1985 Buick Hearse Additional Info:

For your consideration, this 1985 Buick hearse. It may not be the most collectible funeral coach; it definitely has its cosmetic flaws. But she has her high points.

The pros: when I bought this girl, I took her to Bussards near me (go check out “Bussard’s All Pro” on Yelp, which says it all) and told them “make her roadworthy—I don’t want to worry about anything.” So, this car has a new battery, radiator flush/paint, new hoses & clamps, etc; heating and cooling systems flushed and serviced, plus heater hoses and clamps; brake inspection, wheel balance, wheel bearings serviced, new thermostat, new catalytic converter; carburetor serviced and repaired, vacuum hoses repaired and serviced, etc etc. Also four new tires, which I can’t find the receipt for, but you can tell by looking at them, they’ve barely been driven on.

The cons: some scrapes and dents. The headliner is droopy. You need a flathead screwdriver (or whatever) to help open the hood. There’s just a key for the ignition but none for the doors. Stuff like that. She’s a little banged up inside too (but that just means you can haul stuff without worrying about scratching up a pristine interior.) In the pictures you’ll notice there’s no damaged right taillight—because after they were shot, an interested party was test driving and backed into a bus bench. (So, not selling to that guy.) In one image you’ll notice the new ding, and that I picked up a new part to be installed.

Car recently smogged and registered (till September), clean title.

Point being, she glides anywhere like a champ (though her rear end rides a little low, so don't speed through the dips). Anyway, after doing all this work (like 3k+ worth) why am I getting rid of her? 'Cause I've got a '64 finally coming home from restoration, and I need the garage space— it's time for someone else to have fun with this gal.

Ask questions! Bid like crazy!
