Scale Models: 1968 Buick Electra 225 / 1970 Buick LeSabre

Recommended Posts

I've neglected to add to this forum during the recent past, but have loved seeing our members' great collections here!

 

I am adding some photos today of 1/18-scale resin replicas of the '68 Electra 225 and '70 LeSabre.  Both models are currently offered by BoS, and both are, in my opinion, commendable efforts.  And a few shots also include the diecast metal '64 Riviera model from Highway 61.

 

These models are significant because the subject matter is excellent.  I maintain that no other manufacturer was building large cars during the late-1960's that matched Buick for style.  I love the sculpted forms and long, graceful lines of these Buicks, and I hope that the images here remind you just how beautiful these Buicks were.  Among my great childhood memories are the long highway trips in my parents' '65 Wildcat, when the Interstates were filled with glorious, powerful Buicks like these.
