  • Excellent condition
  • Driven 94,500 miles
  • Automatic transmission
  • Exterior color: Green · Interior color: Green

PRICING REDUCED!!!! No one has looked at this beauty yet! Lots of tire kickers but no one is claiming this Classic Car!

I am helping my 83 year old Dad sell his ALL ORIGINAL "Classic 1973 Buick Electra 225" that he purchased from the original owner in 1974 with approx 8,000 miles on the car and owned it ever since!

Since he retired he has only driven this car to golf outings and special occasions.

The car only has 94,828 original miles on it. My Dad is a person that maintenance's all of his cars at the correct intervals. Everything he owns/owned/boats, cars, any gas running device he has been always maintained "Spot On"! Car is in "Mint Condition"!!!

Dual exhaust with no leaks. With a nice light rumble to it with non original mufflers. Buick's 455 ALL original engine! Automatic transmission. New brakes and new tires approx. 8,000 miles ago.

Has 6 way power seats, power steering, tilt steering, power brakes, power trunk release, power windows, and all works great. Only flaw is the air conditioner does not work. He has not had it checked out to see what the issue is. No one carries the correct freon to see if its low. Might be this easy of a fix. Very little rust is starting inside the trunk area by the hinges. Odd area. Outside is "ROCK SOLID"! Original Paint! No Bondo! Never repaired body, Never in an accident!!! Car is mint, take a drive No Problem! Get it checked out by a mechanic before purchase, No Problem!

Not hiding anything and had everything checked out when he put brakes and tires on by Tires Plus and the mechanics were impressed everything checked out solid!

The interior is absolutely a work of art and in flawless condition. To add to that, every feature, option and gauge works perfectly. Parents have decided its time to downsize and give up taking care of the lake home and is moving into a new townhouse. PLEASE SERIOUS ENQURIE'S ONLY! I live in Coon Rapids, but my Dad lives up north in Brainerd, MN in Nisswa MN. You can view the car at my Dad's house or can meet some where safe for my Dads sake. Or if really needed, he can drive it down to the cities in Anoka, Coon Rapids, Blaine area for serious enquire's only. Asking $8,600 or "Reasonable" Offer.

Looking to sell before they move into new townhouse. Has clear title in hand. I also have a video of it running if you would like to hear it run. NOTE; IF IT'S POSTED, IT'S STILL FOR SALE!!! No need to ask if its still available!

Clean car.

I'm sure there's a  good explanation why a photo shows the transmission in Park and the yellow needle on the speedo indicates 80 MPH.

I missed this. Looks like a good one. That’s a lot of green but I love it. Back when you could get colors other than tan, gray, and black for your interior. 
 

Long time friend had one back in high school. Same year I think. Silver with vinyl landau top. 455. 8mpg. Loaded with power goodies. Great memories. 
 

Even at 16 it was hard to climb out of that back seat. But that may have been because there was a cop standing there at the time. Misspent youth and all that. 
 

Somebody got a good deal on this one!
