You're looking at avery rare 1932 Buick Victoria (this is the smaller 50 series - 114" wheelbase). Only 2,194 of these were built.That is only quarter of the production of a 1932 Ford Victoria - not including the 1,000's of fiberglass Fords! Not only is it much rarer that a Ford, but it is also about a foot longer and includes an openable trunk. Stand out in a crowd of duece Fords with something different!

So, about this car in particular.... I bought it about five years ago from the estate of a master craftsman hot rod builder in Washington state who was building it for himself before his untimely passing.It is clear that he was building a truly quality resto-rod, as the workmanship is fantastic!The bodywork is90% complete, and very well done (the doorswere not fitted before his passing, so they will need to be shimmed and fitted onceto theassembly stage).The chassis is also 95% complete, including the stainless fuel tank, custom driveshaft, drop down battery box and most of the brake plumbing.The steering is also complete.It still needs exhaust (past the headers), and of course disassembly for paint color of choice. The LS motor (truck) and automatic transmission are in place, and include a custom A/C compressor, exhaust manifolds and reprogrammed computer. Also includes an extensive list of new chrome work (incl. lights, front decor, etc), new wood (where not replaced with metal), and a beautiful custom dash complete with new Classic Instruments and a hidden A/C panel below the smoothed metal dash. Power window switches are controlled by original style handles on the doors. A new tilt column, Lokar floor shifter and custom e-brake are just a few more of the many details already in place. So much has been completed, yet there is much more to do. Please note that the wire wheels seen in a few of the photos are NOT included. The car is on shop roller wheels, ready for a custom set of wheels of your choice.

If you've ever built a hot rod, you can see that the investment in the car is 2X my starting, no reserve price (and that is without the price of the original car to start with). The parts alone exceed the starting price! If you are looking for a quality start of a rarely seen car, you won't find a better deal.... or another one like it! And yes - I know you can buy a finished car for 40-70K so why would it make sense to pay over 20K for this? Look, if you like to finished cars out there - do it! But if you want to build it YOUR way, in YOUR colors and finishes and not have someone else's car - then this is the way to go.

I've attached a number of photos for your review but would really encourage you to come see the car in person if you can. I have also included a few photos of finished 1932-1933 Victorias to give an example of what this car will looklike finished. Want to see more pictures? Here is a photobucket link with many, many more images of this car:

I am selling the car (and a few of my other projects) because I just bought a finished '32 Victoria and a '34 Club Sedan (both resto-rods) in the January auctions, and I am looking to add some room back in my shop (and bank account). I have a clear PA ownership certificate (signed off, undated and ready for a new registration). I will also include a copy of the bill of sale of when I purchased the car in 2013, as well as a new bill of sale for you.

The car is located in Paso Robles, CA - exactly 1/2 way between Los Angeles and San Francisco - on CA Hwy 101. More specifically, I'm 200 miles to greater LA or SF, and only 110 miles to either Bakersfield or Fresno (either/or....same either way).

If you are a sincere buyer, you can call me at 805- three nine one -0509 (cell), or email me directly at hotrodranch@live.com.My name is Scott, and I happy to answer questionsabout this project (or any of my other projects being offer)......but please askBEFOREyou bid!

This car is also offer for sale locally, and I reserve the right to end the auction early (but ONLY if there are no bids on the car). And if you are a new ebay buyer (with no feedback yet), you must contact me first before bidding, or I will cancel your bid. This is because I've had two experiences where new bidders never even contacted me after winning an auction.

Thanks for looking and good luck!
