UPDATE 3/17/17 – Howie has decided to lower his asking price to $5,100!
FROM 2/23/17 – You just never know what will pop up here on Barn Finds. It might be a prewar classic, a ’60s muscle car or even a mid ’80s Stageway 6 door Buick! Reader Howie B has decided it’s time to part ways with his Stageway Buick survivor and he thought BF was the perfect place to list it. He’s asking
$7,000 $5,100 for this oddball, which if you price it by the door, works out to less than $1,200 $850 per door! This sure seems like a lot of car for the money. If you are interested, it’s currently in Lake Elsinore, California and you can contact him using the form below.
From Howie – Bought in 1984 by Claffey/Rota Funeral home and used for 27 years and then parked for 15 years, the car has only 62k miles. I have repair invoices documenting the mileage. After purchase, the gas tank was removed and cleaned, a rebuilt carb installed and the entire cooling system was replaced. The only thing that I see is on the lower left quarter panel has some spotting in the paint. A very rare coach built car, I can’t find production #’s, but I have only seen 1 other for sale ever.
Interior Condition: Mint original with no issues.
Mechanical Condition: Car runs and drives like a new car. New Radiator, water pump, hoses, A/C compressor, Catalytic converter, front and rear shocks.
Body Condition: Totally original in excellent condition. Never hit and no rust. Panels are very straight.
What a crazy find! It’s always fun when a Stageway surfaces, they are just so odd, but it’s amazing to see a survivor in such nice condition. Unless you have a very large family or you run a limo service, I can’t see too many uses for it. I guess you’d have the most talked about car at just about any car show you took it to, which could be fun!
For a running driving car in such nice condition, the asking price seems quite reasonable. It’s a rather niche find, but I’m sure there are a few of you out there that would love to cruise around in this 6 door Buick! Special thanks to Howie for listing with us and I hope we can find a good home for this oddball. So would you drive this Armbruster/Stageway LeSabre?
