Seller's Description:

  • The Electra 225 was the flagship model for 1959. If you wanted the best Buick this was it. 
  •  This beauty had been sitting for 20+ years and all mechanical has been gone through.
  • This is a turnkey car and starts right up. Runs and drives very smooth with the floaty feel you would expect and no overheating. All factory with no modifications. Fender skirts are after market and look beautiful with the chrome to continue the chrome quarter panel trim. Hubcaps are original. Front rocker stainless trim with emblems are in excellent condition. Comes with Wonder bar radio option
  • Power windows, seats, brakes work well. Windshield wiper motor has been reconditioned and it works well. All fluids have been refreshed. New valve cover gaskets and correct paint for covers. Fresh tires. 
  • The car is very rust free solid without the typical rust in quarters or rockers that you see even from the best condition cars. Interior is original and looks very presentable for its age.
  • Doors and hood open and close without effort. Trunk was scrubbed completely and painted with correct factory red primer
  • Exhaust is original and has leaks. Passenger side fender has damage that does not effect drivability. Weather stripping could be replaced. Passenger fender trim is missing.
  • A lot of of work has been done to make this car run and drive well and look beautiful. We will continue to work on it but we feel its time to pass it on to its next caretaker.
  • Clean original title

A striking car in Sable Black.  The fact that the car is rust-free and drivable makes this one a solid starting point for someone who wants to begin enjoying the car even as it is improved over time.

 

While the seats appear to have been sewn with the correct pattern, the fabric is not original.  For someone seeking a fully authentic example, these would need to be re-upholstered during the future.
