If your looking for an ultimate summer cruiser that makes a statement then this is the car for you. Original 2 owner car imported this year but due to another bolder investment I don’t have the time to get the necessary work done required to Vin this rare classic beauty. New convertible top and weather stripping professionally fitted. Unfortunately the original hubcaps and spare wheel were stolen during importation and I haven’t managed to source replacements yet. Serviced and ready for a real enthusiast to enjoy! Personalized plates not part of sale, this car does need work to get it vinned so if you’re a serious buyer I recommend you view or phone to discuss first prior to bidding. Reserve is considerably lower than cost, it was $9,000 just to get in the country, My loss! Your gain!

The following is a brief description for this car.

The name Electra appeared in 1959 for Buick's senior models, when Buick renamed its series. The name was followed by '225' which designated the top of the line, signifying the vehicles overall length of 225-inches. This would continue to be true a decade later, in 1969.
The Electra shared General Motors largest C-body with the Oldsmobile 98 and Cadillac. This tradition would continue for the Buick Electra 225 Custom Convertible in 1969. The name 'Custom' was added in 1965 when a new C-body was introduced. It represented a higher, plusher trim level than the standard Electras. The base price for the convertible in 1969 was $5,168 compared to $5,900 for a Cadillac DeVille Convertible. A total of 8295 examples of Deville Electra 225 Custom Convertibles were produced in 1969. The Electra continued to flourish and was Buick's flagship vehicle during the sixties. By the close of the decade it was given potent power-plants suitable for muscle cars of the era with 430cubes producing 360hp and outfitted the cars with comfort for everyday use. The Electra '225' was commonly called 'deuce and a quarter.'
