1960 Buick Electra 225 Convertible for sale! Motorcar Classics is
proud to present this beautiful 1960 Buick Electra 225 convertible
featured in Tampico Red with a red and white leather interior and
white convertible top. The car benefits from a fresh complete
restoration to its original specifications with no expense spared.
All the original components were either rebuilt or replaced as
needed. The engine and transmission were professionally rebuilt.
This car was highly optioned from new including factory bucket
seats with center armrest, air conditioning, Wonderbar radio with
foot switch and power antenna, Posi-traction differential,
Guide-Matic headlight control, Twilight Sentinel, power vent
windows, full tinted glass, compass, and even the no-cost option of
body-colored wheels which look great with the Super Deluxe wheel
covers and the correct wide whitewall tires. The original owner
literally checked every box when ordering this car. Standard
equipment on all 1960 Buick Electra 225 convertibles was the 401
cubic inch 4 barrel V8 developing 325 hp, Dynaflow automatic
transmission, dual exhaust, speed alert, power windows, power seat,
power top, power steering and brakes, Super Deluxe spinner wheel
covers, and leather interior. Compared to other cars of the era,
Buick was an exceptional performer. Buick brakes were the best in
the industry, featuring oversize, aluminum finned front drums with
large lining area for record-breaking stopping performance.
Relatively fast steering ratios and stock front anti-sway bar make
for noticeably better handling response than other cars of the era.
All-coil spring suspension was an advance in luxury compared with
other makes that still used leaf springs in the rear. And if youve
never experienced a Dynaflow transmission, be prepared for the
smoothest acceleration ever it is the forerunner of todays CVTs. No
shifting through gears, just a smooth, variable pitch glide from
zero to top speed. Acceleration around town is respectable
considering this is a full-size car. But at speeds over 60 MPH,
impressive is the word open the secondaries and the car pulls
strong!All 1960 Buicks were equipped with Mirror-Magic speedometer,
which permitted adjustment of the speedometer position via a
movable mirror. Slide the knurled knob, and the speedometer view
adjusts to your eye level. For the true Buick enthusiast, this is a
rare opportunity to own a show quality, fresh example of one of the
most desirable Buick convertibles ever produced.
