like this site because everyone is interested in everything so tell me the truth no b.s how's it looking the run down is I bought the Buick from model t haven and it looked decent. Well after it got here the motor was sezed and I found a good amount of rust I wasn't told about. So I striped the car down. Pulled eng ,and trans and started cutting out rust. I also pulled the body off to make life easier for welding. Here's what I have for pictures I'm almost done with the welding!

            Thanks I don't know if I'd call it good work maybe OK I am never happy I've redone a few of the repairs because I didn't like them

              Looks pretty good for a car that's goddam near 70 years old. Is Super the Model or the level of restoration?

                man, got it right down to the real nitty gritty, and jumping right in!
                love that torpedo body style as well.
                gonna make it a lowered resto-mod, rat rod, stock?

                best wishes on your project regardless.

                  Super is the model there was a special,super,and road master .in that order is how they rank kinda like a charger ,charger so,and rt.
                  I'm actually doing a plan but and bolt restoration no modes ,except 12v conversion an alt instead of a generator. L.e.d. tail lights and a hidden Radio and speaker besides that all stock .
                  Here's my first Buick 143630-c02b55374c521676169d7b738354e64a.jpg
