The "55 Buick Special is the same size as a "55 Chevy and weighs about the same. It"s also got plenty of interior room for those of us who"ve "expanded" over the years. The stock seats are very comfortable for those with back backs (any fussy wives!) and the ride is very comfortable as well.
If you"ve "outgrown" your traditional "32 or earlier hot rod, perhaps this roomy and comfortable Buick would be perfect for you.
