Up for sale is a one of a kind 1950 Buick Roadmaster TLC / ICON Derelict Convertible.
This vehicle features a custom engineered chassis married to an original patina'd 1950 Buick Roadmaster body, powered by a brand new Chevrolet LS7 motor (500 miles on the motor) with a GM automatic transmission. A few of the many upgrades to the vehicle include an automatic Mercedes-Benz convertible top with Rolls Royce hardware, bespoke Moore & Giles leather interior (seats 6), air conditioning, K&N air intake, Wilwood Brake kit (6 piston front, 4 piston rear), hidden Focal speaker system, one-off Circle Racing 6061 wheels with custom spun stainless hubcaps, as well as a custom steel engine cover from a 442 Oldsmobile complete with pained heads, to give the modern motor a more rustic appearance to match the rest of the car. The body of this vehicle has been CAD scanned and reinforced to provide the safety and rigidity of a modern car while maintaining its rustic look.
*The dash mounted iPhone dock system was recently replaced with a more simple USB jack. The vehicle was also fitted with a modern Air Conditioning system by ICON. The LS7 was replaced due to a recall by COX Chevrolet in Bradenton, FL. Everything else is as it was when it left ICON*
This car is a head turner and is enjoyed by everyone who has the privilege of riding in or driving it. The manufacturer went into extreme detail in every aspect of the build to create this automotive masterpiece.
