                                                              1976 BUICK LESABRE 4 DOOR CUSTOM

Most everyone that loves old cars has that fantasy of finding that nice lady or gentleman that has that wonderful older classic car hidden away in  the garage or storage & you are able to locate the gem & bring it out into the light of day & find that it has been so well taken care of that almost everything is still working & after some minor maintenance, it starts, runs drives, & stops very nice. I do believe we have found a 38 year old Auto in that realm. This is a wonderful classic from the days when cars were Big with Big Motors & would cruise down the highway like you were sitting in your living room. This Buick LeSabre is in unbelievable shape for a Garage Find. Someone really took care of this car. From the paperwork in the car, it looks to have been driven around 1600 miles in the last 22 years. The last service date & mileage is on the Amoco Service Station slip in the holder on the dashboard. As we  try each option on this car it is unbelievable that everything still works. I might have missed something but everything we could find worked. Things like Cold Air, Am/Fm Stereo Radio w/Power Antenna, Cruise Control Light, Power Windows, turn signals, Hi/Lo Heaqd Light Beams, Rear Window Defroster, Windshield Wipers w/Mist Button, Power Seat, Adjustable Speed Warning Buzzer, Power Trunk Release, & believe it or not, the silly CLOCK STILL WORKS! It was getting downright crazy trying to find something that did not work on this car, finally after checking everything we could think of, including all the lights, one of our neighbors called out when we were backing the car out of the driveway & informed us that one of the back up lights was out. Whew! Finally something that was not working.

          Car condition w/#1 being perfect Show Car, & #6 being good just for parts car,  This car would be a solid 3. Interior would be a 2, paint is a 4, engine & drive train is a solid 3. Drives like a number 2 car. Should be pretty easy to get to local car show condition & is already a Wonderful Daily Driver.

     I don't want anyone to think this LeSabre is a  perfect show car, because it is not, there are parking dings, some small paint chips, &  the paint is old but still looks good, could at least use a good buff & wax to bring it out. The right front fender has a scratch about the size of a basketball on it. Should be a easy fix for any local body shop. The chrome & trim work is very good for this age car,  maybe some polish on the bright work would really make it POP!  The paint is good but tired. We just washed the car & did not wax or buff the car to get more accurate condition pictures. If the car was buffed & waxed with a few touch ups, it should look absolutely great. We could have done more but we wanted to be able to offer the car at an affordable value & also let the new owner have a few things to do to get the best look out of the car. Anyone would have a real hard time finding a 1976 model car with these features that still work & in this kind of condition. The mileage on the odometer reads 34,608, & was stated to us as being original, which might be hard to believe until you see the condition of the interior & drive this car. Then it is not that hard to believe at all. Of Course, we cannot Guarantee the mileage, but believe most anyone will be comfortable with it when they see the condition & drive this car. Our family bought a new 1971 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser back when I was a teenager, this wonderful Buick drives just like that big Olds! Some folks might rather have the 455 motor, but we really like the 350 4 barrel motor this one has. It has all the power you will ever need & gets much better gas mileage.

             The recent items repaired or replaced on this newly uncovered classic include new 4 Barrel Carb-$300, pulled,cleaned radiator-$175, new plugs, plug wires, Dist. Cap, & Rotor-$75, new oil & transmission fluid replaced incl/new filters-$100, new tires-$400, & new rear brakes-$100, & Front Brakes checked out in great shape. Turn the key, fires right up & go cruising Tonight! I could keep writing about this car on & on, but I have tried to describe it as it is. We keep shaking our heads & smiling to be able to find a car like this so many years after it was made, in this kind of condition. The car is an honest & straight 38 year old car from America's Bicentennial Year & very easy on the eyes & pocketbook. WOW, what a car.

          This LeSabre is being sold AS IS other than the things we have listed about the car. The car is offered with very LOW RESERVE & quite affordable BUY IT NOW PRICE!

           WE HAD A COUPLE QUESTIONS THAT I THOUGHT I WOULD EXPAND ON THE ANSWERS A BIT. ONE WAS ABOUT THE MILEAGE ON THE CAR & ALTHOUGH WE CANNOT GUARANTEE IT TO BE ORIGINAL MILEAGE, THE TITLE STATES THE MILEAGE AS ACTUAL. I BELIEVE IT IS ACTUAL FOR 2 MAIN REASONS, ONE BEING THE INTERIOR IS REALLY REMARKABLE EVEN INCLUDING THE LEATHER SEATS, CARPET & ORIGINAL HEADLINER, 2ND IS THE WAY THIS CAR DRIVES IS TIGHT, STRAIGHT & SO SMOOTH, BUT REMEMBER I AM THE ONE SELLING THE CAR!

