This is a rare - long-time family owned - 1933 Buick Model 67, fully restored in 1988 in excellent condition.
The current owners' parents - born in the 30's - purchased this 1933 Buick Model 67 in the early 80's and had Gary DeCrane's Vintage Wheels in Woodhull, Illinois restore it to its FULL GLORY in October 1988 at a cost of $33,000.00. It was enjoyed and shown regularly in the mid-west car shows in the 1990's. The wife passed away in 1997, and he moved to Texas and took the Buick it for an occasional spin. He passed away in 2011, and now their kids (in their 50's) are ready to pass this special piece of history on to a new owner.
In 1933, the country was in the depths of the Great Depression with unemployment at about 25%. Franklin Roosevelt became the 32nd President and subsequently introduced The New Deal. The Twenty-first amendment, ending prohibition, was passed.
Buick produced 19 models in 1933, with approximately half of them the Model 57, a 4-door sedan. Buick only made 7,450 of the Model 67s - at a price of $1,310.00.
This beauty is powered by Buick 97 HP 272.6 cubic inch straight-eight, which runs like a sewing machine and drives great. All windows are clear and functional, and all doors shut tight. The roof and tires are in very good condition. There is NO RUST. There are a few very minor paint issues. The interior is beautiful. The odometer registers 2149, and we assume that when the car was fully restored the odometer was reset to 0. This is a real special car that is easy to work on and really a lot of fun to drive.
Central Texas Classic Cars has been instrumental in making this possible. They have kept everything Top Notch, and they are a joy to work with. They have it running GREAT!!!!
