This beautiful Electra is finished in red exterior with red interior and white convertible top. This car has the optional powerful 445 Wildcat V8 with 325 hp and 445 ft/lbs of torque.
The car had a full frame on restoration 11 years ago and it still shows very well. Paint has a beautiful shine and chrome is in great shape. There are a few scratches/nicks that do not detract from its beauty. The car also had the engine and transmission rebuilt at that time and runs like new. It runs fantastic and is ready for the local cruise nights or car shows. It has been garage kept. It has won several trophies at local GM and Classic car events.
The Electra starts up every time and shifts beautifully. The engine is smooth without any ticks or noises. The exhaust system is newer and is quiet. The suspension is smooth and without creaks or harshness.
The interior is in great shape and shows very well for a 56 year old car! It has no cuts in the leather. The dash is clean and shows no cracks. Leather is still soft and seat springs are firm. Even the original AM/FM radio works!
The convertible top is 1 month old and works well. The power windows all work. It does not have air conditioning, but you can add vintage air which will work even better than the factory a/c. Heater works 100%.
I have two sets of keys and the original books and Buick advertisements.
The original floormats are included.
The tires have 90% tread left and brakes are in good shape.
You can call me at 239 / 348 / 4182 or email me questions through ebay.
These cars are going up in value and I am selling mine with No Reserve, the highest bidder wins. It is between a 2 and 3 on the Hagerty condition scale.

I have been asked to confirm if this is the original color. It is indeed paint code "L" which is Tampico Red. Also, here are the best pics I could get of the underneath; I do not have access to a lift.
