  1. I agree B Jake, having owned or cared for multiple uber low mileage Buicks of this vintage and other vintages as well, you learn what to look for and those strips are a a big one on these cars. Those wheel covers are flawless as well still with high shine, those have not seen 100K of road, they can still be nice after 100K miles but loose that brilliance
  2. But you obviously didn’t know about the red paint on the hose and vacuum advance etc. as you pointed that out As being incorrect which it is not and Usually only seen on very low mileage cars
  3. There is And why would you say that? Just because car is low mileage doesn't mean it will be pristine, I have seen cars with this low mileage needing to be hauled off to the junkyard. There is something under the hood that is an extrememely good indicator that this is original low mileage. If you look at the vacuum advance and hose to it you will see it painted red, that was seen on original 72's and is a documented oddity and has been noted in the BCA national judging. Your claim is based on nothing
  4. Hardtop convertible, now that's a new one for describing a sunroof
  5. This might sound silly, but did you try a different tape? Old tapes often seize up
  6. I drove one on a tour about 20 years ago
  7. I'm the opposite, I love the condor yellow, black and red especially on a Century = move over, I have arrived
  8. SCO typically is the prefix for a special order
  9. Also list it on the Reatta groups on Facebook, they are highly active
  10. Or it was priced to cheaply that it was snapped up quick is more likely
  11. The wheel well moldings really looks out of place on this car the way it is set up, probably a J C Whitney type place.
  12. Sounds like you must be looking for this color then? This was a rather popular color at least.
  13. It did very well Adam as it should have
  14. Those are the hubcaps, the wheel covers shown in the first one were optional and I believe in the accessory package. There was also a wire wheel cover as an option for the Special that had the crest versus the V like the big series
  15. I have heard that figure in the past as well, and I that number is crazy for a pricey 2 seater with a smaller target market
  16. Agree Murray, none of my Reatta convertibles have been stricken with the shake and rattling. I have owned quite a few other high end convertibles and many of them show far more shake. Even something as obvious as air pressure in tires can make a huge difference in cowl shake if it's off. Many people assume the Reatta convertible was just a roof chop to add some life to the line
  17. "Tone it down" - flawlessly stated
  18. The owner has had that one since 1973, It's also a BCA Senior car. Of interest, they made more 4 door hardtops than 72 Centurion conv & formal coupes combined plus
  19. Beautiful example anyone should be proud to own
