For Sale: 1085 Buick Electra 225 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

The unrestored, original condition of this rare 1960 Buick Electra 225 Convertible elevates the car with an extra measure of beauty and character. Its current availability from MAXmotive thus offers the discriminating enthusiast an exciting opportunity. Fewer than 6800 of this model were produced, and only a small fraction survive in original condition. The top-of-the-line Wildcat 445 version of Buick's storied 401ci Nailhead V8 powers the car with vim and vigor, yielding 325 horsepower and a robust 445 lb/ft of torque. Smoothness, a long-established Buick attribute, is tuned into the Twin-Turbine Dynaflow automatic transmission. This highly-optioned example features power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seats, and a power-operated convertible top. A unique feature of the 1960 Buick is the Mirromatic Dash, which allows you to adjust the angle at which you view the instruments to increase comfort and reduce glare. The time-honored combination of Sable Black exterior paint and a red leather interior lends an element of elegant sportiness. Buick used a new type of lacquer in 1960, as explained in a label in the glove box. The formula's success is clearly seen in the remarkable condition of the paint. Of course, this car was well cared-for, and has amassed a mere 52071 miles in its 60-plus years of service. The Electra's position at the top of the Buick line is shown in such design elements as the massive curved windshield, large chrome bumpers, wide bright rocker panel moldings, and four of the reintroduced venti-ports on the fenders. Other models had just three. 1960 also brought the introduction of Buick's tri-shield logo, which still represents the brand today. The final touch are the Super Deluxe wheelcovers, which on this example are paired with made-in-USA whitewall radial tires for ride and handling commensurate with the Electra's elegant appearance. In the proud tradition of American luxury automobiles, MAXmotive is pleased to offer this stately 1960 Buick Electra 225 Convertible.
