Here's a "rust free" 1951 Flxible-Buick Premier Model FB21-751 end-loading funeral car for sale. Looks solid and worthy of rescue and restoration. Of the 375 professional cars Flxible sold and built in 1951, most were combinations (212) and only 81 were Premier end-load funeral coaches like this. Hope some PCS member scoops this one up.

a pretty straight looking old body . the interior will run a man around 5 grand
but it looks from the pictures be be a simple repaint and put back on the hardware.

Just the Mohair alone would set you back $5000, before anyone even touched it!

some of us like original but when know when it's out of line. a man could do that in a velor and the average guy could not tell the difference. but were it would be fun to do a flexable I want to get my poncho finished.

The car has sold - for well below the asking price. Tom McPherson contacted the seller and got the Flxible data plate information. This revealed that this car was:

Model: FB21-751 = Premier Series end-loading funeral coach ( Series 70 Buick Roadmaster chassis)
Body #: 17049 (Flxible's body number)
Frame #: 16034600
Motor#: 625530737
Date of delivery: August 16, 1951
Delivered to: Arthur J. Sullivan & Company - San Francisco, California

From what I am told, the car is going to a private buyer that resides in Meridian, Idaho.
