1961 Buick Electra
You will stand out in a crowd in this beautiful example of a rare 1961 Buick Electra with a mirrored speedometer display. The original turquoise color is set off by the white tone roof with roughly 70% original paint and recent touch-ups performed. This interior has been completely redone in turquoise including headliner, carpet and visors, as well as the 1963 Impala bucket seats that were added and 3 trunk panels that tastefully keep the air ride pump and tank and spare tire hidden from view. The air ride controls are also hidden away in the ash trap.
This car sports an original 401 nail head engine and a rebuilt Dynaflow transmission and only 77K original miles. It's rust free and has had a full mechanical restoration including carburetor, plugs, spark plug wires, belts, all fluids, gas tank and sending unit, new dual exhaust as well as brakes and a new brake booster. This car looks, runs and drives like a million bucks. The entire undercarriage has been cleaned, detailed and painted along with the engine bay and trunk. The chrome, stainless and bright work are also very, very nice. All in all this is a very nice driving car with no squeaks, rattles, window whistles or major issues. It's a super clean car ready to hit the road and cruise.
This car is located and being represented for a collector in the Seattle, Washington area.
Though not quite a long as its big brother, the Buick Electra stretched out 221.2 inches for the 1960 model year.
