Ask a Hemmings Editor – What constitutes a survivor? – Daniel Strohl @Hemmings

Recently, Howard Shaw bought himself a 1948 Buick Roadmaster convertible that he discovered through Hemmings. Congrats, Howard! He plans to pick it up in the near future, so, just like many of us do when we’ve bought an old car, his thoughts are occupied with what he can do with it once he takes possession of it. Howard writes:

The car has never had any bodywork done, and is 100-percent original, including paint, carpets, and running gear. The top was replaced many years ago, and the engine and transmission were overhauled at some time as well. Tires are now radials and are wide whitewalls of vintage wide whites.

My question, after having the top and tires replaced with new, and the engine and transmission rebuilt to factory specs, would you consider the car to be a survivor? I expect to show this car as an original survivor, am I right or wrong?”
