Up for sale here is a barn find 1954 Buick Super Convertible. This car is a true survivor car. I purchased the car from an older gentleman who had owned it and had it stored in his barn for approximately the past 10 years. The car is a well maintained original car that has had necessary work done to it over the years, but is still a nice original car. The original color was Willow Green, but as you can see it has had a color change done to it at some point in it's life. This color change may have been the only paint job the car ever had, I can still see the original green under the weather stripping in the trunk. They did a very good and proper color change though, with the firewall being painted, ect. There are no bubbles in the paint or anything like that, the car is nice and straight and appears to be rust free. The drives side floor has been patched with sheet metal, and I see a couple smaller repairs on the rear floor, but the rest appears to be all original. The trunk is very solid, including the spare tire well. The underside is in excellent condition, very dry and solid. This is a southern USA car and not a rust bucket or a patched up car. The glass is all in excellent condition, and all labelled with the E-Z Eye factory tint logo, so it appears to be all original glass. The chrome and trim on the car is in excellent condition, I'm not sure if the bumper have been re-chromed, but they are very nice ! There is little to no pitting in the grill or other pot metal parts of the car. The top has been replaced, some time ago I would say, but still looks like new, and is the correct black color top. The top cylinders were replaced and the power top works good. The interior is original and in excellent condition for original. There are no tears, cuts, burns ect. It's a two tone green interior. I put new carpet in it, the seats and door panels are very good, still original ! The car has a power antenna as well. The original radio turns on and noise comes out, but I have not been able to get a station, it is AM after all ! It has a new rad in it. The motor is the original 322 CID Nailhead with the 2 spd automatic. transmission. It starts and runs good and under the hood is detailed and looks very nice. The transmission shifts fine. Overall I would describe the car as a really good original car. It has been painted atleast once, with the color change, and a new top put on it, otherwise it's very original. It has not been hot rodded or messed with over the years, has the original air cleaner ect. As I am sure you know finding a 60 year old, mid '50's convertible that's not been a rust bucket that someone has pieces together can be hard. This car really is as nice as it looks and will not disappoint.
We specialize in 1955 - 1956 Cadillac Car Parts. I bought my first Cadillac, a 1956 Coupe De Ville over 20 years ago and have been passionate about Cadillac’s ever since. After spending 5 + years restoring that 1956 Coupe and then subsequently owing and working on several others including a 1957 Brougham, 1955 Biarritz, a 1958 Seville and a 1959 Convertible it became clear that there was a desperate need for parts to not only keep these cars on the road but to help restore them to their former glory. Faded Fins was born out of this need.
I specialize in used, OEM parts to ensure proper fit and quality. I normally have 20 - 24 cars that I am parting out at any given time, this way I have the correct part from the correct year and model of Cadillac. This is important because there were so many different models made, and the parts do not always interchange not only from year to year, but from model to model. With so many cars and so many parts it is impossible to list all my parts so please e-mail me with your requests and I will do my very best to help you.
