1936 Buick Special 41
What arrived at our shop in pieces is whole once again! When we took on this project for our customer the car was disassembled and none of the parts had any labels on them. There were buckets of bolts, most of which were broken off, and random parts from other cars to add to the puzzle. Adding to the challenge was poor print quality of original handbooks and complete lack of photos or comparable vehicles as this is a one year only, exceedingly rare model and year. The entire vehicle was restored to original with a couple minor modifications including a rumble seat and custom color burl wood on the dash and interior window surrounds.

|Completed restoration photo shoot underway in fall of 2020|
|With the interior fully wrapped in upholstery, you can hardly tell that the frame of the body and doors are wood|
The interior trim parts, cables for throttle and choke, as well as the gauge cluster and clock were all restored to original condition...
