SELLER REMARKS

The last of the big Buick convertibles, this 1970 Buick Electra offers all the right ingredients to make it a first-rate hobby car: big horsepower, lots of options, great colors, and just two owners from new. The fact that it's also very reasonably price only puts icing on an already delicious cake.


Sold new in Dallas, Texas on April 22, 1970, this awesome Buick remained in the same family until 2011, when the original owner's widow sold it to the current owner. She obviously loved the car and over the years it has been extremely well maintained. The long, straight bodywork shows off a dramatic character line that was a Buick trademark for many years, and the look is both imposing and a bit sporting. The color is correct code 26 Stratomist Blue Iridescent, applied two years ago and showing well today. The bodywork underneath was clearly very nicely preserved and the doors fit well, the hood sits flush, and there are no signs that this car was ever rusty or abused. Plenty of chrome defined Buick's luxury models, and this convertible certainly qualifies, with a nicely integrated bumper/grille combination up front and a wide chrome bumper out back. The owners loved this car so much that a new front bumper emblem was custom made (repros don't exist) when the original was stolen.


Aside from a reupholstered front bench seat, the interior of this big Buick is completely original. The tan upholstery is a nice change from the usual white you'd find in convertibles of this vintage, and as a Buick, it's loaded up with features. Factory options include A/C, power windows, a tilt steering column, and a power front bench seat, with a few accessories like the leather steering wheel wrap and center console with cup holders just to make it a little more practical. There's a ton of stretch out room in back, making this the ultimate parade vehicle, but with a 455 under the hood, the driver gets his share of entertainment, too. The gauges cover only the basics, but everything's clustered in front of the driver so it's easy to find and use, including the factory AM/FM radio that still works like it should. The white power convertible top is simply too nice to be original, and includes a glass rear window and matching tan boot for when it's stowed. And like all great original cars, the trunk has no secrets and carries a full-sized spare with cover.


Buick's 455 cubic inch V8 was a torque factory that generates effortless performance in the big Electra. Rebuilt in 1996, it doesn't look like a show piece but originality matters and in that regard it's quite good. You can still see Dante Red paint on the engine itself and the original air cleaner with '455-4' decals clinging to its surface. The TH400 3-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt in 2011, the A/C was completely overhauled and converted to R134a in 2014, and it carries a new fuel pump, sway bar bushings, tie rod ends, rear wheel bearings, and master cylinder, so it's ready to cruise. The dual exhaust system has a mellow sound that's entirely appropriate to a big luxury cruiser like this, and the undercarriage certainly looks the part of a car that comes from a warm, dry place. New 235/75/15 whitewall radials were installed in 2013.


Documented with the original bill of sale, Protect-O-Plate, and restoration receipts, this is a fantastic full-sized convertible that needs no excuses. Big, comfortable, and surprisingly fast, it's everything you'd expect from Buick's finest. Call today!

Opel readying Adam model with SUV cues

Fri, 11 Oct 2013

The Opel Adam, the microcar of General Motors' European subsidiary, has seen its sales cool significantly since it first hit the market in the United Kingdom and Europe, but a push is reportedly under way that just might be enough to get the stylish, little car moving again.
Using the Opel Adam Rocks Concept as a template, Opel will ruggedize the Adam, so that it might compete with the growing herd of city cars that sport SUV styling, like the Volkswagen Cross Up and Fiat Panda 4x4, according to a report from Automotive News Europe. Sporting a bumped-up ride height and tougher body work, it's a dedicated soft-roader, but will freshen the Adam's lineup and, hopefully, broaden its customer appeal.
The Adam Rocks, according to IHS Automotive analyst Ian Fletcher, should also make some more coin for GM's struggling European arm. "Automakers are happy to meet demand for SUV and crossovers as the customer pays a premium," Fletcher told ANE. And although the Rocks might have been planned from the start as a production vehicle, the timing, with the Adam's sales slowdown, doesn't seem like a coincidence.

NHTSA may greatly expand GM airbag recall

Wed, 05 Jun 2013

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is pondering whether to dramatically upscale a pair of airbag recalls on General Motors vehicles. The two existing campaigns, one launched in the fall of 2012 and the other in January of this year covered just 6,845 vehicles, but the government agency is considering whether to boost the recall to around 400,000 units.
The existing recalls involve the the closely related 2012 Buick Verano (shown) and Chevrolet Cruze sedans, along with Sonic and Camaro models. The root of the problem is a shorting bar in the inflator module of the steering-wheel-mounted airbag that may contact the primary state airbag terminal, a condition that could prevent deployment in an accident. Dealer technicians have been replacing the steering wheel airbag coils to fix the issue.
According to a post on NHTSA's website, the root cause, said to be a production issue, may not have been completely isolated - particularly for the second recall, which was for the Camaro. According to Automotive News, GM says it is cooperating with the government investigation, but won't say whether or not it knows the true origin of the problem.

2014 Buick Regal priced from $29,690*

Mon, 09 Sep 2013

Buick has announced pricing for the refreshed 2014 Regal. The base model offers a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, 259-horsepower, four-cylinder engine for $30,615 (*after $925 delivery and destination fee). The standard turbo can be replaced by Buick's eAssist mild hybrid system for $32,485. The electrified powertrain delivers 36 miles per gallon, in place of the turbo's 30 mpg on the highway.
The big powertrain news for 2014 is the inclusion of an all-wheel-drive system for an extra $2,175. Marking one of the few uses of all-wheel drive on a Buick car, the new Regal AWD has an electronic, limited-slip differential and a HiPer Strut front suspension, which is the same front arrangement used on the hot, front-drive Regal GS.
Speaking of the Regal GS, it's not so hot for 2014. It sports the same 259-horsepower engine as the standard Regal, but offsets that with a wealth of standard, optional or flat-out exclusive equipment like active dampers, Brembo brakes and a Bose stereo. Prices (all including the $925 fee) start at $37,830. Like the standard car, the GS will be available with all-wheel drive for the first time, bringing it a bit more in line with its cousins across the pond - Opel Insignia OPC and Vauxhall Insignia VXR. Prices for the GS AWD start at $40,195.
