For Sale: 1973 Buick Electra in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Denver is Proud to present this 1973 Buick Electra. Buick's full-sized Electra 225 benefitted from a total redesign in 1971, with fashionable "fuselage" styling. The car utilized Buick's 455-cid, 315-hp V-8, and rode on a massive 127-inch wheelbase. The car's length grew by more than two inches from the previous year to 227.9, and weight was correspondingly heavier by 340 pounds. Prices started at $5,454 for the two-door hardtop and $5,567 for the four-door hardtop, which placed the Buick closer to Cadillac territory than ever before. A Custom trim was available on the Electra, and it added wood grain trim and upgraded upholstery. Plush Limited interiors were also available, with bench front seats.The 1972 Electra 225 outsold the 1971 model year by more than a third, to the tune of 172,000 units. The engine that year remained the same, though power ratings were now reported in net rather than gross. The result was a 225-hp V-8, with an optional 250-hp variant available. For 1973, the cars obtained 5-mph front bumper and a new grille, and sold well. The following year, the Electra received a significant facelift including new rear bumpers. Engine power dipped to 210hp. Sales for 1974 fell by nearly half due to the Arab oil embargo.Driving and riding in a Buick Electra is a treat, as the cars are comfortable, spacious, and quiet. Despite production numbers tapering off during the Electra's later years, the model is relatively abundant. Prices remain affordable, so these cars can be fun first-time classic cars.With the metallic flake and custom wheels this beauty is sure to turn heads! Don't miss out on your opportunity to own a piece of Buick history.
