This is Art Deco at its finest. Very rare 2 door fast back with Dynaflow transmission. I havent seen another one like this anywhere including an extensive search of the internet. You will occasionally find the 2 door out there but not with the dynaflow. This was the first year that they offered it and the only ones I have seen them in were the 4 door version. The car is an older restoration and is ready for someone to either restore it or make a sled head out of it. I recently had the oil changed and the brake cylinders replaced. The tires are very good. The gas tank does need to be cleaned. The paint on it is starting to peel. The interior was re-done in crushed velour and looks good if you think crushed velour looks good! The engine runs but lacks power. Not sure if its the carb or the head needs to be re-done. The car is complete! I even have a few extra trim pieces a radiator and a custom tow hitch in case you wanted to pull your old air stream or tear drop trailer around with you once you re-stored this beautiful car. I have the vehicle for sale locally and reserve the right to sale it as such. Shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer, however I will help out anyway that I can. PAYMENT: A non-refundable deposit of $500 is to be made within 24 hours of the end of the auction. The remaining balance is to be made within 7 days.
Inside Line reports Buick is planning to bring back some of the more storied names from the company's past, including the Grand National, GNX and the T-Type. Those cars rose to prominence in the 1970s and '80s to become performance legends of their day.
The new models will reportedly make use of the rear-wheel drive platform that currently underpins the Cadillac ATS and all would arrive as sedans - according to an unnamed source familiar with the initiative. Odds are the T-Type and the Grand National would share a driveline, with honest money being on a new twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 as the engine of choice. Word has it the mill will be good for anywhere from 350 to 400 horsepower.
That leaves only the GNX. Inside Line seems to think that machine could get down the road with some help from the all-new GM LT1 small-block V8. The engineers behind the ATS platform have already told us the engine bay is large enough for to accommodate the big eight pot, and since GM is most certainly working on an ATS-V, a slightly less powerful, less luxurious Buick iteration makes some kind of sense. We can't wait to see these things in the light of day.
With all eyes fixed on General Motors in the wake of the ignition recall debacle, the auto giant has been carefully calling in a wide array of vehicles to fix anything and everything that could prove problematic. Just the other day it issued two separate recalls - one concerning the Cadillac SRX and another its heavy-duty pickups - and now it is issuing another.
This time the vehicles in question are the Buick Enclave, Chevy Traverse and GMC Acadia, three fullsize crossovers based on GM's Lambda platform. In an estimated 51,640 units manufactured between March 26 and August 15, 2013, the engine control module has been found to incorrectly display the level of fuel in the tank.
As a result, owners are being notified to bring their vehicles in to their local dealers to have the ECU reflashed to fix the problem. View the full details in the announcement below from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
We admit it. We have no earthly idea how this whole thing is going to shake out.
Typically, after driving a new car or truck, we come away prepared to hazard a guess as to whether said model has a good chance of being a sales success. We've amassed enough time watching the industry, scrutinizing the competitors, and so on, to make a reasonably educated bet. Yet here we are, days removed from driving the new 2013 Buick Encore, and we still have no bloody idea.
