  1. Reatta Enthusiast needing to make room for a family. I was gifted my 1990 silver Reatta coupe from my grandfather, and have put considerable time and energy into reconditioning it to its original glory. I love this car, and enjoy the time I have spent working on it. Unfortunately, with a toddler and another on the way, I’m realizing how impractical it is to keep a 2 seater in my garage. I wish I didn’t have to part with my Reatta, but I need to make room (both physically and financially) for a more practical family car. I hope that my Reatta will go to someone who enjoys this unique vehicle as much as I do. (Additional images below) In the year and a half since I’ve owned my Reatta, I have completed the following work. The engine and interior work was sourced out to trusted vendors, while the smaller fixes I took on myself. Full Engine tune up (all new belts, hoses, wear parts) Suspension tightened / tune up Brake system flush Transmission Flush AC Converted to R134 and leaky compressor replaced Replaced headliner Re-stuffed both seats with new padding (kept original leather everywhere) Replaced front and rear paper cone speakers with fabric cone set (matched size and impedance) Replaced headlight lift arms & bushings (Thanks Barney Eaton!)

  3. I have two Reattas for sale. I must clear out the yard for the Insurance Company. The master brakes was taken off the firewall of the BLUE Reatta and a few other parts. I am currently driving a WHITE Reatta but have issues with the frame. My mechanic does NOT have time to return the brake system back onto the BLUE vehicle so I have 2 "sick puppies". For someone who can do their own mechanical work you can end up with a great drive able vehicle. It just takes some time and labor of which I do not have. I am not mechanically inclined. I'm asking $1500 for BOTH (or best offer). I just need them out of here... SOON !!! Thanks Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. ~ Lee
  4. I have a 1990 buick reatta for sale, its a wonderful car i just cant afford to fix it at this point. The engine and trans is in perfect running condition the issue is with the abs system. I drove the car the other day and start the car daily, the brakes work a very little not enough for me. The car was taking to the shop for a brake change which the mechanic did change, jus for him to tell me he think its the abs system, theres also a new battery. The car is a wonderful car and would be a wonderful daily driver or if u already own a reatta a excellent parts car. The only issues with the car is there is a little rust along the rear tire on the drivers side, one head light sometimes has issues coming up the othe has issues going down and the dash goes out sometimes (but that has been a issue for the reatta since it rolled off the line) and a crack in the windshield. I want $800 for it but am willing to negotiate. IF interested call Dee at (734)497-2124 pics on profile<!-- START CLTAGS -->
