    VERY nice! I hope my '64 Electra convertible looks that good when I am done :-)
    I am currently restoring a 1964 Buick Electra convertible with a 425 dual quad engine and bucket seats.
    My dad bought it new. http://rides.webshots.com/album/578933782esLUTV
    My other project car is a 1965 Shelby Cobra and as we all know, our projects are never done.;)

    Sweet car!. Looks like you did a great job on the restoration. Did you take before and after pics that you can share. Progress pics keep half of us motivated, and cause the other half to drink to excess. Curious about the wide whitewalls. Shouldn't this year have a thin single whitewall stripe?

    Yes, nice car. I was born in 1964. I have purchased and owned all 3 of the 1964 Buick full size convertibles and to be honest, I enjoyed my LeSabre convertible the most. I like your dark color. Is the motor the 300 with aluminum heads and intake?

    Hi John and thanks! Unfortunately, there were not many pictures at all. This car really took off after my dad retired, and I was still in school so we did not document near as much as we wanted to. And about the tires, my dad just picked out the ones he liked. They are from Coker. We did not know enough about those years and how it was reflected in the tires. How were the tires striped in 1964?

    Bryan, thanks for compliments! My dad loves his LeSabre, drives it everywhere to car shows. Sun, rain... whatever. The engine is the 300ci and I am almost positive it has aluminium heads and intake. I will definitely check the next time I am at the shop. Maybe grab some pictures, too!

    Awesome car. I grew up in a 1964 Wildcat. Your photo brings back good memories.
