Description:

1989 Buick Reatta

VERY NICE CONDITION

ONE-OWNER REATTA

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION:

VEHICLE HISTORY: The former owner bought this well featured 2-seater brand new. It was driven sparingly, well maintained, and stored in the winters. His grand daughter inherited his baby, but does not have the need for a 2-seater, so this one is ready for a new owner to drive and enjoy. A clean CarFax and AutoCheck are available.

MARQUE HISTORY: The Buick Reatta was introduced in 1988. They were hand built at a special assembly plant in Lansing, MI, and was the first 2-seater from Buick since 1940. It was to be Buick’s “Image Car” to compete against BMW and Mercedes, with projected sales of 20,000 per year. Unfortunately, sales were not nearly that high and production ceased in 1991. Only 7,009 were produced for 1989 with a MRSP of $26,700!

VEHICLE CONDITION:

We do a mechanical and cosmetic inspection to each vehicle before listing it for sale. This report is included below will provide a reasonable description of the vehicle condition. Older vehicles are subject to normal wear and tear and we have tried to indicate the overall condition of the vehicle to the best of our ability. But, we can not always find everything that is not perfect with a vehicle, so independent inspections are welcome and encouraged. We drive each vehicle approximately 20 miles, but this is no indication of its long term road-worthiness. The only guarantee with an older vehicle is that someplace, sometime, something will need repaired!
