Hank Deglman's 1960 Buick Electra Convertible


Recommended Posts

FYI, Hank Deglman's 60 Electra convertible is being offered for sale by Hyman Ltd. of St.Louis. The asking price is $58,500. Extensive high-resolution pictures are on the Hyman website.

The excellent underhood detailing done by Adam Martin has really paid off! The car looks beautiful!

For those that didn't know it, Adam did a great job of documenting his work on the project in the "Me and My Buicks" section of this forum.

I just took a look at the 58. I'm curious, is the black 'highlight' paint in the rocket like side trim correct? I don't recall ever seeing it so pronounced in contrast to the silver metal insert.

Was it like that originally ? I'm thinking it could be , to match the stripped rear bumper filler sheets.

The 60 and the 58 are beautiful cars.

All his Buicks are on there - 56, 58, 60, and the 62

I guess they found the right guy in town to sell the cars. Hyman usually gets a good penny for the cars he sells....mostly catering to people who have nothing better to do with their money than to buy a "classic car."

Greg, thanks for the kudos on the work I did with the car. It hurts to see them all for sale like that. I was offered first dibs on any of the cars, but I cannot afford what the family was wanting for them. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

I hope they go to a good home.

Adam, I wish I could be one of those people who have nothing better to do with my money!

Hank's Buicks are spectacular, and here's the link to the Buicks currently offered by Hyman. While not Hank's cars, I must say that the '50 Special Jetback and '57 Roadmaster convertible are mighty appealing as well.

Adam,

I was expecting it there despite Hank's passing. I guess that's selfish on my part but it's kind of like your parents telling you about and showing you about Christmas for two months then nothing happens on the 25th.

AT LEAST you got up close and personal with the car for quite awhile. I've seen the 62 Electra in Plano but not sure about the others.

I think the family did the right thing by letting Hyman get the cars. I would've had a problem if they had shown up at any other dealer in town.

We may never know the actual transaction price, but man-oh-man, the ASKING prices on these babies have sky-rocketed recently! <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />

Hyman always brings a tent-full of cars to the Kruse Labor Day auction in Auburn. I called to see if the 60 was coming, but they wouldn't commit. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> I will be there and hope to see it.

It will be interesting to see what they get and how quick it sells. Remember these are the same guys that wanted $62,500 for the 1960 Invicta convertible that was at Hershey last fall. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> Not sure what it brought, but it seems to be gone now!

Greg,

Unfortunetly, it's in their best interest never to reveal the actual selling price but I have to believe it's 70 to 80 percent of asking price. That's just a hunch I have no proof but it requires a pre-qualified buyer with deep pockets and money always talks.
