      66 Buick Special

      Got it out in natural light today for the first time in quite a while. First test drive on the new suspension, tires and wheels. Enjoyed it even if it was short lived. Got no dash or anything else in it right now so I didnít go far.

      Great to see another Buick on here. Nice stance.... What are future plans for it?

      The suspension will end up with air I hope. Haven’t decided between an older LT1 or a 5.3 yet. Leaning to the 5.3 because of the crazy support for those swaps. Paint will be charcoal, black nickel chrome bumpers and trim and a blue interior. Long term goals for sure! Building it for my wife to enjoy and drive so I’m trying not to go stupid with it.

      1966 was an exceptional year for automobile styling! Beautiful gem you have there! The patina or primer is exquisite! 5.3's are wonderful power plants. then of course there are coyote swaps.... I jest LOL!

      Best wishes on your build!

      Thanks. The patina is actually a really old repaint. The car was originally white and repainted silver at some point. The white under the silver is the factory paint. Very solid car with no rust in the fenders, rockers or doors. Minimal body work needed so I’m happy!
