1962 Buick Electra Electra 225Very good condition. Drive anywhere. Complete interior removal and restore, bottom sandblasted and painted, exterior paint untouched, all brakes, transmission, etc serviced and restored. Original engine (rebuilt and resleaved for unleaded gas before I bought at the Atlantic City Classic Car Auction about 14 years ago). and transmission, rear end, etc etc. All original manuals, 1962 advertisements, spare parts, and a few options not installed in the car are included as well. Options include Autronic eye (not hooked up), Buick tissue dispenser, vacuum trunk release, original GM trash holder on floor, original handy mats and rare red mats, trunk mat, power adjustable side mirrors driver and passenger side(not installed), original 1962 spare tire (DON'T USE IT!), Sonomatic AM radio, etc etc. Everything.The car drives like it's on a cloud. Beautiful classic time machine that you just don't see anymore and causes conversations,reminiscing, and thumbs up everywhere you drive it..
Now for things thataren'tperfect. Tapping noise over 50 mph. I think it's a lazy lifter but it's been doing it since the first day I bought it 14 years ago and is the same now. Car goes 105 mph (just once), does not burn any smoke or use any oil. Old but shiny paint. a few small dings. A few small spots of bubbled paint. Short in dash wiring after restoration some interior, dash, and windshield wipers don't work. Need to trouble shoot and correct. Gasgaugedoesn't work, ground strap broke, but have new assembly to install. Power seats were restored and work perfect on the bench but need finish trouble shoot in car to work electrically. Needle for speed buzzer is stuck and needs to be fixed. Dashboard ash tray falls down, springs need to be changed, have them. That's all I can think of.
Not original parts: Interior color was red changed to burgundy (dark red). Looks so much better than the common red but can be changed back if you wanted to. Changed points for electronic ignition, you can't see it. Changed generator for alternator but it looks just like a generator. All brand new original stainless steel exhaust system from front to back. Same as original but will never rust. I think everything else is original oem parts.
I'm sure I'm forgetting something but hopefully the extensive pictures will show everything you need to know. Any questions at all please email me below so I can share the answers with others. I am selling my car which I never thought I would sell (a common event I'm sure) because I moved from NY with a 5 car garage to FL with only a 3 car garage. My other cars are outside so something has to give. It's time for a new home.
The car is located in Loxahatche Florida, near West Palm Beach, area code 33470. Willing to drive it to you to deliverwithina 100 mile area or help your car carrier of choice load it. My name is Bruce and my cell is 631 553-5388 if you need to talk to me. Thanks!
