custom 83 regal SBC

Mr T type

Member
For sale is my 1983 Buick Regal Limited with all the characteristics of a T Type and none of the complications of the Turbo v6. This car was a standard v6 car that I converted to a V8 install with a SBC 350 and TH 350 out of a 77 malibu. The engine and transmission have both been completely rebuilt and come with receipts. The car says around 55,000 on the speedo but Im sure it has rolled over and I have only put 5,000 mile on this car since the build. My dream car has always been a T Type but I could never afford one so I built the closest thing I could to one by using the best of two other parts cars plus this one giving it all the best features. Now I have been able to achieve what I thought was impossible, I bought my 1987 Turbo T that I always wanted so I have to sell this Regal and make room for my new car. I took my time and really paid attention to the little things not worrying about resale and if I could get my money back mainly because I never planned to get rid of it, now it is clear that I will have to sell this car far below what I have invested but my loss is your gain. This car needs very little to make it complete and all the hard and expensive work is done. This is a desert car so rust is not an issue so you can buy this car knowing it is solid. Here is a list off the top of my head of the things and parts that I have installed. price drop 10,000

Sweet Regal! Will you tell me about the center console please?
It is a custom console that I built on top of the factory base out of wood then had upholstered with the car. Think there is a video on you tube with it uncovered. Go to my eBay listing for this car and follow the links at bottom of the page. I have been thinking about building more of these and selling them now that I have a shop and no longer need to use my past neighbors wood tools. Seems to be a popular piece
 
That console is a sweet piece
- would like to see some better pictures of it but in the mean time I'll try to find the youtube video.

Very tasteful car, I definitely think you should start producing the console. Be a big hit especially if you add cup holder and USB or power plug that can be wired.
