1947 Buick Sedanette originally owned and restyled by Reno Garcia of Brentwood, California.[1] Reno's Buick featured a 1948 Lincoln grill, and 1949 Cadillac rear fenders, bumper and hood.


Sold to Bob Sly

In 2017 Reno's grandson told Kustomrama that the Buick was Reno's family car; "When my dad and his sister were born they sold the Buick Bob Sly of Antioch, California, to get something more family friendly. He regretted selling it. He had a few more cars but this is the one he always wanted back."[2]


Where is it Now?

The family of Reno Garcia is currently trying to track down the old custom. If you have any information on it to share, please get in touch with Kustomrama at mail@kustomrama.com.
