For Sale: 1964 Buick Electra in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

Long, powerful, and distinctly styled, this 1964 Buick Electra 225 has the right mix of preservation and investments to be an awesome vintage cruiser. That means the numbers-matching 401ci V8, a cool blue style, and a loaded A/C interior.

The 1960s felt like they belonged to Buick, and a car like this is the reason why. There's just something about how the sharply creased fenders beautifully incorporate the bright chrome bumpers in the design to give this an authoritative presence. Plus, the side trim artfully connects with these wraparound bumpers and runs along the profile (including the fender skirts) to create an almost seamless perimeter. You couldn't see that today if there had not been decades of care that has gone into this hardtop sedan. This level of respect is seen in the details, like the iconic fender portholes, full badging, factory wheel covers, and whitewall tires. And the blue paint is a more recent application, but its deep tone and shine do a terrific job of highlighting this classic's premium feeling.

The interior has a very stock and detailed style. So you'll notice how everything looks vintage, right down to the tissue box under the dash. Even when the seats were recovered later in life, they gave them a classic and intricate pattern. You may notice other fundamentals that could use updating if you're looking for perfection (and the value price allows you to budget for updating.) But first, take a moment to see what this Electra is really all about. This likes to be a cool cruiser. That means you want plenty of people to be comfortable riding in this Buick, and it also means you don't want to make them take off their shoes every time before entering. And this one has a particularly cool set of features to be a proper ice cream run car. You can roll down all the windows on the pillarless hardtop without leaving the driver's seat thanks to power windows. And cold-blowing air conditioning means everyone stays cool even on a summer afternoon.

Under the hood, you'll find the numbers-matching Wildcat 445 V8 - named after its torque rating. An interesting marketing approach, these engines actually displace 401 cubic inches and were topped by a four-barrel carburetor. Regardless of the name, this powerplant advertised an impressive 325 horsepower. The Wildcat is hooked up to a dual exhaust system, but unlike the brutish muscle cars, this is a sophisticated animal. So the low-end rumble will provide you with personal pride without setting off neighborhood car alarms. If you really want to get attention with this monster motor, then just pop the hood and everyone at the car shows will flock to your exceptionally original engine bay. This Buick is truly set up for cruising with power steering, power brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission.

The sale comes complete with an impressive paperwork file that includes the dealer invoice, maintenance records, and the owner's manual. This is a large and powerful cruiser that has a true presence wherever it goes (and the right features enjoy the drive everywhere.) So when a great classic like this is also so affordable, you know you have to hurry to grab this opportunity. Call today!!!
