Pioneer Pawn is Selling Their 1931 Buick

Pioneer Pawn has decided to sell that bright red, 1931 Buick parade car, that’s sitting in their showroom.

It took several people, four wheel dollies, removal of one set of doors and the relocation of the display cases to get the beast in there and now the owners are talking about selling it.

I guess it didn’t draw the crowds they expected. –I just hope they don’t ask me to help.

Being a parade car, it’s allowed to have some issues:

You can see the aftermarket radiator frame, isn’t a really good fit.

And this is the jury-rigged rumble seat hinge.

An interesting thing is that all production years from 1931 through 1953 came with an eight cylinder overhead valve engine.

You can see from the strip they left along the hood hinge that it was originally green.
Almost the Leland green the British used to like so well.

I don’t know how bad they want to sell it. –I asked how much they were asking and they told me they were “taking offers.”