I DID LIST THE MILEAGE WRONG WHEN I LISTED IT AT 34,608. IT IS 34,808. THE 8 LOOKED LIKE A 6 WHEN I LOOKED THE 1ST TIME. THAT IS ONLY 200 MILE MISTAKE BUT WANTED TO MAKE IT CORRECT.

THE OTHER QUESTION CONCERNED PAINT & ANY PREVIOUS DAMAGE TO THE CAR. I WAS NOT COMFORTABLE WITH ANSWERRING THAT SO I HAD A MORE KNOWLEDGEABLE CAR PERSON LOOK IT OVER TODAY & THEY SAID & ALSO SHOWED ME WHERE THE CAR HAD AT LEAST ONE REPAINT IN IT'S 38 YEARS (SAME FACTORY COLOR) BUT SAW NO PREVIOUS DAMAGE. THERE IS THE MENTIONED SCRATCH ON THE FRONT RIGHT FENDER ALTHOUGH WE HAVE HAD THAT CLEANED UP A BIT SO IT LOOKS MUCH BETTER THAN IT DID IN THE PHOTOS. I DID WANT TO MENTION THAT. HE ALSO SAID & SHOWED ME THERE WAS USUAL OR NORMAL SURFACE RUST UNDERNEATH THE CAR WHICH SHOULD BE EXPECTED WITH THIS AGE CAR.  WHILE HE WAS UNDER THE CAR HE SAID THE TRANSMISSION PAN LOOKED CLEAN BUT THE OIL PAN HAD SOME OLD GRIME UNDER ABOUT 1/2  OF IT, SAYING ONCE AGAIN VERY NORMAL FOR THE AGE OF THE CAR.

ONCE AGAIN NOT A NEW OR MINT AUTO, BUT VERY NICE FOR THE AGE & READY TO CRUISE 2 LANE OR INTERSTATE. ANY MORE QUESTIONS PLEASE EMAIL US THRU EBAY & WILL BE GLAD TO ANSWER ANYTHING WE CAN.

Buick Envision cabin detailed ahead of reveal later this month

Sun, 17 Aug 2014

Buick teased the arrival of the China-market Envision last month and gave us a few specs, now it's teasing the midsize crossover's interior and features. Having said it will "set a new benchmark in terms of space, safety, performance and specifications," we're told that equipment like the heated leather steering wheel and Bose-sourced active noise cancellation are market firsts in the segment.
Elsewhere, light will shine on occupants through the panoramic roof during the day and via ice blue ambient lighting at night, and seating surfaces are being shown off with dual-stitched leather. Lane departure warning and parking assist help keep the bodywork in order, stop/start ignition fitted to the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder with 256 horsepower and 260 pound-feet will help keep fuel economy up. One more convenience for the model's core buyers: a tailgate that can be partially opened.
The Normal, Tour, Sport and Off-Road driving modes come courtesy of FlexRide, that last one - meant for extra-light-duty dirt work, naturally - appearing on a Buick for the first time.

GM announces six new recalls, covering 3.5 million vehicles

Mon, 16 Jun 2014

General Motors has just initiated another crushingly large recall, this time affecting some 3.36 million vehicles built between 2000 and 2014 and sold in the US, Canada and Mexico. Once again, the issue surrounds the cars' ignition switches, which can be kicked out of the run position if they're carrying extra weight or if they experience a "jarring" event. In this particular case, though, GM will modify the keys, rather than the ignition itself.
A four-by-six-millimeter hole will be drilled into the key, which will more safely accommodate the weight of the key ring. As is usually the case, the work will be done free of charge. The recalled vehicles include the 2000 to 2005 Cadillac Deville, 2004 to 2005 Buick Regal LS and GS, 2004 to 2011 Cadillac DTS, 2005 to 2009 Buick Lacrosse, 2006 to 2008 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, 2006 to 2011 Buick Lucerne and 2006 to 2014 Chevrolet Impala. Only the Impala is still in production, and even then, it's only sold to fleet companies.
According to an official statement from GM, there have been eight crashes and six injuries due to this latest issue. As if this isn't a dire enough blow for GM, the company has announced five smaller recalls, covering 165,000 vehicles.

Buick picks top 11 highlights from first 11 decades

Sun, 21 Apr 2013

Buick has taken the time to highlight some of the company's personal points of pride from the past 110 years. Those include everything from the automaker's very first vehicle, the 1904 Model B, to what Buick claims is the world's first concept car: The 1938 Y Job (above). That one also walked away with the worst name for a design study.
All told, the automaker has sold 43 million vehicles through the end of last year, and those include the lusty 1963 Riviera. That model celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2013, and remains one of the brand's most iconic designs.
Of course, Buick is rightfully proud of its quickest model, too. The 1987 GNX managed a 4.6-second bolt to 60 mph in tests by Car and Driver, and it also took the honor of being one of the automaker's rarest creations at just 547 units. You can check out all 10 in the gallery above.
