Out of over 600,000 Buicks produced in 1965, there were only 3,365 Buick Special convertibles. The Special was Buick's low level intermediate car from 1964 until 1969. This example was originally purchased by a doctor from Ft. Wayne, Indiana. It is currently displayed here at Texas Classic Cars of Dallas. The exterior showcases a repaint of its correct Flame Red paint while the interior has also been restored, again in red. This is an affordable collector classic that you can drive and enjoy. Recent maintenance performed includes the brakes replaced and battery replaced. The rear shocks and springs were also replaced along with the swaybar.
The Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum is the fitting location for many of our photos. Be sure to visit the historic Flight Museum if you find yourself in Dallas, Texas. The wheels of choice are the original 14-inch Buick rims fitted with nice 205/75R14 Whitewall Radial tires all around. We also have a matching spare wheel/tire. The body shows exceptionally well and the paint is in very good condition. All of the distinctive brightwork is intact and in great shape, including the bumper chrome. The power operated black convertible top was replaced about 2 years ago and is in great shape. We also have the convertible top boot to match.

The firewall, inner fenders and core support display the original sheetmetal. The original trim identification plate is also intact. This is a true Flame Red car.
