1971 LeSabre 23k miles


Recommended Posts

Adam, you're too modest!  I didn't realize it was

your car until I saw the Ebay user-name matched

your forum user-name.  I thought this nice example

was simply one that you were pointing out.


It's safe to say that this 1971 LeSabre 4-door hardtop,

in such nice condition, is 100 times scarcer than the

commonly seen 1975 LeSabre convertibles.  The former

have gradually disappeared, while the convertibles were

cherished and saved.


I hope it goes to a caring home.  Here are a few pictures

copied for everyone's reference:

This is what families who wanted something a notch above their Ford & Chevy neighbors rode around in.  ;)

Even though it's not heavily optioned, this is well above the "notch" above their Ford & Chevy's, they still had to bump up through Pontiac & Olds in the GM hierarchy before getting to Buick.  Those Chevy and Ford buyers in general (certainly there were exceptions) lived in a totally different part of town or better street

I left the door open for a more heavily optioned Pontiac or Olds.  That said, even though no power windows, A/C was not what I consider to be a common option in a car like this back then (though more likely in a Buick for sure).  This car reminds me of the '70 Catalina our family had, but with vinyl upholstery and no A/C...

It's actually very rare to find a 71 LeSabre without AC.  Even the lightly optioned ones like this one.  My first car was one that was similarly optioned.  It also had AC.


And I will tell you that these 71+ big Buicks had WHOPPER AC systems.  My first LeSabre, the 72 Riv I recently sold, and this car all blow absolute ice cubes.  And the blowers themselves will peel your skin off, too.  Better AC systems than any modern car I've been in.

I admired your car.  Did it go to a good home--

a collector who will cherish and preserve it?


It would be a shame if someone didn't see its

value and wanted to make it a "daily driver"

or even put it in a demolition derby.  Under-appreciated

cars are rarer than the convertibles by far!

How did you manage to keep the cloth interior

so clean, Adam?  That cloth, so light in color,

would show the slightest dirt.  If you have a 

cleaning product to recommend, we can learn.


In my 1957 Buick's black-and-white interior, for

example, the black is cloth, and the white is

easily washable vinyl.

I didn't have to do anything to this interior except vacuum the carpet and scrub the floor mats, thankfully!  It would scare me to even get a drop of water on cloth like this because it stains so easily.  So when I was moving or driving the car, I would either have clean clothes on, or a clean towel to sit on.
