I've been a long time fan of BFH so I always kept my eyes open for those hidden gems. Mine started during a quick gloss through my local CL ad. After a few weeks going back an forth on price, and being the only person to actually show up to look at the car, I found myself dragging home a 1963 Buick Electra 225 4 door hardtop with the legendary 401 Nailhead topped with the Wildcat 445 carb. As Tom would say, These cars are as valuable as the stories behind them. This Buick turns out to be a one-family-owned survivor with just over 67k miles. The cars original purchaser died suddenly after its purchase and was inherited to his brother. The Buick was well maintained and lightly driven on short family trips and weekend adventures. The vehicle was taken off the road in 1980 soon after he died ultimately being left to his son. The vehicle found its home to no less than 3 barns during its hibernation, only seeing a few upkeep tinkering here and there. This is where I enter its story. A backyard barn along side a sub shop at the end of an ally, in the middle of a small city in Upstate New York. It has called this dusty barn its home for 15 years with the smell as proof. As the pandemic started to take hold, I found myself laid off with a new project in hand with little funds. Within the first weekend I had it running and driving and soon after, going on cruse nights and ice-cream runs. Currently I'm back to work and amassing much needed parts to further our adventure together. Thanks for your time and I hope you enjoy P.S. I got Hagerty Insurance ...... OF COURSE !!
