This is one of 13,588 Buick LeSabre convertibles built in 1960. All of the LeSabre convertibles were built in Flint, MI which is indicated in the VIN and on the body tag. The 1960 LeSabre received a major facelift, the new body design sharing only the roof and trunk lid with the 1959 model. The new Buick now sported a concave grille and horizontal headlights centered by Buick’s, then new, tri-shield logo which is still used today. Inside a revised instrument panel features a Mirromatic speedometer for which the lens could be adjusted to better visibility to suit the driver. A new two-spoke steering wheel with horn bars was introduced as well. This stunning Buick is completely original other than a mild re-paint and re-chromed bumpers. The car sits on BF Goodrich Silverstone whitewall bias-ply tires. This 1960 LeSabre convertible was purchased by Dr. Leonard Phillips from Pinsky Motor Sales – Buick – Pontiac – GMC of Arlington, Minnesota on February 30th 1960. Dr. Phillips was a baby doctor who made home deliveries, and had the spotlight added to assist him in reading home addresses at night. Unfortunately, Dr. Phillips passed away at a young age and the LeSabre was put away into storage. In the early 2000s, his niece Lucy Phillips, got the car out of storage and had it serviced/checked over. Lucy enjoyed going to car shows and winning trophies. At this point the car was 100% original including paint, which was fading and chipping and it had only 39,000 miles on the odometer. The car was sold and the new owner had the doors, hood and trunk removed from the car and it was carefully repainted. Also at this time the bumpers were removed and re-chromed. To this day the car has the original paint in the door jams to verify the color is the same and near-perfect original interior. It currently has 39,900 miles, original purchase receipts and other paperwork that will be included.
