Hello. I am in Pomona NY. I cam helping a friend sell off a collection of parts that was in a barn with 32 cars. Many of the cars were Buick's so there is a large amount of quality Buick part's. The starter has been on a shelf or about 30 years, looks rebuilt maybe NOS, and I will test it tomorrow. Only looked at it quick today but I did make sure there were no cracks any where on it. I will let you know after I test it as to what its condition is (NOS, rebuilt, core). Dean

Hello. I bench tested the started and it runs as it should so it should work fine in your Buick. I don't have a Buick to test it under load so I will sell it as is as a core for $175.00 plus shipping. Dean
