Description
 
Here is an opportunity to own a truly unbelievable survivor. The Electra was downsized in 1961, but still retaining the same large V8 it became a high performance car. The '62 was slightly larger, but still retained the same performance edge. The Electra 225 was based on the C body GM platform shared with the Cadillac DeVille and the Olds Ninety Eight. The C bodies were more substantial than the smaller B bodies. You can sense this in the solid thump of the doors closing, the almost total lack of rattles (in a 52 year old car) and the boulevard ride. This car was originally purchased from Vandergriff Motors in Fort Worth, Texas and has no rust out anywhere. It even sports its original Arctic White paint with mostly original interior. The front seat was reupholstered in the original fabric (Shantung) before I bought the car. There is a leftover roll of fabric that goes with the car. There should be enough to redo the back seat cushion if desired. The car leaks nothing. The front suspension is tight and was recently rebuilt. The factory AC was overhauled 2 years ago and was charged with R12, so it still blows cold. I recently replaced the motor mounts and the transmission mount. The brakes have been overhauled with new wheel cylinders and lines. The wiper motor was rebuilt approximately 1 year ago. The brake booster was rebuilt prior to my purchase of the car 2 years ago. The 401 is strong with high torque. The Turbine Drive transmission is a smooth beauty. Even the Sonomatic AM radio still works and has front and rear speakers. The power seat, cigar lighter and the speed sentinel do not work. This car is offered with no warranties implied or otherwise. Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. Please call Eric at 817-576-4461 with any questions.
