For Sale: 1990 Buick Reatta in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1990 Buick Reatta Convertible

The Buick Reatta was originally penned as a two-seat sports car for Buick. After much contemplation and focus on the brand's buyers, it was decided to come out with an older luxury minded buyer's car, with front wheel drive, a 2-door coupe, comfortable interior and soft ride. Today the Reatta stands out for its "futuristic" (of the time) styling and driver interface. It was one of the least expensive handmade modern cars produced at the Lansing Craft Center, with each car including a "craftsman's log" of its builders.

For consignment, from a passionate about Reattas consigner, this well cared for, 43,860 mile example is all original and has been slightly worked to get all the known Reatta bugs out, and is now like showroom new, and with only 2,132 convertibles built in '90...somewhat rare. This car is also equipped with the 2 options available for this year, a CD player, and a 16, yes count 'em... 16, way driver's power seat. Lots of conveniences, a sporty look, and a comfortable ride are just a few of it's many assets. And if the looks and amenities aren't enough, then let me introduce you to the laundry list of all the original paperwork, factory service manuals, owner's manual set (complete with the pen, flashlight and tire pressure gauge. Still salivating for more? How about this fine example having a Buick Club of America Gold Senior award as well as a AACA Senior Award? Read on and prepare to fall in love with this hidden gem of GM styling.

Bathed in its original Flame Red paint, it is holding up very nicely and with no rust flaws or issues to note. A low mileage car helps a bit too, and this one is just fab! Hidden halogen headlights with rebuilt motors and gears, and a clean all working tan canvas convertible top this aerodynamic 2-seater can be a pleasure to drive. A gold accent pinstripe, and some 3-dimensional moldings just below the belt line with a chrome thin topper both race around this rounded car to create some highlight on the red. 15-inch aluminum wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped in like new rubber. One of the many highlights we found in our consignor's notes is the rebuilding of the power antenna assembly.

Saddle leather buckets are nice and comfortable and sit in a very clean and well-preserved interior. Plenty of conveniences surround these seats including the actual driver's seat with 16-way adjustable power controls. Other features are a keyless entry, power windows, power steering, power door locks, cruise control, tilt steering and a rear window defogger. Even an AM/FM/Cassette and CD player is installed. The dash, center console, and door panels are all original equipment and are all like they just left the showroom. Speaking of the dash, it sports nifty vacuum-fluorescent gauge displays and a blue LCD mileage readout. Tan carpeting covers the floors, and a built-in tonneau cover automatically covers the downed top and our consignor will include a cockpit cover for those days when precipitation is in the forecast but you wanna stay topless. A shout out to the trunk, which is also well preserved, very clean and has room for 2 golf bags.

Under the hood is a 3.8 liter V6 which is horizontally opposed, and is fed fossils with EFI. A 4T60 4-speed automatic transmission is on back and this drivetrain is certainly all original. Also, in our consignor's notes we see that the ignition module and coil packs have been replaced, the cooling system was flushed and filled, the AC was converted to R134A, an oil change was performed approximately 100 miles ago and a new battery was recently installed.

All clean and a mix of factory red paint with some black paint blown over top, however no rust, surface or otherwise. It is equipped with grand touring suspension, which is independent coil springs upfront, and independent with transverse leaf suspension on back. A recent 4-wheel alignment was performed to help keep the like new treaded tires wearing evenly. Power disc brakes are all around and along with a new brake control relay, the system has been flushed. The exhaust appears to be original and in good condition.

A quick starter, and a smooth ride, (one would expect a sports car ride, but not this car...all luxury ride), good handling and bias free panic braking. All functions were working well thanks to our consignors tedious upkeep and maintenance.

An overabundance of documentation, and swag that came with this original car, (car dealers would promise and include anything save for a toaster to sell cars in the early 90's!), along with a car cover, the cockpit tonneau, a dash cover and 2 sets of Reatta floor mats. Plenty of convenience options, and a convertible top. Lots of reworked issues that were typical of Reattas are now rectified, and it shows nearly as showroom quality. A fairly collectible with a 4 year run, major award wins and no rust. Comfort never looked so sporty. Sportiness never was so comfortable, but hey! It's a Buick.
