1975 Buick LeSabre Convertible - Negotiable - $8000
1975 Buick LeSabre Convertible - with 89K actual miles. This is a local car and I am the third owner. I purchased it from the family. It is a very reliable and nice running vehicle.
I have owned it for 3 years and it starts and runs on a dime. The car has a nice convertible top and it does work, it does need a little help on the way down but functions fine. The top has 2 small tares, but the underneath membrane is in tact. I do keep the car in the garage, as I do not encourage keeping it out in inclement weather.
The floor and trunk are solid, the interior has a tare on the drivers seat along the stitching. I am confident this can be restitched by a qualified shop. The radio works, the speaker covers in the back need to be fastened, but that is minor.
I recently had the car painted and I do get a lot of "thumbs up" and compliments when I take it out. There are some imperfections, but seriously, its very nice looking for what it is! Its not perfect, but its not a rot box or bondo queen either. Yes, I am sure there are patches, but when I bought it, it was more weathered than anything else.
There is some of the moldings missing, I do have some of it in the trunk. This was the last year of the convertibles by GM; this is one of 5300 built. The other great thing about this car is it is documented since new. I have the original sales invoice it was sold new on December 12, 1974! It reads:
- AM Radio -> Its actually AM / FM with an 8 track
- Rear Speaker / Power Antena
- Air Conditioner - which I have not used; and I do not believe it works
- Speed Altert and Trip Odometer - (that is the "yellow" marker on the dash at 55 MPH - yes - you still hear the faint "buzz" from time to time.)
- Tinted Glass
- Bumper Guards
- Remote control Mirror - (which needs some adjusting!)
- Floor mats - (worn but they are still in there)
- Power windows
- ACC Group - (I do not know what that means)
- Protective side molding - (Missing as per pictures).
What you are getting is a great entry vehicle into the collector car hobby that is road worthy and reliable. Don"t get me wrong, it has its quirks, but I have driven it in very cold weather and she kicks over every time! It is a great car for a summer cruise to take the family out for some ice cream or a very cool cruise in. She has its share of wear and tare - but not junk by any means. It has nice acceleration and very good braking as well. I have had it up to 75 MPH and it cruises along nicely. This is a great summertime beach car for down the shore! The top down on a summer night, how cool is that folks?
What you are not getting is a Barrett Jackson / Mecum perfection trailer queen. She is a great car - meant to be driven and appreciated for what it is. One of the last convertible land cruisers that can go on a long haul easily and it is not that bad on gas.
