Long, powerful, and distinctly styled, this 1966 Buick LeSabre has
been given all the right investments to feel like a time capsule.
So when you want your classic motoring experience to truly
transport you to a different era, read on...
Buick seemed to be the best at embracing the era of longer, lower, and wider that defined the 1960s. And the restyled 1966 cars really showed this. The center points on both the front and rear were really extended in the sheetmetal to make these cars look distinctive. It's almost as if the designers wanted to convey the luxury of a Buick by allowing them to stretch out as far as they like. Plus, not only did the bumpers follow this unique design, but also the side trim artfully connects with these wraparound units and runs along the profile. It creates one cohesive perimeter that gives this one an overall attractiveness. You see it so clearly today thanks to great brightwork and a modern respray of the factory-correct Turquoise Mist paint. But more than just how it looks, you can tell the decades of care that has going into this sedan by the way the panels fit and all four doors still shut with authority. In fact, everything is complete, right down to the iconic portholes and factory wheel covers.
The Aqua color of the interior coordinates nicely with the exterior color. We believe most of this to be original. So when you see the condition of the bright metallic vinyl and comfortable cloth inserts on the seats, you're once again reminded of the endless care that has gone into this full-size Buick. In fact, every major piece of original trim is still in place, from the chrome on the door panels, to the Buick crest on the dash. This is classic cruising at its finest, and since you will want to share this experience with family and friends, a few nice upgrades were tastefully installed to keep everyone happy. For example, the original radio is still in place for appearance sake, but the tunes now come out of a more modern AM/FM/CD stereo. Plus, there is modern R134a air conditioning.
The bright Dante Red of Buick's own engine block is something we all love to see when the hood is open at the car shows. And this one really looks fantastic with a very clean and correct presentation, right down to the factory air topper. This is a 340 cubic-inch V8, which is the correct displacement for a '66, and it was only produced for a couple of years. So you have a powerful motor that also has a story to tell. But more than just showing off, this classic sedan was meant to be driven. That's why it has features like power steering, power brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission. There was even an electric fan added to help keep you cool in traffic.
The more you look at this full-size Buick, the more you appreciate the preservation, restoration, and upgrades that have combined to make one irresistible package. The sale even comes complete with the original protect-o-plate warranty card and owner's manual, so you know you're going to love both driving and showing this one. But you can only do that if you're first to grab this deal. Call today!!!
