Sketched out by famed designer Richard Zocchi, the Buick Invicta Hardtop Coupe “Peaches and Cream” from 1959 is a veritable work of art, no doubt about it. It represents a toned down, simplified version of the original Buick Invicta, at least as far as its exterior is concerned. Inside, the car kept its original steering column, glove box and instrument panel, while its seats, dashboard and door panels flaunt exquisite “peaches and cream” leather upholstery.
Under the hood, we find a Nailhead V8 engine that’s good for no less than 325 horsepower – a respectable figure considering the vehicle’s age. This special Invicta also boasts a plethora of handling improvements as well as a lowered suspension that allows it to perform better in corners. The car will be put under the hammer in November by RM Auctions in Dallas, Texas, and it will make one fortunate and rich collector very happy. The reserve for this Richard Zocchi masterpiece is between $40,000 and $60,000, which is quite affordable considering the fact that we’re talking about a unique and very well preserved classic vehicle.
