1975 Buick Lesabre Custom Convertible "survivor" on 2040-cars

Year:1975 Mileage:31423
Location:

Pittsford, New York, United States

Pittsford, New York, United States

 

Up for auction a Buick Lesabre Convertible 455ci "Survivor". Last year of the convertible ! Only about 5300 were made. (even less with a 455ci.engine)  I purchased it in 2012 from an estate where it had been sitting untouched since 1984 in a metal building on the property. It was like opening a time capsule with even the original Firestone 721 Radial spare in the trunk unused! The 31,275 miles are documented, as  the previous owner kept all the paperwork (included with sale). The vehicle was sold new in Georgia in early 1975 and then found its way to a Buick dealer in Warsaw NY where the previous owner purchased it in March of 1976. The car had 14,000 miles on it at the time. The original window sticker is also included. The interior is original. It has the rare "Parade Boot" option. The paint appears to have some touch-up work on it but there was no major repaint.

The following work was done: All fluids were flushed and replaced, all hoses and belts replaced. Mew Water Pump. New brake master cylinder and booster, new  Delco spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor. Air conditioning converted to R134A and blows ice cold, undercarriage which was originally undercoated in 1975 was redone by Ziebart (if you are familiar with their work the car was done twice since they missed some spots the first time!), new Cooper Trendsetter 235.75R.15 tires. Interior  was dismantled and the seats, foam, coverings and the rest of the car interior were professionally disinfected, ozoned and deodorized due to some critter visits during the long storage. Carpets and underlayment are new.  Factory AM/FM 8 Track Stereo works. It has a new convertible top and glass rear window.  It is registered and passes New York State Inspection.

And for the Buick Purests in the crowd, the engine is the correct color from doing research and examination of the engine parts. It is not a Pontiac color and is not suppose to be Buick red. The color is a 2 year color called Strato Blue Metallic which Buick used to identify their engines. It is available only from OEM Industries and the remaining unused can will be included. The air cleaner sticker is also correct and there are no other stickers to be installed on it.

The body has gloss to it and was polished as well as the chrome. The body has 38 years of chips, dings, and scratches and the chrome has some sun bleaching. It is not perfect! All body panels, frame, floors and trunk are solid and have no rust issues. The trim is in very good shape. The factory wheels have a little rust on them but do polish. Nothing is missing from the car. It is truly a survivor! You can drive it home safely and with confidence.

Please message me through eBay if you have any questions or need additional information. The reserve price is reasonable, realistic and inline (not outrageous) with NADA book value for a car of its year, condition and category. A $700.00 deposit is due within 24 hours after the auction through PayPal. The balance to be paid by cash or Wire Transfer from a U.S. Bank. The vehicle will not be released until funds are verified. Shipping is the buyer's responsibility but I will assist in any way I can. Zero feedback bidders need to contact me first or their bid will be removed.

Thanks and Happy Bidding!

Buick Verano to go turbo-only for 2014?

Sat, 22 Dec 2012

If VIN tags recently posted online prove accurate, the 2014 Buick Verano may be getting a new base engine. Presently the Verano makes use of GM's 2.4-liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine in non-turbo trim; 2014 documentation appears to indicate that GM's entry-level luxury compact will instead feature a 1.6-liter turbocharged mill.
If this is the same engine seen in Europe, GM Inside News suggests it may offer 192 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque - useful improvements over the larger naturally aspirated mill's 180 hp and 171 lb-ft. More importantly, the downsized engine would likely improve on the Verano's current fuel mileage estimates of 21 city and 31 highway.
We like the Verano in both of its current iterations, but the 1.6 turbo engine sounds like a worthwhile upgrade if this reports turns out to be true. Plus, if more performance is your bag, baby, there's always the Verano's optional 2.0 turbo engine with an impressive 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft from just 2.0 liters of displacement.

Buick Envision to go on sale in third quarter of 2015

Mon, 06 Oct 2014

Following an earlier concept and successive teasers, Buick revealed the new Envision crossover a little over a month ago. The thing is, it was launched in China, for China. The question, then, is whether it will make the jump to the North American market. And the answer is: quite possibly.
According to division sales chief Duncan Aldred in speaking to Edmunds, Buick is looking into the prospect of bringing the Envision to the US: "We can't confirm anything, but clearly it is a very nicely designed and executed product that is very much a Buick," said Aldred.
If and when the compact crossover would appear in US showrooms, it would slot in between the smaller Encore and the larger Enclave. It would likely be offered in front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and mild hybrid configurations. Sources expect it to arrive in the third quarter of 2015 as a competitor to the likes of the Mercedes GLA, Lexus NX and Lincoln MKC.

Opel Insignia OPC getting facelift. Will the Buick Regal GS see it, too?

Tue, 07 Aug 2012

We've seen spy shots of the base Opel Insignia wearing facelifted front and rear ends, and now it appears that the more potent OPC version will be benefitting from a nip/tuck, as well.
The front bumper has been redesigned, incorporating new air intakes - toned-down versions of the model's signature fangs - as well as a new grille. Out back, there will be minimal changes to the overall fascia, most likely stuff like slightly redesigned taillamps, and inside, these spy shots show a larger navigation/infotainment screen sitting atop the center console.
This is all well and good for the Insignia, but we're wondering how these changes will impact North America's Buick Regal GS. No, it may not share the same powertrain punch as the Euro-spec OPC, but visually, the cars are nearly identical. When questioned about possible changes for the GS, a Buick spokesperson told us that the automaker "can't comment" on any changes at this point. Even so, we wouldn't be surprised if some small changes come our way in the next year or so.
