Description for Buick LeSabre 1961

This Buick waspurchased new in 1961 at Mel Brown Buick in Waynesboro, Pa. by its original owner Mr. M. Florence. The car, when new, was originally silver until the mid-70's when Mr. Florence had it painted to its present yellow. Mr. Florence owned the car until his passing in the mid-2000's. I was turned onto the car by an old friend, who knew the family and I purchased it in 2009. The car has only had 2 owners. I like the nostalgia you feel in the car. I like itsimperfections, aged paint, and original AM radio. Its notperfect, it had tiny rust spots at the rear wheel wells, that have not changed since I have had it. The car has beengaragekept and wellmaintainedits entire life. The factory carpet, seats and overall interior is in excellent shape, but there is a minor tear in the drivers seat back, I have patched. This car was never meant to do burn-outs or a 10 second quarter mile but it does what was built for, turn heads and cruise all day long. It isreliable and dependable. It drives as smooth in a cruise downtown or at 70mph on the interstate. Since I have had it, I have made keeping it reliable a priority. There have beendiligentoil changes, new hoses, lines and attention paid to keeping this car turn key and road ready. Power steering, power brakes, no A/C, new aluminum heater core, hubcaps are '62, original '61 hubcaps come with, radial tires w/ less than 5,000 miles.
At 56 years old and with no restoration there are a few obvious cosmetic flaws. The speedometer does not work, and I have been trying to think of any other issues and cannot come up with anything.
My favorite thing about this car, is with all the windows down, at 65 mph down the highway, the breeze is great and you can have a conversation with your passenger without yelling. :-)
Cash ispreferred. Any checks, bank, cashier's or otherwise will need to clear and be approved by my bank and attorney before the car and its title leave mypossession.
